Full HD 1080p resolution is available with 20x optical zoom and a choice of and HD-SDI or DVI interfaces. Standard resolution versions are available with 18x optical zoom, or with Wide-D technology and a 28x optical zoom. Sony’s Wide-D technology combines progressive scanning and image processing to improve image display. The same image is captured twice: once at normal shutter speed, and again at a high shutter speed then the two images are combined to reproduce the high contrast of the original view.
All models can be desk or ceiling-mounted and offer an impressive pan angle of ±170? with pan speed of 100?/sec and tilt angle of +90?/-20? and tilt speed of 90?/sec. For ceiling mounted configurations, an electronic flip function electronically inverts the image of a tracked object as it passes under the dome to maintain the correct display. All models feature manual focus, autofocus and a ‘one-push’ autofocus function. The cameras can also be remotely controlled through RS232/RS422 and the supplied IR remote commander.
