Canon has introduced the XU-80 remote control pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) HD camera. Incorporating a 2.1 Megapixel sensor, a 20x zoom lens (with additional 12x digital zoom), and features such as genlock input and HD-SDI output in a small design, the XU-80 camera is ideal for outdoor sports and event broadcasting, weather and traffic POV camera installations, houses of worship, indoor event videography, image magnification, education, security, medical, and many other applications. The XU-80 can simultaneously panning and tilting at a maximum rate of 60 degrees per second. The camera features a pan range of ±180 degrees and a tilt range of +220 degrees/-40 degrees. It also has maximum noise level of NC30. The housing of the XU-80 meets the IP-55 enclosure rating for waterproof and dustproof integrity. It is also equipped with an integral waterproof microphone. When shooting under low-light conditions in Night Mode, the XU-80 can acquire extra brightness by using a slow-shutter function. The camera’s black & white mode, without the infrared cut filter, will also support shooting in near-darkness. Dynamic Range Compensation allows for shooting in environments with a high contrast of light and shade by automatically correcting the contrast of the video according to the range of scene illumination. Control can be toggled between RS-232 and RS-422. The XU-80 weighs 14.5 lbs. and includes a built-in handle. Price: NA
