Vaddio Launches PTZ Cameras for HD

Vaddio showcased its new ClearVIEW HD-18, the Canon BU-45H and BU-50H, as well as the ControlVIEW XHD and ProductionVIEW HD-SDI seamless switchers.

Vaddio, a manufacturer and OEM distributor of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems, plans this week to showcase its new ClearVIEW HD-18, the Canon BU-45H and BU-50H, as well as the ControlVIEW XHD and ProductionVIEW HD-SDI seamless switchers.

"We just launched our own high-definition PTZ camera, the ClearVIEW HD-18, as well as ControlVIEW XHD and ProductionVIEW HD-SDI, the latest additions to our line of seamless video switchers and camera controller," saidRob Sheeley, president of Vaddio, in a statement. "We have expanded our partnership with Canon to include the BU-series of high-definition PTZ cameras and as the year progresses, we anticipate adding more products and partnerships to complement our existing line."

The ClearVIEW HD-18 is equipped with a 1/3-inch, 1.3 megapixel CCD imaging sensor, a glass multi-element wide dynamic zoom lens (18x optical), a tally light, and a 1.8-lux rating. The company claims it is the only multiformat PTZ camera that delivers component HD in 1080p, 1080i, or 720p and simultaneous SD video. The HD-18 is compatible with any Polycom or Tandberg videoconferencing codec.

Vaddio says the two new Canon Robotic PTZ cameras--the BU-45H and BU50H--will also be unveiled at InfoComm 09,. The Professional L Series Fluorite lens of the BU-45/50H cameras ensures optimal resolution, contrast, and color reproduction, while delivering clarity and image quality. Because it's an ultra-low dispersion (UD) lens, chromatic aberration is reduced.

The Canon BU-45H weatherproof remote control Robotic PTZ 16:9 camera features three 1/3-inch (1.67 million-pixel) CCD sensors and a 20x optical zoom lens. Outputs include HD-SDI or SD-SDI with embedded audio (using a third-party microphone) and standard-definition composite video. The Canon 50H indoor PTZ camera incorporates three 1/3-inch (1.67 million-pixel) CCD sensors, a 20x optical zoom lens, an advanced Auto Focus function, and Canon's Image Stabilizer technology. Outputs include uncompressed HD-SDI or SD-SDI and standard-definition (SD) composite NTSC video.

The new ControlVIEW XHD is an automated robotic PTZ camera controller with HD, RGBHV and SD video switching, video transitions, and camera preset trigger functionality. ControlVIEW XHD is designed to control up to six PTZ cameras (or other video sources) and assign up to 72 total preset positions. The 6x1 switcher accepts analog SD, HD, and RGBHV on all inputs and up/downscales these signals to dual program outputs at either an SD, HD or RGBHV resolution.

The ProductionVIEW HD-SDI camera console offers HD-SDI and SD-SDI video switching, video mixing, and automated control functionality. Vaddio created the ProductionVIEW HD-SDI multicamera control system with an integrated 6x2 HD/SD-SDI seamless video switcher. It's designed to connect via a single coax cable for video.
