Chula Vista, California, November 10, 2015 – Ease of operation, clear and detailed picture, low total cost of ownership: these are the key factors most houses of worship consider when adding any new piece of technology, and it’s why the PTZ camera series from Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Security Solutions Group is an ideal solution for churches of all sizes. The PTZ Series cameras support clear and lively video conferencing, video recording and net broadcasting.

The PTZ Series includes six models: the VZ-HD3600A; VZ-HD3650A; VZ-HD3700A; VZHD3780A; VZ-HD4000A; and VZ-HD4900A. The 3600/3700 Series cameras feature a 10X optical zoom lens with Full HD, while the VZ-HD4000A and VZ-HD4900A models use a 25x optical zoom lens.

Ideal for houses of worship, the PTZ Series offers clear and detailed monitoring on screen with 2.07 million effective pixels, as well as 1920 x 1080 resolution. For large worship spaces and low-light shooting, the PTZ Series also offers adaptive noise reduction and up to seven cameras can be-daisy-chained together to eliminate the need for multiple-control cables.

Thanks to high-quality image processing, the PTZ Series features a high signal-to-noise ratio and high resolution using noise reduction technology, while producing faithful color reproduction using a non-linear matrix circuit, and reducing false color signal phenomena. In addition, a Full HD, two million pixel CMOS imaging sensor offers bright colors and high sensitivity.

The PTZ Series also offers 32 preset memories for pan/tilt/zoom and other settings using the remote control unit, and up to 127 presets using external control via RS-232C or RS-422. Various digital video interfaces are available, including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and DVI-I.
