Kappa Full HD cameras are available as HD-SDI and as 3G-SDI versions. The HD-SDI version can be switched between 25 and 30 fps, the 3G-SDI version between 50 and 60 fps. With 60, 50, 30, or 25 images per second nothing is lost, without compression or image lag! The 16:9 format enables maximum presence on all monitors. Equipped with 1/2" CMOS sensors with high light sensitivity and Global Shutter, it’s particularly interesting for dynamic scenes and critical lighting situations.
Compact easy-to-use stand-alone system
The single-cable monitor connection, in drag chain compatible quality, is designed for distances of up to 100 meters. Furthermore, HD-SDI (3G SDI) enables the use of existing coaxial cables. Putting the HDC cameras into use is very simple; as with a video system, neither IP addresses nor network structures are necessary. The HD video signal, meeting standard 3G-SDI (SMPTE424M) and HD-SDI (SMPTE292M) guarantees compatibility with all peripherals. International standards are met internally as well. The small, compact design enables form adaptations for different OEM demands.
Rugged quality & development based on design assurance (DO 178, DO 254)
The robust full HD cameras for rough outdoor environments come with protection class IP 67 with high-level protection against frost, saline environments, and other environmental effects. The rugged design, with additional qualifications and screw-in C mount, expands the possibilities for use in the most extreme environments, even with high temperature fluctuations as well as vibration and shock.
Fields of application: from driver vision systems to industrial monitoring
Important fields of application for HDC-based full HD cameras: driver vision systems for vehicles, various aviation applications, and monitoring, e.g. industrial monitoring.
Additional scope for customer-specific solutions with HDC3 platform
The underlying HDC3 development platform offers maximum flexibility for further application-specific optimizations, e.g. additional sensors, global shutter options, format switching function, various settings and controls, SD-SDI, additional analog/NTSC output.
