Eyeing up a robotic camera26 February 2015
Telemetrics is showing its RoboEye integrated HD camera/robotic PTZ here at BVE 2015.
“RoboEye allows video systems to be designed and expanded with a professional HD camera robotics solution that delivers exceptional performance at a very competitive price point,” explained Anthony Cuomo, president, Telemetrics, Inc. “It provides out of the box operation for on-air and augmented reality systems.”
RoboEye, which features a Sony Exmor 2.18-megapixel CMOS image sensor to capture HD images, is equipped with a 30X zoom lens for extraordinary focal range. A S/N ratio of 50dB and a sensitivity level of F8 at 2,000 lux helps ensure high quality image output.
RoboEye provides native 1,920 x 1,080 HD-SDI and HDMI outputs, as well as SD composite video outputs in NTSC and PAL formats. For added versatility, its HD and video outputs can be used simultaneously and multiple cameras can be genlocked. For operator convenience, gain set-up is automatic with a manual override and up to 1,000 presets can be stored.
RoboEye’s advanced electronic interface includes a web-server enabling users to access video and control using a web-enabled device. Alternatively, the camera can be remotely controlled over an Ethernet connection or via RS-232C/422. A USB port is also included.
The integrated pan/tilt unit has a velocity of 0.01 – 90°/second, a stop accuracy of 0.03° and a feedback accuracy of 0.000375°. The
