Vaddio turns ClearVIEW HD-18 white

AUTHOR: Inavate

Vaddio has released its ClearVIEW HD-18 high-definition robotic PTZ camera in an Arctic White colour.

The ClearVIEW HD-18W has the same features and functions as the existing camera including a 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.

Control runs via VISCA command protocol or the IR remote that is supplied. High-torque, micro-stepper precision robotics enhance performance with smooth pan/tilt operation for accurate camera movement and control. The HD-18 is compatible with any Polycom or Tandberg videoconferencing codec.

The new ClearVIEW HD-18W is also available as WallVIEW SR (Short Range) and WallVIEW CCU systems. The SR version provides power to the camera, and component HD video back to the Quick-Connect SR up to 100 feet over a single CAT-5 cable. Both the SR and CCU versions utilise the EZ-Port on the back of the camera, making installation even easier. An additional EZIM card for power and video, plugs into the back of the camera for the CCU system. The Quick-Connect CCU unit provides power, control and video up to 500 feet over CAT-5 cabling to the camera. In addition the CCU allows the user to adjust red and blue gain, pedestal, gamma, chroma, knee, iris and gain on the camera module and allows up to three scene settings to be stored in the CCU.
