Telemetrics is debuting its new HD 1080/60p camera to the European and international market. Designed for use with Telemetrics’ comprehensive camera robotics solutions and virtually every camera robotics systems available, the HDSC-1 1080/60p camera provides an HD imaging solution without the high cost of entry or integration/compatibility restraints. The compact and lightweight camera features a Sony 3.27-megapixel CMOS image sensor (Exmor IMX036) and a Canon 20X zoom lens for video image quality, color reproduction, and focal range.
“Our new HDSC-1 1080/60p camera enables deployment of a fully integrated HD camera robotics system for a wide range of applications,” said Anthony Cuomo, vice president and general manager, Telemetrics Inc. “It’s perfect for system upgrades or new projects to improve performance and operational efficiency with the Telemetrics’ proven reliability.”

Multiple camera systems can be genlocked and the cameras can be remotely controlled over a LAN or via RS-232C. A S/N ratio of 50dB and a sensitivity level of F5.6 at 2000 lux help to ensure high quality image output. For operator convenience, gain set-up is automatic with a manual override and up to five presets can be stored.
The HDSC-1 features a 20X integrated Canon lens with a focal length of 4.7–94mm and an aperture of F1.6 (wide) and F3.5 (telephoto). Auto focus with manual override and servo zoom control help to ensure smooth quiet operation. The horizontal field of view at wide angle is 55.4° and 2.9° for close-up shooting.
