Vaddio has released its first single CCD, high-quality, HD robotic PTZ camera, the Vaddio ClearVIEW HD-18. It is the only multiformat PTZ camera from Vaddio that delivers Component HD in 1080p, 1080i, or 720p and simultaneous SD video.

Vaddio has released its first single CCD, high-quality, HD robotic PTZ camera, the Vaddio ClearVIEW HD-18.

"Vaddio has always built technology around other manufacturers' PTZ cameras, from our Quick-Connect Cat-5 cabling systems that make installation easier to our ProductionVIEW line of video switchers and joystick camera controls systems," said Rob Sheeley, president and CEO of Vaddio, in a statement. "We designed ClearVIEW HD-18 to fill a void in the robotic camera market: a single CCD, high-definition, PTZ camera with a high-power zoom lens."

The ClearVIEW HD-18 comes with a 1/3, 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, for high-quality images in a wide range of HD video applications. It is the only multiformat PTZ camera from Vaddio that delivers Component HD in 1080p, 1080i, or 720p and simultaneous SD video, according to the company.

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