High Def Remote Head Camera: HV-HD201

The Hitachi HV-HD201 is a remote head, multi format, high definition, camera featuring three 1/2 inch format CCD's and C-Mount optics.
The HV-HD201 uses Hitachi's digital signal processing technology for superior performance, and features a standard HD-SDI output along with analog component outputs, and an optional HDMI output, allowing the camera to be used in a wide variety of applications. The camera includes a standard 5.5 meter detachable cable connecting the head to the CCU. An optional 10 meter cable is also available for applications demanding greater separation between the head and CCU.


Features and Benefits:

  • High resolution, High sensitivity

    • Three 1/2 inch format 1.5M pixel CCD's, with an effective pixel count of 1440 (H) x 1080 (V), provide high sensitivity along with a horizontal resolution of 800 TV lines to meet the requirements of critical imaging applications.


  • Full Multi format camera Output

    • The camera features a user selectable multi format output to meet the needs of the imaging application. The output is menu selectable between 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720/59.94p and 720/50p for the HD-SDI and analog high definition component outputs, and the optional HDMI output (HDMI Connector; HV-HD201M only).
      There is also a standard definition VBS and Y/C output that is switchable between 480 / 59.94i and 576 / 60i.


  • Digital Signal Processing Enables Quality Enhancement Functions

    • A 12 vector color corrector with independent hue and saturation levels allows the user to achieve accurate color reproduction for use in image processing, microscopy, medical and broadcast applications.


  • Video Level Control

    • The proper video level can be maintained through the use of an Auto Electronic Shutter (AES) mode for bright scenes and an intelligent Auto Level Control (ALC) for dark scenes.


  • Scene Files

    • 4 user selectable scene files are available for the storage and recall of camera setup information, along with a Preset file that contains default factory setup information.


  • Other functions

    • AGC with programmable gain in 1db steps
    • ARIB Color Bars
    • SD memory card for user storage and recall of camera setup information


  • Remote Control

    • Remote control of all camera operating parameters is available using the optional Hitachi remote control or through the use of a PC.
