Vaddio™ Brings 3-Chip Broadcast Camera Performance with New PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30 PTZ Cameras

PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30 Cameras Built Around New Maicovicon MOS Imaging Sensor Technology

April 8, 2013

Vaddio’s new PowerVIEW PTZ cameras bring 3-Chip broadcast camera performance to a Single-Chip camera. Based on third-generation Maicovicon MOS imaging sensor technology, the HD-22 and HD-30 improve color and brightness uniformity, ensuring an improved high definition image quality.

“This year at NAB we’ll be launching our new state-of-the-art robotic PTZ cameras: the PowerVIEW line,” explained Rob Sheeley, CEO of Vaddio. “Our customers HD video requirements demanded that we create a new standard in PTZ robotic cameras that could be used in the most demanding broadcasting applications. PowerVIEW delivers such a stunning image quality, and produces unbelievable detail and color balance, that it’s hard to believe it’s coming from a single chip camera.”

The HD-22 comes equipped with a multi-element 22x optical glass auto-focus zoom lens that provides up to a 66-degree field-of-view for a wide range of telephoto or wide-angle shot options. An impressive 128x wide dynamic range covers both light and dark contrasted areas and a Color Capture light system produces vivid color images without color saturation or filtering. The HD-30 has a robust 30x optical power zoom, capable of capturing the most detailed video images regardless of room size.

The PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30 are the industry’s first robotic PTZ cameras to use the new MOS 1/2.8-Progressive Scan imaging sensor. By suppressing uneven brightness, the HD-22 and HD-30 provide an unmatched low-light performance of 0.4 LUX and a Super Sharp Detail technology for auto-sharpening fuzzy images. 

Outputs include native 1080p/60/50 Digital HDMI and analog component video resolutions, ideal for use in the highest demanding HD camera applications requiring a 3-Chip PTZ camera.
