Vaddio, the global leader in robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, introduces a new Quick-Connect technology that allows any Vaddio camera that supports a Quick-Connect Short-Range (SR) to output USB or Ethernet. Based on Vaddio’s Quick-Connect technology, that allows cameras to be extended up to 150 feet over Cat. 5 cabling, now USB cameras can be deployed in system designs where distance was an issue.
“Last year when we launched our USB PTZ cameras we were amazed at the amount of our integrators that wanted to integrate USB cameras into their projects” said, Rob Sheeley President of Vaddio. “And they also wanted to be able to choose between any of the Vaddio PTZ cameras depending upon their project requirement. That way they could have plenty of options when deciding what camera would work best for that room.”
Vaddio’s Quick-Connect USB is based on UVC (Universal Video Class Device) USB 2.0 standards that require no third-party drivers. An Ethernet network port is included for IP streaming supporting RTSP or HLS. Cameras are controlled through an Embedded Web Server that provides browser-based robotic camera control, and CCU image and color control. Additional outputs include HDMI and HD Analog component. An R-J45 provides an RS-232 interface for third-party control systems. An integrated LCD blue backlit display shows both the IP and the MAC addresses.
