MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Vaddio, the leading designer and manufacturer of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems used in the broadcasting, audio/visual and videoconferencing industries, announced today the release of the CeilingVIEW™ HD Integrated Ceiling Document Camera. The new cutting-edge system brings true high definition video quality to those projects where image quality and high resolution are critical.
The HD camera is based on a Sony® 2.1 Megapixel native HD imaging sensor capable of 1920 x 1080 at 1080i or 1280 x 720 at 720p. The HD image sensor provides precise color reproduction and edge focus, which is essential for displaying images on a large format HD monitor or for transmitting images through an HD videoconferencing system. The option of switching to Standard Definition is also available in either 16:9 (squeezed) or 4:3 (cropped) aspect ratios. The camera comes equipped with a 10X optical motorized zoom lens and 12X digital zoom range, for a total of 120X zoom.

HSDS incorporates a high bandwidth, low loss approach to distances. The HSDS cable system also provides power to the camera and control commands over the same Cat. 5 cables.
