April 18, 2016
MINNEAPOLIS, MN and NAB SHOW, LAS VEGAS, NV – April 18, 2016 – Vaddio (www.vaddio.com), the premier provider of conferencing and production audio visual solutions, today announced the newest addition to the Vaddio RoboSHOT™ product line: Vaddio RoboSHOT 20 UHD, the industry’s first Enterprise-Class 4K PTZ camera with HDBaseT™. The RoboSHOT 20 UHD delivers Ultra HD (4K) video with pristine color reproduction even in challenging lighting conditions, and delivers exceptional HD (1080) video compared to 3-chip PTZ cameras, at a fraction of the price. With native HDBaseT connectivity for cable extension over single CAT5e, and simultaneous HDBaseT, HDMI, HD-SDI and IP streaming outputs, RoboSHOT 20 UHD introduces a whole new class of camera quality, performance and manageability for live event production, lecture capture and conferencing applications.
Exceptional Quality, Unmatched Price Performance The Vaddio RoboSHOT 20 UHD camera features a 9.03 Megapixel Ultra High Definition (4K) sensor that delivers native 2160p/30 (3840 x 2160) video. The 74° horizontal field of view – the widest field of view of any Ultra HD PTZ camera today – and the 20x zoom, make RoboSHOT 20 UHD ideal for any production application in small or large environments. RoboSHOT 20 UHD also supports HD (1080 and 720) video resolutions, delivering broadcast-quality video that surpasses significantly higher priced 3-chip cameras.
“We are thrilled for the innovative RoboSHOT 20 UHD camera to be the first new product launched since the addition of Vaddio to Milestone,” commented Scott Gill, CEO, Milestone AV Technologies. “Staying true to Vaddio’s heritage of innovation, the RoboSHOT 20 UHD is designed with advanced video technology and industry-leading connectivity and control options. We look forward to continuing the Vaddio legacy of bringing exceptional conferencing and production solutions to our dealers.”
Like all RoboSHOT series cameras, the RoboSHOT 20 UHD comes fully equipped with Vaddio’s TriSynchronous Motion technology, a unique, silent, direct-drive motor system that allows all three axes of the camera (pan, tilt and zoom) to move simultaneously for ultra smooth, natural camera motion. The precise, fast, fluid operation and pan and tilt movements from 120° per second down to 0.35° per second enable fast moving or slow moving objects to be captured without vibration and bounce.
Vaddio’s innovative enhancements optimize quality and light handling for even the most challenging applications. Advanced Digital Noise Reduction and High Dynamic Range enable the RoboSHOT 20 UHD to outperform other cameras in high contrast and low light situations.
Ultimate Flexibility RoboSHOT 20 UHD can be directly paired with Vaddio’s OneLINK™ HDMI receiver providing camera power, control and video over a single cable, significantly simplifying and accelerating installation. OneLink HDMI extends UHD Video, 100BaseT Ethernet, RS-232, and power up to 100 meters/328 feet on a standard CAT5e cable. Based upon HDBaseT technology, the RoboSHOT 20 UHD can also be directly connected to HDBaseT-compliant AV switchers.
RoboSHOT 20 UHD is the only camera in its class to provide simultaneous, direct from camera audio/video streaming via HDMI, HDBT, HD-SDI and IP, providing production operators a live preview from any camera to insure the right shot at the right time.
The RoboSHOT 20 UHD also includes a 12v DC, 3.0 Amp power connector and supply for locallypowered installations, or Power Over Ethernet Plus Plus (LTPOE++) for network-powered installations.
Enterprise Class, Remote Manageability RoboSHOT 20 UHD incorporates the Vaddio Remote Management system pioneered in the RoboSHOT USB products, for remote monitoring, management and control of a distributed camera network. IP, Telnet and RS-232C interfaces are included, and a built-in Web-server enables both browser control and IP-live preview and setup from PCs, Macs and mobile devices including iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
Vaddio products are Made in the USA and unique to the industry, offer a 2-year standard warranty.
