San Diego, CA — Viewbits, the industrial cameras division of CMI, is introducing their newest high definition PTZ (pan tilt zoom) camera for pro video users. Verio HDTM is an inexpensive, 1080i and p camera that pans, tilts, and zooms on command, via a wireless remote control or an optional keyboard-joystick. It is designed for broadcast studios, distance learning, videoconferencing, houses of worship, corporate training, and medical or scientific imaging.
Verio HD accommodates a wide variety of video formats. The output can be HD-SDI at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, HDMI, YPbPr, or CVBS (composite video).
Controlled by a wireless hand-held remote control with a range of up to 2,000 feet (609.6 meters), the Verio HD moves smoothly. The camera pans and tilts at a speed of half a degree per second to 80 degrees per second, and features a built-in 10x zoom lens. The camera is compact – 8 and a half inches wide (216 millimeters).
The optional keyboard/joystick provides intuitive control for video shots, and lets users store up to ten configurations. Preset pan and tilt speeds are 80 degrees per second.
“We are very enthusiastic about our new remote-control PTZ camera. Verio HD makes it easy to smoothly pan from one individual to another. It’s ideal for video shoots of group presentations such as seminars, panel discussions, or worship services,” noted Ray Asturias, Sales Engineer for Viewbits. “The robotic features of Verio HD help our customers to be even more creative. And the camera offers excellent value.”
The Verio HD PTZ camera is now shipping.
