Vaddio Unveils New Robotic Cameras, Offering Professional Quality

In a smart living and smart offices, you hardly find anything that is automated or at least leverages on technology to make the whole process easier, more handy, and more convenient for the users. The same automation system also applies to camera, in this case, surveillance camera or CCTV system you may find in a lot of buildings and workplaces. As with other automated systems, automated cameras which is also commonly known as robotic cameras is equipped with the capability to move and capture images on their own, usually when detecting movement or pixel fluctuation within its field of view. In particular, the majority of people also address the robotic cameras as PTZ cameras which stands for pan, tilt, and zoom capability they are able to perform. While the most common applications of robotic cameras is for broadcast and surveillance purposes, they also sees high number of adoption in business applications for video conferencing purposes. Responding to the more versatile applications and thus greater market demands, Vaddio simply does not want to miss out by unveiling their new robotic cameras which offers professional quality images with the latest Maicovicon MOS imaging sensor technology.

In its third iteration now, the Maicovicon MOS imaging sensor technology makes it possible for these new robotic cameras to deliver the same professional quality performance with a single chip, instead of three chip in standard broadcast robotic cameras solution. The improved imaging sensor in these new robotic cameras is also said to boast optimal low light performance for more flexible applications in various environments. Specifically, these Vaddio robotic cameras are rated at 0.4 LUX for its low-light performance, which translates to superior low-light performance and thus professional quality images. The new robotic cameras also include some other interesting extras like Super Sharp Detail technology and versatile output options such as 1080p/60 for both analog and digital inputs. Built to deliver professional quality performance, these new robotic cameras are hosted under PowerVIEW lineup which is aimed at broadcast, audio visual and professional market. They are PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30. Although featuring the same set of core technologies, they differ in some aspects of features including the optical zoom.

Within high demanding environments such as broadcast production, video conferencing system for business, and surveillance or monitoring system, high quality images are as important as the automation capability itself. In case of robotic cameras, users will expect to have both professional quality images (if possible come near as the professional broadcast equipments) as well as powerful features to support high quality performance. Vaddio answer to the demand with two new robotic cameras offers professional quality images and versatile features to suit to your professional applications, PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30. Both robotic cameras boast impressive optical zoom capability as far as 22x and 33x respectively, which is ideal for image capture and recording in vast environments. Plus, users can also benefit from their extra wide field of view up to 66 degrees with these robotic cameras.

However, the main highlight shared by these two robotic cameras is none but the latest Maicovicon MOS imaging sensor which is measured at 1/2.8" and features advanced progressive scan capability. In fact, Vaddio claims their new robotic cameras to be the first in the industry to offer such capability. Unlike other image sensors, the third generation Maicovicon image sensor in the robotic cameras intelligently adjust brightness, contrast, and color to the ambient light as necessary for professional quality image performance. The professional quality image is also ensured because these robotic cameras supports for high definition outputs with various format and resolutions up to 1080p/60. What's more, the 2.2 MP image sensor also operates at lower power as compared to other CMOS and CCD imaging sensors. Above all, Vaddio will also offer PowerVIEW HD-22 and HD-30 robotic PTZ cameras with Quick-Connect systems for seamless integration of input sources, power, and control. In summary, Vaddio new robotic cameras not only deliver the professional quality image performance needed in professional applications but also pack rich features for more flexible deployments.

Advanced Imaging Sensor and Features for Professional Quality

Getting everything to work for you in automated systems is indeed convenient. Especially in business environment and professional applications, automation is a way to improve productivity and enhance effectiveness. With automation, we can do more work in less time or simply get things done faster. With their new robotic cameras, Vaddio allows users in business and professional applications to enjoy professional quality image performance every time and almost effortless. These robotic PTZ cameras not only enable automated pan, tilt, and zoom function but also intelligently enhance the image quality with its advanced imaging sensor for the best experience. For camera, its imaging sensor is the main driving force which can make it either rise or fall in the first place and with robotic cameras, it is no different. As such, Vaddio decides to empower their latest PowerVIEW PTZ robotic cameras with the best imaging sensor in the market. The third generation Maicovicon MOS imaging sensor features smart calibration function for brightness, color, and contrast to ensure professional quality image performance in every applications. With the progressive scan, users can expect that these new robotic cameras will be able to deliver smoother and more realistic images and motion when and where needed.

Lighting is one of the most common issues when using camera, especially if the cameras are not equipped with flash or any lighting tools. Under poor lighting scenarios, such cameras often cannot deliver the best image performance and end up with noises all over the images, making them completely unusable. In advanced camera type such as DSLR, users are encouraged to set necessary parameter to make up for the lack of lights. However with robotic cameras, users simply cannot do it. After all, robotic cameras is made to work on their own, not manually controlled by users. To handle low-light environments, Vaddio new robotic cameras pack low lux illumination rating of 0,4, indicating superior performance. As such, you no longer have to be concerned over noise and details commonly found with most PTZ robotic cameras as PowerVIEW lineup is designed to deliver high quality images in high definition in any lighting conditions. That aside, users can also count on these two robotic cameras to deliver professional quality image performance in environment with uneven lighting conditions where the light and dark areas are overlapping each other thanks to the wider dynamic range. As for motion, Vaddio new robotic cameras are also fitted with Super Sharp Detail technology to reduce blur and automatically sharpen the captured images.
