Digital Signal Processor: A 3rd generation Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chip utilizingHitachi's most recent processing technology (0.18”m, internalcore, 1.8V drive, and 3 million gates) is contained on a singlenewly developed ultra LSI (large scale integration) chip. Thenew DSP enables the camera to achieve its small size, lowpower consumption, and high stability.
Performance in a cube: The camera is built into a compact cube with a short depthdimension for easy incorporation into systems where space iscritical. The multi-functional design is conducive to a widerange of industrial, medical, and other general purpose imagingapplications.
High picture quality: High Sensitivity and High Resolution are achieved through theuse of three 1/3 inch CCD's, each with 410,000 picture elements(470,000 PAL). Together with the 12-bit analog to digital (A/D)converter and 14-bit accelerated DSP a horizontal resolution of800TV lines and a high signal to noise ratio (S/N) of 64 dB (62dB PAL) is obtained with the use of dynamic noise reduction(DNR). Clear high quality low noise images are now possibleeven in a high gain mode.
Adjustable Flange back: A built-in flange back adjustment allows the cameras opticalfocus to be optimized with the selected optical system.
Auto Shading Compensation (ASC): The ASC function can automatically compensate for color shadingerrors caused by interaction between the lens and prismassembly in C-Mount optical systems. Two modes of shadingare provided and can be selected according to the camerasapplication, a color shading mode or a two-dimensional luminance-shading mode.
Four scene files are provided for the setup, storage and recallof all camera functions.The camera configuration can be easily changed through theselection of a scene file.
A six-vector color corrector allows independent adjustment ofthe hue and saturation of the primary and secondary colors sothat optimum color fidelity can be maintained.
A versatile color detail adjustment circuit enables the selectionand independent adjustment of detail in two separate colors.This function can be used as a flesh tone detail" circuit forsmoothing human complexion, or for enhancing a color contourfor increased visibility.
Dynamic Chroma Compensation is provided to maintain propercolor saturation in scenes with high luminous levels. Dynamicrange is expanded allowing high quality reproduction of outdoorand other difficult scenes.
Intelligent Auto Level Control (ALC) can be selected to allowunattended operation over a wide range of light levels. Digitallight metering, CPU controlled automatic gain control (AGC),lens iris, and an auto electronic shutter (AES) operate undercontinuous control to compensate for varying light levels. AutoTracking White Balance (ATW) can also be selected to maintainproper color temperature with changing light levels. Note:AES functions continuously only with a manual override lens.
Flare Compensation can be adjusted to compensate for colorchanges in dark areas, improving color fidelity, when a zoomlens is used on the camera.
Picture polarity can be selected as normal (positive) or negative,to suit the imaging requirements.
A full complement of video outputs is provided on the camera.Outputs include composite, Y/C, RGB, or Y/ R-Y/ B-Y. Simultaneous output of composite, Y/C and an additional componentsignal is possible, utilizing two separate output connectors.
The camera can be synchronized with external devices usingthe genlock input or by use of external HD and VD signals.Composite sync, HD and VD signals can be output for use withother equipment.
An External Trigger Signal can be used to provide the captureof an image. Several trigger modes are available to suit theintended application. A long term integration mode of up to 8seconds can be used to capture images at extremely low lightlevels.
An RS-232C port is provided for bi-directional communicationswith an external device, allowing complete control, setup andoperation of all camera functions.
