The HV-HD30 HDTV Digital Color Camera from Hitachi incorporates three newly developed HDTV 1/3-inch, 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensors, thereby achieving high picture quality with smearless imaging. The multiformat output provides each 1080i, 720p, 576i and 480i camera outputs. The camera head of this high cost performance camera is a compact box type head weighing just 550 grams. A wide range of adjustments can be made remotely, providing versatility that makes the HV-HD30 usable as a remote observation applications, point of view camera, and in industrial applications such as factory automation, high-end monitoring, and medical applications.


  • Picture Quality
    Uses newly developed HDTV 1/3-inch, 1.3-Megapixel CMOS sensors to provide highquality, smearless images.

  • Compact and Lightweight
    The HV-HD30 is a compact C-Mount HDTV camera using 1/3-inch imaging devices. The camera itself weighs just 550g (without lens) and is compact enough to be used almost anywhere as a sub-camera or a special applications camera.

  • Multi-Format Output
    By switching the operating mode, the output signal is selectable eight system of SDI video signals. An RGB/YPBPR analog output (D-sub 15-pin) is also provided.

  • Low Power Consumption
    The use of CMOS sensors and the latest digital signal processing technology has dramatically reduced power consumption compared with past HDTV cameras.

  • Sophisticated Functions and High Performance
    Hitachi professional cameras feature such diverse digital signal processing technology as gamma, knee, masking, and DTL, these being accessible by up/down switches on the rear panel of the camera head, thereby providing high functionality and performance.

  • Remote Control
    Various adjustments can be made remotely, either from an optional compact remote control unit, or from a personal computer.
