Vaddio Broadens HD PTZ Solutions with Canon BU-Series Cameras

www.vaddio.comhires-canon-bu-cameras.jpgMINNEAPOLIS, MN (July 8, 2009) – Vaddio, the leading manufacturer and OEM distributor of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems, expanded its partnership with Canon this week by adding the Canon BU-45H and BU-50H to its product line of HD PTZ cameras.

“With our continued expansion into the broadcast market, adding Canon’s BU-series PTZ cameras to our line was a natural fit,? stated Rob Sheeley, president of Vaddio. “The BU-45H and BU-50H are easily integrated with our ProductionVIEW HD-SDI switcher and Precision Camera Controller. Over the coming months, we anticipate designing even more peripherals for the BU-series cameras.?

Vaddio’s ProductionVIEW HD-SDI camera console offers HD-SDI and SD-SDI video switching, video mixing and automated control functionality. Due to increased demand of Serial Digital Interface (SDI), Vaddio created this multi-camera control system with an integrated 6 x 2 HD/SD-SDI seamless video switcher. The system is designed to connect easily via a single coax cable for video. ProductionVIEW HD-SDI includes the 3 Gigahertz HD-SDI standard (SMPTE 424M) for 1080p video, as well as SMPTE 292M (HD-SDI at 720p or 1080i) and SMPTE 259M (SD-SD).

The Canon BU-45H weatherproof Robotic PTZ 16:9 camera features three 1/3-inch (1.67 million-pixel) CCD sensors and a 20x optical zoom lens that incorporates built in Image Stabilizer technology and optional Auto Focus operation. It also comes with 2 built-in ND filters that are remotely controllable. Outputs include HD-SDI or SD-SDI with embedded audio (using a third-party microphone) and standard-definition composite NTSC. The BU-45H can output HD-SDI and composite video simultaneously for high-definition recording and standard-definition monitoring at the same time. This is an ideal HD solution for versatile indoor/outdoor applications such as traffic and weather monitoring, large event broadcasts, tourism promotions and more.

The Canon BU-50H indoor PTZ camera incorporates the same three 1/3-inch (1.67 million-pixel) CCD sensors, a 20x optical zoom lens (with advanced Auto Focus function and Canon’s Image Stabilizer technology). Outputs include uncompressed HD-SDI or SD-SDI and standard-definition (SD) composite video. The HD-SDI can be used for HD recording and the composite output will support simultaneous SD monitoring. The BU-50H is capable of extremely smooth 300 degrees of panning and 80 degrees of tilt. Because of the extremely quiet P/T mechanisms, the BU-50H is well suited for very quiet environments such as conference facilities, lecture halls or houses of worship.

“We are delighted to work with Vaddio for our Robotic pan/tilt/zoom HD Camera Systems and supply the complete solutions that diverse end-user applications expect,? commented Alan Lewis, Marketing Manager, Broadcast and Communications division, Canon U.S.A.
