The 3G-SDI/HD-SDI Autofocus-Zoom Block Camera (AS-CIB-3GSDI-002-7520A-A) offers 30x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom. It provides real-time 3G-SDI video output over a 75 Ohm (H.FL) micro-coax cable. Additionally it features HD-VLC™ compressed video technology for long cable length applications and (when in SD modes) simultaneous analog output with square pixels. The camera offers SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M compliant video output up to 1080p60 Full HD.

Based on the Sony FCB-EV7520A camera with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, the camera guarantees high-quality imaging even in low-light conditions. It builds upon the market leading specifications of Sony’s world-renowned FCB Series features including Advanced Noise Reduction, Auto ICR, Spherical Privacy Zone Masking and Wide Dynamic Range, which makes this camera solution suitable for a variety of demanding applications. The camera can be controlled using the VISCA protocol with TTL, RS-232 or RS-485 serial communications. DIP switch settings control the selection of serial communication protocol, HD-VLC output and camera video output mode on power-up.

This camera is also available with USB and/or HDMI video output instead of 3G-SDI output.

Connector Specification

KEL30 Connector (J1)

The interface board is fitted with a 30-way miniature connector to link to the video output connector on the camera.

Connector type: KEL USL00-30L.

Mating cable: A 30-way micro coaxial cable (AS-CIB-USL30-100MM) is supplied with the camera. Lengths available: KEL USL20-30SS-010-C (100mm length) or KEL USL20-30SS-005-C (50mm length).

Input/Output Connector (J2)

The interface board is fitted with an industry standard 4-way connector for test pattern and reset control, plus VSync out.

Connector type: JST SM04B-SRSS-TB

Mating cable: A suitable cable is available as part of the cable kit AS-CIB-CBLKIT-002-A (see ordering information below).

See Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board datasheet for pin assignments and control options.

Power and Control Connector (J3)

The interface board is fitted with an industry standard 9-way connector for power, serial control and analog video out.

Connector type: JST SM09B-SRSS-TB

Mating cable: A suitable cable is available as part of the cable kit AS-CIB-CBLKIT-002-A (see ordering information below).

See Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board datasheet for pin assignments and output options.

Analog Video Out (Pin 3, J3)

Standard resolution composite analog is simultaneously available in HD modes 720p50 (for PAL) and 720p60/59.94 (for NTSC). There are two options for the analog output, selectable via serial control:

(a) the 1280 pixel wide HD image can be cropped to 960 wide, by cropping a 120 pixel strip off each side to make a 4:3 aspect ratio Standard Definition (SD) signal.

(b) by pre-warping the image, such that when displayed on a HD monitor in the monitor’s stretch-to-fit mode, the original full-width HD signal will be displayed correctly at 16:9 aspect ratio.

Both methods ensure the displayed pixels remain square and that the image is not distorted.

JTAG Connector (J4)

Test connector used in manufacturing for circuit verification.

3G-SDI Output Connector (J5)

The interface board is fitted with a Hirose H.FL Micro Coaxial Connector (75 Ohm).

Connector type: Hirose Micro Coaxial Connector (Receptacle), part number H.FL-R-SMT(01).

Mating connector: Use mating cable with 75 Ohm characteristic impedance, for example Hirose part number H.FL75-2LP-084H-A-100. A suitable cable is available as part of the cable kit AS-CIB-CBLKIT-002-A (see ordering information below).

Video and Control Mode DIP Switch (SW1)

The interface board is fitted with a 4-way DIP switch to select various video output and control modes.

The DIP switches to select the Video Format are read on power-up only. Therefore, to change mode using the DIP switches, power down the camera, set the switches and then power up the camera. DIP switches will only be effective for the operating modes supported by the camera currently in use.

See Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board datasheet for the configuration of the DIP switch SW1.

Communications Mode Selection (SW2)

The interface board is also fitted with a 2-way DIP switch to select the serial communications standard. It allows to choose between RS-232 VISCA communications, RS-485 VISCA comms with RS-485 termination enabled, RS-485 VISCA comms with RS-485 termination disabled and TTL VISCA communications.

See Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board datasheet for the details and configuration of the DIP switch SW2.

Digital Transmission Standard Selection (SW3)

The interface board is fitted with a 1-way DIP switch to select the SMPTE or HD-VLC digital output standards.

OFF = SMPTE compliant output.

ON = HD-VLC compressed output.

Status LED

The interface board is fitted with a multi-color LED to indicate camera status.
Solid Green: Camera and interface board are powered and working correctly.
Solid Red: The interface board is powered but there is a fault/problem – e.g. no video data is being received; internal power supply voltages outside specification; temperature is over recommended limit.
