Ordering Info

The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom 3G-SDI Camera is a compact, low-power camera option with real-time 3G-SDI video output and 10x optical zoom.

Fitted with a 2MP Panasonic progressive scan CMOS sensor, the camera also provides simultaneous analog output in Standard Definition (SD) video, and supports HD-VLC™ output mode for long cable length applications.

The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom 3G-SDI Camera measures only 43 x 45.5 x 75mm with a weight of 152g. It offers SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M compliant video output up to 1080p60 Full HD. Sophisticated camera features include Real-time True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Day & Night mode – Infrared Cut filter Removal (ICR), Digital Noise Reduction (2D + 3D DNR) and Digital Image Stabilization. The camera can be controlled using VISCA protocol serial communications over TTL, RS-232 and RS-485, or using Pelco – D/P control protocol. DIP switch settings control the selection of serial communication protocol, HD-VLC output and camera video output mode on power-up.

Active Silicon offers two variants of Harrier 10x AF-Zoom Cameras with SDI video output. The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom SDI Camera is more compact and provides EX-SDI and HD-TVI output options. The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom 3G-SDI Camera also delivers high quality 3G/HD-SDI output, however it is made up from a Harrier 10x AF-Zoom (LVDS) Camera with a Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board; this enables support for HD-VLC output, which we recommend for use with extra long cable lengths and the Bluebird SDI Adapter. The interface board can also be modified to add custom video processing features.

For more information please talk to our team to discuss the best option for your application.

The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom Camera is also available with USB and/or HDMI output instead of 3G-SDI.

Connector Specification

KEL30 Connector (J1)

The interface board on the camera 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 on the camera 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 on the camera 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.

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).

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.

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.
