Ordering Info

The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom USB/HDMI Camera is a compact, low-power block camera option with simultaneous display of both HDMI and USB Video Class (UVC) v1.1 output.

This USB/HDMI autofocus-zoom camera is fitted with a 2MP Panasonic progressive scan CMOS sensor, offers 10x optical zoom (32x digital zoom), measures only 62.4mm x 55 x 45.5 (L x W x H) and weighs 152g. The up to 1080p60 Full HD video output is SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M compliant.

USB Video output is enabled when the board is connected to a SuperSpeed USB 3.x host. The HDMI output is enabled when an HDMI cable is connected. On power up, the camera video mode may be selected by DIP switch settings on the board. Camera video modes, along with other functions, may also be controlled by sending VISCA commands over RS-485/RS-232/TTL or over the Harrier Virtual COM port, or using UVC commands. The USB interface serves as (UVC) video output, USB based control input port and optional power supply. An example UVC video application (with source code and Visual studio projects for C++/CLI, C#, and VB) is available on request from Active Silicon.

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.

Active Silicon also offers block camera solutions with 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/HD-VLC™ video output and HDMI or USB only output. For more information contact our team.

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 VSync signal output and test pattern/reset control inputs.

Connector type: JST SM04B-SRSS-TB

Mating cable: A suitable cable is available as part of the cable kit AS-CIB-CBLKIT-003-A (see ordering information below).

See Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet for pin assignments and control options.

Power and Control Connector (J3)

The interface board is fitted with an industry standard 10-way connector for power and serial control.

Connector type: JST SM10B-SRSS-TB

Mating cable: A suitable cable is available as part of the cable kit AS-CIB-CBLKIT-003-A (see ordering information below).

See Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet for pin assignment and output options.

Video and Control Mode DIP Switch (SW1)

The interface board is fitted with an 8-way DIP switch (SW1) to enable selection of camera video format on power-up, and VISCA camera control communication modes.

See Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet for the configuration of the DIP switch elements.

VISCA Control:

The VISCA serial signal is routed through the interface board and to the camera. However, this serial signal is also connected to the camera interface board; extended VISCA commands (not used by the camera) may be used to control the interface board.

For information on interface board operation using extended VISCA serial commands, refer to the Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet.
