Ordering Info


The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom SDI Camera is a compact, low power camera option with real-time full HD SDI video output (via MMCX connector) and 10x optical zoom.

Fitted with a 2MP Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor, this SDI block camera provides 3G/HD-SDI video and also offers EX-SDI (compressed video), HD-TVI and CVBS output options that enable the use of longer transmission cables (compared to SDI).

The Harrier 10x AF-Zoom SDI Camera measures only 62.4 x 43 x 44mm (L x W x H) and weighs 112g. It offers SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M compliant Full HD video output up to 1080p60. 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 or Pelco – D/P Control Protocol.

An evaluation kit for the Harrier 10x AF-Zoom SDI Camera is available.

Active Silicon can also supply the same camera in small quantities with a 1/3’’-type Nuvoton CMOS sensor , contact us to learn more.

If you require a 3G-SDI solution for extra long cable lengths we recommend a further variety, the Harrier 10x AF-Zoom 3G-SDI Camera. It also delivers high quality 3G/HD-SDI output, but is made up from a Harrier 10x AF-Zoom (LVDS) Camera with a Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board. The interface board enables support for HD-VLC output, which allows for visually lossless long reach HD video transmission. In addition, the camera interface board can be customized, for example, to add custom video processing features.
