Ordering Info

The Harrier 36x Autofocus-Zoom (AF-Zoom) Camera with USB/HDMI output offers simultaneous display of both HDMI and USB Video Class (UVC) v1.1 output with full HD image output at 1920 x 1080p (30 fps). The video output is SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M compliant.

The camera has a Sony Global Shutter CMOS sensor and a powerful 36x optical zoom lens (32x digital zoom). The global shutter sensor allows the capture of moving objects without the distortion which can occur with rolling shutters.

When the board is connected to a SuperSpeed USB 3.x host, the USB video output is enabled. 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 the Harrier USB SDK (application source code and Visual studio projects for C++/CLI, C#, and VB available on request from Active Silicon).

Special features of this USB/HDMI global shutter block camera include Digital Image Stabilization, Noise Reduction, Privacy Mask Function, Intelligent Motion Detection, Day & Night mode (Infrared Cut filter Removal, ICR) and High/Back Light Compensation (HLC/BLC).

1080p50 & 1080p60 support is available on request for volume OEMs.
Active Silicon also offers camera solutions with 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/HD-VLC™ video output and HDMI or USB only output. For more information contact our team.
