The Harrier 55x AF-Zoom HD-SDI Camera is a 5MP high resolution camera with a powerful 55x optical hybrid zoom. The camera offers Full HD real-time HD-SDI video output at 1920 x 1080p (30 fps), which is SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M compliant. It also provides simultaneous analog output in Standard Definition (SD) video, and supports HD-VLC™ output mode for long cable length applications.

This autofocus-zoom block 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.

Special features of this autofocus-zoom block camera include Digital Image Stabilization, Digital Noise Reduction (2D+3D), Privacy Mask Function, High Light Compensation, Intelligent Motion Detection, Defog Function and Day & Night mode (Infrared Cut filter Removal, ICR).

If you are interested in long-reach HD digital video transmission, HD Visually Lossless Compression (HD-VLC) is a technique for compressing HD image data into a lower data rate SDI stream. This mode can be selected via the DIP switch or via serial commands. HD-VLC technology allows for much greater cable length (three to four times the distance), plus a greater ability to pass through multiple slip rings. A HD-VLC decoder is needed at the other end of the cable to convert back to HD-SDI and other formats (see Active Silicon’s “BlueBird SDI Adapter“). Find more information in our white paper “High-Definition Long-Reach Video Transmission” and watch this video.

Active Silicon also offers Harrier 55x AF-Zoom camera solutions with simultaneous USB/HDMI, HDMI or Ethernet H.264 IP video output. For more information contact our team.

Connector Specification - Harrier HD-SDI Camera Interface Board

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 is fitted with an industry standard 4-way connector for Vsync/PWM 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-002-B (see ordering information).

See Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board datasheet (download tab) 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-B (see ordering information).

See Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board datasheet (download tab) 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.

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-B (see ordering information).

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 (download tab) 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 (download tab) 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.
