The XU-81/XU-81W is a versatile, remote control, indoor/outdoor single 1/3" CMOS camera system, featuring a compact, highly waterproof and dustproof design which is ideal for challenging locations and environmental conditions. Applications include: Outdoor and Indoor Event Broadcasting, Weather POV, Traffic POV, Outdoor Monitoring, Education and Video Conferences. For outdoor applications, the XU-81W is equipped with a motorized ND filter and a wiper unit. An optional washer unit is also available.
A single 1/3-inch CMOS imaging sensor with a 2.1 Megapixel, 20x HD zoom lens and Auto Focus captures exceptional, high-quality images in full-HDTV format with excellent colour reproduction.
An optional operation unit (OP-300) is available that enables smooth pan and tilt movements while zooming using a single pre-set button on the control panel. This allows for on-air movements similar to manually-operated cameras. For long distance operation the camera can also be controlled from a PC using an internet connection. HD-SDI output delivers beautiful images from a distance of up to 100m.
The XU-81/XU-81 W offers a wide angle of rotation (Pan +/- 180° and Tilt +220° to -40°) and precise 40° per second movement in Standard Mode. High Speed Mode accelerates movement by 50% to 60° per second. Operation is very quiet with a noise rating of NC<30 in Standard Mode, enabling use in areas such as libraries or conference rooms. An image flipping function automatically flips images so they are not upside down due to the angle tilt.
Compact and lightweight, the camera weighs only 6.6kg (XU-81) or 7kg (XU-81W) and includes a handle for easy portability. It can be mounted upright, inverted or suspended from a ceiling for shooting in all kinds of locations.
1080i or 720p HD output is available to match existing systems. Control can also be toggled between RS-232C and RS-422, making the XU-81/XU-81W extremely adaptable to new and existing multi-camera environments.
Super-sensitivity Night Mode enables shooting at a brightness level of just 0.2 lux- ideal for shooting in dark rooms or at night. Backlight compensation increases the visibility of backlit dark subjects.
