MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March 12, 2008) – Vaddio, the leading manufacturer and OEM distributer of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems used in the broadcasting, audio/visual and videoconferencing industries, announced today the release of the brand-new WallVIEW Universal PRO Z700.
The WallVIEW Universal PRO Z700, built around the Sony® BRC-Z700 high definition pan/tilt/zoom camera, combines high picture quality with three 1/4-type CMOS megapixel sensors and achieves a resolution of 1,120,000 total pixels. It also features a 20x optical zoom lens with an optical image stabilizer, allowing users to clearly capture small or distant objects.
The WallVIEW's unique cabling system allows the integrator to use standard CAT-5 cabling to run HD/SD video, power and camera control (both serial & IR) up to 500 feet. Vaddio’s High Speed Differential Signaling™ (HSDS) provides for a high bandwidth, low loss video signal to ensure high definition quality up to 500’ (152.4 m). Other features include the ability to adjust the video signals depending on the length of cabling used, with a four-position distance adjustment for Cat. 5 cable. There is also a Y-Gain for cable length skew adjustment and an IR port for IR signal forwarding from the camera.
The WallVIEW Universal PRO Z700 also includes a 1-RU rack mount Quick-Connect PRO Universal Interface and EZIM (EZCamera Interface Module), a custom wall mount camera bracket with mounting hardware and HD camera cable kit.
“The WallVIEW Universal PRO system with HSDS makes installation not only easier, but also delivers HD video over standard Cat. 5 cable,” stated President and CEO, Rob Sheeley. “WallVIEW paired with Sony’s BRC-Z700 is an ideal solution for the House of Worship market.”
