Superb Picture Quality

The EVI-HD3V is equipped with a DVI-D interface that is designed to maximise the high video quality of today's digital displays. This digital interface is capable of displaying both digital and analogue signals in Y/Pb/Pr and RGB formats.

Multi-Format Video Outputs including Full HD

The EVI-HD3V adopts the world-renowned direct drive motor mechanism previously seen in the EVI-HD1. As a result the camera is extremely quiet and moves smoothly and very quickly to desired positions, covering a wide shooting range.

High Quality Image Transmission

Maximum pan speed = 300 degrees per second (range +/- 100 degrees)

Wide-range, Quiet and Quick Pan/Tilt Mechanism

Maximum tilt speed = 125 degrees per second (range +/- 125 degrees)

10x Optical (40x with Digital Zoom)

The EVI-HD3V has a maximum zoom ratio of 40x. The high performance lens supports a fast and stable autofocus capability enabling sharp and intricately featured objects to be captured quickly and clearly.

Wide Angle of View (70 degrees)

The EVI-HD3V incorporates a wide-angle lens for wide field of view image capture, an advantage for small to medium conference rooms.

RS-232C Remote control (VISCA protocol)

All Camera settings and pan/tilt/zoom control functions can be performed remotely at high communication speeds via the RS-232C interface VISCA protocol.

Six-Position Presets

Up to 6 preset values for pan/tilt/zoom, focus position, exposure mode and white balance mode can be stored in the camera. The camera can retain these presets even when switched off.

Customisable Settings via On-screen Menu using IR Remote Commander Unit
