Ross Video Expands PTZ Camera Portfolio

As an extension of its PivotCam family of robotically controlled PTZ cameras, Ross Video has announced the PivotCam-SE, a new lower cost camera for production studios, corporate boardrooms, large auditoriums and other venues.

Featuring a new 12.4 megapixel, ½-inch CMOS sensor, the Ross Video PivotCam-SE offers high-quality 1080P HD video capture. It also includes an Ethernet port for single cable connectivity (providing remote control via the IP Visca protocol), video output using 4KUHD IP streaming, and Power over Ethernet—all over a standard CAT5E cable. The PivotCam-SE also offers a 3G-SDI output, and an external synchronization (Genlock) input, simplifying system integration.

The optical stability of the PivotCam-SE has been enhanced with the addition of a second arm, ensuring a clean and stable image, even on the tightest shots provided by the 23X optical and 2X lossless digital zoom.

Bruce Takasaki, Marketing Product Manager, Robotics and Cameras, said the new PivotCam-SE adheres to the company’s internal “Smart Evolution (SE)” initiative, making it easy to deploy, integrate and operate.
