Lumens Introduces the VC-A70H 4K Ultra HD PTZ Broadcast Camera

Lumens Integration has introduced a new 4K Ultra HD PTZ camera — the VC-A70H — designed for broadcasting and large meeting room environments.

Lumens said the new camera is equipped with a progressive Exmor R CMOS sensor. The VC-A70H comes with a 12x optical zoom, 74 degrees of Horizontal Field of View (HFoV), HDMI and HDBaseT simultaneous video output interface and a built-in tally light.

The HDBaseT interface allows Ultra HD resolution and long distance transmission up to 230 feet which carries power, video and control through one CAT5e/6 cable. The camera also supports RS232 and RS422.

The VC-A70H camera’s advanced image processing and circuit design ensures a pristine image during the pan, tilt, zoom and capture function. This is essential for visual communications which is lacking in other broadcasting and large meeting room cameras.

Several accessories are included with this camera. It comes with a standard ceiling mount bracket, IR remote control and power adapter. In addition, Lumens provides optional accessories including a cable extender, wall mount bracket and a compact camera controller.

The VC-A70H 4K Ultra HD PTZ camera will be available in July, 2016. Customers will have the option to purchase the camera in either a white or black finish. The MSRP price is $5,040.
