Harrier family with 40x autofocus zoom

Active Silicon’s Harrier family continues to grow as more compact and cost-effective autofocus-zoom modules are added. The latest addition brings 40x optical zoom to a camera measuring just 101 x 54 x 64 mm (L x W x H).

Camera capability

The Harrier 40x AF-Zoom Camera is fitted with a 2MP Sony CMOS sensor and offers real-time full HD 1080p – 60/30 fps or 720p – 60/30 fps video output. It’s compatible with all of Active Silicon’s Harrier camera interface boards, which can convert the camera’s LVDS output to video formats including 3GSDI, HD-VLC, USB3 (UVC), HDMI and, coming soon, H.264 IP Ethernet and MIPI CSI-2.

Special features of this autofocus-zoom block camera include Digital Image Stabilization, Digital Noise Reduction (DNR 2D+3D), Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Privacy Mask Function, High Light Compensation (HLC), Intelligent Motion Detection, Defog Function and Day & Night mode (ICR). Serial VISCA or PelcoD/P Control Protocol are available to control the camera.

Suitable applications

The Harrier 40x AF-Zoom camera is compact and light yet powerful enough to be ideal for a range of applications including surveillance, defense, transport, industrial inspection and remote monitoring. The HD-VLC® model supports high-speed video transmission up to 3Gbps over very long cable lengths and slip rings, further increasing its flexibility.

Due to their high speed and ease of control, the cameras are particularly well-suited for use in applications where real-time data acquisition is essential, for example, mounted on UAVs and ROVs. Units can be supplied pre-assembled with the required Harrier interface board closely integrated, enabling output in several formats so vision systems can be upgraded with minimum effort and
