The Harrier 3G-SDI Camera Interface Board

•          Supports all the HD-SDI and 3G-SDI modes of the camera up to 3 Gbps.

•          Simultaneous high quality analog video (800 TVL) and digital video (720p50/60).

•          Full screen image on 16:9 and 4:3 monitors.

•          HD-VLC™ allows extensive cable lengths.

•          Multiple slip rings can be used.Applications and innovations

The Harrier solution enhances the transmission of digital video for inspecting pipes, industrial ducts, nuclear facilities and other industrial environments, allowing cable lengths not reached before, and even accommodates the addition of several slip rings in series. Tests with compatible hardware have proven HD-VLC™ (HD) video transfer over cables in excess of 150m using twisted pair cables, 700m using coax cables and many km with optical cables.

Similarly, applications using robotics, drones, ROVs, low vision aides, endoscopes and microscopes will also benefit from this compact and cost-effective board.
