AJA RovoCam Integrated 4K/HD Camera with HDBaseT
Designed for industrial, corporate, security, broadcast, and professional AV applications, the AJA RovoCam is a compact block camera that utilizes an HDBaseT interface to carry uncompressed UltraHD/HD video, audio, control, and power over a single Cat 5e/6 cable across distances up to 328'. By delivering all of this over a single cable, RovoCam aims to simplify camera installation, setup, and footprint requirements.
Performance-wise, RovoCam is built around a Sony camera module that features a 1/2.3" 8.93MP backside-illuminated sensor and Sony image processor that combine to support UHD video at 25/29.97 fps and 1080p at 50/59.94 fps. It also features Sony optics with a 12x optical zoom range and up to 20x intelligent (Sony Super Resolution) zoom, which can be controlled remotely via Sony's VISCA protocol.
A single Cat 5e/6 cable is used to carry uncompressed video, 2-channel audio, RS-232 for VISCA camera control, and power. The separately available RovoRx-HDMI companion unit is the simplest receiving option for RovoCam, offering all necessary connections. For situations where you're not supplied power or RS-232 over HD-BaseT, the camera features does feature dedicated power and 3.5mm RS-232 connections, as well as a 3.5mm audio input for an plugging in an external microphone. A cold shoe mount on top of the camera streamlines external microphone mounting.
Housed in a rugged, machined-aluminum case, RovoCam is small in size and light in weight, making it easy to mount in wide range of scenarios, be it on a tripod using the included tripod mount, on stage in a conference room, or with a separately available security camera mount. For outdoor security use, it is compatible with Sony's SNC-UNIHB/1 Outdoor Housing.
