Integrated 4K/HD Camera with HDBaseT
RovoCam is AJA’s first compact block camera for industrial, corporate, security, ProAV and broadcast applications. RovoCam’s HDBaseT interface supports control of 4K/UltraHD video, power, audio and RS-232 over a single Cat 5e/6 cable.
Here's an interesting case study of the camera being used in an operating theatre together with a Polecam rig, enabling a view of surgival procedures without compromising the medical team.
RovoRx-HDMI, the companion receiver, offers the simplest integration with RovoCam offering an HDMI output, stereo audio out, control and power.
Superior Optics, Simply Delivered
RovoCam’s marriage of lens to delivery begins with superior Sony optics, complete with built-in 12 x optical zoom and up to 20 x zoom with Sony Super Resolution Zoom and autofocus or manual focus capabilities; all easily controlled remotely via Sony's VISCA protocol.
RovoCam is built around Sony’s 4K (Sony FCB-ER8300) camera module featuring the back illuminated CMOS sensor and Sony image processing for excellent performance.
What sets RovoCam apart from other cameras in its category, is an integrated HDBaseT interface supporting uncompressed video, power, stereo audio and RS-232 control over a single Cat 5e/6 cable running at lengths of up to 100 meters.
Delivering this much functionality and power with single cable connectivity dramatically simplifies installation, camera setup and footprint requirements.
Distance, Power and Control. All Over a Single Cable.
HDBaseT sits at the heart of RovoCam.
RovoCam itself features an integrated HDBaseT transmitter. Not only does HDBaseT offer affordable long cable runs up to 100 meters over standard Cat5e/6 cables, it also passes RovoCam’s gorgeous UltraHD/HD imagery, audio, control of the camera, and power to the unit.
A single Cat 5e/6 cable carries all uncompressed video, 2-Channel audio, VISCA camera control, and power for the simplest installation ever due to RovoCam’s integrated HDBaseT interface.
• 1 x HDBaseT connector (RJ-45) allowing camera interaction and control, uncompressed video, audio and power all over one Cat 5e/6 cable.
• 1 x 3.5mm Mic audio input
• 1 x 3.5mm RS-232 input
