We are pleased to announce the introduction of outdoor camera systems incorporating our new AW-HE40 cameras. These new weatherproof (IP66) systems are ideal for sports, weather-cams, and other remote production applications. These new systems offer several advantages over our existing HE60-based systems, including 30X optical zoom, lower cost and 15% higher horizontal resolution. On the other hand, the HE60-based systems are still recommended for deployments that require Genlock, HD analog output, or SD output.
A wide range of models are now available — from systems with an HE40H camera in an enclosure with a heater/blower, to a system with an HE40S camera and fiber optic transceivers and active cooling.
