RovoCam is AJA’s first compact block camera for industrial, corporate, security, ProAV and broadcast applications. Gorgeous UltraHD and HD imagery is obtained with superior Sony optics with built-in 12x optical zoom and 20x digital zoom (with Sony’s Super Resolution Zoom), auto and manual focus. Housed in a rugged machined aluminum case with multiple mounting options, RovoCam delivers the flexibility, power and feature set to accommodate a variety of applications.
A single Cat5e/6 cable carries all uncompressed video, two-channel audio, VISCA camera control, and power for the simplest installation ever due to RovoCam’s integrated HDBaseT interface. Delivering this much functionality and power with single cable connectivity dramatically simplifies the installation, camera setup and footprint requirements.
RovoRx-HDMI, the companion receiver unit, offers the simplest reception option for RovoCam with an HDMI output to drive displays, and all video/audio signals, power, and control offered over HDBaseT. RovoRx-HDMI is an UltraHD/HD HDBaseT Receiver with integrated HDMI video and audio outputs specifically designed to receive RovoCam’s output. This allows one to receive the RovoCam’s output up to 100m (328’) away from the camera itself and display the gorgeous output on a display wherever needed. The HDBaseT connector on RovoRx-HDMI further allows for camera interaction, power, and control, all over a single Cat5e/6 cable, greatly simplifying workflows and systems integration. NOTE: The HDBaseT format uses RJ45 connectors but does not support Ethernet. HDBaseT is pointto-point signal transport.
