Z3 Technology, LLC, a leading provider of video encoding systems, today announced the availability of Z3Cam-HD, an HD H.265/HEVC video camera solution designed to provide the highest quality image at the lowest bandwidth, latency and power. This new IP video camera combines Sony’s proven CMOS image sensor and auto focus zoom technology with video compression expertise from Z3 Technology to provide a real-time H.265 HD video streaming solution.
“We are excited to make the Z3Cam-HD available to our customers. It is truly an all-in-one solution that allows them to efficiently incorporate Sony’s low-light FCB-EV7520 block camera with live HD H.265 or H.264 video streaming in their infrastructure. There isn’t another camera combining these technologies like the Z3Cam-HD on the market,” Aaron Caldwell, CEO, Z3 Technology said.
The Z3Cam-HD is ideally suited for both low light and back light applications, presenting smooth transitions from wide area coverage to detailed close-ups. It is equipped with essential features including full HD 30x optical zoom, integrated auto-focus, exceptional low light performance (0.01 lux in color at 30 frames per second), spherical privacy zone masking and 120dB wide dynamic range.
“Z3 has elegantly integrated their industry leading multi-stream encoder with Sony’s best high-definition auto-focus zoom block, the FCB-EV7520. Capable of capturing clear 1080p60 color video in near total darkness, as well as in extremely high-contrast, wide dynamic range scenes, the Z3Cam-HD is a powerful tool for a wide range of security, surveillance and industrial vision applications, commented John Monti, Director, Visual Imaging Solutions, Sony Electronics, Inc.
The Z3Cam-HD allows for H.265 or H.264 encoded video in resolutions up to 1080p60. Streaming is able to be sent anywhere over the globe and controlled over any distance through Z3’s intuitive HTTP-based control interface, Sony VISCA commands or ONVIF® Profile S. Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides additional flexibility in set up.
The Z3Cam-HD can be purchased as an all-in-one system or customized to any application as an OEM development kit, the HE2K-DCK-10. Both the Z3Cam-HD and HE2K-DCK-10 are available for purchase.
