The compact KY-F560 is a three-chip 1/2-inch CCD box camera that offers remote functionality that is extendable for studio configurations. It builds upon the capabilities of the JVC KY-F32 camera, producing 850 lines of horizontal resolution and a signal-to-noise ratio of 62dB. The KY-F560 offers excellent sensitivity, F13 at 2,000 lux and produces 100 percent video in a minimum illumination of 0.5 lux, the manufacturer describes. Three 1/2-inch progressive scan CCD chips offer 440,000 effective pixels and 16:9 wide screen capability. Optional plug-in boards allow users to easily expand the functionality of the high-performance KY-F560 camera to include remote pan/tilt/zoom capabilities and SDI output.
JVC's KY-F550U is an extremely compact, very high quality 1/3-inch 3-CCD camera suited for a wide range of remote-controlled imaging and medical applications. Following in the footsteps of JVC's successful KY-F55B, the lightweight F550 offers enhanced performance, connectivity and unique customer-requested features such as simple "smart cable" connections. A single cable connected to the camera's IEEE 1394 interface can provide power and control signals to the camera as well as digital video output to the connected device.
The KY-F550 offers camera performance with 800 lines of horizontal resolution and a 62dB signal-to-noise ratio. The high-performance three CCDs offer very high sensitivity of F11 at 2000 lux and a 1-lux minimum illumination (F1.4). The KY-F550 comes with multiple video outputs, including DV (IEEE1394), RGB, Y/C and composite video signals. The built-in IEEE 1394 interface lets users transfer digital signals from the camera to storage devices. KY-Controller software bundled with the KY-F550 enables PC remote control of the camera
