Ideal for houses of worship, the PTZ Series reportedly offers clear and detailed monitoring on screen with 2.07 million effective pixels, as well as 1920 x 1080 resolution. For large worship spaces and low-light shooting, the PTZ Series also offers adaptive noise reduction and up to seven cameras can be daisy-chained together to eliminate the need for multiple-control cables.

High image quality processing allows the PTZ Series to feature a high signal-to-noise ratio and high resolution using noise reduction technology, while producing faithful color reproduction using a non-linear matrix circuit, and reducing false color signal phenomena. In addition, the company reports, a full HD, two-million-pixel CMOS imaging sensor offers bright colors and high sensitivity.

The PTZ Series also offers 32 preset memories for pan/tilt/zoom and other settings using the remote control unit, and up to 127 presets using external control via RS-232C or RS-422. Various digital video interfaces are available, including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and DVI-I, says Paul Watkins, senior national sales manager with Hitachi America Ltd.
