Panasonic AK-HC1800N Native 1080i Multi-Purpose 3-CCD Camera

The AK-HC1800N delivers the highest-quality HD video possible in a compact, multi-purpose camera. Designed for high-end HD video applications including pan-tilt or point-of-view uses, this 2/3" 2.2-megapixel 3-CCD multipurpose camera produces native 1080i high definition images with extraordinary low light sensitivity (F10 at 2000 lx) and clarity (60dB signal-to-noise ratio; -130dB smear level). In addition to superb resolution and color reproduction, the camera offers users a host of high-end image controls and functions, including Dynamic Range Stretch and a 12-axis color matrix adjustment for fine adjustment in hue and saturation.

The HC1800N is a versatile HD solution for applications ranging from broadcast (news and reality) to weather or traffic reporting (tower-cam), from image magnification (sports, concerts, house of worship) to the unique angles of sports coverage. For flexible integration, the remote-controllable HC1800N is compatible with Panasonic's comprehensive line of high-performance indoor/outdoor pan-tilt systems.
