Remote Control Pan-Tilt System
As the worldwide transition to HD (high definition) imaging continues to accelerate, many video content creators including broadcasters, cable networks and business/industrial entities are seeking cost-effective, turnkey, remotely-controllable Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) HD camera systems to extend creative flexibilities. To meet these diverse needs, Canon has harnessed multiple unique technologies and experience in HD optics and digital cameras, robotics, and control software, to produce a cost-effective, integrated HD lens-camera PTZ product offering exceptional HD picture quality.

The Canon BU-47H is a rugged yet elegant outdoor PTZ system-following a legacy of decades of Canon expertise in designing such systems. A sister product, the BU-51H, has a design tailored for exacting indoor applications.
The 3 CMOS HD camera combines a 18X Optical Zoom HD lens (4.1-73.8mm, 6.2-111mm with 1.5X Digital Extender) with Auto Focus and Image Stabilization, providing exceptional HD video images with enhanced operational flexibilities.

The BU-47H is an extremely sturdy, dustproof/waterproof pan-tilt system with an IP45 enclosure rating. Well suited for outdoor operation, the BU-47H also incorporates a built-in wiper.

The BU-47H can pan through ±340° and tilt 30° ~ −50° in highly precise and smoothly choreographed movements specifically designed to address multiple applications.

As the control protocol is non-proprietary and open to the public, a user or system integrator can provide their own control system or contract with a third party provider.

The camera outputs an uncompressed HD-SDI (or SD-SDI) signal. The HD-SDI signal and an SD Composite signal (NTSC or PAL)* can be output simultaneously. The SD signal can be used for monitoring. In addition, the BU-47H features GENLOCK for video synchronization.

The elegant design makes the BU-47H blend in very naturally with buildings and other city landscapes.

* Please request NTSC or PAL format at time of purchase
