Remote Control Pan-Tilt System - Outdoor
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 thesediverse needs, Canon has harnessed multiple unique technologies and experiencein HD optics and digital cameras, robotics, and control software, to produce a costeffective, integrated HD lens-camera PTZ product offering exceptional HD picture quality.

The Canon BU-46H 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 BU-46H has a 1/3 inch 3CCD HD camera with 1,670,000 pixels per CCD. It offers exceptional video quality for broadcasting, event coverage and high quality surveillance, among others.

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 3 CCD HD camera combines a 20X Optical Zoom HD lens (4.5-90mm, 9-180mm with 2X Digital Extender) with Auto Focus and Image Stabilization, providing exceptional HD video images with enhanced operational fl exibilities.

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-46H features GENLOCK for video synchronization.

The BU-46H now includes a newly designed "night mode". The shutter speed is slowed down to a minimum of 1/4(60i,30F) or 1/3(50i,25F,24F) allowing frame accumulation that elevates camera sensitivity.

The BU-46H is an extremely sturdy, dustproof/waterproof pan-tilt system with an IP45enclosure rating. Well suited for outdoor operation, the BU-46H also incorporates a builtin wiper.

The BU-46H can pan through ±340° and tilt 30°~−50° in highly precise and smoothly choreographed movements specifi cally designed to address multiple applications.

The elegant design makes the BU-46H blend in very naturally with buildings and other city landscapes.
