Full HD Live Image Allrounder

The TAURI2-02150 SDI from Kappa optronics is one of the smallest and most robust HD-SDI cameras on the market. It comes with a 2/3” interline transfer CCD with progressive scan. The Tauri 2 camera can be switched to whatever format is needed, 1080i/25, 1080i/30, 1080p/25 or 1080p/30. The high-resolution, uncompressed 1.5 Gbit real-time data is delivered to the control monitor via the HD-SDI output. The single-cable connection to the monitor, which can cover distances of up to 100 m, is qualified for drag chain use.


Available Configurations Include:


The Tauri2 Rugged model expands the possibilities for use in extreme environments resisting wide temp erature fluctuations and vibration or shock stresses. A lockable C-mount secures the lens into position and prevents it from loosening under vibration
