The Rapier 45 overview camera uses a standard definition 12x zoom camera with the option to operate the camera in progressive scan mode. Progressive scan mode allows images to be captured as a full sensor image that is output as two fields of interlaced video.
When viewed, this format will contain double the vertical image elements without any time delay between adjacent interlaced lines. In this way, moving objects can be displayed in higher definition than standard interlaced video modules.
By utilizing the interlaced video output, the camera offers the capability for images to be captured in full D1 quality by frame grabbers and video encoders alike. The camera’s housing is fully sealed to IP68 and purged for long life performance.
