HD29 – Micro-Box Camera
1080p60 Miniature Cockpit Camera
Small Camera, Big Performance
The HD29 features the highest quality components available with a Sony Exmor sensor, latest generation NextChip DSP, and broadcast quality Gennum SDI transmitter. Video is output via the SMPTE 424M 3G-SDI or 292M HD-SDI standards.
Housed in a machined aluminum enclosure the internal solid-state PCBs are mounted directly to the CS mount creating a ridged plane from the lens to the image sensor. Locking power and BNC connections allow the HD29 to be mounted in high-vibration environments.
A powerful DSP allows users to adjust settings such as; resolution and frame rate, shutter speed, white balance, back-light compensation, wide dynamic range, gain level, noise reduction, and flip, mirror, or rotate the image. A wide range of standard CS mount lenses allows users to choose nearly any field of view.
The HD29 has logged thousands of flight hours as a cockpit camera, helicopter camera, or aerial patrol camera and is currently in use in a number of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft including:
- Eurocopter EC130
- Eurocopter AS350
- Bell 206
- Bell 407
- AgustaWestland AW109
- AgustaWestland AW101
- Robinson R44
- Robinson R66
- Gulfstream GIII
Configuration - Lenses & Cabling
The HD29 also has the option of cable type for camera power; Integrated HRS which features a Hirose LF series locking power connector for high vibration applications, and Thumb-Screw Multi-Pin which features a Molex multi-pin cable secured with thumb lock screws for less demanding applications. Both versions feature a 3GHz BNC for video transmission.
The HD29 Micro HD Box Camera has the option of lenses from 135 degree wide angle to 20 degree zoom. Lenses are a fixed focal length CS mount type with an adjustable focus. Stock focal lengths include: 2.8mm, 3.6mm, 4.0mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm, 12mm, and 16mm. Additional focal lengths and vari-focal lenses are available as special order options.
The HD29 features a standard 1/4″-20 mounted boss on the bottom of the camera for use with standard camera mounts. The camera does have the ability to mirror or rotate the image using the on-screen menu allowing the camera to be “top mounted”.
A number of mounting options are available for the HD29, each using the standard 1/4″-20 stud.
