HDX – Flight Tour Bullet Camera
1080p60 HD Bullet Camera
HD Bullet Camera for Flight Tours
The HDX is the only camera on the market that was designed specifically for applications requiring camera switching. The HDX video output helps balance systems with multiple cameras, allowing for seamless video switching. The HDX is can be used in multi-camera configurations with the HD29, HD19, and HD25 cameras.
The HDX features a 2.1 megapixel Panasonic CMOS sensor and powerful DSP with many enhancement options, including; Wide Dynamic Range, 2D and 3D digital noise reduction, and an advanced automatic gain control algorythm, shooting great video out-of-the-box in nearly any lighting situation. Video is output via the SMPTE 424M 3G-SDI or 292M HD-SDI standards.
Rugged & Waterproof
Housed in a machined aluminum enclosure the HDX is IP67 rated for submersion up to 1 meter, making it tough enough to handle any weather condition. The HDX is an ideal low maintenance solution for mounting insider or outside the cockpit.
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 M12(S-mount) lenses allows users to choose nearly any field of view.
The HDX 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 (AStar, Squirrel)
- Bell 206
