Iron 3GSDI 462

1080p at 60fps Rolling Shutter sensor. Small Form Factor SDI Ruggedized Camera


Innovative Approach – The Iron 3GSDI 462 is an ultra-thin, low-cost, low-power rolling shutter CMOS camera with an SDI interface that supports high-quality video at rates up to 60 fps. With an optional analog video output, this camera is highly versatile, allowing it to fit various tasks and conditions.

Intelligent Design – Our camera incorporates high sensitivity Sony rolling shutter sensor with a 2.9µm pixel size. With an extremely compact outline the Iron can be fitted into tight spaces. Superior sensor performance allows very low light vision capabilities.
