Hitachi KP-D20A Color CCD Camera


[Product may be available in limited quantities. Contact us for price/availability.]


The Hitachi KP-D20A Color CCD Camera is a compact color camera featuring 3rd generation digital signal processing (DSP). The KP-D20A has a 1/3-in CCD with a minimum sensitivity of 1.5 Lux. An On-Screen-Menu system allows for easy selection and adjustment of all camera parameters, such as video level, black level, chroma level, and enhancement, white balance, and shutter control.

All KP-D20A parameters may also be controlled via an RS-232 interface. Windows software is available as well as the RS-232 protocol to allow custom software development for the KP-D20A.

The KP-D20A has a CS style lens mount--an optional C/CS adapter is available to accept a C-Mount lens.
