Imperx HD-SDI Cameras

HD-SDI the Broadcast Standard

IMPERX HD-SDI models feature CCD sensors from TRUESENSE Imaging and Sony providing high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. These 720p@60fps and 1080p@30fps cameras meet the demands of broadcast, medical, military and surveillance imaging requirements. The cameras are SMPTE 292M compliant. With a small form factor, these cameras are perfect for space constrained applications (SWaPc). All IMPERX HD-SDI cameras meet or exceed MIL Spec 810F requirements.

Our HD-SDI Cameras are used throughout the world, including North America, Asia (China, Korea, Japan) Europe and India. Our HD-SDI Cameras are globally recognized for their rugged quality, high-resolution, high-speed and numerous programmable features. With 14 different output modes and numerous triggering choices, IMPERX HD-SDI Cameras are the leading global choice for the most demanding commercial applications.

Imperx Bobcat 2.0

Bobcat 2.0 is the latest line of extremely programmable, high quality, low noise, CCD cameras with a high density FPGA for hundreds of programmable features. The latest generation of cameras from IMPERX include 8, 10, 12 or 14-bit output, four inputs and two outputs, dual clock design for a faster frame rate and GigE Vision, PoE, HD-SDI, Camera Link®, Power over Camera Link® (PoCL) or CoaXPress for the most demanding applications.

The configuration capabilities are endless utilizing our easy camera configuration tool. This configuration tool allows easy programmability of each input and output. There are many ways to control the triggering including programmable pulses or intervals, frames to capture after a trigger, delays, debounce, rising edge or falling edge. Bobcat 2.0 also includes many different triggering modes such as asynchronous, standard, fast, frame accumulation and double trigger (for PIV). There are 14 different output modes to control other cameras, geo-rectify images, synchronize cameras, let the computer know if the camera is integrating or ready and more.

Bobcat 2.0 has more new intelligent features including 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x and 8x independent vertical and horizontal binning with up to 7 programmable regions of interest. Programmable exposure control allows the user to program the exact exposure time to 1 microsecond precision. The average intensity of the image can be controlled with auto exposure, auto gain and auto iris with a programmable area of significance of which part of the image is most important to normalize to.

The camera has internal image processing. The features set includes hot pixel correction, defective pixel correction, two look up tables (dynamic transfer function correction) with pre-built programmable corrections for gamma and knee-point corrections.


HD-SDI is a broadcast standard which is a dedicated real-time connection utilizing inexpensive RG6 Coax cabling with thousands of off the shelf components due to its SMPTE compliance. IMPERX manufactures 720p and 1080p cameras. Our unique cameras provide high quality video with MIL Spec 810F strength.

Incredibly Easy to Use

IMPERX HD-SDI cameras automatically control exposure, gain, iris and white balance with hue correction. The cameras automatic modes and built-in image processing algorithms allow for high quality, high definition imaging in any light conditions.

Auto Gain/ Auto Exposure/ Auto Iris to Fully Integrated Lens Control

IMPERX cameras offer auto gain and auto exposure control perfect for any environment. Users can select the entire frame or a portion of the frame to normalize. The auto exposure can be operated from standard to high motion environments. Exposure time and gain can be acquired and turned into metadata. Auto iris lenses can be selected when the application deems appropriate. The user can select full three motor zoom, focus and iris lenses which are completely controllable through the GUI or SDK.


IMPERX HD-SDI cameras conform to MIL SPEC 810F requirements. They are the only COTS cameras on the market that features an extended operating temperature range of -40˚C to +85˚C. The shock/vibration performance exceeds 1000G/100G. IMPERX Bobcat cameras are designed and manufactured to achieve an MTBF > 660,000 hours @ 40˚C. The IMPERX HD-SDI cameras are currently utilized in both manned and autonomous ground, underwater, aerial and rocket launch vehicles.
