Announcing the new 8KSDI camera, adding to its lineup of compact, POV video cameras featuring superb image quality at affordable prices. As its name implies, the camera combines 8K (and UHDTV2) capture with live SDI output. It’s designed for use in professional live broadcast and video production environments. Other applications include virtual reality content creation, visual effects, remote monitoring and wide-area surveillance.

The 8KSDI is a compact, single-piece miniature video camera designed for low latency connection over 12G/6G-SDI to other infrastructure such as video recorders, monitors, or distribution equipment.
Cameras are available today with two choices for the factory-installed lens mount, either F-mount or Active EF-Mount. The F-mount is a passive, mechanical-only mount requiring manually-adjustable F-mount lenses. The Active EF-mount electronically controls any attached EF-mount lenses, providing remote control over iris and focus.
