A7-180 vision system

Megapixel coverage in an analog camera. Virtual PTZ.


Why see less. When you can see more.™

Blackhawk Imaging’s A7-180 video camera uses a 7 Megapixel staring array to produce 180×48 field-of-view, non-fisheye, panoramic video. Its staring array has the resolution (i.e., pixels on target) of 23 standard VGA cameras.

The A7-180s internal imaging engine presents the user a virtual PTZ; 180 view plus up to three 8X zoom detail views packaged into one NTSC frame that is sent over any standard CCTV analog network.
