Teledyne updates underwater cameras

Teledyne Bowtech has updated their L3C-HD and L3C_HDX underwater cameras.

The updated L3C-HD camera now features full HD 1080p up to 60fps adding to the HD-SDI outputs available (720p 50, 720p 60, 1080i 50, 1080i 60 and 1080p 50). The camera also features simultaneous SD and HD-SDI output capability and is fitted with a fixed focus wide angle lens that provides a 67° diagonal angle of view in water. The Titanium housing is depth rather for1000m, 4000m or 6000m and is capped by a scratch resistant and 99.8% optically pure Sapphire window. Additionally, the L3C-HD camera is approximately 40% smaller and lighter than its predecessor.

The key feature of the L3C-HDX camera is that the digital signal from the cameras is a visually lossless compressed signal that will travel up to 250m on a Teledyne Bowtech coax. This visually lossless compression adds zero latency to the signal and the video is viewed on an HD-SDI capable monitor after going through a small converter box. The L3C-HDX is built with the same Titanium housing and Sapphire window as the L3C-HD.

Both the L3C-HD and the L3C-HDX cameras are lightweight and compact, and are suited to tooling, diving and ROV/AUV applications.
