TV-HDCS DSP (digital signal processing) CCD enclosed board camera with new high resolution / high density Sony® 1/3" imager. No lens included but optional CS-mount type lenses available (4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 12mm, 16mm fixed & 2.8-12mm and 5-50mm varifocal versions with manual iris or DC auto iris). This unit is 'plug & play' compatible with ALL of our recorders (DVR and VCR) and wireless equipment. It's also compatible with all consumer VCRs as well as most television sets (those with standard composite RCA or BNC inputs).


What an amazingly crisp high resolution camera! Barely larger than the lens mount itself, this is packed with optional features. The TV-HDCS. A super choice for all kinds of stationary video applications. With the newly revised 1/3" Sony SuperHAD DSP (digital signal processing) CCD imager chipset- this features unparalleled picture quality and features to any other similar size camera.

This camera has special remote control image quality features (digital zoom, digital day / night mode, negative color, brightness control, pan / tilt within zoom image, etc). Some features are controlled using tiny dip switches on the back of the camera. More features can be controlled using an optional handheld remote controller (RMT-3X or RMT-3XL) - or from a PC computer using RS-485 communications interface with the included software application.

We carry ONLY the LATEST and BEST in CCTV chipset technology and circuit board engineering (both aspects are critical to produce a high quality CCD camera)! Too many in our industry are still liquidating 'antiques' on an unsuspecting public, often even unaware themselves that better technology exists.

Common Applications:

• Low profile high resolution indoor & outdoor* (*w/ weatherproof housing) security solutions
• Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and R/C remote control vehicle applications
• Onboard vehicle use
• OEM & scientific / machine purposes

Available Options:

*We can custom-install any of our CS-mount lenses into this camera so that it's ready to plug in and go right out of the box on arrival. Lens installations and lens changes for these cameras are not terribly difficult to do yourself, but it can cause some headaches as there are a couple of steps which must be done properly. It does require a back focal flange adjustment (to physically 'sync' the camera imager with the optical lens for optimum picture sharpness) and use of some EXTREMELY TINY screws. Our qualified technicians will gladly perform this service for you for $9.95- simply ask operator for part # LENS-SVC when ordering the camera(s) and lens(es).

Variations / Alternate Equipment to Consider:

We also carry the #TV-HD48. Same case size and onboard features, but has a 4 to 8mm adjustable focus zoom lens built in.

Also consider covert pinhole version #TV-HDP1.


This is a non-weatherproof camera, and as such- must be treated with extra care and NEVER left outdoors without the proper protective housings.
