Camera Control Unit (CCU)

  • Tajimi connector model

    AK-UCU500PJ
    AK-UCU500EJ

  • LEMO connector model

    AK-UCU500PSJ
    AK-UCU500PESJ

The CCU Supports both 4K and HD Formats by just Changing the Camera Head.
It Enables a High-quality, Long-distance Optical Fiber Transmission Camera System to be Configured at a Reduced Cost.

  • Optical fiber transmission of uncompressed video signals over a distance of approx. 2,000 m between camera and CCU*.
  • The compact, lightweight unit measures 2U in height and is rack-mountable.
  • Supports IP streaming (100 Base-T).
  • An SD memory card can be used for saving user files and updating firmware versions.
  • * When power is supplied from CCU.
