    Overview HV-D25 is a 3 CCD color camera featuring advanced picture quality and high stability. Each 1/2-inch CCD has 410,000 (470,000 PAL) picture elements (pixels), while the circuits from processor to encoder are organized onto a single semiconductor chip. The precision C mount prism optics provide physical compatibility with a broad selection of general and special purpose lenses.
  • Page 15: Notes To Users

    Stop using the camera at the approach of an electrical storm (thunder audible). Protect the camera from rain if using it outdoors. l In event the camera shows any abnormality, switch off the camera and disconnect the power cord. Contact a Hitachi Denshi service representative.
