Bordeaux-based Otonomy Aviation (Booth 1826) is displaying its CamHD 1080 line of high-definition digital airborne cameras at EBACE. The company’s HD cameras, which can be tail or belly mounted, recently completed DO160 lightning-strike certification, including direct strikes.

Otonomy’s cameras, which are compatible with all in-flight entertainment systems and cockpit displays, can provide up to eight simultaneous video outputs, such as 1080i HD, Ethernet H264 streaming in 720P and NTSC. All of Otonomy’s CamHD units can be powered directly from an aircraft’s 28 VDC electrical system and each camera can be used as a standalone unit or incorporated into an array of on-ship cameras.

The company’s CamHD 1080 line encompasses four main products: VCCU-E, a video convertor unit; CamHD-1, a tail or belly-mount color high-definition camera unit; CamHD-4, a quad pod of four integrated color cameras that provides a 360-degree view with angle overlap; and CamD-Z, an up to 120x zoom camera with picture-freeze capability.
