The Multi-Faceted Mini-cam The 2KSDI is built to be completely flexible, yet small enough to fit into a range of specialty applications for both broadcast and cinema. The camera is built on IO Industries’ years of experience with industrial cameras, yet packs in the flexible color processing and optics support required by video professionals.
• Compact one-piece rugged color camera
• SYNC IN for 3D and genlock capability
• YCbCr, and RAW color modes
• Low noise and high light sensitivity
• Auto-exposure and auto white balance
• Adjustable color matrix, saturation, and gamma
Small Size, Huge Potential Weighing in at 310g, the 2KSDI is no larger than an average apple. With its’ solid aluminum housing and flexible lensing options, the 2KSDI quickly becomes known as “the tough little camera that could” on most shoots. Though some professional mini-cams require a separate camera control unit, all of the 2KSDI’s functions can be set directly on the camera head.
So Many Modes! The 2KSDI can travel where other cameras can’t, yet it can also speak the language when it gets there. The camera can be configured in full 2K RAW for digitial cinema one day, then 422 interlaced for live broadcast the next. All of this is configured from an easy to use on-screen display with the small handheld remote, or by attaching an RS485 cable for long distance control.
Fills the Gap in Your RAW Workflow With so many productions shooting RAW video, it is great to have the ability to keep the same workflow for every camera on the shoot. Keep your same RAW workflow, but with use of a small camera!
• Broadcast and cinema
• Recording on vehicles and aircraft
The 2KSDI cameras support file-based workflows from many different broadcast and cinema recorders.
This diagram illustrates a typical setup. The DVR is fed the 2KSDI’s clean output, where the 2KSDI’s output which includes the on-screen display is fed to a monitor.
The table below shows an example of some field recorders which work well with the 2KSDI. Feel free to contact us for recommendations as to which field recorder best fits your application.

Workflow avec mode RAW
Using the RAW feature of the 2KSDI camera allows for more flexibility and leads to to higher image quality in your post workflow. Using a high-powered CPU to process the RAW video makes is possible for the use of higher performing debayer, sharpening, gamma, and color processing lters.
This feature saves storage space, as the DVR only needs to store the monochrome frames and not the full color images. Savings to power consumption may also be attributed, as high-powered image processing is not needed on-camera, on-DVR, or even on-site. Please see the 2KSDI manual about how to set the camera into RAW mode. Also be sure to check with your DVR manufacturer to be sure that they have support for this feature.
