RovoCam is AJAs first compact block camera for industrial, corporate, security, ProAV and broadcast applications. RovoCams HDBaseT interface supports control of 4K/UltraHD video, power, audio and RS-232 over a single Cat 5e/6 cable.

RovoRx-HDMI, the companion receiver, offers the simplest integration with RovoCam offering an HDMI output, stereo audio out, control and power.

Superior Optics, Simply Delivered
RovoCams marriage of lens to delivery begins with superior Sony optics, complete with built-in 12 x optical zoom and up to 20 x zoom with Sony Super Resolution Zoom and autofocus or manual focus capabilities; all easily controlled remotely via Sony's VISCA protocol.

RovoCam is built around Sonys 4K (Sony FCB-ER8300) camera module featuring the back illuminated CMOS sensor and Sony image processing for excellent performance.

What sets RovoCam apart from other cameras in its category, is an integrated HDBaseT interface supporting uncompressed video, power, stereo audio and RS-232 control over a single Cat 5e/6 cable running at lengths of up to 100 meters.

Delivering this much functionality and power with single cable connectivity dramatically simplifies installation, camera setup and footprint requirements.

Distance, Power and Control. All Over a Single Cable.
HDBaseT sits at the heart of RovoCam.

RovoCam itself features an integrated HDBaseT transmitter. Not only does HDBaseT offer affordable long cable runs up to 100 meters over standard Cat5e/6 cables, it also passes RovoCams gorgeous UltraHD/HD imagery, audio, control of the camera, and power to the unit.

A single Cat 5e/6 cable carries all uncompressed video, 2-Channel audio, VISCA camera control, and power for the simplest installation ever due to RovoCams integrated HDBaseT interface.


1 x HDBaseT connector (RJ-45) allowing camera interaction and control, uncompressed video, audio and power all over one Cat 5e/6 cable.
1 x 3.5mm Mic audio input
1 x 3.5mm RS-232 input
1 x local power connector

Simple to Install. Simple to Operate.

Robust, Reliable, Desirable
Reliable, practical and compactly encased in rugged and durable aluminum, RovoCams small and light form factor allows simple mounting in a wide range of scenarios. From tripod, stage, conference room to security camera mounts, RovoCam can go wherever you need it and ships with a simple mount included to get you going.

RovoCam is compatible with Sonys popular SNCUNIHB/1 outdoor housing, ensuring reliable performance in all outdoor environments.

Powerful Optics meets Easy Transport.
RovoCam when paired with RovoRx-HDMI utilizes the power of HDBaseT, combining video signal, camera control, audio and power all passing over one standard Cat 5e/6a cable.

RovoRx-HDMI HDBaseT receiver provides an HDMI 1.4b video output for monitoring, audio output, and RS-232/VISCA for complete camera control. VISCA control can be passed through to a joystick controller or alternatively to a computer with a com port for software control.
