Zed X One 4K FOV

Hi. I am considering the different Zed X One SKUs for a project.

I am a bit confused by the documentation for the field of view (FOV) for the 4K Sony Starvis sensor.

The Zed X One datasheet states this sensor supports:

  • 3840 x 2160 @ 15fps (native sensor resolution)
  • 1920 x 1080 @ 60 fps via pixel binning.
  • 1920 x 1200 @ 60 fps via cropping.

I would expect the pixel binning to preserve the FOV of the camera, but I would expect the cropping approach to decrease the FOV (on the horizontal axis?).

However, on this page, it states that the FOV is identical for both HD1200 and HD1080 resolutions.

Please can someone clarify whether the cropping approach used for HD1200 on the 4K sensor does in fact decrease the FOV on at least one axis?

Hi @bigger
The 1080p of the ZedOne4K is a binning mode, therefore, it preserves the field of view, on the sensor it represents 1920pixels x 2µm x 2 (binning mode) = 7,68mm on the sensor
The FHD1200 of the ZedOne4k is a cropping mode, therefore, the field of view is cropped, it represents 1920 x 2µm =3,84mm on the sensor.

We will update the support page with the correct information

Thanks for clarifying and updating the page.
