Both cameras are designed with the latest in sensor technology and are refined to meet broadcast and AV standards.
The CV420-18X features a compact 18X optical (3X digital) zoom block and flexible 12GSDI/HDMI simultaneous outputs with crystal clear 4K images up to 4096x2160p at 60fps, while the CV355-10X features 10X optical (12X digital) zoom block and flexible 3GSDI/HDMI simultaneous outputs with clear HD images up to 1920×1080 at 60fps.
