OUTLINE
The DFW-V500/VL500 is a color digital video camera utilizing a 1/3-type PS IT CCD. The DFW-V500 is the C-mounted type
while the DFW-VL500 is a 12× zoom lens mounted type.
The IEEE1394-1995 digital interface realizes a transfer speed of 400M bps and outputs VGA (640 × 480)/YUV (4 : 2 : 2)/30 fps.
In addition, the DFW-V500/VL500 also adopts a primary color filter CCD to realize good color reproductivity. Furthermore, they
digitally transmit the original image quality without “Analog-to-Digital conversion” on the video capture board. The square
pixels eliminate the need for aspect ratio conversion in the image processor.

FUNCTIONS
The DFW-V500/VL500 differs from conventional analog cameras in that no video signals will be output by just supplying power.
It will start operating when designated commands are written in the CSR (Control & Status Register) specified in the 1394-based
Digital Camera Specification Ver.1.20. For details on the steps to video signal output and details of CSR, refer to “SETTINGS OF
CAMERA CONTROL AND STATUS REGISTER” on page 13 and “COMMAND SENDING PROCEDURE UNTIL IMAGES
ARE DISPLAYED” on page 22.
This chapter describes the functions of the camera which can be set using the CSR.
Camera Functions
Gain
Used for setting the gain of the video signal amplifier. The gain can be set in 18 steps between the standard gain and maximum
+18 dB.
By setting AUTO to ON, the gain will be automatically adjusted to the appropriate exposure. The range of operation is 0 to
+18 dB.
Note) For 18 dB, there may be an inconsistency of approximate +3 dB.
1 step is about 1 dB.
Shutter
The CCD exposure time can be set between the maximum 5 seconds and minimum 1/100,000 seconds. By setting the CCD
Iris to ON, the exposure time will be automatically adjusted to the appropriate exposure. The range of operation is 1/30 to
1/2,000 seconds.
Iris (DFW-VL500 only)
Used for setting the built-in zoom lens iris from fully opened (F1.8 at Wide end) to fully closed. By setting AUTO to ON, the
iris will be automatically adjusted to the appropriate exposure. The range of operation is about F1.8 to F32.
Auto Exposure
Used for setting the exposure compensation when Gain, Shutter, or Iris is operating in the AUTO mode. When Gain, Shutter,
and Iris are all set to Manual, the Auto Exposure setting will not be used. The range of operation is about –1EV to +0.5EV.

Sharpness
Used for adjusting sharpness of the image.
White Balance
Used for adjusting white balance by adjusting R-gain and B-gain. White subjects can be shot in white by setting the white
balance according to the color temperature of the luminance light. The White Balance operation mode can be selected from
three modes – Manual, One Push, and ATW.

DFW-V500
DFW-VL500
FUNCTIONS
Color Temperature
This function was originally intended for selecting the optical filter. However with the DFW-V500/VL500, the R-gain and Bgain are set to the appropriate White Balance when color temperatures 3,200 K and 5,600 K light sources are used.
Hue
Used for adjusting the hue of the image.
Command setting
Hue changing amount
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------00h
Equivalent changing amount when the luminance point of the
NTSC Vector Scope is rotated by about 15 degrees in the
clockwise direction from the factory setting.

FFh
Equivalent changing amount when the luminance point of the
NTSC Vector Scope is rotated by about 15 degrees in the
counterclockwise direction from the factory setting.
These values are approximate values and may differ
according to the adjusted state of the camera.
Saturation
Used for adjusting the saturation of the image.

Zoom (DFW-VL500 only)
Used for adjusting the zoom range of built-in zoom lens.
Focus (DFW-VL500 only)
Used for adjusting the focus of the built-in zoom lens.
Isochronous Start/Stop
Used for turning ON/OFF the output of IEEE1394 isochronous transmitted images. When an image is being transmitted, the
LED in front of the camera will light up orange.
11
DFW-V500
DFW-VL500
FUNCTIONS
One Shot
Used for capturing only one image data (one frame) in the Isochronous OFF state, then transmitted in the Isochronous ON
state. The difference between this function and Trigger described in the next section is that image input is started by the
IEEE1394 command instead of external trigger signals. The timing at which exposure starts is also undefined (within 70 ms
after the command is received).
The LED in front of the camera lights up orange when image data is isochronously transmitted by the One Shot function.
Trigger
Used for setting the external trigger mode to ON or OFF. No normal moving image signals are output in this mode.
Isochronous output is stopped at the point Trigger ON is set even in the Isochronous ON state. When external trigger pulses
(TTL level, negative polarity, pulse width above 1 ms) are input, one image (one frame) is exposed for the specified time
(specified at the shutter) will be output at the end of exposure.
The time from input of external trigger pulse to the start of image data output varies according to the exposure time and timing
of the external trigger pulse for the reference pulse (VD) inside the camera.
Memory_Save/Mem_Save_Ch/Cur_Mem_Ch
Used for memorizing the current camera setting data in the internal memory of the camera. Two types of settings can be
memorized. These are called Memory_Channels 1 and 2.
To memorize the settings, first specify the Memory_Channel recorded at Mem_Save_Ch, and then memorize with
Memory_Save.
The memorized setting data can be read out and reset to the camera. The Memory_Channel to be read out can be specified and
executed at the same time with the Cur_Mem_Ch. It is also possible to return it to the factory setting.

Y/R – Y/B – Y → R/G/B conversion
The DFW-V500/VL500 outputs Y/R – Y/B – Y signals as digital image signals.
The equations for converting these signals to R/G/B signals are as follows.
R ≈ Y + (R – Y)
G ≈ Y – 0.5085 (R – Y) – 0.1864 (B – Y)
B ≈ Y + (B – Y)

SETTINGS OF CAMERA CONTROL AND STATUS REGISTER
This chapter describes CSR addresses using the lower 32 bits of 64 bits. (CSR: Abbreviation of Control and Status Register)
The omitted upper 32 bits are ∗∗∗∗FFFFh. (∗∗∗∗ changes according to the connection of the IEEE1394 Serial Bus.)
Read/Write of the CSR is executed in units of Quadlet (4 bytes). The CSR address is the address of the leading byte of the
Quadlet.
When describing the 32-bit command set for CSR in Hex, bit 0 is described as MSB (Most Significant Bit).

COMMAND SETTING AND OPERATION TIMING
The DFW-V500/VL500 operates synchronously with 33.33 ms cycle internal pulses called VD. VDs are reference signals inside
the camera and cannot be observed from outside the camera.
Even if commands are set to the CSR of the camera, it does not mean that they become effective the instant they have been
written. They become effective after the VD period set to the CSR has been completed and the next VD pulse is generated as
shown in the following figure. The command settings are set for video signals by the Isochronous output after that. (The timing at
which the command settings become effective may be delayed according to the internal state of the camera.)
When operating at a low frame rate such as 7.5 frame/s even if the transmission time of one frame exceeds one VD, and the CSR
settings are changed during transmission, the command settings will not be set to the video signals until the frame currently being
output is complete.

As shown in the following figure, it takes at least about 1 V for the actual isochronous transmission of image data to start or
stop after the Isochronous Start/Stop command (CSR F0F00614h: ISO_EN) has been set to the CSR of the camera. (VDs are
the reference signals inside the camera and cannot be observed from outside the camera.)
Isochronous transmission start/stop is executed in units of frames. Isochronous transmission will not start/stop before one
image output ends. This means that if a low frame rate at which the transmission of one image takes a long time is selected, the
time taken for executing Isochronous Stop will be long.
