The basic components of the Muttley
Cam camera setup are; a color CCD digital camera with infrared
diodes added, an interface board for audio input, a linear RF
amplifier, and a television transmitter. Power is provided by
two 12V DC batteries carried in Muttley's backpack. The camera,
infrared diodes, and an audio microphone are contained in a "Head"
unit approximately 3 x 2 x 1 1/8 inches. The "Head"
unit mounts to Muttley's head gear with velcro and has a cable
from it to the "Tansmitter" unit which is mounted on
the center of the backpack. The "Transmitter" unit,
a plastic case approximately 5¼ x 5 x 1½ inches,
contains the power regulation circuitry, the switching circuitry,
the audio interface board, the RF amplifier, and the TV transmitter.
Power on/off, night vision on/off, RF-amp on/off and RF-amp hi/low
switches are located on the "Transmitter" unit, along
with LEDs, indicating power "on" and RF-amp "on",
and the power, camera and antenna jacks.
The current version of
uses an XCam2 from X10.
