Aethra CCD Webcam Teardown – From Back When Streaming Was Expensive!

This is a Aethra Color CCD Webcam that was part of a system made for remote medical diagnose / consultation for patients in remote locations. The system was mounted in a car to be mobile, so a driver could visit patients and make a call to the doctor do complete the consultation within the patients home. The system was driven by a embedded PC with a complete circuit for the interface, audio/video and running all peripherals on a RS232 daisy chain. The whole setup used some kind of GSM link to transfer the video and audio signal, seemed to be a very expensive and complex setup.
