Dutch camera manufacturer Videology has released its latest encoder board set, 24CxUSB3.0, a new line of USB 3.0, UVC Compliant, high data rate cameras capable of streaming full HD images without compression. The camera can be used without any external driver whilst using the unitary UVC drivers as many webcams do. Videology Imaging Solutions continues to provide high performance, small form-factor camera solutions at competitive price points.
The new family of 1.2MP and 3.1MP cameras support 720p@60 fps and 1080p@30 fps and optional 10X-18X optical zoom lenses. With a signal to noise ratio of greater than 44dB, a true wide dynamic range of up to 100dB can be achieved. Engineers looking to transfer images rapidly from industrial cameras will benefit from SuperSpeed USB 3.0. SuperSpeed USB offers considerable performance improvements and answers the demand for a high-speed (theoretical transfer rate of 5 Gb/s), low CPU usage and high-bandwidth using a standard PC bus. The effective bandwidth is approximately 400 MB/s, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and 5 times faster than Firewire 800.
Dr. Ronald Müller, Director Product Marketing at Videology’s distributor FRAMOS: “This new Videology series perfectly combines OEM’s need for an easy, ready-to-use product with speed and rich functionality at a competitive price. Easy integration over UVC allows the series to tap its full potential in applications such as machine vision, medical and life science applications, ID badging, customer engagement kiosks and ATMs.
The cameras are provided with 4 configurable IOs for triggering and a complete SDK with mirror and flip image options. Easy-to-use, feature rich in software controllable functions and a small compact board design provides the perfect solution for OEM’s, system integrators and customers building their own imaging systems.
