Stemmer Imaging is introducing a new family of AVT Manta GigE cameras which offers a rich range of functions yet remain cost-effective. The new Manta range of simple, robust GigE cameras is available in both monochrome and colour versions with popular Sony CCD sensors providing resolution from VGA to 2 Mpixels.
The emphasis with the Manta range has been on the use of cost-effective components and a design that reduces manufacturing costs, while maintaining a feature set generally found only on more expensive cameras. With a new single-board electronic architecture and a rugged cast housing, Manta offers proven AVT dependability for a wide range of industrial applications in the areas of machine vision, quality control, industrial inspection, OEM products and medical imaging that do not require complex and demanding image pre-processing functions.
Manta is AVT's entry-level GigE camera, yet Stemmer Imaging says it offers more than equivalent cameras from other manufacturers. For example, the colour versions include colour interpolation/colour correction functions that outperform most cameras in this price class. Camera users will be impressed by the extent of smart features available with Manta, including ROI (Region of Interest Readout), auto-exposure, white balance, hue, saturation, sharpness (colour versions), gain, gamma (0.5), selectable ROI for auto features, binning, image hold, StreamBytesPerSecond (easy bandwidth control) and three storable user sets.
