Stemmer Imaging is now supplying the Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) Pike F-1100 and F-1600 FireWire cameras. These 11 and 16 megapixel models are said to provide excellent image quality and are especially well suited to demanding applications where image quality, sharpness, precision and detail are essential - such as the sciences or in medical technology.
The new Pike models utilise the same Kodak sensors that are used in the AVT Prosilica GE series. With the sensor's excellent heat dissipation ensuring low noise level, the High SNR mode and the high-quality IR-cut filter combine to provide up to 16-bit genuine image data, higher sensitivity and outstanding image rendering. The new models also retain all the key functions of the Pike camera family, such as the comprehensive smart functions for image optimisation and the camera control. A Secure Image Signature framework provides helpful trigger information coded within or after the image to increase users' control of camera triggering and cabling quality in the system.
All Pike models are equipped with two IEEE 1394b connectors for daisy-chain FireWire networking. Along with the classic copper version, an optional version is available that offers one copper and one fibre-optic connection for long-distance data transfer. As an option, both new models can be equipped with an angled head for use where space is constrained.
