Stemmer Imaging is introducing the new Sony FCB E Series cameras with GigE Vision and GeniCam functionality (Stemmeer Imaging is a member of the GigE Vision and GeniCam standards committee). The new CVC GE family includes a camera equipped with an FGI GigE Vision-compliant interface board produced by Stemmer Imaging and the CVB CameraSuite software development kit. The CVC-1020P GE will be demonstrated for the first time at the Vision Show in Stuttgart, Germany, 9-11 November 2010, and will be available for shipment early in 2011.
Sony FCB E Series colour block cameras are said to offer outstanding performance, including true progressive scan from an HAD CCD image sensor. The camera range features zoom lenses from an industry-leading 36x down to 28x or 18x, combined with 12x digital zoom. With enhanced image stabilisation, white balance, wide D functionalities, motorised iris and a minimum illumination figure down to 0.25 lux, these cameras are claimed to offer exceptional picture clarity in wide-ranging illumination conditions for a host of applications from industrial vision to security and surveillance.
Stemmer Imaging's FGI interface board brings all the well-established benefits of GigE Vision to this versatile camera range, including the ability to transmit images over distances of up to 100m using industry-standard Ethernet cables. By taking full advantage of the progressive scan image sensor, the CVC-1020P GE effectively doubles the image resolution compared to earlier interlaced versions of the cameras. Full control of the camera is possible through the GigE Vision and GeniCam-compliant interface.
The powerful, hardware-independent CVB CameraSuite is a fully featured, easy-to-install software development kit (SDK). It includes everything needed to develop users' own vision applications quickly and easily and features sample applications as well as the SDK.
