12x and 30x zoom camera for surveillance and machine vision introduced by Imaging Source

CHARLOTTE, N.C., 5 Feb. 2014. The Imaging Source LLC in Charlotte, N.C., is introducing the GigE zoom cameras with integrated 12x and 30x optical zoom and Power over Ethernet (PoE) for surveillance, machine vision medicine, logistics, and closed-circuit television.

The GigE zoom cameras ship with a megapixel zoom lens powered by a stepper motor. Zoom, focus, iris, and a mechanical infrared cut filter, which can be switched in and out of the electro-optical device's view.

The camera can be controlled manually by the included software. Furthermore, focus and iris can be driven automatically. The cameras can zoom from f= 4.8 to 57 millimeters (12x) and f= 4.3 to 129 millimeters (30x) in only two seconds. A trigger and digital I/Os are available via the trigger input on the rear of the camera.

The 5 megapixel CMOS sensor is integrated into the color, monochrome, and bayer models. The sensor provides several image formats, frame rates, and binning modes.

The cameras output 33 frames per second in 1920-by-1080-pixel HD mode, and can image as quickly as 132 frames per second in 40-by-480 pixel VGA mode and as quickly as 15 frames per second in 2592-by-1944-pixel 5 megapixel mode.

Drivers for LabView, HALCON, Cognex, VisionPro, DirectX, Twain, and WDM are included. Camera parameters and settings can be set via the shipped software. Furthermore, several automatic modes are available for varying light conditions.

The cameras ship with drivers for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, the SDK IC Imaging Control 3.2 (.NET and C++ class library) and IC Capture.
