Saelig Company (Pittsford, NY) has announced the C429-RS232, a serial and encoded video camera module. The module uses an OmniVision CMOS MT9V011 VGA color sensor, matched with a Vimicro VC0706 control chip. The C429-RS232 has an on-board RS232 serial interface for direct connection to any host PC system with a COMport. Video output in NTSC or PAL is also simultaneously provided. The 38 x 38 x 25 mm C429- RS232 has a built-in 60-degree lens, and serial protocol commands instruct the camera to send a 640 × 480 image for viewing or storage. Serial transfer rate occurs at 115.2 Kbps for transferring color or monochrome images in VGA (640 × 480), QVGA (320 × 240), or QQVGA (160 × 120) resolution. Real-time video output is provided at 30 fps as CVBS signal, NTSC, or PAL. The C429-RS232 needs 80mA from a 5V supply. The on-board Vimicro VC0706 control IC supports a wide range of functions, including color control; mirror image; power save; date & time stamp (RTC); flicker control (50/60 Hz); indoor/ outdoor modes; back-light compensation; motion detection with alarm output; gamma control; frame buffer control; and electronic zoom. The VC0706, which features motorless pan, tilt, and zoom image functions, also integrates a JPEG codec and a motion detection engine.
