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.
