IDS GmbH (Woburn, MA) has released the UI-2280SE, a camera with USB 2.0 interface and Sony ICX655 CCD sensor in 5 megapixel resolution (2448 × 2050 pixels). The camera achieves color depth of 12 bits per pixel, thanks to its internal field programmable gate array. As a result, it offers 16 times more accurate mapping of pixel values compared to the usual 8 bits.The UI-2280SE captures moving subjects due to the global shutter sensor and hence simultaneous exposure for all pixel rows. IDS offers the camera in both monochrome and color versions with either IR cut, daylight cut, or plain glass filter options. The UI-2280SE has a compact metal housing and M3 mounting holes.
