Multi-Screen Imaging

The Transcoder Gateway from Pleora Technologies (Kanata, ON, Canada) transmits GigE Vision and USB3 Vision video to any playback device, including tablets and smartphones. While preserving the high-quality video required for processing and analysis, the image feed is converted into the H.264 compression format and transmitted over a wired or wireless connection using the realtime streaming protocol (RTSP) to a playback device. The image feed can also be saved as IEEE 1588 time-stamped video to USBattached storage media, and output with administrator-specific overlays via an HDMI connection to high-definition displays.

Radiation-Hard Lenses

The new Model 346 non-browning lens from Resolve Optics Ltd. (Chesham, UK) operates with color sensors in areas subject to radiation. The lens uses special glass that withstands long-term exposure to radiation up to a dose of 100 million radians and temperatures to 55°C without discoloration. Able to operate at f/2, the device provides minimum geometric distortion from 400 to 750 nm. Objects can be imaged from 50 mm to infinity without using add-on adapters. The Model 346 lens is designed for optimized use with 15-mm diagonal color CMOS sensors. For Free Info Visit: http://info.hotims.com/55596-149
