Embedded Imaging Platforms

Critical Link LLC (Syracuse, NY) recently introduced an Embedded Vision Development Kit (VDK) that integrates Basler's dart BCON camera with Critical Link's most popular processor board, interfaces, and onboard FPGA processing.

Critical Link also introduced a new 48MP Imaging Platform with on-board processing that features the AMS/CMOSIS CMV50000 high speed CMOS sensor, Critical Link's Arria 10 SoC image processing board, and HDMI, AIA U3V (USB3.0), Camera Link, and AIA GigE Vision interfaces. Out-of-the-box processing includes bad pixel replacement, 2-point pixel correction, image cropping, and up/down scaling.

Finally, the company now offers a 2MP Ultra-Low-Noise Embedded Imaging Platform with Edge Detection that features superior performance in low-light applications. The BAE/Fairchild Imaging CIS1910 is a 1920 × 1080, 6.5 μm square pixel, low-noise sCMOS sensor with global and rolling shutter modes, and color or mono imagery.

GigE PoE Camera

LUCID Vision Labs, Inc. (Richmond, BC, Canada) announced series production of the first models of its new Phoenix camera family. The Phoenix is a micro compact camera measuring only 24 x 24 mm, making it the industry's smallest GigE PoE camera. The first two models available feature the 2nd generation Sony Pregius IMX265 3.2 Megapixel and the IMX264 5.0 Megapixel global shutter CMOS sensors, running at 38 and 24 fps, respectively.

The Phoenix camera's board layout can be tri-folded into a stacked camera where it resembles a traditional cased camera, but it can also be unfolded into 90 or 180-degree orientations for the ultimate custom fit. The Phoenix further advances industrial miniaturization by offering NF-mount lenses and Hirose's ixIndustrial™ Ethernet connector. The Phoenix camera features a built-in web interface for easy firmware updates with additional capabilities to be added in the near future. All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID's own Arena software development kit.

Video Tracking Mount

Specialised Imaging (Pistone, UK) announced the LOMA (Lightweight Optical Motion Analysis) video tracking mount. Supplied as a compact barebones system, or turnkey solution incorporating high speed IR or visible cameras, LOMA delivers the precision and performance required by demanding security, surveillance and scientific imaging applications.

Robustly constructed, the LOMA tracking mount accommodates large multiple camera payloads (up to 150 kg) enabling high precision optical tracking even in environments subject to vibration, electromagnetic radiation or extremes in temperature and humidity. Independent motors control camera elevation (-20 to + 190°) and provide unlimited azimuth rotation using slip ring technology. Precision motor controls ensure smooth auto track functions to capture distant fast moving objects with an angular accuracy of ± 0.002°. High resolution encoders ensure the LOMA delivers a complete time space position information (TSPI) solution.
