USB single-sensor cameras
14 June 2012
The German camera manufacturer VRmagic is extending its portfolio of USB single-sensor cameras with three new high-resolution models.
The CMOS sensors CMV2000 and CMV4000 from Cmosis are highly sensitive and offer excellent image quality at high frame rates, even with large differences in brightness. The global shutter technology means the sensors are suitable for capturing both static and fast moving objects. The 2/3-inch CMV2000 sensor used in the VRmFC-22 delivers 44fps at a resolution of 2,048 x 1,088 pixels. The 1-inch CMV4000 sensor built in the VRmFC-42 has a resolution of 4.2 Megapixels and records up to 24fps.
The VRmC-14 is equipped with the ICX445 CCD sensor from Sony, which can capture up to 22fps at a resolution of 1,296 x 966. The 1/3-inch sensor is characterised by increased sensitivity to light, making it ideal for measurement and positioning purposes.
The three sensors are available in monochrome and colour and are assembled using VRmagic’s ultra-precise sensor positioning technique. Before soldering the sensor is positioned and aligned on the board with highest possible precision.
