Videor has introduced products from Fujinon and Tamron as well as the extended USB camera series from Sentech: in the T Series all cameras can be triggered by software command, and hardware-triggered models are under development.
The cameras are available in VGA, XGA, SXGA and UXGA, with a choice of colour or monochrome, as a board camera or in a housing. Resolution ranges up to 1,600 x 1,200 pixels. The 2 Megapixel versions come with the latest 1/1.8-inch CCD sensors from Sony and deliver a frame rate of 15fps at full resolution.
DirectX drivers for Windows XP and Vista are included, as well as a viewing and configuration package. Additionally, a complete SDK is available free of charge as well as drivers for certain Linux distributions.
Sentech has also increased its product range for cameras with analogue interfaces to cater for the continuing high demand in this segment. The range includes the STC-C42A and STC-C43A models: two new monochrome cameras in 2:1 interlaced technology with a standard VBS output. The cameras are available with 1/2-inch or 1/3-inch CCD sensor installed in a housing sized 28 x 28 x 48mm. The new STC-C631 board cameras, sized 26 x 26mm without housing, also generate a monochrome 2:1 interlaced signal compliant with the CCIR standard.
