CMOS camera platform
Kappa optronics has released a new platform for customer-specific camera design with high definition, embedded Linux, and CMOS sensor.
The CMOS camera platform doesn't require a PC: image data is transmitted directly to the monitor via HDMI/DVI or saved on the memory card. The processor and the embedded Linux operating system are on the camera board.
The platform provides high definition live streams, up to 5 Megapixel resolution, a maximum frame rate of 20fps, FTP access to the web server and a variety of interfaces, including Ethernet (RJ45), USB (2.0), HDMI (DVI), SVIDEO (Y/C), infrared and keypad.
Data streams and still images can be scaled and compressed practically without limitation. Encoding/decoding is based on H264 (max. 16Mb/s), MPEG2, JPEG and MJPEG. Comprehensive camera adjustments and smart image processing features are provided. It is also possible to implement facial recognition and motion detection onboard the camera. The concept is designed for a wide range of applications.
