FireWire VGA and XVGA zoom cameras
The Imaging Source, an industrial camera manufacturer and software application developer, has announced a new line of cost effective FireWire VGA and XVGA zoom cameras.
The cameras feature a 4.8-46mm motor zoom lens, auto iris, and one-push auto focus. Zoom and focus are set by stepper motors, allowing adjustments to be reproduced, whilst the iris is driven by a fast linear Hall element. An external trigger input is provided to capture images on demand.
All cameras functions are software controlled and can be either set manually or automatically via an easy-to-use interface. A robust and stable, cast aluminium casing is provided, along with the SDK (software developer kit) 'IC Imaging Control' and end user application 'IC Capture' to control the camera, display and save singular images, image sequences, and image streams.
Optionally, the cameras can be equipped with a ring light system specifically designed for The Imaging Source cameras. The ring light is powered by the camera and controlled via a software interface.
