MvBlueCougar-XD and MvBlueFox3-2 cameras

Share this on social media:

Two new Sony CMOS sensors are to be incorporated into the Matrix Vision product portfolio and will supplement the MvBlueCougar-XD (Dual-GigE) and MvBlueFox3-2 (USB3 Vision) camera ranges.

The 1/1.8-inch IMX250 and 2/3-inch IMX252 sensors boast a reduction in pixel size to 3.45µm, and when used in conjunction with C-mount lenses, the increased pixel density provides higher resolution images when compared with the IMX174 and IMX249 sensors. Thanks to further decreased image noise levels, the dynamic range remains practically unchanged at levels in excess of 71dB, resulting in improved image quality with a higher resolution, as well as an increased image refresh rate.

While the 3.2 megapixel IMX252 will initially be available as the MvBlueCougar-XD104h and  MvBlueFox3-2032, in the future, Matrix Vision customers will be able to order the 5.1 megapixel IMX250 as the MvBlueCougar-XD105a or the MvBlueFox3-2051.

The first samples will be made available during Q3 2015, and the range will be launched during Q1 2016. The lower frame rate version, promised by Sony, will follow shortly after as the MvBlueCougar-X and MvBlueFox3-2 models.
