The Phoenix micro compact camera from Lucid Vision has a versatile board design, measuring only 24 x 24 mm and making it the world’s smallest GigE PoE camera. The Phoenix camera features NF-mount and lens options to provide an even smaller footprint, saving 40% in size compared to equivalent C-mount lenses. The first models to be launched in Q1 2018 will feature 3.2 to 5.0 Megapixel models using the IMX265 and IMX264 Sony Pregius CMOS sensors. More Phoenix models featuring Sony Pregius CMOS sensors such as the IMX273 and IMX287 with frame rates up to 291 FPS will be launched later in the year. The Phoenix camera is equipped with low noise, high dynamic range image sensing technology suitable for a wide range of applications such as factory automation, medical, scientific and logistics.
