Prosilica GT cameras
Allied Vision Technologies has launched the production of four Prosilica GT camera models. The GigE camera family is designed for imaging in extreme environments and fluctuating lighting conditions.
The Prosilica GT1290, GT1380, GT1600 and GT2450 offers resolutions from 1 to 5 Megapixel using a selection of high quality progressive scan and Sony EXview HAD CCD sensors.
The Prosilica GT cameras offer new features well suited for applications like intelligent traffic systems, traffic monitoring, public security, surveillance, military and space applications as well as demanding industrial inspection and machine vision environments.
Precise iris lens control allows users to select a fixed F-stop to optimise the depth of field, exposure time and gain; DC Auto iris support enables low cost lens control from the security market; IEEE1588 facilitates camera and peripheral device clock synchronisation across an Ethernet network; while chunk data offers metadata information with captured images such as gain, exposure or region of interest.
Advanced colour processing, gamma correction and multiple LUT push applications even further by offloading host processes and allowing users to capture the most suitable image directly out of the camera. High frame rate capability supports behaviour often required in a targeted event, such as a passing vehicle in a traffic application where multiples images of a license plate are captured in quick succession to improve ANPR accuracy.
All Prosilica GT cameras feature Power over Ethernet (PoE), a technology that supplies power along with image data through the camera’s Gigabit Ethernet interface without the need for additional cabling.
