VRmS-14 and VRmS-9 multi-sensor cameras
VRmagic has released its multi-sensor camera with a high-resolution CCD sensor from Sony. The VRmS-14 incorporates the Sony ICX455 1/3-inch sensor providing a resolution of 1.25 Megapixels. The CCD sensor with interline transfer technology delivers up to 15fps and has excellent sensitivity into the infrared spectrum. The sensor is available in monochrome and colour.
Furthermore, multi-sensor cameras by VRmagic are now equipped with the MT9M001 CMOS sensor from Aptina. The 1/2-inch sensor integrated into the VRmS-9 can capture 17fps at a resolution of 1,288 x 1,032 pixels and offers advantages such as low power consumption and high performance.
Multi-sensor cameras by VRmagic consist of a base unit, which can be equipped with up to four remote sensors. The sensors are connected with a flex-foil-cable and can be freely positioned. Data is transmitted via LVDS. This makes it possible to acquire pixel-synchronous images from different angles. The image data is coordinated on an FPGA module with 256MB RAM. VRmagic offers multi-sensor cameras as USB versions and as Linux-based, intelligent models.
All intelligent cameras by VRmagic are equipped with the DaVinci processor from Texas Instruments, featuring a 300MHz ARM9 processor running the Linux operating system, and a 600MHz DSP with 4,800 MIPs, which is entirely available for image processing tasks. The cameras are equipped with 256MB RAM and a 512MB flash module. The supported interfaces include Ethernet, USB 2.0 host, RS232 and general purpose I/O, analogue video output as well as an optional digital video output and audio interface.
