VISION RESEARCH GLOBAL 4K HIGH-SPEED CAMERA Vision Research introduces the Phantom® Flex4K-GS, a high-speed camera with a 35mm, 9.4-megapixel sensor and global shutter. Designed for demanding applications in the scientific research, defense and aerospace industries, it builds upon the award-winning technology of Vision Research’s Phantom digital cinema products. The Flex4K-GS, developed on top of the established Flex4K platform, employs a custom sensor capable of recording 1,000 frames per second (fps) at 4K resolution, while its global shutter ensures that every pixel is exposed to light at the exact same moment in time. This capability is important in aerospace applications, as it prevents motion artifacts with propellers, motors and other rotating objects and ensures timing precision throughout the entirety of each frame. Also critical to defense is the camera’s build quality. Its isolated electronics and thermal design allow for operation in environments within the temperature range of -20°C to 50°C, all the while maintaining a stable image. The Flex4K-GS is available with either 64GB or 128GB of RAM and works with CineMag IV non-volatile memory magazines for the fastest data transfer. One of its more unique features is the ability to save either uncompressed raw or compressed video in the Apple ProRes 422 HQ video format. When working with ProRes, a 2TB CineMag-IV will hold several hours’ worth of footage. The Flex4K-GS is also fully compatible with Phantom PCC software and can be easily synchronized and used in combination with other Phantom camera models.

Built to achieve frame rates of up to 90 fps, the shutterless and small form-factor GX series are ideal for non-destructive testing in applications that include food inspection, parts and packaging, and electronics inspection. The Calibir GX series of thermal cameras are available in 320 x 240, and 640 x 480 resolutions and feature shutter-less operations. With radiometric functionality, the cameras can accurately measure temperatures between -25°C and +125°C. Advanced calibration allows the camera to deliver images within milliseconds upon power-up, without shutter. GX thermal cameras deliver continued stable performance and are an ideal choice for long-running, remote monitoring systems. Key Features: Resolutions: 320 x 240 and 640 X 480 NETD: <= 65 mK at 30 fps Frame rates: up to 90 fps Compact size: 29 x 29 x 29 mm Shutterless operation or integrated mechanical shutter Radiometric performance (optional): scene temperature range from -25°C to +125°C Advanced trigger options GigE Interface Teledyne DALSA | www.teledynedalsa.com XIMEA CAMERAS WITH SONY CMOS PREGIUS SENSORS XIMEA has released more models with Sony CMOS Pregius™sensors and USB3 Vision. It started with models based on IMX174, IMX252 and IMX250, and now XIMEA has made accessible to the general public the first units with Sony CMOS IMX255 sensor providing 8.9 Mpix at 43 Fps, as well as cameras using the Sony IMX253 sensor with 12.4 Mpix at 31 Fps. These newcomers are part of the xiC line of cameras enhanced with the ever popular USB3 interface. All Sony’s models from the IMX family based on the Pregius™ technology have Global shutter and are able to supply 8, 10 or 12 bit high quality pictures with the Dynamic range higher than 70 dB, extraordinarily low noise, exceptional light sensitivity and remarkable color reproduction, at a speed much higher than Sony CCD equivalents. To leverage the impressive image quality of the newest Sony sensors and their high speed using USB3, XIMEA has cast these ingredients into an extra small form factor housing, measuring only 26 x 26 x 33 mm and weighing just 38 grams. Power requirements are as low as 3 Watt which allows the cameras to be bus powered directly through the USB3 cable. The interface is specified as “USB 3.1 Gen 1” and there is no practical difference from the well-known USB 3.0, still ensuring a high bandwidth of 5 Gbit/s. XIMEA offers various types of connectors - the default being standard USB 3.0 Micro-B, but it is also possible to supply camera variations with the new USB Type-C or Flex line connector ideal for embedded vision systems. Free of charge, the XIMEA API/ SDK supports Windows, Linux, Mac OSX and the most popular Machine Vision Libraries including MVTec Halcon, National Instruments Labview, OpenCV and Mathworks Matlab. An interesting option is a combination these miniature cameras with Linux ARM boards to further enhance the mobility of the overall system package. Next level of speed, unbeatable form factor, attractive price, compatibility and customizability make XIMEA USB3 Vision cameras stand out from the crowd and will also make your applications shine.

The new GO-2400-USB is the third interface variant for the GO-2400 family, which features 2.35-megapixel resolution and the Sony PregiusTM IMX174 CMOS image sensor. With a high performance USB3 Vision interface, the new GO-2400-USB models (monochrome and color) offer frame rates of up to 159 frames per second at full resolution. They join previous GO-2400 models which featured GigE Vision and Power over Mini Camera Link interfaces. The new GO-5101-PMCL models (monochrome and color) feature the Sony PregiusTM IMX264 CMOS image sensor, with 5.1-megapixel resolution and a frame rate of 35.6 frames per second. The GO-5101- PMCL is equipped with a Power over Mini Camera Link interface, but can also be powered over a separate 4-pin connector if desired. JAI’s previously-launched GO-5101- PGE models offer the same sensor and resolution, but with a GigE Vision interface that runs at 22.7 frames per second. Like the other Go Series cameras, the new models offer a rich set of features making them suitable for a wide range of systems and applications. Included are binning functions, region-of-interest (ROI), lookup tables (LUT), sequencer trigger modes, auto level control (auto gain/shutter), and more. Their small size (29 mm x 29 mm x 41.5 mm, excluding lens mount) and light weight (46 grams) are ideal for use in robotics or applications which require repetitive camera movement, as well as for any application where space is at a premium. More importantly, the GO-2400- USB and GO-5101-PMCL share the same high durability features of the Go Series, including an MTBF rating of over 200,000 hours of operation. The cameras support standard C-mount lenses. JAI Inc. | www.jai.com
