Charlotte, United States (September 30, 2011) - The Imaging Source - a multinational manufacturer of industrial cameras - has just brought to market two small USB CMOS cameras with autofocus.
The industrial cameras ship in compact and robust aluminum casing. The color and monochrome models are available with WVGA and 5MP resolutions and are thus ideally suited to applications with a variable working distance, which require an autofocus lens. A number of M12 megapixel lenses (wide angle and macro) are available. These allow the cameras to be deployed in various applications in the fields of automation, traffic management, quality control, medicine, logistics and security.
The cameras ship with USB 2.0 and do not require any additional power supply.
The software support of the cameras leaves nothing to be desired: Both programmers and end-users immediately feel at home. Getting started with the cameras takes only a matter of minutes and integrating them into existing applications takes only a few lines of code. Drivers for LabView, HALCON, DirectX, Twain and WDM are included. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the shipped software. Furthermore, a number of automatic modes are available, which guarantee optimal image quality in varying light conditions. The cameras ship with drivers for Windows XP, Vista and 7, the SDK IC Imaging Control (.NET, ActiveX and C++ class library) and IC Capture. The latter is a powerful end-user application, which allows all camera parameters to be set, live video to be displayed, singular images and image sequences to be captured.
