The Imaging Source's preassembled embedded development kits for NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ deliver plug-and-play efficiency for the rapid development of embedded vision and AI projects for applications in logistics, automation and industrial internet of things (IIoT). The kits' Sony sensor camera modules offer exceptional image quality and color fidelity and ensure sustainable application design.
The development kits come equipped with a flashed SD card containing all necessary MIPI CSI-2 or FPD-Link III drivers and a custom-designed system image. This image includes significant convenience functionality such as Jupyter notebooks, enabling developers to quickly get started with the camera sensor via GStreamer elements. All sensors use either the standard video4linux API or NVIDIA's proprietary API based on the libargus programming interface. The video4linux interface for example provides RAW video data and allows direct control of all sensor parameters.
Leveraging the hardware ISP (Image Signal Processor) available on all Jetson platforms, the NVIDIA libargus interface delivers a processed video stream to the application with de-mosaicing, color correction and white balance algorithms applied. The Imaging Source provides a default configuration file for the ISP. Using the GStreamer interface for libargus, the application can interface with NVIDIA's standard Jetson ecosystem software stack which enables the efficient integration of powerful image processing frameworks such as DeepStream, Visionworks and others.
Established in 1990, The Imaging Source is one of the leading manufacturers of industrial cameras, video converters and embedded vision components for factory automation, quality assurance, medicine, science, security and a variety of other markets.
Our comprehensive range of cameras with USB 3.1, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, GigE, MIPI interfaces and other innovative machine vision products are renowned for their high quality and ability to meet the performance requirements of demanding applications.
