As the world's leading trade fair for machine vision technology, "VISION 2018" offers an ideal international platform for The Imaging Source (Hall 1, Booth D51) to showcase its latest product developments. High-end cameras with Sony Pregius 8.9MP and 12.3MP global-shutter sensors are now available for the first time with the new ix Industrial® Ethernet interface - the smaller, more robust, active-locking alternative to RJ45 which offers high shock and vibration resistance making it better-suited to industrial environments.
Building on the success of its zoom and autofocus cameras, The Imaging Source has expanded these product portfolios. The new zoom camera is equipped with a 22x zoom lens and Sony Pregius global-shutter sensor technology (IMX252, 3MP). Rounding out the autofocus portfolio is the extremely light-sensitive Sony STARVIS (IMX178, 6MP) rolling-shutter sensor which offers high resolutions at high speeds (60 fps at full resolution).
In the field of embedded vision, The Imaging Source will showcase its complete embedded solutions and applications based on, among others, NVidia's Tegra Platform.
VISION 2018 will take place from November 6 - 8 at Messe Stuttgart. The booth (Hall 1 Booth D51) will be staffed by technical sales and software experts from our offices in Germany, USA and Asia to answer technical questions and offer advice on the most suitable solutions for your application. Please contact our sales department if you would like trade show passes.
As one of the world's most intensively automated regions, Asia's rapid development as a leader in industrial automation is belied by the expansion of one of its largest automation shows, Taipei International Industrial Automation Exhibition, into two halls to accommodate larger booths and increasing numbers of exhibitors.
The Imaging Source and its partners Nevis and Sure Tech exhibited their newest product releases such as the 38 Series cameras featuring the USB 3.1 (gen. 1) Type-C interface and newest Sony Pregius sensors. Booth visitors stopped for the newest cameras but stayed to learn more about IC 3D (using DFK 33UX252 cameras), a flexible stereo camera system which can be used with a variety of industrial cameras from The Imaging Source for a wide range of 3D vision tasks.
From June 27-29, 2018, The Imaging Source and its partner Sunvison welcomed visitors to Integrated Automation Motion & Drives SHENZEHN. The Imaging Source's newest 37 and 38 series monochrome and color industrial cameras featuring the highly-sensitive, low-noise Sony Pregius global-shutter sensors and USB 3.1 (gen. 1) Type-C interface attracted the most attention - especially the 12 MP DFK 38UX253 and the higher-speed (238 fps at 1.6 MP) DFK 37AUX273.
With one of the fastest growing industrial sectors in the world, southern China hosts many important manufacturing tradeshows such as IAMD Shenzehn where the focus on the transformation and integration of new manufacturing processes (e.g. such as the use of artificial intelligence and theoretical modelling in manufacturing processes) are key topics. At IAMD Shenzehn, six sectors were highlighted: intelligent manufacturing, industrial robotics, intelligent control systems, mechanical transmission systems, machine vision and industrial IoT.
In 2015, Sony discontinued all CCD sensors stating that the new Pregius Global Shutter CMOS sensors offer significantly better sensor technology in terms of image quality, sensitivity and performance.
The Sony CCD sensors are global shutter sensors with resolutions between 0.3 MP and 12 MP.
Sony now offers a Pregius global shutter CMOS sensor for each individual CCD sensor with better features and performance at lower costs.

|IMX267||4096×2160||8.9 MP||1 inch||3.45 µm||35|
|IMX253||4096×3000||12.3 MP||1.1 inch||3.45 µm||30|
|IMX304||4096×3000||12.3 MP||1.1 inch||3.45 µm||26|
We strongly recommend that you begin the migration from CCD sensors to CMOS now. Pixel size and sensor format are important factors when transitioning to CMOS sensors and beginning the process now allows for testing of the new CMOS cameras in your application.
If you have questions about switching to CMOS sensors, please contact us.
