New 20 MP GigE and USB 3 Cameras

(January 9, 2019) - The Imaging Source, international manufacturer of machine vision cameras and software for industrial imaging, announces the launch and immediate availability of four new GigE and USB 3 industrial cameras featuring Sony's 20 MP IMX183 sensor.

The Sony IMX183 is a back-illuminated, 1" rolling-shutter sensor with high sensitivity, outstanding image quality and excellent color reproduction. The monochrome models perform very well even in poor lighting conditions, especially in the near infrared (NIR) range.

The new camera models are available with a USB 3.0 or GigE interface and are USB3 Vision and GigE Vision standard-compliant, ensuring compatibility and simplifying integration with image-processing software.

The cameras' compact form factor and robust industrial design (with 6-pin Hirose port and C/CS-mount) are ideally suited for applications in microscopy and a variety of inspection and measurement tasks. Combining the cameras with The Imaging Source 1" lenses results in a high-resolution camera system with a particularly attractive price to performance ratio.

The Imaging Source provides free software tools and SDKs for Windows and Linux platforms: IC Imaging Control SDK; the end-user software IC Capture for image acquisition; IC 3D for 3D stereo depth estimation; IC Measure for on-screen measurement; and IC Barcode, an SDK for 1- and 2D barcode detection.
