Progressive Scan Camera offers megapixel resolution.
March 14, 2005 08:10 - Featuring 1 million gate FPGA with 32-bit RISC processor, Lynx Model IPX-1M48-L delivers maximum frame rate of 140 fps. Users can program dynamic range by selecting from 8, 10, or 12-bit output, applying multiple Look-Up-Tables, binning vertically and horizontally, and making dynamic transfer function correction. Additional programmable features include frame rate, shutter, long integration, strobe output, gain and offset, AOI, external trigger, and dynamic S/N correction.
Imperx IPX-1M48-L Offers 'Screaming Video' at Megapixel Resolution
1 March 2005 (Boca Raton, Fla.) -- Imperx, Inc. has introduced the advanced IPX-1M48-L high-speed progressive scan camera, which trumps "streaming video" by offering "screaming video" with both megapixel resolution and beyond-video frame rate. This new member of Imperx' Lynx line of high-speed cameras delivers a maximum frame rate of 140 fps (better than four times the standard video rate) with reduced resolution, making it ideal for machine vision, monitoring of fast processes, surveillance, intelligent transportation systems, character recognition and other applications requiring both high resolution and high speed.
LYNX Series cameras deliver not only the features that customers have come to appreciate and expect from Imperx, but a host of new programmable features that provide even more flexibility for their advanced applications. The LYNX series cameras achieve an extraordinary performance level through their unique image processing engine: a 1 million gate FPGA with 32-bit RISC processor. This processing power gives users superb ability to tailor the cameras' functionality to their applications.
For example, users can program the dynamic range by selecting from an 8, 10, or 12-bit output, applying multiple Look-Up-Tables, binning vertically and horizontally, and making dynamic transfer-function corrections. They can also automatically put image data out in different formats to suite different applications. Additional programmable features include frame rate, shutter, long integration, strobe output, gain and offset, AOI, external trigger, dynamic S/N correction, temperature monitor and alarm. Users can field-upgrade the cameras' software and firmware, automatic iris control (optional) and even built-in test patterns.
These highly intelligent cameras incorporate the Camera Link? interface standard, giving users easy access for programming and serial communication.
Imperx, Inc. designs, develops and manufactures advanced, state-of-the-art imaging products used in the machine vision, medical, defense, surveillance and astronomy markets ¨C wherever there is a need to capture high-resolution digital color or black/white images for both still and full-rate motion processing. Imperx' manufacturing facilities are certified for ISO 9002 compliance.
Imperx' product portfolio is focused in four core areas: cameras, frame grabbers, adapters and repeaters. The MDC mega-pixel camera line features rich, high resolution, high speed, color and monochrome image-capture devices, and offers unprecedented performance for today's demanding machine vision and surveillance applications. The VCE series of analog frame grabbers have achieved number-one market share. FrameLink? digital frame grabbers for Camera Link? cameras are the only products of their kind on the market! The Adapt-A-Link? series of adapters allows customers to leverage their investment in existing cameras or frame grabbers with dissimilar interfaces by performing the necessary adaptation. The Imperx series of Adapt-A-Link? repeaters overcomes distance limits imposed by the Camera Link? and LVDS standards, providing virtually unlimited physical reach for distributed image-sensing systems.
