New Series of USB 2.0 Cameras
The Imaging Source - a multi-national manufacturer of industrial cameras - has just brought to market a new series of CCD cameras, available in 27 models. The cameras ship in robust industrial casing with a C/CS lens mount and optionally with a trigger and digital I/Os. The color, monochrome and Bayer models are available in VGA, XGA and SXGA resolutions.
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 is 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/Visa, the SDK "IC Imaging Control" and "IC Capture". The latter is a powerful end-user application, which allows all cameras parameters to be set, live video to be displayed, singular images and image sequences to be captured.
As an optional extra, the cameras can be combined with a ringlight system, which has been specifically designed by The Imaging Source for its cameras. All ringlight parameters can be adjusted using "IC Imaging Control" and "IC Capture".
