The company’s latest CMOS camera platform does not require a PC; image data are directly transmitted to a monitor via HDMI/DVI or directly saved on a memory card. An onboard processor and embedded Linux operating system enable HD live streams, up to 5 Mpixels with maximum 30 frames/s. Interfaces include Fast Ethernet (RJ-45), USB 2.0, HDMI (DVI), SVIDEO (Y/C), infrared, and keypad. Streams and still images can be scaled and compressed with H.264 (max. 16 Mbits/s), MPEG2, JPEG, and MJPEG encoding/decoding. The camera platform supports development of facial recognition and motion detection applications.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE

New Platform for Customer-Specific Camera Design with High Definition, Embedded Linux, CMOS

The new CMOS camera platform does no longer require a PC: image data is directly transmitted to the monitor via HDMI/DVI or directly saved on the memory card by snapshot. The processor and the Embedded Linux operating system are directly on the board. The platform provides high definition live streams, up to 5 megapixels, max. 20 fps, FTP access to the web server and a great variety of interfaces with Fast Ethernet (RJ45), USB (2.0), HDMI (DVI), SVIDEO (Y/C), infrared and keypad. Also on the data side the system offers infinite possibilities. Streams and still images can be scaled and compressed practically without limitation.

Encoding/Decoding is based on H264 (max 16 MBit/s), MPEG2, JPEG and MJPEG. Comprehensive camera adjustments and smart image processing features are provided. It is also possible to implement facial recognition and motion detection. The concept is designed for a wide range of applications – the new camera concept meets all sorts of requirements.

For 30 years now Kappa optronics GmbH has been a well-established German camera supplier with a sharpened focus on customer-specific industrial camera solutions, be it for a camera series of 20 or 20,000 units at a time. Kappa possesses the specific know-how for the development and manufacture of extremely rugged cameras with outstanding signal quality. Due to its innovative strength and profound experience Kappa is a partner for demanding visualization projects. Kappa has grown organically and today has about 100 employees.
