Adapter enables motorized lens control on large-format cameras

NOVEMBER 12, 2009--The 35-mm-format GigE cameras, the 11-Mpixel GE4000 and 16-Mpixel GE4900, are typically configured to accept F-mount lenses but, using a Birger adapter, can accept Canon EF lenses.

The adapter brings motorized lens control for functions such as iris and focus control to large-format industrial cameras. The lens control functions are facilitated by connecting the Birger adapter to the RS-232 peripheral port of the camera and can be programmatically operated via the Prosilica SDK. This functionality is suitable for remotely controlled applications such as specialized traffic or security control. The GE4000 and GE4900 can be ordered with the Birger adapter already integrated into the cameras.

PRESS RELEASE

Motorized Lens Control for Prosilica GE4000 and GE4900

Prosilica's 35mm format GigE cameras, the 11 megapixel GE4000 and the 16 Megapixel GE4900, are normally configured to accept F-mount lenses, but using a Birger adaptor can accept Canon EF lenses.

The Birger adaptor is a device that allows a wide range of off-the-shelf Canon EF lenses to be mounted on the GE4000 and GE4900 bringing the added benefit of motorized lens control for functions such as iris and focus control to large format industrial cameras. The lens control functions are facilitated by connecting the Birger adaptor to the RS-232 peripheral port of the camera and can be programmatically operated via the Prosilica SDK. This functionality is particularly suitable for remotely controlled applications such as specialized traffic or security control.

The GE4000 and GE4900 cameras can be ordered with the Birger adaptor already integrated into the camera. For further information, please contact sales@prosilica.com.
