MAY 6--Responding to industry demand for lower-cost platforms for security and video data analysis, Data Translation Inc. (Marlboro, MA;www.datatranslation.com) has reduced the prices for its DT3120 and DT3130 series of PCI frame grabbers. The DT3120 is now priced at $199. This frame grabber can acquire a standard monochrome, composite color, or S-video color image from a single camera. Its PCI bus and scatter/gather architecture enables it to handle large amounts of image data with no CPU intervention.
The DT3130 series contains the functionality of up to three frame grabbers on one half-size PCI board. Each frame grabber can handle monochrome, composite color, or S-video color input sources. These frame grabbers provide programmable strobe outputs for camera control. The DT3131 through DT3133 frame grabbers are now priced from $495 to $725.
All Data Translation PCI frame grabbers ship with a software bundle featuring evaluations of DT Vision Foundry and GLOBAL LAB Image/2, a ready-to-run application, Windows device drivers, and documentation.
