Vieworks cameras use piezo-crystal stage to shift CCD for various resolutions

June 6, 2012
Vision Systems Technology is distributing the recently launched Vieworks VN Series cameras, which employ piezo-crystal stage technology to micro-shift the CCD sensor.

Recently launched Vieworks VN Series cameras employ piezo-crystal stage technology to micro-shift the CCD sensor by 1/3 or 1/2 the pixel size to capture images with resolutions up to 296 Mpixels. The ability to set a custom resolution enables the camera to replace multiple cameras used in static applications, and others such as document imaging. Models in the series include VN-8MC, VN-11MC, VN-16MC, and VN-29MC, each available in monochrome or color.
