Three new USB cameras have been released that employ sensors from CMOSIS and Sony. The CMOSIS 2/3-in. CMV2000 and 1-in. CMV4000 sensors, used in the VRmFC-22 and VRmFC-42, deliver 44 frames/sec at a resolution of 2048 x 1088 pixels and up to 24 frames/sec at 4.2-Mpixel resolution, respectively. The VRmC-14 camera features Sony's 1/3-in. ICX445 CCD image sensor, which can capture up to 22 frames/sec at1296 x 966 pixels. The three sensors are available in monochrome and color.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
USB single-sensor cameras with high-resolution sensors
Mannheim - The German camera manufacturer VRmagic is extending its portfolio of USB single-sensor cameras. From now on three new models with high-resolution sensors are part of the product series.
The CMOS sensors CMV2000 and CMV4000 from CMOSIS are especially light-sensitive and offer excellent image quality at high frame rates, even with great differences in brightness. Due to the global shutter technology the sensors are suitable for capturing both static and fast moving objects. The 2/3" CMV2000 sensor used in the VRmFC-22 delivers 44 frames per second at a resolution of 2048 x 1088 pixels. The 1" CMV4000 sensor built in the VRmFC-42 has a resolution of 4.2 megapixels and records up to 24 fps.
The VRmC-14 is equipped with the ICX445 CCD sensor from Sony, which can shoot up to 22 frames per second at a resolution of 1296 x 966. The 1/3" sensor is characterized by increased sensitivity to light, making it ideal for measurement and positioning purposes.
The three sensors are available in monochrome and color and are assembled using VRmagic’s ultra-precise sensor positioning technique. Before soldering the sensor is positioned and aligned on the board with highest possible precision.
Headquartered in Mannheim, Germany, VRmagic develops, manufactures and sells cameras for industrial image processing, optical tracking systems and VR technology. A second business division specializes in simulators for medical training.
