DECEMBER 30, 2009-- The Stingray camera is now available with a GigE Vision interface in addition to the FireWire IEEE1394b interface (Stingray GE). With its modular construction, the camera can be customized with various interfaces, housings, sensors, and lens mounts to meet individual application requirements. During its market launch, the Stingray GE will be available in five resolutions from VGA to 5 Mpixels. It can achieve image rates up to 120 frames/s in VGA resolution. Wherever possible, the GE versions of the Stingray have integrated Sony ICX CCD sensors.

Stingray GE: Transformer camera now with GigE interface The AVT Stingray, introduced at the Vision show two years ago, is now available with a GigE Vision interface in addition to the FireWire IEEE1394b interface. The Stingray's modular construction accomodates a wide range of special configuration requirements simply and economically. During its market launch, the Stingray GE will be available in five resolutions from VGA to 5 megapixels. In the development of this model, all of AVT's know-how was used to fully exploit the GigE Vision interface's potential. The results are, among others, high image rates up to 120 fps in VGA resolution.
"Transformer Camera" now more flexible: AVT Stingray GE with GigE Vision Interface
Allied Vision Technologies presents the new Stingray GE. With this new version, the Stingray camera series is now available with both FireWire and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
Stuttgart - Stingray, the quick-change artist of Allied Vision Technologies' cameras, just became even more flexible. Alongside the two prior interface variations of the FireWire Standard (IEEE 1394b with copper or fiber optic), now GigE Vision is also available as an interface option. Thanks to its modular construction, the Stingray can be customized with a multitude of interfaces, housings, sensors and lens mounts to meet every application requirement.
VGA up to 5 megapixels
With its GigE Vision interface, the Stingray GE is especially well-suited to applications requiring high image rates while bridging great distances between the host computer and the camera. The Stingray GE, like all others in the Stingray family, offers extensive functions for image optimization and easy system integration. As such, it's the first GigE Vision camera from Allied Vision Technologies to fully combine the so-called "AVT Smart Features" with a Gigabit Ethernet interface.
Wherever possible, the GE versions of the Stingray have integrated the highly sensitive Sony ICX CCD sensors with resolutions from VGA up to 5 megapixels, the same sensors as in the FireWire models. Thus, the GigE Stingray promises to provide the same high image quality as the FireWire models.
The first Stingray GE models will be available beginning Q2/2010.
