JANUARY 27, 2009--Running at 30 frames/s at full 1920 x 1080 resolution, and faster using Area of Interest Readout (AOI), the GE1910 camera features the Kodak KAI-02150, a new generation of 2/3-in. optical format, progressive-scan CCD sensors that bring high definition to industrial imaging. The sensor exhibits 40% greater quantum efficiency, very low smear, low noise, and high image quality, and is compatible with a range of lenses. A C-mount lens mount with adjustable back focus is included and is available in color or monochrome models. A GigE Vision-compliant interface renders the camera virtually plug-and-play and does not require a frame grabber. The interface allows cable lengths up to 100-m long using conventional Ethernet cabling (Cat5e) and longer lengths using fiberoptic cables.

PRESS RELEASE

Prosilica Releases HD Resolution Camera with GigE Interface

GE1910 features new generation of High Definition sensor

Prosilica is pleased to introduce the GE1910 high performance HD resolution industrial CCD camera with Gigabit Ethernet interface.

2/3" optical format for High Definition industrial market

Running at 30 frames per second at full 1920 x 1080 resolution, and even faster using Area of Interest Readout (AOI), the GE1910 features the Kodak KAI-02150, a new generation of 2/3" optical format, progressive scan CCD sensors that bring High Definition to the industrial imaging market.

The sensor provides advances in term of overall performance including 40% greater quantum efficiency, very low smear, low noise and superior image quality. The 2/3" sensor is compatible with a very wide range of lenses.

The GE1910 has a C-mount lens mount with adjustable back focus and is available in color or monochrome models. The camera is ideally suited for applications such as industrial inspection, machine vision, LCD panel inspection, medical imaging, ophthalmology, aeronautical and aerospace, public security, surveillance, traffic imaging, and OEM applications.

Rich set of camera features

The GE1910 incorporates an advanced set of rich camera features including snapshot/global shutter, pixel binning, area of interest readout, external trigger and sync I/O, RS-232 peripheral port, exposure, gain and offset controls, non-volatile configuration memory, event recorder capability, pre-trigger recording, programmable strobe functions, multicasting, configurable IP addresses, autoexposure and autowhite balance controls.

Ease of integration and third-party compatibility

Thanks to its GigE Vision compliant gigabit Ethernet interface, the GE1910 is virtually plug-and-play and does not require a frame-grabber to operate. The interface also allows cable lengths of up to 100m (300ft) long using conventional Ethernet cabling (Cat5e) and even longer lengths using fiber optic cables.

The Prosilica GigE sample viewer and the customer-acclaimed SDK are both available free of charge. The SDK supports Windows (2000, XP and Vista), Linux and QNX operating systems on both Intel and Power PC platforms. For users that prefer third party imaging libraries and applications, Prosilica's GigE Vision cameras are plug-and-play compatible with software from Matrox, National Instruments, Stemmer Imaging, Norpix, MVTec, and others.
