“The Vision Show” in Boston was the location for The Imaging Solutions Group (ISG; Rochester, NY, USA) to introduce its new Finger Lakes Smart Camera Family.

The camera family will support both GigE Vision and Camera Link interfaces.

The Finger Lakes Smart Camera Family will have a number of family members. They will initially support the Eastman Kodak KAI CCD family. Starting with a 16Mp camera (7.4 micron pixel) the family will support all of Kodak’s 5.5 micron CCD sensors. Additional sensors from other manufactures may be used in the future.

The cameras will have a workstation class high-performance Linux CPU and a large FPGA. External triggering and strobe functions are integrated along with a NTSC Composite Video Output and (2) USB2 interfaces. “A very low-noise analog front-end and the Kodak CCD’s will offer stellar image quality,” according to Kerry Van Iseghem, Founder at Imaging Solutions Group.

“Additionally,” Van Iseghem points out, “the ability for customers to program advanced imaging algorithms in C++ and run them on a high-performance Linux CPU offers easy customization and video analytic capabilities.” The Finger Lakes Smart Camera Family will find uses in traditional machine vision, Security & Surveillance and other government and military applications.

“The Vision Show” is North America's leading showcase of machine vision and imaging components and solutions. It is sponsored by the Automated Imaging Association.
