High-Resolution USB Cameras

18 Jun 2012

VRmagic is extending its portfolio of USB single sensor cameras with three new models featuring high-resolution sensors.

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 colour and are assembled using VRmagic’s ultra-precise sensor positioning technique. Before soldering, the sensor is positioned and aligned on the board with the highest possible precision. All these new models feature new standard housing.

New Cob C-Mount Design

For all cameras with standard form factor VRmagic has developed a board camera with C-Mount, featuring a dust-proof mounted glass filter and allowing for ultra-precision sensor positioning regarding CMOSIS and SONY sensors.

Furthermore, VRmagic has announced a new sensor generation applying to all C-12 and MS-12 models. They will be converted from former MT9V022 Aptina CMOS sensor to the new sensor type MT9V024.
