News Products news 5K Camera from XIMEA offers 20Mp at 33fps over 300m cable

Compact camera CMOSIS CMV20000 PCI Express 20 Mpix

New record of distance and speed by PCI Express based camera line called -  xiB


Munster, December 12, 2013– XIMEA has presented the first new model called CB200 at the SPS IPC Drives show in Nurnberg – a 5K custom digital camera which delivers 20Mpixel and crystal clear images at 33 frames per second over distances as long as 300 meters, made possible with the help of a fiberoptic cable.
The camera’s data and control interface are fully compliant with PCI Express External Cabling Specifications, which allows data throughput of more than 1700MB/sec over 300 meters - more than any other interface will be able to compete with.
Such data transfer is needed for this model, which is based on the newest 20 Mpix sensors from CMOSIS, called the CMV20000. This high quality CMOS sensor has Global Shutter, providing 12 bit images at an unprecedented speed. Performance of such quality can be even further improved through adding optional cooling.
Enhancing the convenience factor, a PCIe cable interface implemented inside the camera eliminates any frame grabber needs. Image data is seamlessly delivered and is stored right inside the PC memory, becoming immediately available for processing and encoding by CPU and/or GPU.
In order to provide users with synchronization ability with external equipment and other cameras, this model is equipped with opto-isolated inputs and outputs, which are exposed from a compact and robust camera body with an industrial connector. In order to slim down the footprint, both connectors are located on the bottom.
Speaking of footprint - camera’s housing measures are an incredible 60 x 60 x 38 mm. This fact also provided the initial inspiration behind naming the part number “CB” – Cigarette Box.
As usual, XIMEA cameras offer extremely low power consumption, consisting of only 5 Watt, allowing delivery through the fiberoptic cable itself and thus eliminating the need for any additional infrastructure and making integration or change even easier.
This model is in addition equipped with an integrated interface compatible with Canon EF-mount lens, and also allows remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization.
Like always, XIMEA SDK/API provides the comfort of choosing from Windows or Linux, and 30 Machine Vision Libraries, including MVTec Halcon, National Instruments Labview, OpenCV or Norpix Streampix. This means users can choose whatever one best suits their high resolution and high speed needs. Applications examples include a flat panel display, printed circuit board examination, persistent stadium and border security, wide area surveillance, and aerial or city mapping.
