Point Greys New 1080p60 Cricket IP-Camera

The new Cricket CR-POE-20S3C model features a 1/2″ Sony IMX185 Exmor CMOS sensor capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution at 60 FPS. This 2.0 MP sensor uses the same 3.75 micron pixel structure as the existing 1.3 MP Cricket camera with the Sony IMX139, which offers impressive low light performance and wide dynamic range. Like all Cricket cameras, the new model uses Sony’s Xarina image processing platform, which enables multi-image WDR functionality, multi-streaming, noise reduction, video encoding and ONVIF support.

The Hyperspectral Era Has Already Begun

February 06, 2014 // Peter Clarke Opinion: the hyperspectral era has already begun Research institute IMEC, a pioneer of hyperspectral imaging, is helping roll out the technology in high-end markets but we should not lose sight of the fact that hyperspectral imaging is already in use in very high volume in consumer market The hyperspectral era has begun and it seems likely that CMOS image sensors are about to embark on classic S-shaped adoption curve for the addition of infrared to visible light sensing. IMEC developed a set of filters to sit on top of a commercially available CMOS image sensor in 2012. And the research has continued to make progress through 2013 and 2014 with IMEC able to define 100 bands across the visible and near-infrared parts of the spectrum from 600-nm to 1000nm wavelength. However, that work by IMEC may have given the impression that complex hyperspectral imaging is aimed at high-value applications in space, in defense, in industy, in agriculture, medical and surveillance applications (see The future of video surveillance is hyperspectral ). It used to be the case that technologies that started off in high value, low volume applications would, over many years, gradually increase volumes and reduce in price due to economies of scale and manufacturing amortizations and trickle down to consumer electronics. But things move a lot faster in the 21st century and hyperspectral imaging is already in use in very high volume in consumer markets. In that regard we must look to […]

Status Of The CMOS Image Sensor Industry 2014

Status of the CMOS Image Sensor Industry 2014 – Product Image “A 10% CAGR is forecast for the CMOS image sensor market from 2013 – 2018” As major technology changes continue to reshape the industrial landscape, a 10% CAGR is forecast for the CMOS image sensor market from 2013 – 2018. The market will reach a total value of US$13B by 2018, driven by consumer and automotive applications. Many different applications are driving CMOS image sensor integration. It’s likely that the consumer market will benefit from new mobile technologies. As such, we foresee consumer applications (tablets, DSC etc.) to be the growth driver over the next five years (which is the opposite of the previous five years, which were driven exclusively by mobile applications). Moreover, after being dominated by CCD, DSC applications are now shifting towards CMOS. And while DSLR will be a substitution market, the next wave is likely to be automotive applications, which could become CIS’ third big market. Indeed, the CIS sensor market in automotive is showing steady growth, which is expected to continue in the coming years; possibly become CIS’ third-largest CIS market. Automotive also demands new technologies such as high dynamicrange sensors and near infra-red response, and will benefit (with appropriate optimization) from technology developments in the handset market. A shift from driving assistance applications to security-based applications may imply significant quality and reliability design improvements in the near future, possibly leading to traditional automotive product providers entering the market with more exuberance.
