This is color camera in progressive scanning (non-interlace scanning) method and composed of camera head portion and controller portion.
Image signal is outputted in digital RGB signal (each 8-bit) from controller portion.
Only inputting of external trigger into camera allows random reset and electronic shutter image can be obtained.
Analogue image included color signal of R, G, and B is outputted as white and black signal from camera head. And digital image signal (EIA-644) of 10-bit is outputted from digital connector and supplied to camera controller.
Color complex signal is not outputted.


Smear at high speed shuttering is reduced comparing with conventional camera as new designed interline transferring CCD is adopted.
Such changeover operation as setting of electronic shutter speed and shutter mode (usually random), etc. can be controlled by back panel of camera and personal computer through RS-232C.
Color matrix adjustment and auto white balance set are operated using controller panel.
Stroboscope light emitting signal is equipped.
Electronic shutter release timing at random shutter is outputted as stroboscope light emitting trigger signal. (TTL level and active L)

Color filter RGB primitive color mosaic on chip

Camera controller

Controller portion is composed of image memory, matrix (DSP), and color space converter and digital image signal from camera head are once stored into image memory.
At color matrix DSP portion, color signal reproducing is executed and white balance and gamma compensation, etc. are processed in real time, and YUV 4:2:2 signal are outputted in R, G, and B (each 8-bit) format.
At color space converter portion, YUV 4:2:2 signal are converted into R, G, and B (each 8-bit) and outputted in EIA-644: LVDS level.

Connecting cable

  Use following model cable to connect camera head and controller portion.
  • Digital image signal DG36 - ℜℜD
• Head drive power 12W - ℜℜ
  (ℜℜ indicates numeral value required cable length in meter.)
Maximum cable length is 20meter.
