Autofocus-zoom block cameras with multiple video outputsOctober 14, 2020
Active Silicon offers a range of compact autofocus-zoom cameras with 3G-SDI, USB (UVC), HDMI and LVDS output. View our AF-zoom block cameras online, among them very compact options and global shutter cameras. The cameras are customizable and can be supplied with application-specific video processing functions programmed into the FPGA. Their fast autofocus-zoom function brings flexible, cost-effective solutions to many imaging tasks. To enable fast and easy evaluation of these camera solutions we offer Camera Evaluation Kits that contain all the parts required for a full camera evaluation.
In addition to our 3G-SDI and USB/HDMI AF-Zoom cameras, we are resellers and integration partners for Tamron cameras, including the compact Tamron MP1110M-VC/WP camera and the global shutter Tamron MP2030M-GS camera. We also supply the popular Sony FCB EV-Series block cameras including the latest Sony FCB-EV7520A camera.
Block cameras assembled with our Harrier interface boards offer enhanced camera control. For applications requiring very long cables, such as pipe inspection, HD-VLC™ technology ensures visually lossless video signal transmission over coax cables in excess of 700 meters. The AF-Zoom functionality brings excellent flexibility to a vision system as the camera unit will quickly re-focus with no mechanical adjustment required when the object scenery changes. Our cameras can also be completely controlled through VISCA™ protocol TTL/RS232/RS485 serial and our advanced software, introducing even more adaptability.
Ideal for numerous applications
The very compact size of our smallest cameras (31.9 x 41.5 x 58.4mm) means they are perfectly suited to applications within the inspection and remote monitoring sectors. High-resolution video is transmitted with extremely low latency, making the modules ideal for pipe inspection, drones and ROVs, ANPR and toll management, medical imaging and general industrial inspection.
