New from Allied Vision Technologies (AVT), the Prosilica GX2750 camera features Sony's 6 Megapixel Sony ICX694 full-size type 1 sensor. Utilizing Sony's second generation EXview HAD CCD technology, AVT says the ICX694 device provides excellent image quality, high sensitivity and near infrared response combined with low noise imaging and improved anti-blooming.

The Prosilica GX2750 runs 19 frames per second at full 2750 x 2200 resolution. Its Dual GigE Vision interface can be used in single or dual Gigabit port configurations, supporting a sustained data rate of up to 240 MBytes per second (120 Mbytes using a single port) to facilitate high resolution and fast frame rate transfer of uncompressed data. AVT notes that the GX2750's GigE Vision compliant interface offers many benefits including off-the-shelf Ethernet components for reduced integration costs and long cable lengths up to 100 meters on a single copper link or more using switches or fiber optics.

"The 6 Megapixel resolution offered by the GX2750 camera fills a resolution gap in the high end CCD camera market. Customers are no longer forced to compromise between 5 and 8 Megapixel cameras. Combined with excellent quantum efficiency using EXview HAD technology, the GX2750 offers increased resolution without sacrificing imaging performance," comments Paul Kozik, product manager at AVT.

AVT says the camera is suitable for a range of applications including machine vision, industrial applications, medical, scientific, surveillance and ITS. For more information, visit www.alliedvisiontec.com
