ONE-PIECE COLOR VIDEO CAMERA
The XC-555 Interline Transfer CCD color video camera offers
a one-piece design in place of a bulky CCU and measures 22
x 22 x 75 mm. This allows users to install the camera in such
space-restricted applications as machine vision, multimedia
and remote monitoring. The XC-555 provides 768 x 494 effective
pixels with a horizontal resolution of 470 TV lines and 48
dB signal-to-noise, as well as a DSP that can be controlled
by a computer remotely via an RS-232 interface. Thus, such
functions as shutter speed, red/blue level, pedestal, AGC
and CCD-IRIS all fall under the user's controls. Other features
include external synchronization and VBS and Y/C outputs.
