Sony's First Smart Camera

The new XCI-SX1 camera is designed to provide OEMs, systems integrators and vision tool manufacturers a rugged, robust component, combining the imager, intelligence and interface in a single plug-in modular that is simple to set up and easy to integrate for efficient factory workflow. Unlike conventional machine vision cameras, images captured by the XCI-SX1 are processed within the camera and the processed data is directly transmitted to a PC over a network.

NEW! 1394.b Digital Cameras

Sony's new XCD-V50 monochrome and XCD-V50CR color IEEE 1394.b VGA cameras incorporate a 1/3" progressive scan CCD with square pixels. These ultra-compact digital cameras feature fast frame rates and 8 or 14-bit output. In addition, their 1394.b interface supports cables up to 100 meters, plus can daisy-chain multiple cameras on a single run to increase cable run capability. And best of all, they are backward compatible with conventional 1394 via IIDC 1.31 support.
