JAI (Copenhagen, Denmark), exhibiting at the Stemmer Imaging stand, will unveil four new digital cameras that integrate PoCL and are equipped with a Mini-CameraLink socket. They offer a resolution of 1.45 megapixels at a maximum of 31 frames per second or 2 megapixels at 25fps.

Dalsa (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) will show its Falcon 1.4M100, a PoCL-compatible 1.4 megapixel camera with 100fps, also on the Stemmer stand. Dalsa also will exhibit the first PoCL-compatible frame grabbers in its X64 Xcelera CL series.

Firewire b, (IEEE-1394b transmission standard), which permits data speeds of up to 800 MBit/s, is becoming more attractive, and GigE also will have a prominent role at VISION. For example, MaxxVision (Stuttgart) will debut cameras in the Sony XCD Series with a Firewire b interface as well as a series of GigE cameras with 16 models.

Basler (Ahrensburg, Germany) will present two innovations at VISION: the 5-migapixel two-dimensional camera in its Pioneer series and a 90-degree housing version from its Scout series.

SVS-VISTEK (Seefeld, Germany) will exhibit its svs625, a 5-migapixel CCD camera that no longer requires frame grabbers and features a transmission distance of up to 100 meters.
