Key features

  • High resolution sensors support (like the Kodak 16Mpix CCD or Aptina 5Mpix CMOS)
  • High speed compression: up to 80 MPix/s
  • Many formats for recording video: Quicktime, OGM, JPEG Image Sequence, JP4 RAW Image Sequence, Ogg Theora, HDR
  • Many available data interfaces: Compact Flash Card, SATA (HDD or Raid), Ethernet 100Mbit, USB, RS-232;
  • User friendly and open scripting on the camera: PHP (API, examples), CGI, C, C++, etc.
  • Firmware sources and binaries for main CPU and FPGA are available on SF.net The SDK and full hardware documentation are also freely available. (353)

Power

  • 48V DC with midspan power supply/injector
  • or optionally a 12-36V with power injector (non IEEE802.3af compliant)
  • or single 3.3V source
  • Typical power consumption between 2.4W - 5.8W depending on operation and load

Interesting possibilities

  • Hardware synchronized recording of multiple images (multiple sensors, multiple cameras, external trigger)
  • Connecting infinite sensors is possible (one 10359 board per three sensor)
  • Standard GNU/Linux distribution offers the possibility to port existing software and kernel drivers to provide support for more external devices (USB gadgets, converters, ...)
