Mannheim. The German camera manufacturer VRmagic is expanding its series of intelligent cameras with three new models featuring high-resolution sensors. The programmable Linux-based cameras will be available at VISION 2011 also with the Sony ICX445 CCD sensor and the CMOS sensor CMV 2000 and CMV 4000 by CMOSIS.

The new VRmDC-14 camera model is equipped with a 1/3" Sony ICX445 CCD sensor with progressive scan interline transfer that has a resolution of 1.25 megapixels (1280 x 960 pixels). With the VRmDFC-22 and the VRmDFC-42 VRmagic presents two cameras with a combination of DaVinci dual core processor, FPGA and CMOS sensors with global shutter. The 2/3" CMV 2000 sensor from CMOSIS has a resolution of 2.2 megapixels (2048 x 1088), the square CMV 4000 sensor offers a 4.2 megapixel resolution (2048 x 2048). The camera models are available in monochrome and colour, as a board-level version or in high-quality aluminium housing with C-mount.

All intelligent cameras by VRmagic are equipped with the DaVinci processor from Texas Instruments, featuring a 300 MHz ARM9 processor running the Linux operating system, and a 600 MHz DSP with 4800 MIPs that is entirely available for image processing tasks. The cameras are equipped with 256 MB RAM and a 512 MB flash module. The supported interfaces include Ethernet, USB 2.0 Host, RS232 and General Purpose I/O, Analog Video Output as well as optionally digital Video-Output and Audio interface.

With a standard Debian Linux operating system, the intelligent camera provides developers with a convenient platform for programming their own applications and transferring them to the camera by means of cross-compilers. Host system and camera have the same API.
