May 31, 2012
May 31, 2012 – Richmond, BC, Canada – Point Grey, one of the world's largest and most innovative providers of
high performance digital cameras, today announces a breakthrough in innovation with its new multi-interfaced Zebra2 camera line.
The Zebra2 fulfills a growing demand in traffic and surveillance installations that require real-time viewing in addition to
post-processing such as ALPR/ANPR and incidence analysis. Available in both 2 MP and 5MP CCD models, the Zebra2 provides the
unique ability to simultaneously stream low latency uncompressed video over HD-SDI as well as send compressed or uncompressed
images through a Gigabit Ethernet interface.
The Zebra2 boasts a second breakthrough innovation with a new proprietary image processing pipeline.
Designed to capture high quality, color rich images in a variety of dynamically lit indoor and outdoor environments,
Point Grey's new image processing
technology maximizes image quality through advanced noise reduction, tone mapping, and color interpolation techniques.
The new image pipeline combined with Sony CCD imagers allows the Zebra2 to capture crisp images of fast moving objects.
Like all Point Grey cameras, the Zebra2 is supported by Point Grey's FlyCapture SDK. Third party software compatibility is
provided through standard protocols including: Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), GigE Vision, and ONVIF.
"Currently, our customers use two separate cameras; one to view low-latency live feed and one for image processing,"
explains Michael Gibbons, Director of Sales and Marketing. "With the Zebra2, these two needs are fulfilled with a single,
high quality camera at an unbeatable price point," adds Mr. Gibbons.
The Zebra2 ZBR2-PGEHD-20S4C-CS (color) model utilizes the Sony ICX274, 1/1.8" CCD producing 1600 x 1200 at 30FPS and is
