London, ON, October 5th, 2021 - Available now, all Redwood industrial video cameras can be ordered with a new fiber optic CoaXPress output option, enabling reliable, ultra-long-distance connections for these high-resolution, high data rate cameras. No frame drops - from 10km away or more!
CoaxPress-over-Fiber protocol uses low-cost and widely available QSFP+ fiber optic transceivers, which can transport the same net data bandwidth as 4x CXP-12 coaxial connections. With fiber optic point-to-point connections from the camera to the receiver, systems designers get the same deterministic video transfer performance that's made CoaXPress the interface of choice in high-performance and timing-critical vision systems, with the advantage of reaching cable lengths that would otherwise have required additional fiber extenders to achieve.
CoaXPress-over-Fiber has become an adopted extension to the CoaXPress standard, and is ready to be deployed in the next generation of advanced digital imaging applications.
See for yourself! Starting today at VISION 2021 in Stuttgart, Germany, visitors can see a Redwood 65MP color camera with CoaXPress-over-Fiber output on display at the Euresys booth, paired with their high-performance CoaxLink QSFP+ frame grabber in a live demonstration. Full resolution 65MP (9344x7000) video at up to 71fps through fiber cabling.
Now available, the Redwood 120C335 models feature the AMS CMV12000, an APS-C 12.6MP global shutter sensor.
At full 4096 x 3072 resolution, frame rates up to 335fps (8-bit output), 299fps (10-bit output) or 132fps (12-bit output) can be achieved. Using a selectable sensor window area, the 120C335 can output Ultra-HD 3840x2160 at 475fps, or HD 1920x1080 at 936fps.
The high-sensitivity 5.5μm square pixels use global shutter technology for artifact-free motion imaging.
Both monochrome and color camera models are available to suit a variety of applications in industrial and scientific imaging, wide area observation, as well as virtual reality and special effects.
