(The Imaging Source: Charlotte, NC) -- The Imaging Source, an international manufacturer of machine vision cameras and software for industrial imaging, has introduced a series of industrial and single-board cameras featuring Aptina CMOS sensors.

Available in board-level and housed form factors, the 27-camera series features a compact and robust industrial design with C/CS mount and is available with a USB 3.0 interface in monochrome and color. The 5 and 10 megapixel CMOS cameras come equipped with the Aptina MT9P006 and MT9J003 sensors, respectively, and are distinguished by their compact design (starting at 30 x 30 x 10 mm) and impressive image quality as well as their excellent price-performance ratio. Even under poor lighting conditions, these cameras deliver excellent images.

As additional features, a free 1D and 2D barcode SDK as well as software for on-screen measurement and image acquisition are also included.

Comprehensive software support for Windows and Linux leaves nothing to be desired: Both programmers and end-users immediately feel at home. Getting started with the cameras takes only a matter of minutes, and integrating them into existing applications takes only a few lines of code. All cameras are shipped with drivers for LabView, HALCON, MERLIC, VisionPro, DirectX, Twain, and NeuroCheck. All camera parameters and settings can be set via the shipped software. End-user applications, an SDK consisting of .NET and ActiveX components, and a C++ class library for W7/8, Vista and XP, as well as drivers for third-party software are included with the cameras. In addition, powerful automatic modes ensure optimal image quality even under varying lighting conditions.

The cameras are shipped with: Driver for Windows XP, Vista, W7/8, and the SDK IC Imaging Control 3.2 (.NET and C++ library) and IC Capture. IC Capture is a powerful end-user software to set all camera parameters and to display and save single images and image sequences.
