Quantcast Frame Rate vs Resolution (USB3 Vision Camera Sensors)
Frame Rate vs Resolution Chart - Region of Interest

Frame Rate vs Resolution PDF 

FLIR tests USB3 Vision camera models at popular resolutions to see what the resulting frame rate increases are. Any increase in frame rate is achieved through changing the region of interest (ROI). Use these charts to save time and easily compare models at specific resolutions. 

Other Helpful Resources for Choosing a Camera:

"Region of Interest", or ROI, allows the user to select a specific portion of an image for the camera to transmit. ROI usually enables the camera to send images at faster frame rates; sacrificing resolution allows more bandwidth for an increase in frame rate. While we've tested all of our USB3 Vision camera models at certain resolutions, this is the first time we've tested all of them with consistent resolutions and placed them in one document for ease-of-use. Note that not all camera sensors increase in frame rate when you change the resolution!

Frame Rates Tested:
2448 x 2448
1600 x 1200
1920 x 1080
1280 x 960
1280 x 720
800 x 600
640 x 480
320 x 240
160 x 120


A couple of notes: 1) This PDF only shows the results from changing the resolution (region of interest) and does not show results for pixel binning modes. For pixel binning information please download the camera's Technical Reference Manual from our Downloads page.
2) The frame rate results in this PDF might be slightly different from other individual results. This is because from time to time we release new firmware for our camera models. New firmware might affect the frame rate results. Computer system setup might also affect the frame rate results. At the very least, this PDF should give you a good idea of the relative frame rate scalability between camera models and sensors.
