September 27, 2005 - “Responding to our customer’s needs drove the design of the Dragonfly2. We are excited to offer another product that is at the forefront of innovation in advanced digital camera technology,” said Vlad Tucakov, Director of Point Grey Research.
According to Tucakov: “The Dragonfly2 builds on the key features of the Dragonfly such as asynchronous trigger, four General Purpose IO pins with programmable delays, automatic synchronization of multiple cameras, in field firmware upgrades, and powerful image acquisition software, yet it still maintains ‘drop-in’ compatibility, so critical to our existing users.”
Enhancements to the industry leading Dragonfly2 include on-board color processing with YUV or RGB output, asynchronous hardware trigger up to full frame rate, 2x2 binning for even faster frame rates and/or greater sensitivity, a 12-bit digitizer, a programmable LUT, auto-iris lens support, and user accessible on-board non-volatile memory.
The Dragonfly2 is available with 1/3 in Progressive Scan CCDs running 60fps at 640x480 or 30 fps at 1024x768 in both monochrome and color. The camera is available in single board and extended head “OEM-style” board-level configurations or in a C/CS-mount enclosure.
The Dragonfly2 will be available alongside the popular Dragonfly in October 2005.
