Point Grey Research Announces New 1.3MP Addition to the Dragonfly2 Family

March 6, 2007 - “Sony’s ICX445 EXview HAD CCD™ technology allows us to offer our OEM and industrial customers the higher resolution and sensitivity they were looking for, in a compact, inexpensive digital camera,” said Vlad Tucakov, Director, Point Grey Research. “We were able to maintain the existing price of the Dragonfly2 series, while delivering more value in our complete camera system, which includes a tripod mounting bracket, GPIO wiring harness, IEEE-1394a cable, 400Mb/s 1394a PCI card and FlyCapture® software CD.”

The new Dragonfly2 DR2-13S2 model can generate full resolution 1280x960 images at 20 FPS, has improved sensitivity and near-IR performance, and minimizes smear. It also incorporates a smaller, streamlined CS-mount lens holder to minimize weight and cost, and a new Analog Devices 12-bit A/D converter for faster digitizing and better timing.The addition of the DR2-13S2 to the Dragonfly2 camera line gives users over ten models to choose from, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of imaging applications. Monochrome and color sensor options include the new 1.3MP ICX445 (1280x960 at 20 FPS), the 0.8MP ICX204 (1024x768 at 30 FPS), and the 0.3MP ICX424 (640x480 at 60 FPS). Users can also select models based on form factor (board level or aluminum enclosure) and lens mount (microlens or C/CS-mount lens holder).The DR2-13S2 contains all the key features of the Dragonfly2 family, such as on-camera color processing, auto iris lens support, asynchronous triggering, pixel binning and regions of interest, automatic synchronization of multiple cameras, in-field firmware upgrades and on-board memory channels.The 1.3MP Dragonfly2 DR2 13S2 is available now from Point Grey Research and its network of distributors.
