Imperx - Industrial Cameras

IMPERX HD-SDI models feature CCD sensors from TRUESENSE Imaging and Sony providing high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. These 720p@60fps and 1080p@30fps cameras meet the demands of broadcast, medical, military and surveillance imaging requirements. The cameras are SMPTE 292M compliant. With a small form factor, these cameras are perfect for space constrained applications (SWaPc). All IMPERX HD-SDI cameras meet or exceed MIL Spec 810F requirements.


IMPERX HD-SDI cameras automatically control exposure, gain, iris and white balance with hue correction. The cameras automatic modes and built-in image processing algorithms allow for high quality, high definition imaging in any light conditions.


IMPERX cameras offer auto gain and auto exposure control perfect for any environment. Users can select the entire frame or a portion of the frame to normalize. The auto exposure can be operated from standard to high motion environments. Exposure time and gain can be acquired and turned into metadata. Auto iris lenses can be selected when the application deems appropriate. The user can select full three motor zoom, focus and iris lenses which are completely controllable through the GUI or SDK.


IMPERX HD-SDI cameras conform to MIL SPEC 810F requirements. They are the only COTS cameras on the market that features an extended operating temperature range of -40˚C to +85˚C. The shock/vibration performance exceeds 1000G/100G. IMPERX Bobcat cameras are designed and manufactured to achieve an MTBF > 660,000 hours @ 40˚C. The IMPERX HD-SDI cameras are currently utilized in both manned and autonomous ground, underwater, aerial and rocket launch vehicles.
