Imperx - Industrial Cameras

C2010-3G-SDI cameraThe C2010 is an advanced, ruggedized, 1080p progressive scan digital camera in a compact design. It provides the superior motion capture needed in a wide range of applications such as industrial imaging, surveillance, metrology, and medical and scientific imaging. The C2010 incorporates a number of unique features tailored to reduce system complexity, maximize interface bandwidth, and expand the usable operational range.

The C2010 features the Sony Pregius IMX265 Global Shutter CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 in a 1/2.35” optical format delivering up to 60 frames per second with selectable 3G-SDI (SMPTE® 424-1) or HD-SDI (SMPTE® 292M) output. CMOS technology eliminates smear columns from areas of ultra-bright intensity and specular reflections in uncontrolled lighting applications. The camera has excellent sensitivity, fast frame rates, exceptional dynamic range and supports strobe outputs, automatic exposure, automatic gain control with multiple LUTs, and other high-value functions.

The Imperx Cheetah line provides exceptional video image quality with Imperx proprietary processing in a wide range of environments and conditions. In addition, Imperx puts you in control and gives you full access to raw data without corrections. Using the simple, intuitive graphical user interface, you can quickly apply image corrections, if desired. The C2010’s flexibility, image quality, and speed make it suitable for a broad range of diverse and demanding applications, but “one size doesn’t fit all,” and Imperx can help optimize the camera to your exact requirements.
