ioimage, Micron Add CMOS Imaging Technology to Security Camera

Photonics.com
Mar 2007
Security video camera maker ioimage of Herzliya, Israel, announced it has partnered with semiconductor solutions provider Micron Technology of Boise, Idaho, to develop a new 3-megapixel IP (Internet protocol) security camera with built-in video analytics to automatically detect and track intruders, vehicles and other threats. ioimage incorporated Micron Technology's CMOS imaging technology into the ioicam mmp100dn. The camera's sensor is capable of running full resolution at 15 fps and sub-windowed regions of the field of view at 30 fps or greater. To enhance safety and security for government, public and commercial applications, the camera has picture-in picture capability and pan, tilt and zoom features. The mmp100dn was launched this week at the security industry trade show ISC West in Las Vegas, Nev.


GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
resolution
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
sensor
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
video
Referring to the bandwidth and spectrum location of the signal produced by television or radar scanning.
