  • uEye XS USB Camera
Nov 2009
IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbHRequest Info
OBERSULM, Germany, Nov. 16, 2009 – With the release of the new uEye XS model, IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH introduces a <1-cubic in. industrial USB 2.0 camera that features face tracking and image stabilization.

Measuring 22 × 24 × 24 mm, the camera offers an 8-megapixel sensor, built-in autofocus, a complete software development kit and a digital signal processor.

IDS_PRI_uEye.jpgThe face-tracking feature can detect and track up to four faces in real-time image acquisition mode while returning even the angle it is detecting for each face. The electronic stabilization function helps prevent blurred images caused by camera movement and vibration. Automatic image controls such as autoexposure and automatic white balance allow the user to achieve optimum image quality under varying lighting conditions. Two new image acquisition modes extend the range of applications: In “night” mode, up to five frames are added to minimize noise; in “series” mode, the camera captures multiple frames in quick succession. This delivers high frame sequence rates even when multiple cameras are used via USB.

The autofocus system has a viewing angle of 53° and a minimum focusing distance of 100 mm. Autofocus also is tracked even during live image acquisition at a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels and a rate of 15 fps. The frames can be transferred uncompressed or in mjpeg format. All single frames are transferred to the PC at full 8-megapixel resolution.

The camera supports version 3.50, the latest of the uEye software package. This release also provides drivers for 32- and 64-bit operating systems, including Windows 7, Vista and XP. Besides many ready-to-run demo programs with source code in C++, C# and VB, the software package features interfaces for GenICam, ActiveX, Direct3D and popular image processing libraries such as CVB, HALCON, LabView and Vision Pro.

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...
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...
