IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH has released a free software update for its USB uEye XS industrial camera. The camera previously supported live image acquisition in a high-definition-ready 720-pixel format at 1280 x 720 resolution at 15 fps only, or at 30 fps for images at lower resolutions. In single-frame mode, however, the CMOS sensor from Sony achieves up to 8-megapixel resolution that now can be captured using software triggering. The software also provides a large choice of additional image formats, which are created by the sensor’s built-in scaling functions. The automatic image controls for exposure, backlight compensation, ISO (International Standards Organization) and white balance are controlled directly by the camera, which ensures high-speed performance.

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...
Contraction of "picture element." A small element of a scene, often the smallest resolvable area, in which an average brightness value is determined and used to represent that portion of the scene. Pixels are arranged in a rectangular array to form a complete image.
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.
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
white balance
A feature of some imaging devices, such as digital cameras, that allows them to compensate for different lighting conditions by adjusting the color balance based on the difference between a white object in the image and a reference white.
