RICHMOND, British Columbia, Jan. 27, 2011 — The Gazelle Camera Link digital camera series has been launched by Point Grey Research Inc. The series debuts with 2.2- and 4.1-megapixel monochrome models that are based on the high-sensitivity CMOSIS CMV2000 and CMV4000 global shutter CMOS sensors.

With a Camera Link digital interface in Base (two-tap) and Full (eight-tap) configurations, the 2.2-megapixel model produces 2048 × 1088-pixel-resolution images at a maximum rate of 280 fps, while the 4.1-megapixel model delivers 2048 × 2048 images at 150 fps.

The Gazelle features the same compact housing as the company’s Grasshopper cameras, measuring 44 × 29 × 58 mm. A host of features are included for customizing imaging applications, including opto-isolated general-purpose input output for industrial triggering and strobe output, pixel binning and region of interest (ROI) modes, and user configuration sets for custom default settings.

The Gazelle is equipped with an industry-standard C-mount lens holder, a removable optical window, two shrunk delta ribbon connectors with screw locks, onboard temperature and power sensors, and a status LED. Every camera is supplied with an ASA/ISO-compliant tripod mounting bracket at no extra cost.

Additional features include 8- and 10-bit image modes, row windowing with support for up to eight separate ROIs, the ability to install new firmware versions in the field, reverse imaging (X-Y mirroring) and embedded image information. Using a proprietary command set in conjunction with external frame grabber software, users can control camera operation and can configure properties such as gain, exposure and black level.
