MANNHEIM, Germany, Nov. 14, 2011 — For its Linux-based intelligent cameras, VRmagic offers a back end with Picoblade connectors for Ethernet, USB 2.0 Host, RS-232 and general-purpose input/output and analog video output.
A printed circuit board (PCB) with digital video interaction (DVI) or high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) output can be connected to the cameras. The external board is connected with the PCB stack via a flexible printed circuit cable. Synchronized image recording and display is possible via DVI or HDMI up to 60 Hz.
All of the company’s intelligent cameras are equipped with the DaVinci processor from Texas Instruments, featuring a 300-MHz ARM9 processor running the Linux operating system, and a 600-MHz digital signal processor with 4800 million instructions per second that is entirely available for image processing tasks.
The cameras are equipped with 256-MB RAM and a 512-MB flash module. Options include support for digital video output and audio interface. With a standard Debian Linux operating system, the camera provides developers with a platform for programming applications and transferring them to the camera by means of cross compilers. Host system and camera have the same application programming interface.
