An industrial video camera, the XC-HR300, has been developed by Sony Electronics Inc. for machine vision, inspection manufacturing and metrology applications. This analog video camera offers high-resolution output along with computer and peripheral compatibility. Dual ports enable it to output odd and even fields simultaneously. In dual-port mode, the camera can acquire images at 100 fps; reduction of its vertical line readout produces acquisition speeds of up to 440 fps. The camera is compatible with frame grabbers that support dual video input for an image and that are capable of at least 29.5-MHz image digitization.
