OBERSULM, Germany, May 24, 2010 — IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH has announced the release of a free software update for its USB uEye XS industrial camera.

The update adds significant extra functionality to the tiny autofocus camera, including a trigger mode for image capture in different resolutions of up to eight megapixels, digital zoom and backlight compensation. Cameras in the field can take advantage of the new functionality through the company’s easy on-the-fly software upload approach.

The ultracompact USB camera previously supported live image acquisition only in a high-definition-ready 720-pixel format at 1280 × 720 resolution at 15 fps, or 30 fps for images at lower resolutions. In single-frame mode, however, the CMOS sensor from Sony achieves up to 8-megapixel resolution which can now be captured using software triggering. The software update also provides a large choice of additional image formats, which are created by the sensor’s built-in scaling functions.

The small autofocus cameras with a USB port are designed for use in a wide range of industrial applications. Measuring 22 × 24 × 24 mm, they are less than a cubic inch in size and feature face detection and image stabilization. The automatic image controls for exposure, backlight compensation, ISO and white balance are controlled directly by the camera, which ensures high-speed performance.

The new software update with the extra functionality for the camera can be downloaded for free from the company’s web site at
