Cameras Exploit Sony’s 1/3-in. CMOS Image Sensors

Two models added Genie Nano Camera Series employ the latest IMX273 sensors from the Sony Pregius family of 1/3-in. CMOS image sensors that replace Sony’s soon-to-be discontinued CCD sensors. The new models are offered in 1.6-MPixel (1456 x 1088) resolution with a GigE Vision interface in either color or monochrome. The Nano 1.6 MP models will be followed by two new additional 1/3” VGA Nano models to replace the ICX424 CCD-based cameras in Q4. The new cameras are drop-in replacements for the original CCD-based models, at the same low cost but with a frame rate almost seven times faster. i.e., up to 160 fps in 1.6 MPixels and up to 400 fps in VGA.
