Imperx Cheetah CMOS Cameras

Up to 25 MegaPixel

 

CHEETAH is the first IMPERX high performance CMOS product line intended not only for machine vision, but also surveillance, reconnaissance, aerospace and intelligent traffic systems. These cameras have very fast frame rates, high resolution, low noise, wide dynamic range, excellent near-infrared sensitivity, and an extremely flexible architecture so one camera can do multiple jobs (for example, a low resolution video camera and a high resolution still camera). Cheetah cameras incorporate ‘smart’ wide dynamic range technology which monitors each pixel’s exposure and sets the exposure to one of three user selectable values based on the intensity of the source at the pixel. CMOS technology eliminates smear columns from areas of ultra-bright intensity and specular reflections in uncontrolled lighting applications.

Cheetah offers the ultimate in user flexibility with global or rolling shutter modes, selectable 8, 10 or 12-bit digitization, multiple decimation or pixel averaging modes, two configurable inputs, two configurable outputs, and Camera Link® Full (CLF) or USB3Vision (U3V) user interfaces. The configuration capabilities are endless utilizing our easy camera configuration tool with programmability for each input and output. Triggering options include rising or falling edge, de-bounce, internal, computer or external trigger. Output options include trigger mirror, pulse generator or strobe. Cheetah offers internal pre-image processing including auto-white balance, hot pixel correction, defective pixel correction and a look up table (dynamic transfer function correction) for gamma and knee-point corrections. Output options include image positive or image negative, horizontal or vertical image mirror or bit shift.

Imperx Cheetah Capabilities

Some examples of the capabilities of the Cheetah CMOS camera line:

  • Set one frame to average color pixels 4:1 reducing a 3840 x 2160 area of interest down to 1080P at 30 fps, then capture full resolution frames upon trigger signal providing a low resolution video stream for contextual info and high resolution frames for analytics.
  • Set one frame to high sensitivity rolling shutter mode and one to wide dynamic range global then toggle between the frames and combine them in your software for the ultimate low noise wide dynamic range imagery.
  • Set up one frame as a low resolution video stream over the complete field of view, and define a smaller area of interest at full resolution in the second frame to easily track an object of interest.

The possibilities are endless. Bring us your requirements and we’ll help you craft a solution.
