Autofocus-zoom block camera range expanded with global shutter options

10 September 2020


Computer imaging & machine vision expert, Active Silicon has added two global shutter modules to its range of autofocus-zoom block cameras. Using these cameras, images of fast-moving objects can be captured without the distortion that occurs with rolling shutter based cameras.

The USB/HDMI AF-Zoom Block Camera with Tamron MP2030M-GS delivers simultaneous HDMI and USB 3.1 video output. It offers a wide range of UVC camera control features (including zoom and focus), so that standard USB Video Class 1.1 (UVC) software applications can be used to control the camera and view the USB video.

The HD-SDI AF-Zoom Block Camera with Tamron MP2030M-GS combines the high-quality CMOS sensor of the Tamron with Active Silicon’s advanced Harrier processing technology, delivering HD-SDI and 3G-SDI outputs, as well as HD-VLC™ compressed video for very long cable length applications.

Both cameras benefit from Tamron’s excellent 30x optical zoom and 16x digital zoom and full HD image output at 1920 x 1080p/30 or 720p/60. Additional features include Wide Dynamic Range mode, 3D noise reduction, keystone correction and motion detection.  

The full specification for the cameras is available on the company website. Other modules in the range include the extremely compact USB/HDMI and 3G-SDI/HD-SDI AF-Zoom Block Cameras with Tamron MP1110M, ideal for pipe inspection and long-reach video applications, and USB/HDMI and  3G-SDI/HD-SDI AF-Zoom Block Camera with Sony FCB-EV7520A, which can be easily retro-fitted into applications that have previously used the FCB-EV7520.
