High Sensitivity 2.8 MP USB 3.0 CCD Camera

Product Announcement from Point Grey Research, Inc.

High Sensitivity 2.8 MP USB 3.0 CCD Camera-Image

The new Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-28S5 camera models are based on color and monochrome versions of the fast and highly sensitive Sony ICX674, a 2/3" CCD featuring 4.54 micron square pixels and capable of sending 1920 x 1440 images at 26 FPS. The ICX674 sensor supports high definition (HD) 1080p30 imaging and uses Sony's EXview HAD CCD II™ technology—a further evolved version of the well-known EXview HAD CCD™ technology—to improve quantum efficiency, reduce smear, and increase sensitivity, including into the near infrared.

Like all Point Grey USB 3.0 cameras, the Grasshopper3 is built on an FPGA and frame buffer-based architecture to provide optimal reliability, a rich set of features, and a full image processing pipeline including color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction and pixel binning.  Additional Grasshopper3 cameras using 6 megapixel and 9.1 megapixel EXview HAD CCD II sensors will be released later this year.

The Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-28S5 color and monochrome models are list priced at USD $1995 and EUR €1495 and are available to order now from Point Grey and its network of distributors.
