   RS232       RS232 is an interface between data terminal equipment and data communications equipment that uses serial binary data interchange. 
   RS422       RS422 is a balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data. It was designed for greater distances and higher Baud rates than RS232. 
   RS485       RS485 is a balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data. The advantage of a balanced signal is a greater immunity to noise. The difference between RS422 and RS485 is that RS485 can be transformed into a multi-point application. 
   RS644 / LVDS       RS644 defines a differential signal, not a specific voltage level. RS644 can use 1 V, 4 V, or 350 mV low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS). 
   Parallel       Parallel channels can transfer more than one bit simultaneously. They connect to a computer through a parallel port.

Centronics connectors are standard parallel interface devices for connecting printers and other peripherals such as portable disc drives, tape backup drives, and CD-ROM players to computers. 
   Ethernet       Ethernet is a local area network (LAN) protocol that uses a bus or star typology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification is the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. To handle simultaneous demands, Ethernet uses carrier sense multiple access/collision detection (CSMA/CD) to monitor network traffic. This includes Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. 
   IEEE 1394 (FireWire®)       IEEE 1394 or FireWire® is an interface standard adopted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for very fast digital data transfers such as streaming video. IEEE 1394 connectors are used to transmit and receive data among FireWire devices, and are designed to replace external high-speed peripheral connections to personal computers, including hard disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, graphics cards, high-speed scanners, direct video, monitors, etc. FireWire is a registered trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.  
   USB       Universal serial bus (USB) is a 4-wire, 12-Mbps serial bus for low-to-medium speed peripheral device connections to personal computers (PC), including keyboards, mice, modems, printers, joysticks, audio functions, monitor controls, etc. The USB design is standardized by the USB Implementers Forum (USBIF), an organization that includes leading companies from the computer and electronics industries. The current USB specification is USB 2.0, which supports data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps. 
   Wireless       Outputs are radio or wireless transmissions.

Performance Features
   Progressive Scan       Progressive scan is a CCD design that allows acquisition of both even and odd fields at the same time. Each pixel contains information from one complete frame. This technology allows high resolution without the use of a mechanical shutter.  Progressive scan cameras are used for image acquisition of rapidly moving objects and accurate dimensional measurements. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Gamma Correction       Gamma is the nonlinear relationship between the video signal level and the subsequent image element brightness. Gamma correction compensates for this nonlinearity in order to render the image true in color while providing intensity to the original object. For the purposes of this search form, cameras that can turn Gamma correction on and off are considered to include this feature. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Gain Control       Automatic gain control (AGC) uses electronic circuitry to increase video signals in low-light conditions. This can introduce noise and subsequently, graininess in the picture. Typically, AGC is disabled and specifications are presented with this feature turned off. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Auto-Lens       Auto-lens operation is a mode in which the lens iris automatically adjusts to maintain a predetermined level of light on the image pickup device. Cameras with auto-lens mode may also provide automatic lens focusing. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Cooled Sensor       Sensors are actively cooled by a Peltier element or other method. Cooling reduces “dark current” noise. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Anti-blooming       Saturation occurs when the light that is sensed exceeds a pixel's capacity to emit electrons. Excessive charge can bleed into adjacent pixels and cause bright spots or streaks to appear on the image, a condition known as blooming. Anti-blooming gates remove excessive charge and can significantly reduce blooming, but often at the cost of reduced sensitivity.

Lens Mount
   Lens Mount       
   Your choices are...         
   C-Mount       C-mount lenses have a flange-back distance of 17.5 mm and are required for C-mount cameras. By comparison, CS-mount lenses have a flange-back distance of 12.5 mm.
