General Specifications
   Monochrome / Color       
   Your choices are...         
   Monochrome       Monochrome devices present images in black and white or grayscale. 
   Color       Color devices present images in a range of colors, typically by combining discrete colors. For example, combining an image's red, green, and blue (RGB) components creates a wide spectrum of colors. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Imaging Technology / Camera Type       
   Your choices are...         
   CCD       Charge coupled devices (CCDs) are light-sensitive silicon chips that detect electrons excited by incoming light. They contain micro circuitry that transfers a detected signal along a row of discrete picture elements or pixels, scanning the image very rapidly. CCD cameras use two-dimensional CCD arrays with many thousands of pixels. 
   CMOS       Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors operate at lower voltages than charged coupled devices (CCDs), reducing power consumption for portable applications. Analog and digital processing functions can be integrated readily onto a CMOS chip, reducing system package size and overall cost. With CMOS, each active pixel sensor cell has its own buffer amplifier and can be addressed and read individually.  Commonly used cells have four transistors and a photo sensing element. Each cell has a transfer gate that separates the photo sensor from a capacitive floating diffusion and a reset gate between the floating diffusion and the power supply. Each cell also has a source-follower transistor to buffer the floating diffusion from readout-line capacitance, and a row-select gate to connect the cell to the readout line. All of the pixels in a column connect to a common sense-amplifier. 
   CID       Charge injection devices (CIDs) are photosensitive image sensors that are often implemented with large-scale integration technologies. CIDs can be randomly addressed, read non-destructively, and sub-scanned in a small region. CIDs are also less susceptible to charge overflows from bright pixels. To capture incident light, the pixel structure is contiguous with the maximum surface. This technique is also useful for sub-pixel measurements. 
   Film       Images are exposed onto a photosensitive film that is developed. The shutter, a manual door that admits light to the film, typically controls exposure. 
   UV       The camera uses ultraviolet technology (UV). 
   Smart Camera       Smart cameras or intelligent cameras are complete vision systems that consist of a video camera, image sensors, memory, and communication interfaces. They are stand-alone systems. 
   Other       Other unlisted imaging technologies.

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.    
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   High Definition       High-definition is a video standard that has higher picture sharpness, larger picture, more colors, and higher quality sound than regular video standards.
