The SILICON VIDEO SV9M001C COLOR camera has been discontinued. EPIX, Inc. cannot accept any new orders for this product. The SV9M001C 1280 x 1024 COLOR camera required the MT9M001 color sensor from Micron. This sensor was discontinued 2 years ago. Recent attempts to find defect-free sensors have failed. We have no choice but to discontinue production.
Affected Order Codes:
This discontinuation notice does not apply to the SV9M001M monochrome camera.
Aptina still manufactures the monochrome version of this sensor. EPIX has the SV9M001M monochrome camera in stock.

Both the SV9T001C and the SV5C10 cameras are only $1095.00 list price – the same price as the discontinued SV9M001C.
