SV10C6 Kit


10 Megapixel Cameras

Camera Sensor Features

  • 10 megapixel monochrome or color camera
  • 3840 × 2764 resolution (more than 5 times HD resolution) at up to 6.2 fps.
  • Reduced resolutions provide faster frame rates.
  • Up to 12 bits (4096 intensity levels) per pixel or color.
  • Capture & Save scientific quality uncompressed images or sequences.
  • Windowing reduces resolution to an area of interest and gives a faster frame rate.
  • Mirroring changes image read out order to flip the image.
  • Column Skip and Row Skip reduce resolution without reducing area of interest.
  • Electronic Rolling Shutter (ERS) mode provides maximum frame rates.
  • Global Reset Release provides simultaneous reset of all pixels followed by exposure and read out.  For use with a strobe or mechanical shutter.
  • Asynchronous Capture with Strobe Out.

Sequence Capture with SV10C6 & SV10M6 Cameras and XCAP Imaging Program Versions


SILICON VIDEO® SV10C6 and SV10M6 cameras will capture continuously, at various resolutions and frame rates, as shown in the chart below.

XCAP-Lite will capture for 0.97 seconds at 3840 × 2764 resolution, 8 bits per pixel, 6.2 fps. Images must be saved individually. XCAP-Lite is included with the PIXCI SI series frame grabbers.

The XCAP-Ltd program captures and saves sequences for 2 minutes into 8 GBytes of available memory (computer must have approximately 12 GBytes of installed memory). XCAP-Ltd is $495.

The XCAP-Std imaging program offers video to disk capture, which can allow continuous capture for hours depending on the capacity of the computer’s storage system. XCAP-Std is $1495.

Select which version of the XCAP program is best for your application by reviewing the description on the XCAP product page.

Video-To-Disk Capture

The optional XCAP-Std imaging program enables video-to-disk capture. Requires a host computer with storage system capable of handling desired image capture rates and duration. EPIX® offers complete imaging systems, designed to your specifications, guaranteed to capture uncompressed video to disk without dropping frames.
