SV5C10 Kit


5 Megapixel Capture at 10 fps with Exceptional Image Quality

Camera Sensor Features

  • 5 megapixel color camera
  • 2592 × 1944 resolution at up to 10.2 fps
  • Reduced resolutions provide faster frame rates
  • Up to 12 bits (4096 intensity levels) per 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

Capture & Adjust Dialogs


The XCAP Imaging Program simplifies camera operation with a dedicated Capture & Adjust Dialog. The Capture & Adjust Dialog provides one convenient location for camera controls such as exposure, resolution, triggering, color balance and frame rate. In addition, the SV5C10 Dialog provides a camera-to-computer communication indicator, a programmable pixel clock, and exposure synchronized to AC power frequencies.

The Color & White Balance menu offers simple color balance settings for common sunlight, fluorescent light, and incandescent light conditions. In addition, for greater color precision, or for unusual light sources, XCAP offers advanced options for building custom color settings.

The camera's pixel clock frequency is user-selectable over a range of 25 MHz to 70 MHz. The programmable pixel clock provides a wider range of frame rates and exposure times.

The intensity of AC lighting fluctuates with the phase of the AC voltage that powers it. Capturing sequences of images using arbitrary frame rates with AC lighting will result in images with differing brightness. The SV5C10 Capture & Adjust Dialog offers a convenient fix for this problem — exposure times can be easily set to multiples of the local AC line frequency, either 1/50th or 1/60th second. Synchronizing exposure times to the line voltage provides images with consistent illumination from a varying-intensity AC light source.

The presence or absence of the 2 lines between the camera and computer icons indicate whether or not the computer and camera are properly connected and capable of communicating.

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.
