Point Grey Launches High-Speed Gazelle Camera Series with CMOSIS 2 and 4 MP Sensors

“The sensitivity and high-speed imaging performance of the CMOSIS CMV2000 and CMV4000 make these truly exceptional sensors,” says Vladimir Tucakov, Director of Sales and Marketing at Point Grey. “Integrating them into the extremely compact Grasshopper form factor and pairing them with Camera Link—still the bandwidth king at 680 MByte/s—allows us to bring a very unique product with unbeatable value to the market.”

The Gazelle is equipped with an industry-standard C-mount lens holder, removable optical window, two (2) SDR connectors with screw locks, on-board temperature and power sensors, and status LED. Every Gazelle comes with an ASA/ISO-compliant tripod mounting bracket at no extra cost. Additional features include 8- and 10-bit image modes, row windowing with support for up to 8 separate ROIs, the ability to install new firmware versions in the field, reverse imaging (X-Y mirroring), and embedded image information.  Using a command set developed by Point Grey in conjunction with external frame grabber software, users can control camera operation and configure properties such as gain, exposure, and black level.

The GZL-CL-22C5M-C (2/3-inch 2048×1088 at 280 FPS), list priced at USD $1,695 and the GZL-CL-41C6M-C (1-inch 2048×2048 at 150 FPS), list priced at USD $2,545, are available to order now from Point Grey and its network of distributors.
