3 Steps to future proof long-range observation systems – The move from SD to HD and from analog to digital

Long-range observation and designator systems have been installed on permanent and mobile platforms to provide 24-hour surveillance and early warning detection. Although more imaging devices have been added to the platforms there is now a move towards higher accuracy, increased image quality, networked video distribution and multipurpose use (extension of capabilities) at identical or lower…

CoaXPress no longer just a cool concept – enabling throughput increases in machine vision

Until recently CoaXPress was considered just a nice possibility by system designers and integrators.  It seemed to offer advantages in speed with long, flexible, inexpensive cables, but many systems were not ready for the change since a brand new standard is intimidating.  CoaXPress has matured rapidly with many new frame grabbers and cameras on the…
