8K Camera From XIMEA With 48 Mpix Now Released

The well-known line called xiB already offers 4K and 5K models with 12 and 20 Mpix resolution and fast speed. Now new CMV50000 sensors from CMOSIS (AMS) are included in this camera family. The initial low stock is ready for orders with higher stock volume planned towards the end of the 2017 and mass production beginning of 2018.

The latest model, called CB500, is equipped with high grade 35mm, full frame, global shutter CMOS sensor with 7920 x 6004 pixels resolution and ability to provide 8, 10, 12 or 14-bit crystal clear images. With the help of PCI Express, referred to also as PCIe, this 48 Mpix sensor is able to reach the remarkable speed of over 30 Fps at full resolution.

The camera's data and control interface is fully compliant with PCI Express External Cabling Specifications, which allows 20 Gbit/s and real data throughput of 1550 MB/s. This additionally means distance reach of up to 300m using Fiber optics and streaming of data directly to PC memory without the need of expensive frame grabbers or special, complicated software.

The camera package itself is remarkably compact with 60 x 60 x 38 mm and 175g. Its power consumption, reduced by design and components, can be as low as 9 Watt. The further enhancement comes from integrated active lens interface compatible with Canon EF-mount lenses which allows remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization.

Applications examples include: Flat panel inspection, printed circuit board (PCB) examination, persistent stadium and border security, wide area surveillance, 360 panorama, cinematography, instant replays, Virtual and Augmented reality (VR, AR), Sports imaging and broadcasting, motion capture and aerial or city mapping.
