Smart cameras with on board DSP - Standard series (VCxx)

Largely obsolete range of models: pls see the new 1GHz models!

Image sensor, grabber, DSP processor, video putput, I/Os, RS232 are all include within a small camera!

Please note: more recent (more powerful and less expensive) models belong to the C6 family (3200-8000MIPS DSP, up to 250 frames/sec). Models listed below are older and probably not the best choice for a new design anymore. New user: C6 family is much better!

How much do they cost?? $$$!

Available versions:

Several models are available from lower cost to higher speed. If you need real high speed, refer to the C6 family at 1200MIPS and 113 frames/sec.

A convenent summary of all models with costs and main features (memory, CPU speed etc.) is  >>HERE<<

Select by feature: select the most suitable model according to your requirements (by resolution, by speed etc.)


Use our 220VAC adaptor to provide the required DC power (10-18VDC or 24VDC) (also available DIN rail version).

All cables (power, I/O's, video, RS232) are available ready-made in standard lengths (5, 10, 25m) or custom cut (see price list).

In order to provide a handy user interface device, with no need of more complex devices, a simple keypad can be connected and powered by the camera itself. You'll thus be able to implement menu driven setup, ROI selection and the like with a simple, cost effective device.
