Ultra-Low Light Camera Series MV1-R1280

With the camera series MV1-R1280 Photonfocus develops the market of ultra-low light applications. In this region the read out noise of the sensors determine the performance of the cameras. Successive developments of the CMOS technologies and the circuit technology allow CMOS image sensors to expand into ultra-low light applications. The CMOS image sensor R1280 utilise an innovative method of exposure and an optimized analogue-to-digital conversion to reduce the read out noise under 1e-.
The MV1-R1280 cameras have a linear response curve and a dynamic range of 82dB. At full resolution of 1280x1024 pixels the frame rate is 30fps. The camera series in MV1 form factor is implemented with CameraLink interface MV1-R1280-50-CL and with GigE interface MV1-R1280-50-G2.

Photonfocus Homepage Improvements

The new frame rate calculator is online. As in the version before you can reach the calculator in the support area. In addition we implemented direct links from the products to the frame rate calculator. Calling the calculator from a product page configures the calculator with the specific data of the selected product.
The direct product comparison is often very time-consuming. To enable an effective comparison of Photonfocus products you can mark now in the camera finder up to four products for a direct comparison on a separate list. We standardized the product features to enable a quick one by one comparison of the products.
