LC-17 20M/IMX183(C) 1“ (15.86mm)

USB3.0 CMOS Digital Camera (HISPVP)

LC-17 20M/IMX183(C) 1“ (15.86mm) USB3.0 CMOS Digital Camera (HISPVP) adopt SONY Exmor CMOS sensor as the image-picking device and USB3.0 is used as the transfer interface.

LC-17 20M/IMX183(C) 1“ (15.86mm) USB3.0 CMOS Digital Camera (HISPVP) hardware resolution of 20M and come with the integrated CNC aluminum alloy compact housing.

LC-17 20M/IMX183(C) 1“ (15.86mm) USB3.0 CMOS Digital Camera (HISPVP) integrated with 12 bit Ultra-fineTM Hardware Image Signal Processor Video Pipline(Ultra-fineTM HISPVP) for Demosaic, Adjustments, Automatic Exposition, Gain Adjustment, One Push White Balance, Chrominance Adjustment, Saturation Adjustment, Gamma Correction, Luminance Adjustment, Contrast Adjustment, Bayer and finally form RAW data for 8/12 bit out. This will move the heavy burden of the processing from the PC to the Ultra-fineTM HISPVP and greatly accelerating the processing speed.
