Grandmaster Flash: Halil Öztürk
What is said to be the first 30x zoom camera module with a global shutter sensor is being displayed on Tamron Europe’s stand. Global shutters remove (or minimise) the blur associated with rolling shutters capturing fast-moving objects such as vehicles (as also illustrated on Tamron’s stand).
Designated the MP2030M-GS, the module uses a 32mm (1.125inch) 3.2 megapixel Sony global shutter sensor with a digital (LVDS) output or a composite output in the CVBS format. The remotely activated zoom lens ranges in focal length from 6mm (60° angle of view) to 180mm (2.5°) and can be automatically or manually focussed.
At 60fps the picture output can be either 1920x1080 or 1280x720 and electronic image stabilisation, defog features and a wide dynamic range make the unit well suited to outdoor applications. Synchronisation with external triggers (loops, radar or visual) can be configured using the random trigger mode.
