The FXO is the latest camera series from SVS-Vistek. The focus is on a high-end camera series in C-mount format with the latest sensor and interface technology. The FXO series starts with the new Sony Pregius Gen 4 sensors IMX540, IMX541 and IMX542.
These new Sony Pregius Gen 4 sensors have a small pixel size of 2.74 µm and are very light-sensitive thanks to the new "backside illuminated" technology. They show the best dynamic range around 70 dB and outstanding homogeneity. In addition, thanks to the new design, they have an extended acceptance angle and thus reduce sensor-based shading effects, especially with short focal lengths. The small sensor size also enables cheaper lenses.
The FXO series offers CoaXPress-12 or 10GigE as an interface. Both interfaces allow the maximum frame rates of the sensors. 10GigE is a very economic type of interface, CoaXPress shines with its deterministic timing, high upload rates and thus with a jitter-free software shutter.
The SNFC-compliant traffic shaper allows you to limit the interface bandwidth with the 10GigE interface for use with 10GigE switches.
Powerful feature set
Of course, the FXO series has the flexible I/O concept from SVS-Vistek with a built-in 4-channel strobe controller. The FXO comes with a powerful feature set, for example ROI and binning. A separated sensor and camera bit depth readout has been added. As the Pregius Gen 4 sensors support 8 and 12 bit readout, the camera is supporting internal 12 bit sensor readout with 12 bit camera processing (e.g. lookup tables, shading control) and 8 bit camera readout. Obviously, 8 bit sensor readout is supported as well.
