GC780/GC780C New Low Cost Gigabit Ethernet Camera 64 fps from Prosilica
9 March 2009
Prosilica further expands its wide range of industry-leading GigE Vision camera with the release of the GC780 wide VGA ˝” CCD camera. The GC780 is an ultra-compact, economically priced, machine vision camera with Gigabit Ethernet interface (GigE Vision™). The GC780 incorporates the Sony ICX415 CCD sensor and runs 64 frames per second at 782x582 resolution over the GigE Vision-compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface.
The GC780 works with standard gigabit Ethernet hardware and cables and can have cable lengths up to 100 meters (330 ft) long using conventional Cat5e network cabling. Applications for the GC780 include high-speed inspection, machine vision, optical character recognition, traffic imaging, robotics, and OEM applications.
The extensive feature set of the GC780 includes pixel binning, area of interest readout, external trigger and sync I/O, auto-iris control, RS-232 peripheral port, exposure, gain and offset controls, non-volatile configuration memory, event recorder capability, pre-trigger recording, programmable strobe functions, multicasting, configurable IP addresses, autoexposure and autowhite balance controls. With both monochrome and color models, the GC780 is available as C-mount or CS-mount with adjustable back focus. One of the most significant features is its GigE Vision interface that provides networkable, multi-camera, reliable data transport at high data rates over exceptionally long cables.
GigE Vision is a camera interface standard for Gigabit Ethernet-based cameras. Gigabit Ethernet is a mature technology that allows for reliable, high-speed, data transmission over long cables and also provides for networking multiple cameras into high-performance multi-view imaging applications at lower cost and effort that with other camera interface technologies. Prosilica’s GigE Vision engine, believed to be the fastest in the industry, is capable of sustaining 124 Megabytes per second without packet loss. Latency is lower than firewire cameras by a factor of 10, making Prosilica’s GigE Vision cameras suitable for even the most demanding applications.
Prosilica also provides a software development kit that includes the complete source code of Prosilica’s Sample Viewer application. Prosilica’s SDK, available for XP, 2000, Vista, Linux, and QNX operating systems, praised by customers for its simplicity, ease-of-use, and utility, is available free of charge. Prosilica’s GigE Vision cameras are also well supported by industry-leading machine vision software from National Instruments, Matrox, MVTec, Stemmer, Norpix, and others.

Why Buy Prosilica Cameras:
- Prosilica makes the smallest, lightest, highest performance GigE Vision cameras in the world!
- Which each camera Prosilica provided a FREE OF CHARGE Software development kit for control and image capture.
- Third Party Support. Both National Instruments and Matrox Imaging used Prosilica's GigE cameras to develop their GigE Vision drivers. Prosilica's cameras are thus highly compatible with Matrox, National Instruments and many other software vendors.
- Native Prosilica support for Windows XP, Windows 2000, Linux, QNX and Mac OSX. Prosilica has the widest operating system support in the industry.
- The Free Sample viewer provided allows you to quickly get the camera up and running and shows all the camera controls and features. The source code for the Sample Viewer is included in the SDK to help you integrate the camera into your own application.
- Prosilica has one of the largest selections of high-performance digital cameras for machine vision. Ranging from VGA resolution (640x480) to 16- megapixel (4872x3248)
- Prosilica cameras provides independent x, y binning to dramatically increase sensitivity and speed;square binning modes 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, and also rectangular binning modes up to full vertical resolution.
- Prosilica provides DSP subregion controls so that specific portions of the image can be defined in order to control the autoexposure and autowhitebalance features (and ignore the other parts of the image).
- Prosilica Cameras have a feature called StreamHold. This feature allows the camera to retain images in the camera memory indefinitely until they are requested by the host computer.
- Prosilica can provide extra features within the same price range as other manufacturers.
