Highlights
PixeLINK™ PL-A661 and PL-A662 Cameras offer high-resolution
megapixel capability with the convenience of FireWire (IEEE 1394) to
capture low latency video streams and digital still images. Available in a
Camera Kit for operation "out of the box," and a Developer’s Kit that
includes all of the software and hardware necessary for customized
application development. The PL-A661 and PL-A662 are encased in a
rugged yet lightweight magnesium housing.

General Description
The PL-A661 and PL-A662 Cameras use the FireWire (IEEE 1394)
digital bus protocol to streamline the capture, digitization and
processing of megapixel video streams. These Cameras are
designed to simplify real-time uncompressed video streaming
and digital still image acquisition while maintaining
uncompromising video and digital still-image quality.
One FireWire cable can manage power distribution, PC-based
control and real-time video streaming capabilities of the Camera.
The Developer’s Kit offers an extensive Application Program
Interface (API). This API is designed to simplify the most
common tasks associated with configuring and controlling the
Camera.
Software developers can easily adapt existing
programs or develop new imaging applications quickly.
The PL-A661 and PL-A662 are compatible with Windows®
98 SE, Windows® 2000 and Windows® XP.
