The SILICON VIDEO® WGAC (color) and WGAM (monochrome)
cameras provide up to 752 pixel by 480 line images with up to 10
bits of grey scale per pixel in a progressive scan format at frame
rates from 60 frames per second or up to 1338 frames per
second at reduced resolution. The area of interest and pixel clock
are programmable to allow tradeoffs in image size and image
quality against frame rate. The camera has a global shutter for
exposures as short as 27 microseconds. The camera can be
programmed for linear or companded modes of operation. Linear
mode provides precise intensity and color control which provides
better image quality. Companded mode, combined with automatic
gain and automatic exposure, allows the camera to automatically
respond to changing image illumination. Our software provides
control of all camera operations.
Asynchronous Capture with Strobe Output
The SVWGAC and SVWGAM cameras offer asynchronous
capture to acquire an image (or images) in response to a trigger
signal. The cameras have a strobe output signal to synchronize
an LED strobe.
One RJ45 Cable and 4 Frame Grabbers
A single RJ45 cable connects the camera head to a PIXCI® frame
grabber. It provides power to the camera, carries camera
controls, carries the programmable pixel clock, and carries video.
No separate power supply or power cable required. The SVWGA
cameras are supported by 4 different PIXCI® SI series frame
grabbers allowing use on either the PCI or PCIe bus. The PIXCI®
SI supports one camera in a 32 bit PCI slot. The PIXCI® SI1 and
SI2 frame grabbers support one or two cameras in a PCIe x1 slot.
The PIXCI® SI4 supports 4 cameras on a PCIe x4 or wider slot.
Camera Controls
The XCAP-Lite sofware included with a PIXCI® frame grabber has
a Capture & Adjust Dialog for selecting capture mode, ADC,
AGC, and AEC control, pixel clock frequency, integration/exposure time, capture resolution, trigger control, slope selection and
more. The SVWGAC color camera dialog provides automatic
white balance, manual adjustment of Red, Green, and Blue gain,
and extensive color balance controls.
Lens Optional
Add a 1/3" format C-Mount lens, programmer libraries, image
processing, or video to disk and image analysis software, or
request a complete computer system. EPIX, Inc. assembles
imaging systems, built to your specifications, with cameras, frame
grabbers, high-performance motherboards, and RAID arrays for
video to disk capture.
SVWGA Global Shutter / High Dynamic Range Cameras
Sequence Capture with SVWGA Camera
and XCAP Imaging Program Versions
A SILICON VIDEO® WGA camera will capture continuously, at various resolutions and
frame rates, as shown in the chart to the right.
XCAP-Lite will capture for almost 3 seconds at 752 x 480 resolution, 8 bits per pixel, 60 fps.
Images must be saved individually. XCAP-Lite is included with the PIXCI® SI series frame
The XCAP-Ltd program captures and saves sequences for more than 6 minutes into 8
GBytes of available memory (computer must have approximately 12 GBytes of installed
memory). XCAP-Ltd is $495.
The XCAP-Std imaging program offers video to disk capture, which can allow continous
capture for hours depending on the capacity of the computer’s storage system.
XCAP-Std is $1495. Select which version of the XCAP program is best for your application
