M ODEL 8200
The Model 8200 High Definition Standalone Miniature Automatic Video Tracker belongs to the latest tracker product family in E-O Imaging's
continued commitment to product innovation and improvement. This board is designed to allow
complete interface customization to our customer's required applications. This is accomplished
through the incorporation of the latest in digital signal processing (DSP) and field
programmable gate array (FPGA) technology (providing a flexible architecture for
customization). The Series 8000 Trackers can be interfaced with both analog and
digital video sources, providing ease in interfacing with a wide variety of sensor
systems. The analog video interface provides full 10-bit, 1024 gray level capability
supporting both NTSC and PAL video formats. The Model 8200 miniature tracker is
designed to meet the demands of the surveillance and UAV markets for a low cost, high
performance video tracker. Designed for standalone operation, the tracker operates from a
single DC power supply accepting a wide input range from 6 to 28 volts. The system is structured with
an open architecture allowing easy incorporation of specialized features and algorithms. The Model 8200's
standard features and options permit easy adaptation to even the most complex and demanding surveillance and UAV applications.
The Model 8201 tracker provides the same performance with a dual target capability.
