Pixelink introduces PL-D757 and PL-D753 USB 3.0 cameras

November 5, 2018 – Pixelink, a provider of industrial cameras for the machine vision and microscopy markets, announced the release of two USB 3.0 cameras using Sony’s 3rd generation Pregius CMOS global shutter sensors. The Pixelink PL-D757, based on Sony IMX420, and PL-D753, based on IMX421, are designed for high dynamic range (HDR) imaging applications requiring both high resolution images and frame rates.

HDR imaging renders a captured image with a dynamic range of luminosity. A feature of the 3rd generation Sony Pregius CMOS global shutter sensors is a Dual ADC mode where each pixel can be read out with two different gains. The PL-D757 and PL-D753 take advantage of this sensor feature by combining the dual ADC images into a single hybrid HDR image directly on camera, thus removing the need for any host processing. The combination of a low gain image used for bright areas of a scene, along with a high gain image used for dark areas of a scene, allow details to be discerned in both the bright and dark areas of an image.

The PL-D757 is a 7.1MP camera with a 1.1” sensor size capable of 60 frames per second at a resolution of 3208 x 2200.  The PL-D753 is a 2.8MP camera with a 2/3” sensor size and 143 frames per second at a resolution of 1936 x 1464. Both cameras have a 4.5 µm pixel size and are available in color and monochrome versions.

The two HDR imaging cameras, along with Navitar 4K HDR lenses, will be on display in the Navitar/Pixelink stand (1H-38) at the VISION show in Stuttgart, Germany next week. As with all Pixelink cameras, these models are also compatible with Pixelink Capture, a free, real-time, interactive, multi-camera software application.
