See3CAM_81 is based on the 1/3.2-inch OV8865, an 8 MP CMOS image sensor from OmniVision. See3CAM_81 is a successor to e-con Systems’ 8MP autofocus USB 3.0 camera, See3CAM_80 based on OV8825.
The See3CAM_81 streams uncompressed video 720p@60fps (HD), 1080p@30fps (cropped) and 8 MP@ 11 fps in YUY2 formats over USB 3.0 interface. See3CAM_81 features an image signal processor (ISP) that provides high and low-light images, making this camera ideal for customers designing kiosk, multimedia applications, high resolution OCR, barcode scanning applications and medical and scientific applications such as tissue vision, pathology examination and microscopic applications.
See3CAM_81 is based on 1/3.2” OV8865 Image sensor with an on-board Image Signal Processor chip (ISP) that performs all the Auto functions (Auto White Balance, Auto Exposure control) in addition to complete Image Signal Processing functions.
The See3CAM_81 camera, measuring 65mm x 16mm, contains the USB 3.0 micro-B connector, an indication LED and the 10-pin GPIO header for standard and custom operations.
See3CAM_81, a UVC-compliant camera is plug-and-play in both Windows and Linux without requiring additional drivers. In Windows, the camera is exposed as a DirectShow device, and in Linux as a V4L2 capture source. e-con Systems’ sample e-CAMView - Windows applications and QtCAM - exposure, ROI based Auto exposure and White Balance (Manual and Auto).
