February 26, 2016 - e-con Systems announces See3CAM_CU30, an ultra-low light USB camera that captures images in near darkness.
e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded camera solution company, today announced the launch of See3CAM_CU30, an ultra-low light camera with a USB 3.0 interface. See3CAM_CU30 is based on the 1/3-inch AR0330, a 3.4 megapixel image sensor from OnSemi. This OEM camera can capture images at 0.1Lux, ideal for low light surveillance applications.
The See3CAM_CU30 streams video at 60 frames per second (FPS) in 720p high definition (HD) and 1080p Full HD at 60fps in both uncompressed (UYVY) and compressed (MJPEG) formats. In addition to high-end digital video performance, the See3CAM_CU30 makes it possible to capture a 3.4MP still image due to its unique multi-aspect ratio format. At its full resolution of 3.4 megapixels (2304x1536), the See3CAM_CU30 can stream at 30fps over USB3.0 in MJPEG format and 25fps in UYVY format. On the optic side, See3CAM_CU30 features the S-mount (M12) lens holder, allowing customers to use lenses, based on their application requirements.

See3CAM_CU30 has an on-board high-performance 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 and MJPEG encoding. This 2.2micron pixel size AR0330 sensor with the ISP provides image quality and superior low light performance. The AR0330 sensor has very good responsivity in Near Infra-red wavelengths and that allows the See3CAM_CU30 camera to be used in NIR imaging applications and day-night applications.
