SRI International today unveiled a compact video stabilization interface board for Sony’s popular line of FCB-EX and FCB-EX-E series standard definition block cameras. The ILS-5000-SD™ embedded stabilizer enhances video quality for camera modules that are widely used in law enforcement, surveillance, intelligent traffic systems, border protection, robotics, and unmanned vehicles.

The ILS-5000-SD improves the clarity of video by counteracting the effects of camera shake and vibration. Camera motion caused by moving vehicles or platforms and long-range zoom can make video images hard to interpret, trigger false alarms, reduce storage capacity, and decrease available transmission bandwidth.  At a price less than the typical block camera, the ILS-5000-SD corrects for unwanted vertical, horizontal, and rotational motion across a wide range of shake frequencies. It also improves overall camera system performance.

“SRI stabilization technology is already being used in high-end military and surveillance applications,” said Mark Clifton , vice president, SRI Products and Services division. “The ILS-5000-SD now brings this powerful capability to a far broader range of industries and applications.”

Designed for easy integration, the ILS-5000-SD stabilizer supports Sony’s VISCA® camera control protocol, providing a seamless interface for both video and stabilization control. It also matches the profile of Sony block cameras, making the module ideal for new and existing systems.
