Based on the Sony STARVIS IMX462 sensor, the camera features a GigE interface and PoE capabilities By Mike Ball / 21 Sep 2022

GigE low light HDR embedded camerae-con Systems has launched the RouteCAM_CU20, an OEM HDR GigE ultra-low light camera with network synchronization capability. RouteCAM_CU20 is the first product in the company’s new RouteCAM series and is based on the Sony STARVIS IMX462 sensor featuring high performance for low light and NIR (Near InfraRed) applications.

The camera can be easily integrated with all image processing platforms including X86 processors and ARM processors. The GigE interface ensures reliable transfer of data up to a distance of 100m, and PoE capabilities allow transmitting of power as well as data over a single GigE interface. ONVIF protocol support allows developers to easily integrate this camera with any ONVIF-based system.

Key features of the RouteCAM_CU20 include:

  • Network synchronization for multi-camera streaming
  • Can be customized, including optics, form factor etc., to meet customers’ unique requirements
  • Based on the Sony STARVIS IMX462 – HDR, NIR and ultra-low light capabilities
  • PoE ensures power supply for the camera through data cable
  • GigE interface ensures reliable connection for transfer of video data up to a distance of 100m
  • H.264/H.265 encoding – high-quality video transmission with minimal bandwidth

RanjithKumar, e-con Systems’ BU Head-Retail, commented: “e-con Systems, being a pioneer of GMSL, MIPI and USB cameras, has now forayed into Gigabit Ethernet cameras with the new RouteCAM series. We see a high demand for OEM cameras with reliable connection and long-distance support, and at the same time customers want to use the existing infrastructure to lower their product development cost. To address these needs, we have now launched RouteCAM_CU20, an HDR camera based on the Sony STARVIS sensor. With these features, we aim to serve various markets with applications such as autonomous mobile robots, smart farming, autonomous shopping and telepresence robots.”
