The See3CAMCU50 supports the M12 lens mount and video streaming at resolutions of up to 1080p at 30fps and full resolution (2592x1944) at 15fps. The UVC compliant camera is plug-and-play in both Windows and Linux. In Windows, the camera is exposed as a DirectShow device and in Linux, as a V4L2 capture source. Customers can choose a lens of their choice.

The See3CAMCU50 is a 5.0MP UVC-compliant USB 3.0 Super Speed camera with the S-mount (M12 board) lens holder. It is based on the ¼” OV5640 CMOS image sensor from Omni Vision. The See3CAMCU50 can stream HD at 60fps (720p at 60fps) and Full-HD at 30fps (1080p at 30fps) in compressed MJPEG mode and uncompressed 720p at 30fps and 1080p at 15fps YUV422 formats, through the USB3.0 interface which supports about 5Gb/s bandwidth.See3CAMCU50 can stream the full 5MP resolution compressed MJPEG video streaming at around 15fps for high resolution imaging applications.

Mr.Ashok Babu, President, e-con System, commented: “We had a number of our customers asking for a higher viewing angle on our flagship product e-CAM51_USB. The viewing angle requirements ranged from 75 to 150 degrees. The See3CAMCU50 allows the customer not only the flexibility to choose a wide-angled lens of their choice but also combines the advantage with the USB 3.0 functionality. The See3CAMCU50 is based on e-con’s own USB UVC Stack, e-con can also offer customised versions of the See3CAMCU50 camera as per customer requirements."

The See3CAMCU50 is available now. Customers interested in evaluating the See3CAMCU50 can order samples from e-con Systems. Customers have the option to buy the See3CAMCU50 with or without the lens.
