Point Grey has unveiled the worlds first USB 3.0 web camera, which is capable of capturing full HD video in 1080P at 60 frames per second.
The web camera features a 3 megapixel Sony CMOS sensor, that can capture video in a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution (1080p).
“One of the potential benefits of the increased bandwidth of USB 3.0 is that it allows the main processor to handle compression,” explained Point Grey spokesperson Vlad Tucakov. “This means that different types of compression can be used for different applications and that some applications, like face recognition, can work on uncompressed video data for increased performance. We certainly see USB 3.0 as a key interface technology for machine and computer vision, and one we plan to integrate into future Point Grey imaging products.”
