SurveilsQUAD - Sony IMX290 Synchronized Multi-Camera System

SurveilsQUAD (e-CAM20_CUXVR) is a synchronized multiple camera solution for NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ Developer Kit that consists of four 2MP camera board and a base board to interface with the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ Developer Kit. Each camera is based on the camera module e-CAM21_CUMI290_MOD, a SONY® Starvis IMX290 color CMOS image sensor. This camera uses NVIDIA® on-board Jetson AGX Xavier™ Image Signal Processor (ISP) to perform all the Auto functions (Auto White Balance, Auto Exposure control) and significantly, improved image quality. It has S-mount (M12) lens holder which allows customers to choose and use the lens according to their requirement.
