See3CAM_CU81 - 4K HDR USB Camera

See3CAM_CU81 is an 4K, HDR, USB 3.1 Gen 1 camera. This 8MP USB camera is based on AR0821 CMOS color image sensor from ON Semiconductor®. It has a high-performance built-in Image Signal Processor (ISP) which is fine-tuned to achieve the best image output from the sensor. HDR capability of this camera helps to produce exceptionally clear, sharp and low noise images even in challenging lighting conditions. This fixed focus camera has an easily interchangeable M12 lens.

It is a UVC compliant USB 3.1 Gen 1 camera that is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 host ports. This plug-and-play camera allows the transmission of both uncompressed and compressed video data reliably. It provides throughputs capable of streaming MJPEG video data of 1080p @ 60fps and UYVY video data of 1080p @ 60fps. Read More »
