See3CAM_CU81 - AR0821 4K HDR USB Camera with 1/2" sensor

See3CAM_CU81 is a 4K, HDR, USB 3.1 Gen 1 camera. This 8MP USB camera is based on the AR0821 CMOS color image sensor from ON Semiconductor®. AR0821, a 1/2 inch sensor with a large pixel size is capable of capturing 4K images with great details in all lighting conditions. See3CAM_CU81 is a 4K camera that comes with the HDR capability which helps to produce exceptionally clear and sharp images in challenging lighting conditions. It has a high-performance built-in Image Signal Processor that comes with auto exposure and auto white balance functions, which provides the best possible image output from the sensor. This 4K HDR camera also has a high Signal to Noise Ratio, which helps to capture images with less noise in low lighting conditions.

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. Also, this fixed focus camera comes with an interchangeable M12 lens. Read More »
