The following table provides technical specifications and performance indicators for the V8 camera. Superscripted numbers indicate additional information provided in the Table notes.

Component

Specification

Performance

Maximum frame rate (fps) at full resolution

260Increased frame rates: Selecting a frame rate greater than full resolution automatically reduces image size by windowing. This keeps the pixel rate the same by transmitting a greater number of smaller images per second. You specify the capture frame rate of the Vantage cameras in the Vicon application software. Vantage cameras are capable of capturing up to a maximum of 2,000 fps, but the actual frame rate you can specify depends on the Vicon application software you are using. For details, see your Vicon software documentation. Above 120 fps the amount of light emitted per frame is linearly reduced. The light emitted per frame at 240 fps is half that output per frame at 120 fps. (The total strobed light output remains the same).

Maximum frame rate (fps) at partial scan

Sensor

Sensor type

CMOS

Sensor resolution (pixels)

3328 H x 2432 V

Number of pixels

8,067,072

Pixel size

4.5 microns x 4.5 microns

Physical sensor size (mm)

14.8 mm (H) x 10.9 mm (V), 18.38 mm (Diagonal)

Optical format

1"

Shutter type

Global shutterShuttering: The global shutter overcomes the negative effects of using rolling shutters for motion capture.

Aspect ratio

1:1

On camera processing


256 shades and grayscale processing

YesFull marker grayscale: Marker centers are calculated based on every pixel of grayscale available for the marker, not just the detected marker edges. An on-camera circularity test ensures merged or partially occluded markers which need high-level processing are sent in full grayscale to the Vicon Vantage host PC.

Grayscale depth

8-bit

Sub pixel resolution

851,968 x 620,544 (1/256 pixel resolution)

On-board processors

3 processors

On-camera masking

YesOn-camera masking: This removes areas of the sensor where undesirable static light sources are recorded, for example strobes from other cameras.

In-camera dynamic large blob eliminator

YesBlob elimination: Camera firmware automatically removes undesirable image data including both large blobs (e.g. sunlight reflections) and/or an unusually large number of blobs.

Software masking

Yes

Auto masking

Yes

On-camera thresholding

Yes

Threshold grid size (tiles)

208 x 152

Threshold grid tile dimensions (pixels)

16 x 16

Camera output modes

5Output modes: Automatic (centers for circular markers, grayscale for overlapping/partially occluded markers), Centers Only, Grayscale Only, Centers/Grayscale, and Preview (the entire sensor image).

Full frame preview output

YesPreview mode: The full image is lightly filtered, decimated and transmitted to the Vantage host at 30 fps. This reduces the quantity of preview video data to a level that can be transmitted over Gigabit Ethernet to the Vicon Vantage host PC. Only one camera at a time is allowed to be sent in Preview mode as it requires most of the system bandwidth to transmit this one signal.

Software and firmware upgradable

Yes

Upgrade methods

Through the Vicon application software. Firmware files can be placed on the Vicon Vantage host PC using any standard transmission method (e.g. FTP, e-mail, CD, USB stick). The files are then uploaded from the Vicon Vantage host PC to the Vantage system hardware through the Reprogram Firmware option in the software.
