Basler introduces two new camera familiesBasler Scout and Basler Pioneer. The cameras feature GbE and FireWire-b interfaces, and are equipped with CCD sensors ranging in size from VGA to 2Mpixels. The Scout family is based on a selection of Sony CCD sensors and offers a variety of resolutions and speeds. Pricing and product quality will make the full range of advantages offered by digital cameras available to current analogue camera users and will hasten the conversion from analog to digital cameras. Equipped with a GbE interface, these cameras take maximum advantage of the Kodak sensor technology and can often substitute for more cost-intensive Camera Link cameras.

For more flexibility, this series offers additional software features that can be integrated into the image processing software on a remote computer. Both camera families will feature a GenICam compliant API and will use new drivers. The FireWire-b cameras will also be compatible with Basler's existing BCAM driver and API for FireWire cameras. Along with the drivers, GUI-based software will be provided that lets users easily set camera parameters, adjust image quality and control cameras from a remote computer.

These camera families will be compatible with all common software libraries. The cameras are designed for all machine vision and medical applications, as well as for use in intelligent traffic systems.
