Basler launch a new IP camera, the BIP2-1920-30c, equipped with Sony’s outstanding IMX174 sensor, whose strengths align perfectly with the needs of ITS applications.

Offering Full HD resolution and modern global shutter technology, the latest Basler network camera includes a real time trigger for compressed and uncompressed images (YUV). These individual images can be created parallel to a video stream, laying the groundwork for additional tasks such as ANPR to be performed alongside routine traffic monitoring.

Sony’s new IMX174 sensor delivers outstanding traffic images

The Sony IMX174 CMOS sensor is currently among the top sensors in the market place. It offers excellent image quality  with noise behaviour rarely achieved even among CCD sensors. The outstanding sensitivity on the Sony IMX174 promotes a broad dynamic range previously unseen in traffic monitoring cameras. A broad dynamic range is crucial for accurate capture of both very dark and light areas of the image, a common factor in traffic applications with illuminated license plates and the dark passenger all in one image. This is a real advantage in challenging light conditions.

Unlike traditional IP cameras offering dynamic ranges that usually require multiple exposures, the IMX174 inside the BIP2-1920-30c ensures that one single exposure is enough. The clear advantage of just one exposure is that there is no motion blur.
