AVT Pike

AVT-Pike-side-riThe Pike is a fast IEEE 1394b camera for demanding applications (e.g. industrial and medical imaging). Numerous pre-processing functions produce an outstanding image quality. Pike cameras operate with very high frame rates.

Pike cameras include extraordinary image pre-processing functions like the High SNR mode (up to 24 dB better signal-to-noise ratio).

Pike cameras are available both with two copper ports (for daisy-chaining) and with copper/GOF (glass optical fiber) ports.

  • Sony and Truesense CCD sensors (1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 1, 1.2, 35 mm)
  • 8 models (VGA to 16 Megapixel)
  • Options
    • 1394b connectors: daisy chain copper or copper and GOF
    • Various IR cut/pass filters
    • F/M39-Mount (F-032 only: CS/M12-Mount)
    • Pike F-1100/F-1600: M42/M58-Mount
    • Hirose power: out
    • Angled head
    • White medical housing
    • Sensor variants: Taped cover glass w/o microlenses, fixed quartz cover glass w/o microlenses available for some models

Pike 1394b cameras include a rich variety of image pre-processing functions:

  • Programmable LUT, white balance, hue, saturation
  • Debayering
  • Auto gain, auto exposure
  • Color correction
  • Shading correction
  • High SNR mode (up to 24 dB better signal-to-noise ratio)
  • Smear reduction
  • Sub-sampling, 2x – 8x binning (b/w)
  • Separate AOI for auto features (speed increase possible)
  • Sequence mode (changes the image settings on the fly)
  • Image mirror
  • Deferred image transport
  • SIS (secure image signature, time stamp for trigger, frame count etc.)
  • Storable user settings

Pike cameras are an ideal choice for for all applications which require a fast camera (IEEE 1394b) with very high frame rates and an outstanding image quality.

Their flexible design (AVT modular concept) offers many opportunities for customization. The GOF (glass optical fiber) versions allow for cable lengths of 400 meters or even more – without any additional repeaters.

Pike cameras are especially suited for:

  • Applications which require high frame rates and outstanding image quality
  • OEM applications (modular concept)
  • Sports, motion studies
  • 3D recordings of still and moving objects
  • 3D-scanning
  • Science and research
  • Healthcare, Medical imaging
  • Multimedia and entertainment
  • ITS (Intelligent traffic solutions)
  • Long cable lengths, 400 meters and more (fiber version)
