The Volucam™ is a compact, multi-format, variable frame rate video camera with internal RAW video recording. A variety of CMOS sensors are supported, allowing options for high resolution video up to 26.2MP or high frame rate HD video recording at over 300fps. Easy to configure and operate, this camera is ideal for synchronized multi-camera video recording applications such as volumetric video capture studios, light field capture arrays and multi-angle motion analysis systems.
HIGH PERFORMANCE IMAGE SENSORS
A variety of Volucam models are available featuring different high-quality CMOS image sensors from Sony and Gpixel. Resolution options range from 0.4MP to 26.2MP , with most models featuring electronic global shutter capability to eliminate motion artifacts. These sensors support continuously variable frame rates into the 100's of frames per second, and the active resolution can be adjusted arbitrarily up to the maximum for each sensor, allowing different aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9, 1:1, and more). The various sensors feature optical formats from 1/3" to 1.1".
The Volucam features a native C-mount lens interface which allows easy interchangeability between hundreds of compact lenses available today. C-mount lenses are commonly used in industrial and surveillance imaging. Adapters are available to attach other types of lenses such as photography optics. An adapter for Canon EF-mount lenses is available which integrates with the camera to remotely adjust the focus and aperture on the EF-mount lens. Third party adapters are available to adapt C-mount to B4, PL, Canon FD, and other mount types.
INTERNAL VIDEO RECORDING
A built-in high-performance solid state drive stores recordings until they can be transferred through the 10GbE interface for further processing. The capacity can be up to 1920GB, allowing long clips (or many shorter clips) to be recorded before the storage fills up. Video files are stored in a RAW format with up to 12-bit quality - color video is not demosaiced until further into the workflow. Recordings can be uncompressed or optionally compressed using a lossless codec. Compression allows smaller file sizes, leading to longer possible recording times and faster file transfer times through the network.
