Pixim chip used in latest Camtron cameras

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - September 20, 2010 - Pixim Inc., a leading provider of image sensors and processors for enterprise security cameras, announced that Camtron Industrial Inc. of Seoul, Korea has introduced four new cameras integrating Seawolf, Pixim's latest chip technology. Camtron's Seawolf-powered camera series includes three true day/night domes (CTDD-6371, CTMV-6371S, VRDD-6371) and a box camera (CTDC-6372).

Through Seawolf, Camtron's new cameras offer 690 HTVL effective resolution as well as the industry's proven best wide dynamic range. In addition, Seawolf-based cameras require just 0.1 lux of illumination to produce usable, color images.

"Camtron is known for offering products based on state-of-the-art technology. With Seawolf, we can continue this trend," says KY Moon, Camtron's president. "Our customers will benefit from Seawolf's lowlight capabilities as well as its outstanding wide dynamic range."

"Camtron is already producing Seawolf cameras," says Jeff Jones, director of product marketing for Pixim. "Now integrators and end users will be able to experience, first hand, Seawolf's capacity to handle any lighting condition right out of the box."
