December 20, 2012 – Richmond, BC, Canada – Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, today announces the release of the all new Blackfly camera.

By leveraging Point Grey’s design for manufacturing experience, the Blackfly camera redefines price performance.

The first model BLFY-PGE-13E4 features a 1.3 MP, 60 fps, CMOS global shutter sensor available in both monochrome and color, less than 2 W power consumption in the world’s smallest and lightest GigE POE camera package. Future Blackfly models include 0.5 and 0.9 MP CCD resolutions with excellent quantum efficiency and wide dynamic range. By combining the best sensor technology, interface implementation and low power design with an unbeatable price point, the Blackfly camera is the perfect choice for traditional machine vision and outdoor imaging applications.

The BFLY-PGE-13E4 model uses the EV76C560 CMOS sensor from e2v which uses a global shutter readout architecture. Global shutter is critical to prevent geometric distortion when capturing images of fast moving objects. The CMOS pixel design on the other hand addresses blooming and smearing artifacts caused by bright sources or reflections in the camera’s field of view. The Blackfly BFLY-PGE-13E4 model satisfies industry demand for global shutter CMOS ideal for cost sensitive applications in automation, 3D imaging or license plate recognition.

Point Grey’s Blackfly camera measures just 29 x 29 x 30 mm and provides a unique set of features including power over Ethernet, temperature and status monitoring, in-field updatable firmware, color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, pixel binning functionality, and much more.

“The Blackfly camera is generating huge interest in the industry by addressing customer demand for modern sensor technology, small footprint and an attractive price point.” explains Michael Gibbons, Director of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Gibbons adds, “We are excited to address traditional machine vision, 3D imaging, automated inspection, open road tolling and many new and future applications with the Blackfly camera.”

The Blackfly BFLY-PGE-13E4 (color and monochrome) model is list priced at USD $395 and EUR €299 and is available to order now from Point Grey and its network of distributors.
