The CAM60 is a high-res, 2MPix, IP camera. This AT91SAM9260-based (ARM926) stand-alone computer is an excellent choice for surveillance and machine vision applications. The CAM60 adds an image sensor to the KB9260 development board.

The unit can be powered from either an AC wall adapter or Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). The low power requirement and small footprint make it easy to install. If using the PoE, a single Ethernet cable is used to power the CAM60, log-in to the system, and snap images.

The on-board, color image sensor supports a variety of resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 at a maximum of 30 frames per second. It supports YUV or it can generate JPEG images directly from the sensor without processor overhead. This enables the CAM60 to function as a JPEG server or MJPEG server at a greater frame rate than would be possible with processor-generated JPEG conversion.

Reading images from the sensor is easy. See the sample program used to take an example machine-vision picture. The ballpoint pen is shown in the picture for reference. The image sensor lens is adjusted by manual focus. Adjustment is not normally required, but can be used when viewing objects very close to the lens.

The sample movies shown on the side bar were taken from mjpg-streamer running on the CAM60 and viewed/recorded using VLC on a host in real time. The raw movie is much larger, but shows greater image quality while the compressed movies are smaller and can be used for reference. The raw movie is saved in OGG format and can be viewed with VLC Media Player. The compressed movies were converted from the original ogg using ffmpeg tools. These movies are compressed in size and time.
