The ultra-compact, rugged, video recorder Rodeo by IO Industries is designed for RAW recording from high-performance multi camera setups and has a CoaXPress 2.0 interface. The FPGA-based lossless compression engine delivers an effective recording rate of 2GByte/sec (camera output) to an internal SSD (up to 2TB). Features include a precise multi-camera shutter and timecode synchronization with accurate timestamping. Rodeo’s 10GbE copper/fiber interface connects to a network switch for PC control and monitoring, providing the scalability required for setups with 100+ cameras. The SDI video output provides a secondary path for low-latency live monitoring over SDI infrastructure.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
