Fast CCD Megapixel camera - 59 fps

The 1 Megapixel GE1050 is a fast CCD camera with Gigabit Ethernet interface (GigE Vision®). It incorporates the 1024 x 1024 Truesense KAI-01050 CCD that runs just under 60 frames per second at megapixel resolution and even faster with region of interest readout. The progressive scan architecture and global electronic shutter provide excellent image quality for full motion video and still image capture.
