8 Megapixel CCD camera with high frame rate - Dual port GigE

The 8 Megapixel Prosilica GX3300 is a very high resolution CCD camera with Gigabit Ethernet output. The GX3300 has a fast frame rate of 17 fps at 3296 x 2472 resolution. The sensor used in the GX3300 is the high-quality 8 Megapixel CCD Truesense KAI-08050 that provides superior image quality, excellent sensitivity, and low noise. The GX3300 has two screw-captivated Gigabit Ethernet ports configured as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG) to provide a sustained maximum data rate of 240 MBytes per second. The Prosilica GX3300 can also work at half the bandwidth (120 MB/s) using a single cable.
