Digital Double Speed Monochrome Megapixel Progressive Scan Camera

Discontinued, please see CM-141MCL


The JAI CV-M4 CL is a 1.4 megapixel progressive scan monochrome camera suitable for a wide range of machine vision applications. It features several special functions ideal for Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) applications.

The CV M4 CL camera outputs 24 full frames/second. Higher frame rates are possible by using partial scan and vertical binning.

Based on 10-bit A/D technology, the CVM4 CL utilizes proprietary sample and hold and correlated double sampling (CDS) techniques to achieve double-speed readout without trade-offs in dynamic range or image fidelity.
