Introducing the world's first patent-pending UVC camera that boasts a 2MP HD Global Shutter sensor all through a USB output while featuring external Frame-Sync capability with microsecond accuracy. All of these features in a familiar easy-to-use package with an impressive 900 meter water-depth rating.

Equipped with a modern Global Shutter sensor and a proprietary PCB, you will be able to capture synchronized video like never before. Using our frame-syncing technology, chain a multitude of cameras to capture simultaneously-synchronized video up to 60 FPS.

Choose between color or monochrome sensor. If color is not a necessity, monochrome sensor is recommended as it will offer better sharpness and low light performance with less bandwidth.

This camera offers versatile frame-syncing configurations for any project scale. Choose between a 1-leader/multiple-follower setup to have one camera control the synchronization of others, perfect for multi-angle captures. Alternatively, connect all cameras to an external clock signal for large-scale, complex operations. This flexibility ensures precise, simultaneous video capturing, making the stellarHD ideal for advanced multi-camera underwater setups.

Furthermore, due to its UVC compliant nature, the stellarHD is the first plug and play machine vision capable subsea camera. This makes the stellarHD the perfect choice for anyone looking to make a truly modern multi-cam underwater setup.

HIGHLIGHTED FEATURES

Learn about the unique feature of this product below.

TRUE GLOBAL SHUTTER

Omnivision's OmniPixel 3-GS™ technology equips each frame produced by the stellarHD with a true global shutter capability. This feature ensures high-precision image capture, which is essential for the demanding requirements of computer vision applications.

FRAME SYNCING CAPABILITIES

This camera offers microsecond precision frame syncing with two options:

1. Leader-Follower Mode

Designate one camera as the Leader and others as Followers using our Firmware loader app. The leader's start signal synchronizes all follower cameras, with no limit on the number of followers.

2. Follower Mode

Set all cameras as followers. They synchronize using an external signal from a microcontroller, allowing unlimited follower cameras to match frames precisely.

EXTERNAL TRIGGER MODE

In external trigger mode, you can precisely capture camera frames based on input from other sensors or a timer, leading to power and data storage savings.

HIGH FRAME RATE OPTIONS

The stellarHD camera features high frame rate capabilities, supporting up to 60 FPS, with additional options of 40, 30, 25, and 15 FPS. This range of frame rates enables high-speed image capture, suitable for various applications.

CHROMA OPTIONS

You have the option to select either a color sensor or a monochrome sensor with the stellarHD. The monochrome sensor, which is hardware-based, omits the Bayer filter, resulting in increased sharpness and enhanced performance in low-light conditions.

HIGH DEPTH RATING

The stellarHD's housing is crafted from a new aluminum alloy, offering superior corrosion resistance and a depth rating of 900 meters for unmatched durability and precision in underwater environments.

ADVANCED IMAGE PROCESSING

Our advanced image processing ensures that the camera obtains extremely low latency and high precision for advanced computer vision applications. It also incorporate our newest generation of Artificial Intelligence computational imaging, providing sharp images with outstanding dynamic range and low artifacts such as aliasing and moire.

SCRATCH RESISTANT SAPPHIRE GLASS

Our front glass element is made from sapphire which has been coated with an anti-reflective coating. This glass element will resist scratches to most materials and can survive a pressure of over 6000 PSI.

QUALITY OPTICS

The optics on this camera are specifically designed to reduce distortion, vignetting, and chromatic aberration while maintaining superior sharpness even around the edges.

MOUNTING OPTIONS

With 4 M2 screws and flat edges, the mounting potential of the stellarHD is limitless.
