There is no single industry label that applies to MDC: it’s at work, in numerous models, in microscopy, in medicine (e.g., ophthalmologie), in the automotive sector as well as in countless industrial monitoring applications.
Data transport from the MDC takes place via Ethernet connection, making the MDC virtually universally adaptable and connectible. It can operate in direct peer-to-peer connection or within a branched network architecture including numerous devices. Cost-effective, robust, existant network infrastructure can be used in every case, regardless of whether one camera is used or several are operated concurrently in the network.
When high-quality, high-resolution compressed video matters, the MDC technology platform really demonstrates its particular strengths. All streaming protocols as well as the universal hardware encoder for video are implemented. MDC cameras use a real-time streaming protocol. Using PTP Precision Time Protocol, the IP network camera’s current system time is synchronized. Video data may be streamed via GigE Vision as an alternative. Even dual streaming for parallel recording of two different resolutions is possible.
With maximum modularity, the circuit layout in MDC cameras offers the highest possible flexibility for rapid modification implementation. Latest CMOS sensors with different optical sizes, FPGAs, μ-controllers and processors can be combined. In the future, the control environment will also include provisions for system peripherals such as lenses and microscopes.
The circuit board layout is miniaturized using HDI multilayers. A wide variety of models are available: board cameras, cameras with offset heads, and very compact design executions within the housing.
Every camera solution built on the Juno technology platform offers an attractive price-to-performance ratio. The highest directive in its development was to create a platform that could be realized using scaleable customer solutions even under heavy cost pressure. High-end solutions are just as possible as those at entry level; small quantities are just as doable as large-scale production.
