POWERED BY PROPHESEE

Features both Prophesee Metavision sensor and out-of-the box compatibility with Metavision Intelligence, the most comprehensive Event-Based Vision software toolkit to date, downloadable for free.

ALUMINUM STRONG

Built from high-quality aluminum alloy, SilkyEvCam combines 40g lightness with highly efficient heat dissipation, electrical isolation and overall casing shielding

TOTAL LENS FLEXIBILITY

Always find the right focus. The high precision engineering behind SilkyEvCam ensures perfect optical alignment between the sensor, optical barrel and camera body. Switch seamlessly any C / CS mount compatible lens, from 8mm objective lens to microscopes’ or telescopes’ imaging ports, there is no limit to your project.

BUILT TO ENDURE

SilkyEvCam has been extensively tested to guarantee it will perform in a wide range of challenging conditions:

  • Change of temperature: IEC 60068-2-14
  • Damp heat, steady state: IEC 60068-2-78
  • Rough handling shocks: IEC 60068-2-31
  • Electrostatic discharge immunity test: IEC 61000-4-2

UNIVERSAL CONNECTIVITY

SilkyEvCam is designed with a Plug-and-Play approach in mind, to spare you the costs and integration challenges associated with additional Industrial PCs or frame grabbers. Use its powered USB3 connection to operate the camera from any computer and start right away.

ULTRA COMPACT

With ultra compact dimensions of only 30x30x36mm, SilkyEvCam fits in your most space-constrained system designs.

PIXEL INTELLIGENCE

Bringing intelligence to the very edge

Inspired by the human retina, at the heart of Prophesee patented Event-Based Metavision sensors, each pixel embeds its own intelligence processing enabling them to activate themselves independently, triggering events.

SPEED

>10k fps Time-Resolution Equivalent

There is no framerate tradeoff anymore. Take full advantage of events over frames and reveal the invisible hidden in hyper fast and fleeting scene dynamics.

 

DYNAMIC RANGE

>120dB Dynamic Range

Achieve high robustness even in extreme lighting conditions. With Metavision sensors you can now perfectly see details from pitch dark to blinding brightness in one same scene, at any speed.

LOW LIGHT

0.08 lx Low-Light Cutoff

Sometimes the darkest areas hold the clearest insights. Metavision enables you to see events where light almost does not exist, down to 0.08 lx.

DATA EFFICIENCY

 10 to 1000x less data

With each pixel only reporting when it senses movement, Metavision sensors generate on average 10 to 1000x less data than traditional image-based ones.

POWER EFFICIENCY

3nW/event

The Metavision sensor’s pixel independence and overall architecture enable new levels of power efficiency with just 3nW/event and 26mW at sensor level.
