Alta AN1

Alta AN1

The Alta-AN is an affordable, versatile analog product family for Semiconductor and Industrial Vision OEMs. This family can acquire from almost any analog camera on the market; from high speed asynchronous-reset monochrome cameras to super high resolution color HDTV cameras. The Alta frame grabbers are high-quality, flexible, PCI Express bus imaging products that are well supported by an easy-to-use SDK and drivers for most popular software imaging packages.

The Alta-AN1 has one Virtual Frame Grabber (VFG) and can support one analog camera of any type.
