Data Translation Offers Price Cuts on PCI Imaging Frame Grabbers

5/7/2003 - Responding to the industry demand for lower cost solutions for security and video data analysis, Data Translation®, Inc. announced new pricing for its DT3120 and DT3130 Series of PCI frame grabbers.

The DT3120 is now priced at $199. It is a frame grabber that can acquire a standard monochrome, composite color, or S-video color image from a single camera. Its PCI bus and Scatter/Gather architecture enables it to handle large amounts of image data quickly and effectively, and with no CPU intervention. The DT3120 is an ideal solution for security applications, as well as scientific and general-purpose imaging.

The DT3130 Series contain the functionality of up to three frame grabbers on one half-size PCI board. Each handles monochrome, composite color, or S-video color input sources. These frame grabbers provide programmable strobe outputs for precise camera control. The DT3130 Series is best suited for applications requiring simultaneous image acquisition from multiple sources. Data Translation offers an isolated version of each board in the series. The DT3131, with three muxed inputs, is priced at $495; DT3131-ISO is priced at $525; the DT3132, with six muxed inputs, is priced at $595; the DT3132-ISO is priced at $625; the DT3133, with nine muxed inputs, is priced at $695 and the DT3133-ISO is priced at $725.

According to Fred Molinari, president, founder and CEO of Data Translation, “Today’s announcement expands imaging beyond the traditional markets of research or scientific analysis by providing fast, reliable and proven solutions that can meet the needs of today’s security and surveillance markets.”

All Data Translation PCI frame grabbers ship with a valuable software bundle featuring evaluations of DT Vision Foundry® and GLOBAL LAB® Image/2, a ready-to-run application, Windows® device drivers and complete documentation.
