Re: C1001/2 vid' cams for the 11301/2


Hi Bill , Imagenation are the guys that produced the cards I have , CX100 is the ISA card I have used and PXC200 is the PCI card , now replaced by the PXC200A . The software drivers etc are all still there on the website , I just checked  . They go all the way to providing code examples if you want to write your own s/w .I got my cards from Ebay so they cost nowhere near the prices shown on the site .
I'm not sure where I got the connection details for the C1001/2 from , I suspect that I went inside and did some circuit tracing , I had the distinct impression that the camera's were made by Mitsubishi at the time but I may have been wrong .

  Hi Bill , I have several of these video camera's but not the Tek frame grabber or software . I have a Cortex frame grabber which works very well and some Cortex s/w available on their website some years ago - not sure about now though . The card I am using is an ISA card so it needs an old PC, there is a PCI version of the card which might be easily found and the s/w for that was also on the website. The cards have a 9pin 'D' type connector on the bracket which allows video input and also a trigger for grabbing a frame plus a 12v output which can power the C1001/2
I have also used the cameras with a cheap USB stick used for surveillance systems and also similar ones used in video to DVD applications without much trouble. I had a great time showing my 7104 screen on a 15 inch laptop screen . There is a downside using the cameras though, whatever you do it's not much good capturing any single shot waveforms
I hope this helps a little
    Yes, it does. Thx.
    Any chance for a few links, save me digging high and low ?
I'd want the PCI version of any card. ISA is just -so-last century  :-)

    Not one to be lazy, I did some digging and found this halfway likely
looking site:

but I don't know what I'm after.

    I'm planning to pick up a Tek 79364, a 500MHz storage unit*  so fast
one-shots won't be a problem and I work in audio so all that's sort of a
'who-cares' anyway.

    * Yeah Walt, I'm still in; just delayed. My daughter bought the house
she wanted so I'll be out to see you real soon.
