3D Camera Manufacturer Orbbec Announces the Femto Mega Camera with Real-Time Streaming
Orbbec, a leading global 3D camera manufacturer, announced the launch of the Femto Mega. Built in partnership with Microsoft, it is designed to enable ready access to 3D technology. It’s the industry’s highest resolution 3D camera with real-time streaming of processed images over ethernet or USB connections that makes it ideal for use in robotics, logistics, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and fitness solutions.
The depth camera uses Microsoft’s ToF technology for precise scene understanding over a 120 degree field of view and a broad range from 0.25m to 5.5m. The 1 mega-pixel depth camera is complemented by a high performance 4K resolution RGB camera with a 90 degrees FOV. A built-in Nvidia Jetson Nano is used to run advanced depth vision algorithms to convert raw data to precise depth images. This eliminates the need for an external PC or compute device.
The camera can be directly connected to servers or the cloud using the Power over Ethernet (PoE) connection for both data and power. The device also has USB-C 3.2 and DC power supply connectors. A 6DOF IMU module provides orientation. The universal trigger control system provides accurate frame synchronization and uses standard ethernet cables for multi-camera and multi-sensor networks. The SDK enables easy setup and registration, and a rich set of APIs allows integration with various applications.
“Orbbec’s Femto Mega extends the use of Microsoft’s depth technology, used in Hololens and Azure Kinect DevKit, to a broad range of industrial applications,” said Jon Yee, Microsoft. “This camera is a result of a close collaboration between our teams and will be an essential tool helping AI developers to add depth perception to computer vision.”
“Our large scale cargo digitization solution is built using Microsoft’s Azure Kinect and Azure and is commercially deployed in Singapore. It is also in commercial trials for flight capacity optimization and digital handling at multiple international airports”, said Dr. Suraj Nair, CTO, Speedcargo Technologies, Singapore. “Orbbec’s Femto Mega enables us to maintain compatibility with our current system while reducing the size, cost and complexity of our solution. This will enable ease of scaling our operations to new locations”.
“Orbbec has been Mintt’s 3D vision partner for its fall detection and prevention solution”, said Eric Krzeslo, CEO, Mintt. “With its new advanced sensors such as the Femto Mega’s integrated approach Orbbec is helping us accelerate and improve our product roadmap.”
