MAPIR KERNEL CAMERAS
KERNEL is a modular camera platform that can be easily connected together to form custom, compact camera arrays. Each camera module is a self-contained Linux computer with a single sensor and on-board storage. Modules connect together with link boards or breakout cables which distribute power and signals, allowing a single port for array communications.
Kernel is designed to be easily reconfigured to suit the user’s project requirements. It is possible to interchange sensors, lenses and filters in each camera module and configure the camera software so the image’s embedded EXIF metadata matches the hardware configuration. These cameras are also future proof. For example, when a new sensor is released you can simply purchase the sensor board rather than the entire new camera. This reduces overall product costs whilst allowing your camera to remain updated. Similarly, if a camera component is damaged and needs to be replaced you would only need to purchase just that part and easily make the repair.
The Kernel range comprises up to six cameras per array with a choice of 3.2MP or 14.4MP sensors, 8 lenses and 21 filters.
