It is equipped with the Camera Link deca interface but also supports full configurations. The high sensitivity and superb shutter performance of the CMV12000 image sensor enables excellent performance in light-starved and high-speed applications.

As with other members of the QUARTZ family, the new camera offers a range of quality-enhancing features. It includes Adimec’s Active Sensor Control with local as well as global advanced Flat Field Correction (FFC) capabilities, even in color and with field calibration support. The camera has special additional functions such as for signal-to-noise adjustments with up to 12 dB shot noise improvement compared to off-the-shelf CMV12000 sensor performance.
