DMN Newswire--2013-12-13--Viewbits, the industrial cameras division of Computer Modules, Inc., announced today that they are now shipping their new mini 1080p HD camera that supports 60 frames per second -- the GNAT 1080p 60.  The ultra-compact camera measures just over 1.65 inches (42 millimeters).



Available in cased or board versions, the GNAT 1080p 60 is targeted for a wide variety of applications, including surveillance, airborne video cameras, avionics, inspection, public transportation, situational awareness, and video.



The 2.1 megapixel camera features a 1/3 inch progressive scan CMOS sensor, AGC (Automatic Gain Control), WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), digital zoom, and defog.  It also supports brilliant DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) technologies like DNR, 3D-NR and 2D+3D.
