StarForm 3D Time-of-Flight Camera

For market leading 3D image acquisition from a single camera, the StarForm™ camera from Odos Imaging is the perfect solution.

The camera incorporates state-of-the-art time-of-flight technology to deliver range and intensity measurement at each pixel over the complete image area.

By capturing perfectly registered range (3D) and intensity (2D) images the StarForm camera opens up completely new ways of extracting information from images.

For example, the 2D image can be used to extract feature and edge information. This image segmentation can then be combined with the 3D range data to build a full understanding of any scene.


Examples of where this capability is proving to be highly beneficial include automatic palletisation/de-palletisation, carton and object volume or sizing, fruit measurement, pick location and fill volume measurement.

Take advantage of highly flexible configuration and triggering options, including on-board image storage, to deliver the ideal images needed to solve all kinds of complex machine vision tasks.

Pulsed laser illumination, together with short image sensor exposure times provides the ability to capture 3D images even in situations with high ambient light levels. Additional illumination units are available to increase performance under challenging conditions, as well as accessories such as trigger cables and breakout terminals.

Industry standard GigEVision connectivity with a GeniCam interface provides the simplest possible way to interface to standard machine vision software packages.


Each camera is delivered with StarStreamer control and capture software as well as a comprehensive C++/.NET SDK (Software Development Kit), detailed software examples and extensive user manuals.
