Phoenix 5.0 MP Polarization Model


Polarized Sensor
5.0 MP, 2448 x 2048 px
Frame Rate
24 FPS
The Phoenix polarization camera features Sony’s IMX250MZR CMOS polarized sensor. This 5 MP global shutter sensor is based on the popular IMX250 Sony Pregius CMOS mono sensor with polarizing filter array added to the pixels. The sensor has four different directional polarizing filters (0°, 90°, 45°, and 135°) on every four pixels. The Phoenix polarization camera performs on-camera processing using the four directional filters and outputs both the intensity and polarized angle of each image pixel.

Quick Start Guide / More Info

Please note that cables, lenses, PoE power sources, interface cards, and tripod adapters are sold separately.

Step 1: Remove dust cap from camera lens mount

Remove Dust Cap
Press the dust cap button to release the cap from the camera.

Step 2: Attach Tripod Adapter

Attach Tripod Adapter
Use three M2 screws (2 in the front and 1 in the back) to attach the tripod adapter to the camera.

Step 3: Attach A Lens

Attach a Lens
Screw in an appropriate lens into the camera’s lens mount.

Step 4: Connect Cat 5e/6/6a to PoE device

Connect Cable to Network or Host PC
Connect a Cat 5e/6/6a cable to (a) PoE switch, (b) PoE injector or (c) PoE network interface card.
Note: You must use at least a Cat 5e cable to utilize GigE bandwidth.

Step 5: Connect Cat 5e/6/6a cable to camera

Connect Cable to Camera
Connect a Cat 5e/6/6a cable to the camera. The camera will briefly blink red upon power-up and then start blinking green once it is ready to stream.
