Built to accommodate the high standards of industrial and scientific imaging, the Alvium series' unique System-on-Chip design provides choice, flexibility and freedom to machine vision and embedded vision applications.

The entry-level Alvium 1500 models provide a starting point for deploying cost-efficient solutions for both PC-based and compact vision systems, while the advanced camera series, the Alvium 1800, giving additional flexibility by providing more sensor possibilities, a greater range of features and different housing options.

Alvium 1800:
The Alvium 1800 series provides a wide breadth of functions including image correction and optimisation plus an array of trigger functions, these advantages can be applied to a range of imaging applications. Each of the Alvium 1800 models are available in both colour and monochrome.

Alvium 1500 series:
The Alvium 1500 series is ideal for easy hardware and software integration for embedded applications.

Allied Vision have an Alvium C family and a U family. The key difference between the C and U cameras is their video interface. The C models feature a MIPI-CSI-2 interface for Video4Linux2 and Direct Register Access, perfect for embedded vision applications. While the U cameras offer a USB3 Vision interface that makes them suited to a broader spectrum of applications including both machine vision and embedded vision applications.

The corner stone technology that give the Alvium an advantage over competitive products is that at its heart is a customised (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) ASIC designed by Allied Vision. The Alvium 1800 models posess the ability to perform preprocessing and image correction tasks onboard, meaning the workload on the host processor is significantly reduced. On top of this, the Alvium System-on-Chip sensor's interface offers exceptional scalability and is designed to support all current and future sensors from leading sensor manufacturers.

The Alvium series delivers a number of incredible benefits:
 
Choices
Selection of housing - board, open or closed housing (depending on model)
Various lens mount options for easy hardware integration
A choice of sensors from 0.5 to 21 megapixels
Colour or monochrome choice for all models
Software integration done via Video4Linux2, GStreamer, OpenCV, or direct register access
Resource savings
Image corrections and preprocessing tasks can be performed onboard the camera reducing the workload on the host processor
Designer can choose to down-size the host and so reduce overall system cost
User development time is also reduced by providing conditions where hardware and software are easily integrated
Power savings
The camera ensures just enough power for the application's selected features is received with unused features being shut off. Entry-level models draw less power
Compact and robust
Ultra-compact, single board design with all electronic components fitted on both sides of one 27 x 27 mm board. Small and light but also shock and vibration resistant
 
The Alvium series is designed for a variety of imaging applications:
 
Robotics
Entry-level models: for ultra-compact and low weight cameras with good image quality
Any compact system
ROI for applications with limited space and requiring only specific regions of an image to be read, eg bar code
Medical applications
Entry-level models: Any medical application needing an ultra-compact size and outstanding image quality, eg pathology
Traffic surveillance
Advanced models: licence-plate recognition where outstanding image quality and multiple regions of interest are required
Microscopy
Advanced models closed housing option: For quality images with extremely low noise
Aerial mapping
Advanced models: High-resolutions provide outstanding image quality for aerial mapping, and a sequencing feature for images with different conditions
