Ask us About the DXC-390P ?

The DXC-390 industrial camera is a 1/3" type DSP 3-CCD color video camera which incorporates Exwave HAD« technology -- a new Sony technology that greatly improves camera sensitivity (F8 at 2000 lx) while reducing smear compared to previous CCD technologies. Using a C Mount lens and providing resolution of 800 TVL and a high S/N ratio of 62 dB, the DXC-390 is ideal for machine vision, industrial microscopy, digital photography, portrait proofing, amusement rides, point of view (i.e., sports shooting) and scientific image capture applications. ( Also available in PAL -- model # DXC-390P.)

  • High Resolution - 800 TVL
  • Color Reproduction - 3CCD with new 10 Bit DSP Technology
  • Compact Size - 56x50x128
  • Lightweight - 370g or approximately 13 oz.
  • C Mount


  • 1/3" 3 CCD color video camera with Exwave HAD« Technology: Provides images with high picture quality and color accuracy; high sensitivity (F8 at 2000 lx); and, low smear levels
  • 768 x 494 Pixel Resolution/800TVL with new 10 Bit DSP Technology. Powerful Picture Contrast Controls; produces images with high picture detail
  • High S/N Ratio: 62 dB (NTSC) / 61 dB (PAL). Produces images with low noise
  • Compact and light weight: Dimensions: 56 (W) x 50 (H) x 128 (D); Weight: Approx. 370 g
  • C Mount and Flange Back Adjustment:  Offers choice of many available lenses and allows synchronization of eye piece focus to camera image
  • Color Shading Compensation: Allows for verification of color on monitor, useful in microscopy
  • Extended Genlock (VBS Genlock and HD/VD in/out): Allows for synchronization of signals with Frame Grabber Boards
  • New 10 Bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Technology for Powerful Picture Contrast Controls
    DynaLatitude˘: Unique feature function for managing contrast of each pixel according to a histogram of video  signal level distribution; Dynamic Contrast Control Plus (DCC+): Innovative DSP technology virtually eliminates hue factor distortion and suitable for knee correction; Black Stretch: Emphasizes contrast in dark area while black  compression enhances or  deepens darkness; Partial Enhance: Allows a particular color to be selected and its hue, saturation and detail altered.
  • RS-232C Interface: Allows for easy control and operation of camera by external computer
  • Scene Files and User Files: Enables the user to set two custom parameters in the menu for instant recall
  • Full control of functions accessible from the side panel or through the optional RM-C950 Remote control unit
