CES 2023: Orbbec launches two 3D sensor cameras

06 January 2023

Camera provider Orbbec has introduced two 3D sensors cameras at CES 2023 with integrate inertial measurement unit and multi-camera sync support for 3D in a variety of electronics sectors.

Both cameras are developed using Orbbec’s new generation ASIC chip called the MX6600 for depth processing and supports depth/color image registration in different resolutions.

The first 3D sensor camera is called the Gemini 2 and is based on active stereo infrared technology with a sensing range of 0.12 m and 10 m along with a field of view of up to 100 degrees diagonal. The cameras can work in both indoor and outdoor environments.

The Gemini 2 integrated IMU that provides motion, position and navigational sensing over six degrees of freedom. This camera could be used for robotics, logistics and security monitoring.

The second 3D sensor camera is called the Astra 2, which uses structured light and image processing to compute a 3D image of the observed environment in real-time. The camera supports up to 2-megapixel resolution for depth and color images output in real time.

The Astra 2 is more stable of output depth data and low motion blur compared to the original Astra series. This camera could be used for security monitoring, behavior analysis, body/object/room scanning and interactive gaming.
