Basler Company Overview

By: John Honovich, Published on Mar 31, 2009

I spoke with Basler this week. They are a machine vision company that is increasing its presence in the security industry with a line of megapixel cameras [link no longer available]. They claim better image quality using CCD and H.264 on all cameras up to 2MP (1600 x 1200). The MSRP on their 2MP camera (BIP-1600c [link no longer available]) is $1100 USD (H.264 with maximum  of 3 fps). That's fairly inexpensive and if you want H.264 and are ok with low frame rates, this could be an interesting option. Basler is supported by a fair number of VMS vendors including Milestone, LuxRiot and Aimetis.
