Many commercial cameras are now available both as stand-alone cameras and those that are interfaced to computers using high-speed interfaces such as 10GigE, CameraLink and CoaXPress interfaces to a host computer.
Lighting based on the use of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) has reached a point at which the brightness and efficiency they now provide an attractive alternative to tungsten incandescent bulbs and halogen-based illumination systems.
