MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SRI International today
unveiled a compact video stabilization interface board for Sony's popular line
of FCB-EX and FCB-EX-E series standard definition block cameras. The
ILS-5000-SD™ embedded stabilizer enhances video quality for camera modules
that are widely used in law enforcement, surveillance, intelligent traffic
systems, border protection, robotics, and unmanned vehicles.

The ILS-5000-SD improves the clarity of video by counteracting the effects of
camera shake and vibration. Camera motion caused by moving vehicles or
platforms and long-range zoom can make video images hard to interpret, trigger
false alarms, reduce storage capacity, and decrease available transmission
bandwidth. At a price less than the typical block camera, the ILS-5000-SD
corrects for unwanted vertical, horizontal, and rotational motion across a
wide range of shake frequencies. It also improves overall camera system

"SRI stabilization technology is already being used in high-end military and
surveillance applications," said Mark Clifton, vice president, SRI Products
and Services division. "The ILS-5000-SD now brings this powerful capability to
a far broader range of industries and applications."

Designed for easy integration, the ILS-5000-SD stabilizer supports Sony's
VISCA® camera control protocol, providing a seamless interface for both video
and stabilization control. It also matches the profile of Sony block cameras,
making the module ideal for new and existing systems.
