e-con Systems Inc., a leading camera solutions company, today launched Conversa (See3CAM_CU38) - 3.4MP Custom Lens fixed focus USB 3.0 (UVC/UAC) camera with built-in stereo microphone for crystal clear sound. Conversa is provided with a S-mount (M12) lens holder that enables customers to choose a lens of their choice. It streams FHD (1920 x 1080) at 60 fps and HD (1280 x 720) at 60 fps in both uncompressed UYVY and compressed MJPEG formats.
Conversa is based on e-con’s most popular low light USB camera, See3CAM_CU30. Considering the demand for a camera with microphone in several applications, e-con Systems have introduced this built-in stereo microphone support for our hugely popular low light camera, See3CAM_CU30.
As the name implies, Conversa is ideal for customer applications such as indoor and outdoor video conference, doorbell camera, in-vehicle surveillance, action camera to record both audio and video during movement, rescue AGV and so on.

““Based on e-con’s proprietary FPGA interfacing IP, the Conversa is part of new family of USB3.0 cameras with UVC and UAC functionality built-in for applications that require both video and audio”” said Ashok Babu, President of e-con Systems Inc. “
“The FPGA interfacing IP can be customized to aggregate wide range of sensors that can be connected to USB UVC cameras”, he added.
Conversa houses a high-performance Image Signal Processor chip (ISP) that performs all the auto functions (Auto White Balance, Auto Exposure control) in addition to complete image signal processing pipeline which provides best-in-class images and video and the MJPEG compression. Conversa’s superior low light sensitivity enables to work in extreme lighting conditions.

Conversa is plug-and-play in both Windows and Linux without requiring additional drivers. In Windows, the camera is exposed as a DirectShow device, and in Linux as a V4L2 capture source. e-con Systems sample Linux application (QtCAM) and Windows application (e-CAMView) use the standard UVC/UAC protocol to access the camera controls. The e-CAMView, Windows DirectShow based sample video viewer application enable controls such as brightness, contrast, sharpness, saturation, gamma, gain, exposure (Manual and Auto) and white balance (Manual and Auto).
Conversa is currently available for evaluation. Customers interested in evaluating the See3CAM_CU38 can order samples from e-con Systems’ online store.
