Compact optical format

The SP-12401C-PGE features Sony’s advanced 3.45 µm pixel technology, enabling its 12.37-megapixel resolution to fit in a compact 1.1” optical format for more lens options and a smaller, lighter form factor.

Excellent sensitivity and image quality

Also available in a model with monochrome output, the SP-12401-PGE cameras feature a dark noise rating of less than 2.5 electrons for outstanding image quality even under low light conditions.

Advanced features for color imaging

The SP-12401-PGE includes several color imaging features usually found only on more expensive prism cameras. These include multiple color space conversions, built-in 5x5 de-Bayering capability, and a 6-way color enhancement function.


  • 12-megapixel resolution at 9.3 fps via standard GigE Vision interface.

  • Compact 1.1” CMOS imager with global shutter.

  • 8/10/12-bit Raw Bayer color output, or 24/32-bit RGB via built-in 5x5 de-Bayering algorithm.

  • 3.45 µm square pixels provide low noise with excellent sensitivity.

  • Color space conversion to HSI, CIE XYZ, sRGB, Adobe RGB, or user defined RGB format.

  • Color enhancement function to add emphasis to important color values.

  • Automatic Level Control (ALC) for dynamic lighting conditions.

  • Burst mode for capturing short sets of images at nearly 3X the camera’s frame rate.

Here are a few applications where Spark Series cameras are especially suitable

Spark Series cameras are the perfect starting point for a wide range of machine vision, entertainment, and mapping applications.

Electronics inspection

Verification of circuit layouts and coatings, ball grid array inspection, component positioning, solder paste quality, dimensional accuracy, pick & place applications, and more.

Mapping and aerial imaging

Cameras mounted on aircraft, satellites, or ground vehicles capture images to help create maps, analyze terrain, or build street views.

Inventory robotics

Large fields-of-view with high levels of detail are needed to scan shelves for products and their associated identification codes.


Many types of industrial parts must be carefully measured to ensure conformance to system requirements. High resolution images enable higher precision on critical measurements.

Automotive spray finish

High speed, high resolution systems identify surface imperfections finer than a grain of salt in final vehicle assembly, to cue operators where to polish and buff out imperfections.
