e-con Systems Introduces a 360° Camera Kit for NVIDIA Jetson TX1/TX2 Development Boards

e-con Systems has previously launched MIPI cameras for Jetson TX1/TX2 development kit, but the company has now announced e-CAM30_HEXCUTX2, a kit with an adapter board, and six synchronized HD cameras connected that can be used for video surveillance, or robots requiring a 360° or “720°” field of view.

The kit is comprised of the following elements:

  • e-CAMHEX_TX2ADAP adapter board for connecting six cameras through Jetson boards’s J22 connector supporting up to 6x 2-lane MIPI CSI-2 cameras
  • 6x 3.4MP MIPI CSI2 low light camera board with interchangeable S-mount lens, and featuring ON Semiconductor AR0330 color CMOS image sensor; each camera supports VGA to 1080p/3M resolution up to 30 fps
  • 6x 30cm custom micro coaxial cable

The kit operates at 5V, and requites between 5.33 to 8.10 watts, the later while streaming 6 Cameras on Jetson TX2. Software support is implemented through a Linux camera driver (V4L2) on top of NVIDIA’s JetPack 2.3/3.0, and e-con Systems also developed demos such as their Gstreamer based hexcam app to manage six synchronized cameras, as well as e-CAM_TK1 GUVCView for single streams as showcased in the embedded video below.


The e-CAM30_HEXCUTX2 camera kit is available now, and such system is rather pricey at $1,499 without the Jetson TX1/TX2 development kit, but you save $200 if you order before September 14, 2017. You’ll find a purchase link, and access to software and hardware documentation in the product page.
