The ultra-compact XC-55BB monochrome camera has a progressive scan CCD to provide full frame images. The XC-55BB is a remote head camera module of the XC-55. The square remote head of the XC-55BB has a precisely installed CCD to ensure accurate alignment and its miniature size allows access to very contained spaces. The CCD uses square pixels most suitable when working with computers. The square pixels of the CCD ensure resolution equally in both horizontal and vertical axis and negates the use of dimension correction for image processing. The XC-55BB model is compact and lightweight and can be used in a wide range of image processing applications.

Note to IE Users: If camera files are opening as text in your browser, you can cause them to instead download with an option to save as a file by associating .icd files in Windows to open in a program like Notepad. This will save you from having to copy text in the browser and manually create and save the file. Here are instructions to do this:
  • create a text file on your desktop and rename it to have the .icd extension (you may be alerted about the file type - just click Yes to continue)
  • right-click on your new file, select Open, and choose the option to "Select from a list of programs"
  • choose Notepad from the list of programs, select the option to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file", and open the file
  • Windows will now associate that file type with Notepad, and clicking Camera File links will download and save as desired
