HPx-400e Card

Cambridge Pixel has recently released its new HPx-400e PCI express radar interface card. The HPx-400e is a dual-stream radar interface card, capable of digitising radar video from two radars at up to 100MHz each.

As with all HPx series radar interface cards, the HPx-400e is fully supported by Cambridge Pixel's SPx suite of software.

The two independent input streams on the HPx-400e may be used in a number of different modes:

  • Dual sampling of the same radar video at different rates
  • Dual redundancy, with software-controlled automatic failover from one input to the other
  • Independent capture of two separate radars

For more information about the HPx-400e see here

We have a number of pre-production cards available at a substantial discount on the normal price of a production card. The cards are fully functional, guaranteed and are supplied with a board support library, full documentation, technical support and a 3 month evaluation copy of Cambridge Pixel's RadarView software. For full details of this limited offer contact Cambridge Pixel at

Norwegian Tunnel Project

Cambridge Pixel's new RadarVision product has been selected by Navtech for integration into their ClearWay Automatic Incident Detection traffic monitoring system.

Navtech's recently enhanced ClearWay system will be deployed on a new tunnel in Norway, which when completed will be the longest underwater tunnel in the world. This project includes the supply of over 100 traffic radars.

Cambridge Pixel's RadarVision technology allows the radar images to be converted to H.264 streams for presentation as virtual cameras in the CCTV monitoring system. This gives the tunnel operators unprecedented situational awareness in all conditions, especially during major incidents where normal camera technology would be severely hampered by smoke and fire.

VSD Supplied for Middle East Security Project

Cambridge Pixel is supplying its VSD application software as part of a large border and coastline security project in the Middle East.

VSD is designed to provide security personnel with a clear, intuitive display of radar and camera video. VSD supports multiple radar and camera inputs and incorporates radar tracking, camera control, slew-to-cue, target alarms and other security-oriented features.

Windows Error Reporting

As part of our commitment to continuous product improvement, all of the main Cambridge Pixel applications have been registered for Windows Error Reporting. This means that should one of these applications crash or hang, a crash dump will be sent to Microsoft and then made available to Cambridge Pixel, allowing us to debug the problem and fix it.

No personally identifiable information is sent to Microsoft and problem reports may be viewed in the Security and Maintenance section of Windows Control Panel, under: System and Security → Security and Maintenance → Maintenance → View reliability history. More information about Windows Error Reporting is available here

This new facility will help us to detect and resolve rare issues due to system interactions as efficiently as possible.

10 Year Anniversary

Cambridge Pixel recently celebrated 10 years in business.

Founded in 2007 by Dr Dave Johnson, the company has grown steadily over the last 10 years. We now export to over 40 countries and in 2015 were recognised with a Queen's Award for International Trade.

Thank you to all of our customers who have helped make Cambridge Pixel a success. We look forward to continuing to work with you all.

Don't forget, we will be exhibiting at the MAST show and conference in Tokyo from 12th - 14th June: You can visit us on stand 116 and we'll also be presenting a paper on small target detection.

Yours sincerely,

Rob Helliar
