I have an application were we want to use an underwater cmos camera in Antarctica, at a remote ice pack station. Only have 12V battery and Iridium Satellite transmission. Need to find a device (if one exists) that will take analog video and convert (on a trigger signal) a jpg image, which we need to store on a data logger.
The camera being considered is a http://www.crustcrawler.com/products/cameras/index.php?prod=70
We are interfacing to a Campbell Scientific data logger (CR1000): http://www.campbellsci.com/cr1000
Though we may be able to use in IP interface device if needed: http://www.campbellsci.com/nl100
In the past we have used an ADVC image converter to take underwater cameras, convert the signal, record to a digital camcorder, but this was a manned application, not remote: http://www.grassvalley.com/products/advc110
So, looking for a Analog Video signal -> Digital JPG Image Converter where the "snap" of the image conversion can be controlled.
Thanks for any input, for an example site in the North Pole (but no underwater), see: http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/np2002/gallery_np_instruments.html
