We reached our KickStarter goal! And UVC Support!

Hi folks, we reached our Kickstarter goal! The OpenMV Cam H7 is now FUNDED! Woot!

So, given this, we've gone ahead and placed an order for 10K STM32H7VIT6 from ST. Note that we're partnering with our Chinese Distributor SingTown on this production run to afford the 10K STM32H7 chips. Thanks Kaizhi and Yuan!

New Features

We've added UVC firmware support for the OpenMV Cam M7 and H7. With UVC support you can now stream video from your OpenMV Cam to a desktop PC or SBC. Using this feature you can turn your OpenMV Cam H7 into a FLIR Lepton webcam or a global shutter webcam.

This new feature will be available soon in the next software release.

Kickstarter

We've added new distributor Kickstarter Rewards to our campaign. If you're interested in reselling the OpenMV Cam H7 and want to help us out on our campaign we've got two new reward tiers:

  • Big Pack - $439 for 10 OpenMV Cam H7s ($44 per extra cam)
  • Distributor Pack - $999 for 25 OpenMV Cam H7s ($40 per extra cam)

The MSRP of the OpenMV Cam H7 will be $65 like the OpenMV Cam M7.
