Princeton Instruments recently introduced the KURO, the world’s first scientific CMOS camera system to implement back-illuminated sensor technology. The KURO camera delivers both the fast frame rates and the exceptional sensitivity needed for applications such as hyperspectral imaging, astronomy, cold-atom imaging, quantum imaging, fluorescence spectroscopy, and high-speed spectroscopy, all whilst eliminating the drawbacks commonly associated with front-illuminated scientific CMOS cameras.
Adimec recently announced the new NORITE 5 Megapixel compact CoaXPress high-speed area scan camera, the N-5A100/CXP for high speed multi-camera inspection systems. The Norite N-5A100 camera is a 5 megapixel camera with CMOS global shutter technology in a 1” optical format. For developers of multi-camera systems, such as side-view cameras for 3D metrology, the N-5A100 cameras offer reduced system complexity through its simplicity while increasing throughput.
Canon Inc. recently announced that it has developed a new CMOS sensor equipped with a global shutter function that enables the capture of distortion-free images even when shooting fast-moving objects. Employing a new signal-readout drive system and new pixel structure that significantly expands the full well capacity and reduces noise, the sensor contributes to high-image-quality video capture by making possible the realization of a wide dynamic range.
Photometrics, a manufacturer of high-performance scientific cameras for life science applications, andGpixel Inc., a company specializing in high-performance CMOS image sensors, recently announced the release of the Photometrics Prime 95B Scientific CMOS camera.
Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today introduced the ME20F-SH Cinema Kit, which bundles the ME20F-SH Camera with 10 accessories to enhance the user operation and provide significant savings compared to purchasing the accessories separately. The ME20F-SH camera's CMOS sensor has pixels measuring 19 μm square, which is more than 5.5 times the surface area of the pixels on the CMOS sensor featured in select top-of-the-line interchangeable lens cameras.
Adimec plans to showcase its portfolio pf vision products and technologies that are optimized for the global security market at the 2016 SPIE Defense and Security Syymposium event in Baltimore, MD. The company will display and discuss the enhancements made to the TMX series of rugged full HD and beyond COTS cameras to provide full motion video in daylight on airborne payloads, long-range observations systems, and other sensor system architectures.
Photometrics has released its new sCMOS camera, the Photometrics Prime. Prime is the first 4.2 Megapixel scientific CMOS camera available for life science research that actively defeats the negative impact of Poisson noise in low light images. The camera packs a formidable FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing engine, ESP, that enables powerful signal restoration and feature detection for localization based Super Resolution Microscopy.
Forza Silicon's 100+ MP Cam Platform is a CMOS image sensor module camera reference design with 15360 x 8640 resolution, 2.45 μm pixel size, 68 dB dynamic range, and 4 e-read noise. President and cofounder Barmak Mansoorian met with us on the first day of the show to show us some of the camera's features and the images it can capture.
Shruti Sharma, inside sales manager with Hamamatsu, walks us through several of their product offerings displayed at Photonics West 2013.
Murad Karmali, VP of sales for PCO-TECH, introduces us to several cameras from his company’s product line at Photonics West 2013. This includes the pco.edge, an sCMOS camera that features simultaneous high light sensitivity, high frame rate, high resolution, and high dynamic range.
Paul Dempster of Toshiba’s Imaging Systems Division demonstrates the sensitivity and color accuracy advantages of the company’s three-chip high-definition video technology by comparing the performance of Toshiba’s new IK-HD1 three-chip CCD camera with its IK-HR1 single-chip CMOS camera.
In this video, Jessica Uralil of Hamamatsu Corporation highlights several new technologies, including the ORCA-Flash4.0 scientific CMOS camera. Built on a new Gen II sCMOS detector, this camera is ideal for applications such as single molecule imaging, super resolution microscopy, and high-speed calcium ion imaging.
Murad Karmali of PCO-TECH Inc. (formerly The COOKE Corporation) discusses the features of several cameras, including the pco.edge scientific CMOS camera. Used in super resolution microscopy, single molecule imaging, calcium imaging, and other applications, the pco.edge simultaneously offers extremely low noise, fast frame rates, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution, and large field of view.
