Factors To Consider When Purchasing A High-Speed Video Camera
 
By Photron

There are many factors that are important to consider when you purchase a high-speed camera. This article discusses the important factors involved in selecting the appropriate high-speed video camera for your specific information.

Spotlight On Scientific CMOS (sCMOS)
Considering High-Dynamic Range Global Shutter CMOS Sensors

CMOS image sensors with a global shutter (GS)—used to avoid image degradation caused by rolling shutter (RS) distortion—are ideal for applications including factory automation, UAVs, and automobile advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

Product Video: Chip-On-Tip Imaging Technology

Paul Dempster with Toshiba kicks off his video at Photonics West 2017 with a quick summary of their legacy three-chip CMOS cameras before going into a new offering—a chip-on-tip 0.7 mm x 0.7 mm CMOS sensor.

Digital High-Speed Phantom v-Series Camera Family

The Phantom v-Series of digital high-speed cameras are designed to eliminate blur, see the smallest of details, and keep moving targets in-frame as long as possible for the longest recording time for an event.

Saving The Lens For Last?
By Schneider Optics

Designers have been known to “save the lens for last” when creating vision systems with very specific black box dimensions and lighting, resolution, and pixel specifications. One solution to this dilemma is a new and improved design approach called concurrent engineering. 

OCI Hyperspectral Imagers

BaySpec’s family of OCI hyperspectral imagers are designed to address the image quality and ease-of-use issues in legacy hyperspectral imaging systems. These cameras feature the smallest sizes and lightest weights of their class. 

Avalanche Photodiodes For LIDAR Applications

Avalanche photodiodes (APD) are ideal for laser-based distance measurement, laser scanning and mapping, shape recognition and remote sensing, as well as LIDAR (light detection and ranging). APDs also excel in applications with very low optical signal strength or with high modulation frequencies.
