  2. Tradeoffs In High Speed Camera Sensor Design
    4/12/2017

    Jay Stepleton with Vision Research spent a few minutes with us to talk about the tradeoffs involved in speed, resolution, and sensitivity when designing high speed camera sensors.

  3. Product Video: Extended Contact Bearing Way, And Why You Need It
    4/12/2017

    Dan Denison with OptoSigma talks about his company’s proprietary extended contact bearing way technology, used in their translation stages.

  4. Imaging In Persistent Aerial Surveillance And Reconnaissance Applications
    4/12/2017

    In this video, Mike Leaning of Canon speaks about the importance of high-resolution imaging for applications that involve aerial surveillance and reconnaissance.

  5. Key Specifications For SWIR Detectors
    4/12/2017

    Raf Vandersmissen with Xenics spoke to us about how read noise and dark current can impact performance parameters in SWIR detectors – specifically as it relates to sensitivity, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio.

  6. You Cannot Manage What You Cannot Measure: Optical Filter Manufacturing
    4/11/2017

    On the first day of DCS 2017, Jason Palidwar, with Iridian Spectral Technologies, spent a few minutes with us talking about the 3 key criteria that apply to all of the filters his company manufactures – surface quality, spectral characteristics, and durability and reliability.

  7. Important Factors In Infrared Imaging In Test Range And Tracking Applications
    4/11/2017

    Ross Overstreet speaks with us about the types of features that are important on infrared cameras when used on a test range for rocket launches, missile intercepts, and target scoring applications.

  8. Imaging Plasma Channels In Electron Beam Welding
    4/10/2017

    During electron beam welding, the high energy concentration causes the material to melt, which forms plasma. The escaping plasma creates a channel as it “drills” into the depth of the workpiece and forms the welded seam as it cools. The sequence shown in this video has been attained using 9,000 fps with the exposure matched to the actual welding process.
