The Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera to incorporate a FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing™ engine (ESP) that enables a number of real-time processing features. Utilizing sCMOS sensor technology, Prime is and an extremely versatile imaging solution for life science imaging applications such as microscopy and high-speed ratiometric imaging.

Lambert Instruments’ HiCAM series cameras offer the unique combination of high-speed and sensitivity down to single photon level. These properties are achieved by using a dual stage image intensifier that is fiber-optically coupled to the CMOS sensor. Spectral sensitivity can be selected for the specific application. Use of digital cameras in combination with intensifiers and boosters allow us to create images of high-speed events, even when light is failing.

FLIR’s X6900sc series cameras are the world’s fastest full frame MWIR and LWIR 640 x 512 resolution thermal cameras for use in high-speed R&D and science applications. The infrared cameras are designed to produce thermal data at up to 1,004 frames per second at full resolution, and can be sub-windowed for even faster rates.   With multiple simultaneous digital data outputs over GigE, CameraLink and CoaxPress in addition to the ability of burst recording to on-camera RAM for up to 26 seconds,  there is never a worry of missing critical frames of data.

The Rolera Bolt, QImaging's new Scientific CMOS camera, was designed for demanding high-speed, low-light imaging. As a cost-effective solution, it was designed to meet the imaging requirements for a diverse set of applications ranging from live cell fluorescence to whole organism motility studies. Capable of streaming at 30 full frames per second with 1.3 mega-pixel resolution and 3e- read noise, the Rolera Bolt is perfect for tracking high-speed dynamic events with detailed spatial and temporal resolution.

The Bobcat-640 is a high-resolution, compact, InGaAs SWIR camera ideal for waste sorting, semiconductor inspection, failure analysis, food inspection, and other specialized quality inspection and high temperature process control applications.

Vision Research offers the new Phantom v2640 as the world’s fastest 4Mpx camera, with exceptional throughput of 26 Gpx/sec, and 6,600 fps at full resolution of 2048 x 1952. The camera features high flexibility, high sensitivity with ISO monochrome of 16,000D and color at 3,200D, and can reach a 142 ns minimum exposure with the FAST option. With excellent image quality, a dynamic range of 64.1 dB, and noise of only 7.2e-, this camera is perfect for a variety of applications, including data acquisition, motion analysis, and more.

The new Phantom Flex4K from Vision Research is featured as a high-speed camera providing exceptional flexibility with its high frame rate capabilities, and with the ability to adapt to different shooting styles in the cinematography market. Able to provide sharp, detailed images with extremely low noise and high dynamic range, the super-35mm 4K sensor shoots from 15 frames-per-second (fps) up to 1,000 fps at 4K, and almost 2,000 fps at 2K/1080p.

Vision Research offers the new Phantom Flex4K-GS based on the Flex4K cinema camera platform. It incorporates a global shutter with a 4K, 9.4 megapixel, 35mm sensor, which ensures that every pixel exposes at the same moment in time.
