The Hyperspectral Era Has Already Begun

February 06, 2014 // Peter Clarke Opinion: the hyperspectral era has already begun Research institute IMEC, a pioneer of hyperspectral imaging, is helping roll out the technology in high-end markets but we should not lose sight of the fact that hyperspectral imaging is already in use in very high volume in consumer market The hyperspectral era has begun and it seems likely that CMOS image sensors are about to embark on classic S-shaped adoption curve for the addition of infrared to visible light sensing. IMEC developed a set of filters to sit on top of a commercially available CMOS image sensor in 2012. And the research has continued to make progress through 2013 and 2014 with IMEC able to define 100 bands across the visible and near-infrared parts of the spectrum from 600-nm to 1000nm wavelength. However, that work by IMEC may have given the impression that complex hyperspectral imaging is aimed at high-value applications in space, in defense, in industy, in agriculture, medical and surveillance applications (see The future of video surveillance is hyperspectral ). It used to be the case that technologies that started off in high value, low volume applications would, over many years, gradually increase volumes and reduce in price due to economies of scale and manufacturing amortizations and trickle down to consumer electronics. But things move a lot faster in the 21st century and hyperspectral imaging is already in use in very high volume in consumer markets. In that regard we must look to […]

New Generation 960H Cams: Looks Better, Works Better, And Less Noisy

Source: Alf Chang | Date: 12/11/2013 Related tags: 960H solution , Cameras , SONY , Next Chip , R&D When the first 960H cameras were introduced, problems with displays and DVR decoders led critics to dismiss the technology as a fad. However, with chipmakers like Sony and Nextchip investing heavily in R&D, as well as hard work from China, Korea and Taiwan manufacturers, 960H has improved significantly. In contrast to the D1(720×480@30fps) resolution of older analog signals, the new batch of 960H products not only improve on image quality, they also feature WDR, higher SNR and better color reproduction. Three Major Leaps The new generation of 960H products improves in three areas: digital noise reduction, wide dynamic range and color reproduction. Digital Noise Reduction The new DSPs provide higher performance, allowing camera manufacturers to develop cameras that produce resolutions higher than 700TVL. Furthermore, the new processors enable more effective digital noise reduction through 2D and 3D noise processing, raising the SNR higher than 52dB. Wide Dynamic Range Newer 960H cameras also feature better WDR performance. Cameras powered by Sony’s Effio-V can capture clear images even in environments with high-contrast lighting or backlight situations. The new 960H cameras’ better backlight compensation and effective exposure result in better WDR performance with or without image enhancements. Color Reproduction Color reproduction is a strong advantage for 960H cameras. Sony, Pixelplus and Nextchip introduced DSPs that improve image sensors’ color performance and reproduction even further. To see the latest advancements in 960H video surveillance […]
