Preparing for Vision 2016 in Stuttgart – a sneak peak at our multi-cameras over CoaXPress demo, part 2

Posted by Benny Koene on Thu, Oct 13, 2016

So  last week we showed an image of our multi-cameras over CoaXPress demo. In the image, some cameras were rotated counter clockwise but the images they recorded looked to rotate the scene clockwise. As promised we will explain this effect in the blog of this week. Read More

Preparing for Vision 2016 in Stuttgart – a sneak peak at our multi-cameras over CoaXPress demo

Posted by Benny Koene on Thu, Oct 6, 2016

We are well into our prepartions for the 2016 Vision Show in Stuttgart this November, and we are excited to demonstrate our new products.

Here are some sneak preview photographs made while our support engineers were doing some initial tests for the demo setup with 4(!) of our new 5 Mp CoaXPress cameras together with 1 of our new 25 Mp CoaXPress camera on only 2(!) frame grabbers in a single PC.

More CoaXPress frame grabber options and other accessories to enable fastest data rates

Posted by Benny Koene on Fri, Sep 9, 2016

As the adoption of CoaXPress continues to grow in machine vision and global security systems, more and more cameras and frame grabbers have come on the market.  The majority of system designers are making the move to CoaXPress to take advantage of ever faster CMOS image sensors, to reduce cabling constraints present with Camera Link or USB 3.0, or to prepare for easy future upgrades. Here we share product updates from some of the CoaXPress frame grabber manufacturers in alphabetic order.

Extreme High full well capacity camera to increase the sensitivity in interferometric microscopy – interview with MIT

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Thu, Jul 21, 2016

Adimec interviews Poorya Hosseini of MIT to discuss the use of extreme high full well capacity camera in interferometric microscopy

Optics Letters recently published a paper titled “Pushing phase and amplitude sensitivity limits in interferometric microscopy”.  For this research, the Adimec high full well (HFW) Q-2HFW-CXP camera was used.  The new 2 Megapixel CoaXPress camera (Q-2HFW-CXP) brings a 1440x1440 resolution at up to 550 fps based on 12 micron pixels. The design of the pixels in this global shutter CMOS image sensor, CMOSIS CSI2100, is optimized for maximum full well performance. The full well capacity (FWC) of over 2 million electrons per pixel is quite unique that is around 100 times higher compared to commonly available high speed CMOS sensor technology today (reference: 20 kel full well). This million-level electrons full well capacity per pixel results in extremely good shot noise performance of up to 63 dB SNR, making it possible to accurately detect very weak contrast variations in bright environments. The camera was developed as part of the FP7 funded CAReIOCA consortium.

How the 24h of Le Mans profits from low light CMOS cameras

Posted by Benny Koene on Thu, Jun 30, 2016

In the weekend of 18th and 19th of June, Porsche won the 24 Hours of Le Mans after Toyota got into problems in the final seven minutes. This year, for the first time, Adimec’s rugged security cameras with highly sensitive CMOS Global Shutter technology where used to broadcast the driver’s view on the road. The extreme environment inside the sports car with constantly changing levels of shock and vibration, changing temperatures and the requirement to have broadcast quality images during daytime and at night with low light make it a challenging environment for a camera.

3 Steps to future proof long-range observation systems – The move from SD to HD and from analog to digital

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Sep 18, 2015

Long-range observation and designator systems have been installed on permanent and mobile platforms to provide 24-hour surveillance and early warning detection. Although more imaging devices have been added to the platforms there is now a move towards higher accuracy, increased image quality, networked video distribution and multipurpose use (extension of capabilities) at identical or lower cost.
