Ruggedized, high-resolution digital up to 4K CMOS cameras to upgrade from CCD to expand identification capabilities in low light
BOSTON, Mass. – March 21, 2022 — Adimec (www.adimec.com), a world leader in application-specific, leading-edge industrial camera solutions, will showcase its portfolio of vision products and technology optimized for the global security market at the 2022 edition of the SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing exposition in Orlando FL, April 5th through April 7th in Booth #1128. The company will display and discuss the enhancements to its TMX series of rugged full HD and beyond COTS cameras to provide full motion video in daylight on airborne payloads, long-range observations systems, and other sensor system architectures.
The TMX55 is part of Adimec’s TMX series of rugged daylight HD (and beyond) cameras with CMOS global shutter technology. This provides excellent imaging from low to high light scenes with optimal contrast reproduction. The cameras are designed for operational use in environmentally challenged systems with focus on small size, low weight, and low power.
At the full resolution of 4096 x 2160, the TMX55 can maintain a maximum frame rate of 30 fps at a maximum of 1 frame latency with the CoaXPress interface. In the TMX cameras, the implementations of auto exposure control, automatic white balance, and auto contrast enhancement secure reliable true scene observation under ever-changing outdoor conditions.
Adimec’s Adaptive Resolution functionality eliminates the concerns with the smaller pixel size of CMOS image sensors and the need to change optics when upgrading from legacy CCD cameras. Adaptive Resolution is proprietary interpolation algorithms in the camera to adapt CMOS pixels to deliver better image quality as CCD at the same field of view. The new CMOS pixels outperform CCD pixels of the same size with higher sensitivity, higher dynamic range, and higher MTF (especially for Bayer RGB color). An additional benefit is digital zoom capability.
Adimec’s preliminary TMX12 HD SWIR camera will come in a CoaXPress interface with both HDSDI and Cameralink options as well. The TMX 12 features 1280 x 1024 resolution, contrast enhancement, and a 1” optical format. This camera was built to have a compact size and low power design. Adimec HD SWIR cameras offer features such as contrast enhancements, ALPD and calibrated Non-Uniformities Corrections for operation in dynamic and harsh environments.
One of the many values Adimec offers in the production of our line of high-performance cameras is an evolving sensor to optics positioning system to actively align image sensors to wide field of view optics. This active lens alignment system uses real-time multipoint MTF measurements to assist in the positioning of the image sensor for optimal system performance at medium till high volume production volumes.
Other rugged TMX cameras showcased include the TMX52 and the TMX7. TMX52 provides 2064 x 1544 resolution at 60 fps with the 1/1.8” IMX252 image sensor and the TMX7-DHD that is customizable to fit a specific system outline and/or functionality requirements. Interface options include CoaXPress, Camera Link, and 3G-SDI.
Visit Adimec in Booth #1128 on the exhibition floor to see TMX series cameras with Adaptive Resolution in action as well as footage of SWIR capabilities in an outdoor environment.
