Adimec Exhibits New CMOS Extended Day Cameras with Adaptive Resolution at SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing 2017
Ruggedized, high-resolution digital HD and beyond CMOS cameras to upgrade from CCD to expand identification capabilities in low light
BOSTON, Mass. – April 5, 2017 – 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 2017 edition of the SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing exposition in Anaheim, CA, April 11th through April 13th. 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 new TMX55 is part of Adimec’s TMX series of rugged daylight HD (and beyond) cameras with second generation CMOS global shutter technology. They provide 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.
Other TMX cameras include the TMX50 and the TMX52. The TMX50 offers 2464 x 2056 resolution at 40 fps with the 2/3” IMX250 image sensor and the TMX52 provides 2064 x 1544 resolution at 60 fps with the 1/1.8” IMX252 image sensor. Interface options include CoaXPress, Camera Link, and 3G-SDI.
Adimec’s Adaptive Resolution functionality eliminates the concerns with the smaller pixel size of CMOS image sensors and the need to change optics. Adaptive Resolution is proprietary interpolation algorithms in the camera to adapt CMOS pixels to deliver equivalent or 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.
Visit Adimec in Booth #816 on the exhibition floor to see the TMX55, and the TMX50 camera with Adaptive Resolution in action compared to latest generation CCD cameras.
