High Sensitivity for Security: Sony’s latest STARVIS™ Sensor IMX415 is a New Benchmark for Low Light Images

Image Sony Semiconductor Solutions launches a new image sensor for compact security applications. The IMX415 combines the STARVIS™ technology for excellent visibility in low light surveillance with new “Prior Low Noise Circuit” (PLNC) technology for better SNR. The IMX415 is a very compact candidate for low light applications in security and for challenging environments in industrial and factory automation.
Available from Sony’s decades-long partner and vision expert FRAMOS, the new Type 1/2.8-type CMOS sensor reaches a resolution of 8 Megapixel with 1.45µm pixel and a high-speed frame rate of 90 fps at 10-bit. Read more ›

JAI launches Go Series polarization camera with GigE Vision interface

Image JAI has launched a second version of its Go Series 5-megapixel polarization camera.
The new GO-5100MP-PGE is equipped with a standard GigE Vision interface and, just like JAI’s original GO-5100MP-USB with a USB3 Vision interface, the new camera is built around Sony’s IMX250MZR polarized CMOS image sensor.
The polarization capabilities are derived from the sensor’s unique 4-way polarized filter array, which consists of four separate polarizing filters – angled at 0°, 45°, 90°, and 135° – that have been arranged in a regular pattern across the sensor. Read more ›

New 4K trilinear color line scan camera has 10 GigE interface

Image AI has rolled out a second version of its SW-4000TL trilinear color line scan camera – this one featuring a backwards-compatible 10 GigE interface.
