Out now: 12.2 MP Alvium 1800 USB camera with rolling shutter sensor and small pixel size
Allied Vision adds another USB3 Vision camera with a rolling shutter to the Alvium 1800 series.
The Alvium 1800 U-1240 incorporates Sony’s back-illuminated IMX226 CMOS sensor that enables high-quality imaging at 12.2 megapixel and 29 frames per second.
Due to the pixel size of 1.85 μm, the camera combines the high image-quality with a small optical format und thus offers a very good price/performance ratio. Read more ›
Uniquely flexible high resolution ToF sensor for next generation 3D vision systems
Teledyne e2v announces Hydra3D™, its new Time-of-Flight (ToF) CMOS image sensor, tailored for 3D detection and distance measurement. The sensor supports the latest industrial applications, including vision guided robotics, logistics and automated guided vehicles. Hydra3D’s high resolution and flexible configuration, combined with its on-chip HDR, make it ideal for outdoor applications such as surveillance, ITS, building construction and drones.
The sensor features a 10 µm three-tap cutting-edge pixel, designed with Teledyne e2v’s proprietary CMOS technology and produced by Tower Semiconductor, the leader in high-value analog semiconductor foundry solutions. Read more ›
‘Flex-Eye’ – a new and innovative approach in customized multispectral area scan cameras
AI is now introducing Flex-Eye – a new and innovative camera concept giving vision system designers the ability to customize the size and location of wavebands in JAI’s Fusion Series 2-CMOS and 3-CMOS prism-based multispectral cameras.
By combining the Flex-Eye customization process with our existing Fusion Series prism-based cameras, vision system designers can now tailor make a multispectral camera that looks at specific visible and near infrared waveband ranges to meet the exact requirements of their vision applications.

Resolution Test Target for comparative measurements for systems of the same type
Optical calibration and resolution testing are critical metrics in understanding and optimizing any optical system. Test targets (also called test charts, test samples or resolution test patterns) are used to determine the efficiency of optical systems. They are used to determine resolution, MTF, depth of field, distortion and telecentricity.
It is necessary to test and calibrate every single system for comparative measurements, especially when dealing with several measuring systems of the same type. Read more ›
Compact TFL-Mount lenses for high-resolution cameras with 4/3” sensors
The resolution of modern sensors is increasing with every generation. Pixels are getting smaller and while the sensor itself is getting bigger.
It shows that the standard C-Mount is too small to provide a high image quality over the whole sensor size. While F-Mount bayonet is not stable enough and M42 does not allow compact lens designs.
In contrast, the new standardized TFL-Mount with its M35x0.75 thread and 17.52 back flange distance (same as C-Mount) is ideal for large-format compact lenses. Read more ›
European Imaging Academy goes virtual
Each year we welcome over 2000 people to the training sessions and education events offered by the European Imaging Academy across many countries in Europe.
In view of the current Covid-19 situation and travel restrictions, the European Imaging Academy now opens a VIRTUAL CLASSROOM and offers a whole range of possibilities to support you remotely with many e-learning courses on a wide range of topics. Read more ›
