TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 11, 2016 — The Prime Scientific CMOS camera from camera manufacturer Photometrics has been named a finalist in R&D Magazine’s 2016 R&D 100 Awards. The Prime camera is a 4.2-MP sCMOS camera and is the first in the industry to actively defeat the negative impact of Poisson noise in low-light images. Built-in mathematical intelligence quantitatively restores signals that are buried in photon noise. The camera's FPGA-based embedded signal processing engine enables powerful signal restoration significantly increasing low-light image clarity. "The touchstone of our 30-year corporate history has been preserving excellent photometric performance, while pioneering the next generation of scientific imaging innovation," said Rachit Mohindra, product manager of Photometrics. "We're honored to be recognized by an award that has been given to some of the most influential products of the past century and look forward to continuing to provide our customers with products that advance research." The awards honor the 100 most innovative technologies and services, which will be recognized at the 54th Annual R&D 100 Awards on November 3 in Washington, D.C.
