FluxData Licenses Imaging Patent

Photonics Spectra
Jul 2011
Multispectral imaging systems provider FluxData Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., has licensed Patent No. 7554586 titled “System and Method for Scene Image Acquisition and Spectral Estimation Using a Wide-Band Multi-Channel Image Capture,” from Rochester Institute of Technology. Developed at the Munsell Color Science Lab at the institute, the technology will allow FluxData to develop low-cost, highly color accurate camera systems for a range of markets, including defense, security, surveillance, entertainment, medical and life sciences, industrial vision and agriculture. The company plans to introduce the technology in a new line of Better Color camera systems and software applications in the third quarter of 2011. It will integrate the Better Color technology into its existing FD-1665 three-CCD multispectral camera product line.


GLOSSARY
multispectral imaging
Multispectral Imaging: Creation of an image where each pixel contains more than three spectral data points, typically four to 20. This is contrasted with a standard color camera that only captures three spectral data points (called RGB), or hyperspectral cameras, which capture hundreds of spectral data points. Traditional multispectral cameras captured four data points: RGB and an NIR band. Nowadays multispectral cameras are available as commercial off-the-shelf products, with 12 custom bands...
