FluxData Licenses RIT Imaging Patent

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 18, 2011 — Multispectral imaging systems provider FluxData Inc. has licensed patent No. 7,554,586 from the Rochester Institute of Technology, titled “System and Method for Scene Image Acquisition and Spectral Estimation Using a Wide-Band Multi-Channel Image Capture.”

Developed at the Munsell Color Science Lab at RIT, the technology will allow FluxData to develop low-cost, highly color accurate camera systems for a range of applications and markets, including defense, security, surveillance, entertainment, medical and life sciences, industrial vision and agriculture.

FluxData plans to introduce the technology in a new line of Better Color camera systems and software applications in the third quarter of 2011. Additionally, the company will integrate the Better Color technology into its existing FD-1665 3CCD multispectral camera product line as an option to provide better color discrimination and accuracy than in existing RGB 3CCD cameras.

“It is very exciting to see our invention developed into a product,” said Dr. Roy S. Berns, co-inventor and director of the Munsell laboratory. “My research goal was to bridge the gap between RGB and hyperspectral imaging, providing a practical approach to both improved color accuracy and spectral estimation.”

hyperspectral imaging
Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
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...
