Polarization Cameras for Remote Applications
4D Technology CorporationRequest Info
PolarCam™ snapshot micropolarizer cameras capture images of multiple polarized angles from each video frame, enabling a range of image enhancement techniques and polarimetric measurements. Small, fast and field-proven, these unique cameras suppress or boost data content without image blur, for applications in image enhancement, industrial monitoring, remote sensing, stress measurement and more.
Proprietary micropolarizer technology enables the PolarCam’s broad spectral response, wide angular bandwidth and high extinction ratio. The micropolarizer array is bonded directly to the sensor and includes no moving parts, providing a fully solid state, Division of Focal Plane (DoFP) configuration.
High-resolution PolarCam cameras are available with 0.29, 1.4, 1.8 and 3.8 mega-pixel sensors. The video rate of up to 259 full frames per second ensures fast capture of quickly changing scenes. The CMOS high speed PolarCam can provide up to 170 frames/second at its full 1248 x 1082 resolution. Using customizable regions of interest the CMOS cameras provide frame rates in the kilohertz range.
Optional PolarView software provides real-time display and calculation of key polarization parameters, including Degree of Linear Polarization (DoLP), Angle of Linear Polarization (AoLP), linear Stokes parameters (S0, S1 and S2) and more. Use the many included tools to process and analyze the data, then save images and movies of each parameter for comprehensive analysis.
Choose from a variety of accessories, including workstation kits, mounts and lenses. Mobility accessories enable use in remote applications, including a long-life battery, mobile cart, telescoping tripod stand and 1" format Macro Lens.
4D Technology can also provide complete illumination and imaging solutions based on the PolarCam.
