NIR Windowing Camera comes with image analysis software.

Press Release Summary:

Near-infrared (NIR) Windowed Snapshot MiniCamera SU320MSW-1.7RT is offered with software that allows control of high-speed windowing functions. Standalone, executable software options include control of 4 preset regions of interest in center of frame. Enabling capture of continuous streaming video at speeds to 10,000 fps, PC-based image acquisition, analysis, storage, and retrieval software can apply one point non-uniformity correction to captured images.

Sensors Unlimited Upgrades Image Analysis Software for Near-IR Windowing MiniCams

March 21, 2005 - Princeton, NJ - Sensors Unlimited, Inc. (SUI) leaders in near-infrared (NIR) cameras and shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging systems and software, announces their newly enhanced software which allows control of the high speed windowing functions on the NIR Windowed Snapshot MiniCamera SU320MSW-1.7RT. This software, an upgrade to the proprietary SUI Image Analysis Software, is provided at no additional charge when paired with any new SWIR camera purchased from SUI. The new enhancement allows full operational control of the SU320MSW-1.7RT MiniCamera's windowing features.

The standalone, executable software options include full control of four preset regions of interest (ROI) or windows in the center of the frame. Alternatively, variable windows can be established by the user through this new software interface. The user may select the position, size (from a 320x256 pixel window down to a 16 x 16 window) and shape (square or rectangle). The enhanced software permits capture of continuous streaming video at high speeds up to 10,000 frames per second with the added ability to apply one point non-uniformity correction (NUC) to captured images. The user may also perform image enhancements (e.g. histogram equalization, etc.) on captured images and save the images in a movie format with or without NUCs and/or enhancements.

The easy to use, PC-based image acquisition, analysis, storage and retrieval software includes line profiles, region histograms and spot meter ROI display features. It works with National Instruments 1422 (RS-1422) and 1428 Frame grabber cards with CameraLink ® compatible interface, utilizing the LabVIEW(TM) Run-Time Engine 6.1. Compatible with Windows 2000 or Windows XP, Sensors Unlimited's advanced image analysis software records, plays back and stores AVI movies of SWIR image sequences.

Ideal for near-infrared imaging applications such as image capture of fast-moving objects, SWIR motion analysis, and thermal imaging of combustion or rocket plumes. Can also be used for pulsed laser beam profiling, machine vision, or other applications where advanced windowing test and functionality is required.
