FluxData, Inc. introduces a new line of customizable multispectral 3CCD cameras

June 19, 2008
Date Announced: 19 Jun 2008 FluxData, Inc. is proud to announce the release of the FD-1665 series of 3-CCD cameras. The FD-1665 platform allows three CCD sensors fitted with customer specified optical filters to simultaneously capture images through a single lens.The FD-1665 is offered in 1.4, 2 and 5 megapixel resolutions using Sony ICX-285, ICX-274, and ICX-625 CCDs, respectively. Users can select a pre-configured 3, 5, 7, or 9 channel camera or configure an application specific 3-CCD system with any combination of color and monochrome sensors and custom filters. Built upon a patented design, the FD-1665 allows the use of standard Nikon F-mount lenses, correcting the image at each sensor to precisely match alignment, focus, magnification and reduce chromatic aberration introduced by the prism beam splitter.The FD-1665 is a flexible 3-CCD camera system that can be manufactured with any combination of narrow-band or broad-band filter coatings between 380-1000nm. This provides a performance advantage over existing RGB 3-CCD or 2-CCD RGB/NIR systems where spectral response is limited to predefined manufacturer configurations. The three separate Firewire outputs of the FD-1665 allow for high data throughput and independent control of exposure, gain and frame-rate for maintaining high signal-to-noise ratios from each sensor. The 3-CCDs can be simultaneously or sequentially triggered via software or hardware.The versatile camera design supports a wide array of applications in various markets. These include fluorescence and in-vivo imaging for medical, biotechnology, analytical and drug discovery to narrow band imaging for spectroscopy, materials analysis and detection. The three optical paths of the FD-1665 can also be configured for purposes beyond simple spectral selectivity. For example, polarization at up to three orientation angles can be measured simultaneously; identical sensors can be used for high frame rate or asynchronous capture; or three exposure ranges can be captured simultaneously for high-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging.Pano Spiliotis, CEO of FluxData, Inc. states, “The FD-1665 will provide an important opportunity to OEM’s, system integrators and end-users by giving them the ability to quickly configure a custom multi-spectral system with their own pre-defined spectral bands or filter configurations into a fully integrated system. The FD-1665 provides simultaneous, multi-channel imaging at video frame rates, a significant advantage over the sequential capture of filter-wheel and liquid-crystal based systems. Our unique optical-mechanical design and the incorporation of high quality filters allow FluxData to provide customizable multispectral imaging systems to the medical, spectroscopy, analytical, color, industrial and defense markets in a cost effective manner.”FluxData will work with customers to design a purpose-built configuration that meets their specific requirements. Standard configuration systems can be made to order for delivery in 4-6 weeks.About FluxData, Inc.:FluxData develops and manufactures analytical instrumentation for a wide range of industrial applications.
