UK imaging companies win Queen's Awards for Enterprise

Share this on social media:

On the Queen's 90th birthday, several UK photonics companies have won Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, including those supplying imaging technology.

Specialised Imaging and Vision RT both received a 2016 Queen’s Award, which honours outstanding achievement in international trade, innovation and sustainable development.

Specialised Imaging was recognised for its Kirana ultra high-speed video camera, which captures images at a frame rate of up to up to five million frames per second.

Launched in late 2012, the Kirana incorporates a hybrid image sensor that can deliver high resolution and high speed simultaneously – the full resolution of the video camera is maintained at all speeds.

The camera offers comprehensive triggering facilities, highly accurate timing control and a wide range of output signals, coupled with a software package that simplifies image capture and analysis for scientific research applications.

Vision RT, based in London, won for its AlignRT product for surface guided radiation therapy (SGRT). SGRT is a form of radiation therapy during which the patient’s surface, and hence their position in 3D, is tracked in real time both before and during treatment.

AlignRT is a video-based tracking system, which alerts the user if the patient moves beyond a predefined tolerance.
