IQ mobile hyperspectral camera

Specim has released its IQ mobile hyperspectral camera designed for industries ranging from food and health to forensic investigation, recycling, art, and agriculture. The camera is ideally suited to the needs of OEM industry for building custom applications. This has been made easy by Specim’s application development tool.

In agriculture, farmers can use the camera to screen their crops for pest infestations. Rather than routinely treating crops, they will be able to treat them just where it is needed. In the art world, immediate forgery detection could become a routine part of the art sales process, eliminating dispute and costly court proceedings.

Hyperspectral imaging combines spectroscopy and digital imaging. By enabling spectral analysis down to the pixel level, the physical and chemical make-up of both large and small samples can be determined.

Until now, the complexity and bulky size of the equipment and lack of real time information have limited its use in industrial applications. Specim supplies a full line of industrial products complemented now by the IQ mobile camera.
