PRESS RELEASE

Model 4100H hyperspectral camera

HinaLea Imaging, a leading international solutions provider of hyperspectral imaging technology, will present its fully autonomous high-resolution Model 4100H hyperspectral camera at the SPIE Photonics Europe Exhibition on April 24-25 at the Strasbourg Convention and Exhibition Centre in Strasbourg, France.

SPIE Photonics Europe is the only European cross-disciplinary optics and photonics event covering the most significant photonics technologies—from digital optics to quantum technologies to attosecond science. Topics covered in the conference include 3D printed optics, photonic glasses, optical biopolymers, and unconventional optical imaging.

HinaLea Imaging will be located in Hall RHIN at Booth B510, where the easy-to-use, handheld Model 4100H will be demonstrated. The Model 4100H is a high-precision camera with a built-in illumination source that captures high-resolution snap-shot images, yielding a spectrum at each pixel for the visible through near-IR (400 – 1000 nm) wavelength range in up to 550 bands. The portable Model 4100H can be used for nearly any application and features a fully programmable wavelength selection with fast data capture and no trade-off between spatial and spectral resolution.

The Model 4100H was awarded the SPIE 2017 Prism Award for Photonics Innovation in the Imaging and Cameras category and was recognized as the first device to capture and process a full multi-megapixel hyperspectral data cube without the need for external processing. HinaLea’s intelligent imaging solutions address specific problems across a variety of industries, including medical diagnostics, precision agriculture, biomedical imaging, machine vision and more.

“Portability and especially a hand-held hyperspectral system, that includes a light source, data storage, and an on-board screen, is no longer The Holy Grail,” said Kevin Lynch, Sales Director, Europe of HinaLea Imaging. “Our goal is to remove major barriers of adoption and unleash the full value of hyperspectral imaging with an affordable, compact, and easy-to-use spectral imaging solution for a wide array of critical applications.”
