Model 4200 wide-field hyperspectral camera
HinaLea Imaging, a leading international solutions provider of hyperspectral imaging technology, announced that the Company will launch its Model 4200 Wide-Field Hyperspectral Camera at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) in Valencia, Spain on July 22-27, 2018. HinaLea Imaging will be exhibiting in Pavilion 5, Booth 4.
IGARSS 2018 is the 38th annual symposium of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). IGARSS is now one of the largest international events in remote sensing and provides an ideal forum for researchers and professionals to obtain up-to-date information about the status of Earth Observation technologies.
HinaLea Imaging has introduced their new Model 4200 hyperspectral camera which features various lens options to match field of view and working distance requirements for laboratory and industrial applications. This new configurable system enables users in both research and industry to precisely tailor the instrument to their needs, while utilizing HinaLea’s innovative technology capable of single-step capture of images with dynamically-defined spectral bands at high spatial and spectral resolutions.
The HinaLea system is the only front-staring band sequential hyperspectral system on the market which can scan the whole VIS-NIR (400 – 1000 nm) spectrum with high spatial and spectral resolutions at an affordable price point. The Model 4200 can also be programmed to scan only a subset of bands, and this subset can be dynamically controlled based on the object to be imaged. Resultant scans can be shorter with generally smaller data sets, saving customers time and money.
The new Model 4200 is ideal for a wide range of laboratory and industrial applications, ranging from basic scientific and biomedical research to many industrial uses. While enabling a variety of use cases, the instrument can identify specific components and materials as well as verification of product quality/identification of defects (color matching, trueness and uniformity). This new and highly configurable system allows users to precisely tailor the instrument to their specific needs, while utilizing HinaLea’s innovative technology capable of single-step capture of images with dynamically-defined spectral bands at high spatial and spectral resolutions.
With the Model 4200, users benefit from:
· Contiguous, high-resolution imaging – The HinaLea system is the only staring hyperspectral system on the market that can scan the whole VIS-NIR spectrum with high spatial and spectral resolutions.
· Wavelength selectivity – The HinaLea™ system can be programmed to scan only a subset of bands, and this subset can be dynamically controlled based on the object to be imaged.
· Affordability – HinaLea’s proprietary technology and manufacturing adaptation is based on a semiconductor fabrication process which makes the Model 4200 accessible to more users at never-before seen price points. Configurable scans can be much faster with generally smaller data sets, saving customers time and money.
Features and benefits include:
· Staring Hyperspectral Imaging – No mechanical scanning is required, resulting in a lower-cost, reliable system.
· True Hyperspectral Imaging – Unlike color-filter arrays, with the HinaLea Model 4200, there is no tradeoff between the number of spectral bands and effective spatial resolution.
· Customizable – HinaLea works with selected, strategic partners to optimize the performance criteria for specific applications and will also consider OEM models.
In addition, Hinalea will exhibit and demonstrate the easy-to-use handheld Model 4100H, 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.
“Once again our outstanding product development team has listened to customers and developed and created a valued-added solution to help them be successful,” said Kevin Lynch, Hyperspectral Imaging Sales Director, EMEA & APAC of HinaLea Imaging. “The 4200 is a demonstration of our firm commitment to long-term customer partnerships and joint product development across the hyperspectral imaging value chain.”
