When it comes to the relative advantages of CMOS versus CCD images, it seems that the debate has continued for as long as most people can remember. Since there is no definitive conclusion in sight, it’s not surprising that the answer is elusive, as the topic isn’t static. Not only is technology advancing, but markets […]
CCD Camera Lens Offers Real Time Alignment
Researchers have developed a lens that simulates the human eye and is better able to align a theodolite system. A theodolite system is a “an instrument used in the testing, alignment, and building of various systems ranging from a single optical component to an entire instrument.” This device offers a precise way to measure both […]
Optical Encoders Improve Zoom Accuracy
Photographers understand the need for zoom lenses on their cameras as do operators of cameras in commercial applications. Consider the camera phone with its digital or optical zoom – or in some cases, both. What are the differences in the zooms? An optical zoom changes the effective focal length of the camera lens using either […]
High-tech Automotive Camera Technology
High performance vehicles typically bring with them high performance technologies such as back up cameras, lane drift sensors and other in-car products to make driving safer. Optical technologies such as ghosting lenses that are suitable for CMOS imagers and miniature fisheye lenses that offer a field of view of up to 200 degrees can help […]
What’s Better? CMOS or CCD?
The debate continues on which is best; CMOS or CCD sensors. In today’s cameras, CMOS lenses are more typically used as they allow for a more complex imaging effect and for the shooting of 1080p video. Traditionally, CCD sensors had been believed to have captured and produced higher-quality images with less visual distortion. CCD sensors, […]
Pathogen Movement Measured by CMOS Cameras
Technology plays a role is so many aspects of our lives and now researchers are using imaging technology to examine the pathogen that causes “African sleeping sickness” also known as trypanoosmiasis. This epidemic takes the lives of more than 30,000 annually and can also infect and kill entire herds of cattle and buffalo. The medications […]
