PixelCam 4 Band VIS+NIR – 4MP


  • Detailed Product Description:

PixelCam multispectral cameras provide live imaging of 3-9 spectral bands at video rates. Simultaneous multi-channel “snapshot” acquisition delivers rich, real-time data without scene change or pixel shift. Custom dichroic filter arrays are integrated into the focal plane array at wafer-level to create robust linear and area sensors that extract high-contrast spectral information at specific visible and infrared wavelengths. This breakthrough technology enables easy integration into a handheld, mobile and aerial cameras – all with the same frame rate, size, weight, and power consumption as monochrome cameras.

PixelCam cameras are fabricated to user-defined wavelengths. The unique combination of high-speed, multi-band imaging, and small form factor supports a variety of dedicated applications including agriculture, biomedical, machine vision, surveillance and authentication, and unmanned systems. Customized OEM multispectral camera modules are engineered from the wafer-level to deliver scalable volume production and easy integration into handheld and portable devices. Standard PixelCam camera modules are available for 4-band and 6-band RGB-NIR and SWIR wavelengths.

The Pixelcam VIS NIR 4 band Spectral Imager is based on the Adimec Opal 4MP camera. This snapshot multispectral imager, spectral response shown below, has 4 unique bands in a custom “Bayer” type filter. The RGB and NIR filters bin 4 pixels (2X2). Applications include ICG imaging, industrial QC and Security. Users can also use a “prefilter” to further define the bands to utilize the camera with narrower bands. Reach out to our applications engineers for the details.


PIXELTEQ’s micro-patterned optical filters, like PixelCam, are covered by patents in micro-patterning technologies (US patent 7648808) and pixel filter array on substrate (either glass or directly on sensor/detector wafers) methodologies (US patent 6638668).
