PHOTONIS is market leader in photon imaging and has successfully incorporated image sensors into complete cameras and camera assemblies. PHOTONIS cameras are designed with PHOTONIS detectors, while providing ease-of-use for in-depth image capture and analysis. These cameras and accessories are specifically developed with Night Vision, Homeland Security and Surveillance applications in mind. PHOTONIS offers a variety of camera options to service a wide range of detection and imaging applications. By combining the world’s best detectors directly into easy-to-use cameras, our customers are guaranteed that the images can be successfully captured, whether they are single frame or moving video.
CCD and ICCD cameras are the heart of the laser imaging systems offered by LaVision. Therefore, LaVision is continuously striving to offer the most appropriate cameras for our customer's application. All camera systems include camera head, control units, multiport TTL-I/O interface, PC and high performance software DaVis for image acquisition, processing and analysis.
LaVision's DaVis software allows complete camera function control, synchronization with other devices and peripheral device activation. All software functions are programmable via LaVision's command language (CL). CL allows the automization of complete measurement sequences including data acquisition and processing up to final result presentation and peripheral device control. Application specific software modules are available.
High-speed imaging provides detailed insight into transient phenomena. LaVision offers a range of digital (ultra) high-speed cameras and light sources operating together under advanced synchronization concepts. High-speed imaging is under complete software control for device operation, image acquisition, processing and presentation.
Thorlabs' Scientific-Grade CCD Cameras are specifically designed for microscopy and other demanding applications. Our monochrome and color scientific cameras are based on high quantum efficiency, low-noise CCD imagers, which makes them ideal for multispectral imaging, fluorescence microscopy, and other imaging techniques.
The features and options in our cameras have been chosen and optimized to benefit your research. For example, cooled cameras are available for low-light, long exposure applications. Choose from two industry-standard interfaces designed to ease integration of multiple cameras or to maximize data transfer rates. An intuitive software package, API and SDK for developers, and third-party software support provide options for custom system control and image acquisition.
Edmund Optics offers a wide range of analog or digital Cameras designed for a variety of imaging applications, including video microscopy or industrial use.
