The heart of a high-speed camera is the sensor. iX Cameras designs and develops its own state-of-the-art proprietary CMOS sensors. This commitment to excellence and quality control keeps us ahead of the commercial sensors found in most high-speed cameras. Our Advanced Sensor Technology (AST) initiative first produced the 1920 x 1080 HD sensor for the i-SPEED 5 Series. The new 2072 x 1536 3.2 MPixel sensor for the i-SPEED 7 Series builds upon that success.
The newest AST sensors boast increased light sensitivity and enhanced image clarity for accurate analysis, ultra-high resolution at high speeds, and proprietary black level control for deeper blacks and low noise. We even optimized the 13.5 µm pixel size for the proper balance between high-resolution (for image clarity) and exceptional light sensitivity normally found only with larger pixels
These newest AST CMOS sensor boasts increased light sensitivity, enhanced image clarity, ultra- high-resolution at high speeds that reach 2.45 million frames/second, 12-bit dynamic range with 65dB dynamic pixel control and proprietary black level control for deeper blacks and low noise.
The iX Cameras AST program is expanding our work with our partners. Look for high-speed imaging advancement in the i-SPEED line. The i-SPEED 5 and i-SPEED 7 Series of high-speed cameras are being used in a variety of applications such as Schlieren, Fragmentation, Nano bubbles, Fluid Dynamics, PIV, and DIC.
