Vieworks VN-25MX CMOS Pixel Shift Camera (225 MP)
With its innovative design, the VN-25MX provides digital images of resolutions up to 225 megapixels at 8 FPS or 100 megapixels at 18 FPS. The native resolution is 25 megapixels at 72 FPS using a global shuttered CMOS imaging sensor.
Pixel Shift Technology is used in to increase an Industrial Camera’s resolution many times that of the camera’s native (non-pixel shift image) resolution. The increase in resolution is accomplished by shifting the sensor’s image by a fraction of a pixel. For each shift, a digital image is saved. These saved digital images are then combined into a composite (stitched) image. Application of pixel shift technology to a machine vision application typically requires the FOV (field-of-view) to remain stationary since multiple digital images (one per shift) are captured.
Not only is Pixel Shift Technology innovative, but it provides a cost-effective product for replacing multiple digital vision cameras used to produce the same resolution (225 MP) or produce a true RGB image from a single sensor with a Bayer CFA (color filter array). True RGB color (3 color plane) is produced without the typical spatial aliasing artifacts such as zippers or rainbows on a high-frequency edge. The ultra-high resolution of the VN-25MX is ideal or the flat panel inspection, document archiving, PCB inspection, microscopy, film scanning or any other applications where the object for imaging is not moving.
