THE UNIQUE VIS+NIR SNAPSHOT MULTISPECTRAL CAMERA ON THE MARKET

Very Compact Multispectral Cameras

The TOUCAN Multispectral camera is specially designed to allow high integration of VIS+NIR multispectral systems. This lightweight (less than 180g) and very small footprint (52x63x40mm) camera splits the image into 10 spectral bands on a very large range (400-900nm). Made by hybridization of a custom Bayer-like mosaic filter on a commercial 4.2 MPixel CMOS Sensor, it allows extracting the spectrum on each point of the image.

Software Development Kit (SDK)

COLOR SHADES® LAB is the SDK for the SILIOS multispectral cameras (CMS, CMS4 and TOUCAN). It allows :

1) displaying the raw images, false color images, gray scale images or overlaid images with different indexation methods (such as "spectrum recognition"),

2) normalizing the spectral channels,

3) applying multispectral image corrections such as the crosstalk correction,

4) extracting the hypercubes.

 

COLOR SHADES® LAB runs with real time acquisition, but can also run with recorded single image or series of images (“replay mode”).

COLOR SHADES® LAB supports any of the SILIOS cameras and recognizes each plugged one via its S/N number. The specific spectral data of the corresponding multispectral sensor are then used for spectral corrections and treatments.  

COLOR SHADES® LAB is supplied for free with any purchased multispectral CMS/CMS4 camera.
