Bandpass Filters

Omega Optical’s (Brattleboro, VT) newly-launched RapidBand stock program provides fast delivery for hundreds of bandpass filter combinations in a standard 25 mm diameter ring that is only 3.5 mm thick. RapidBand filters are constructed by combining longpass and shortpass edges produced at 10 nm increments from 400 nm to 700 nm. These are assembled in a proprietary air-spaced ring designed to meet the size and quality requirements for many optical systems. Longpass and shortpass edge filters can also be ordered as RapidEdge filters, and are mounted in the same 25 mm ring.

System-on-Chip (SoC)

Ambarella (Santa Clara, CA) has announced the H2 and H12 camera System-on-Chips (SoCs) for sports and flying cameras. H2 offers 4K Ultra HD H.265/HEVC video at 60 frames per second and 4K AVC video at 120 frames per second. The H2’s 10-bit High Dynamic Range (HDR) video processing handles high-contrast scenes. H12 targets mainstream cameras and provides 4K Ultra HD HEVC video at 30 frames per second. Both technologies support live streaming of a low-delay, Full HD video stream for wireless monitoring and camera control. For Free Info Visit: http://info.hotims.com/61059-146
