OCI new handheld hyperspectral imagers, lightest snapshot hyperspectral imagers, exciting possibilities at 363 grams!

OCI Handheld Hyperspectral Imagers


Among these models, the OCI-2000 is a snapshot imager, with which you simply take a snapshot (like taking a picture with your own RGB color camera), and the spectral information is acquired for each pixel as well. In this case, you will obtain cubic data with a single shot without any moving part. For the OCI-1000, the object or the camera needs to be moving to achieve the hyper spectral imaging and it is used in the scanning mode. The OCI-1000™ and OCI-2000™ are the only handheld hyperspectral imagers on the market which acquire full VNIR hyperspectral data at video rate

OCI™-2000 Snapshot Handheld Hyperspectral Imager

OCI-2000_handheld_snapshot_hyperspectral_imagerBaySpec’s Compact OCI-2000™ Snapshot hyperspectral Imager brings for the first time high performance hyperspectral/multispectral real-time imaging in a compact handheld form factor weighing only 0.8 lbs.(363 grams). The imager acquires full, VIS-NIR hyperspectral/multispectral data with high spectral resolution at one snapshot. Continuous hyperspectral data capturing can happen at video rates.

Key Features

Hyperspectal imaging at the video rates
No scanning required
Scalable to low cost, high volume production

Hyperspectral/multispectral cameras, compared to traditional cameras, divide the light spectrum into many small wavelength bands. Therefore, a Hyperspectral camera can capture the spectral fingerprints as spectral signatures from an object. These spectral signatures give very detailed information about the material constitutions of the imaged object.

Hyperspectral/multispectral imaging considerably improves the identification and classification of objects and is today recognized as a key enabling technology for next-generation industrial inspection, medical diagnosis and security applications.

Snapshot (non-scanning) hyperspectral/multispectral imaging is a method of capturing spectral images during a single integration time of a detector array, so that no scanning is involved. One of the major advantages of snapshot imaging is that it avoids motion artifacts, thereby simplifying the data processing and improving the image processing time.

(2) OCI-OEM (OCI-1000-OEM or OCI-2000-OEM)

In addition to the handheld model, OCI-OEM model is also offered with which the optical engine of the imager is in its own module separated from the controller.

(3) OCI-UAV (OCI-1000-UAV, or OCI-2000-UAV)

The OCI-UAV model is designed with light weight for UAV applications only.
