Image processing with lookup tables (LUT): Make the (almost) invisible visible

With a lookup table (LUT) it is easy to apply characteristic curves to digital images. A LUT is a table which assigns an output value to every possible input value. Using LUTs has the advantage that calculations can be done very fast. So you can use a LUT, for example, to make even slight shading clearly visible.

Would you like a bit longer? Long exposures with CMOS sensors

CMOS sensors and long exposure – impossible, isn't it? On the contrary! With the 2 megapixel sensors from e2v, long exposures of up to 10 seconds are possible with a CMOS sensor for the first time.

As a result, the sensors represent an interesting and cost-effective alternative to CCD sensors. To enable you to use this special IDS feature, our TechTip provides a detailed description of the procedure.

Multi integration mode: Multiple exposures within one image

The multi integration mode of the 2 MP CMOS sensor from e2v used in the USB 3 uEye families opens up exciting new opportunities in machine vision.

Affordable alternative: Area scan camera with CMOSIS sensor versus line scan cameras

The USB 3 uEye CP models with the latest CMOSIS 4.2 megapixel sensors with revision 3 (UI-3370CP) now offer a triggered line mode. This means that expensive line scan cameras can simply be replaced in many fields of application by the more affordable and extremely powerful UI-3370CP area scan camera.
