PIXELTEQ to Demo Multispectral SWIR Sensors, Cameras

GOLDEN, CO -- PIXELTEQ will demonstrate its latest PixelCam multispectral cameras at the SPIE Defense, Security & Sensing 2013 show next week in Baltimore.

Demonstrations at PIXELTEQ booth No. 1662 will focus on multi-band (3- and 4-band) short-wave infrared (SWIR) imaging that improves contrast and visualization. PIXELTEQ will also show customized OEM modules and a variety of spectral sensors and devices for use across ultraviolet (UV), visible, and infrared (IR) applications.

Product manager Steve Smith, Ph.D., will present "Why Multispectral?" 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 30, in the demonstration area shortly after the exhibition opens. He will highlight examples of how multi-band SWIR and VIS/NIR sensors and cameras enhance a variety of defense and security applications while having the same form factor, frame rate and proportion as panchromatic cameras.

PIXELTEQ, formerly Ocean Thin Films, provides micro-patterned optical filters, sensors and cameras used by OEMs to develop multispectral devices with enhanced contrast in the same footprint as their monochrome counterparts.

PIXELTEQ, formerly Ocean Thin Films, provides OEM spectral sensing and imaging products, patterned optical filters and custom electro-optical devices for a variety of aerospace, biomedical, industrial, scientific and security applications.
