The Verdehyperspectral camera is designed to collect an entire hypercube in one image using Simultaneous Hyperspectral Imaging (SHI) technology, with times as low as 3 msec. A patented 2-D dispersion element developed with the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) captures all spatial and spectral information simultaneously in the image without averaging or repeated experiments, enabling characterizing of both static and dynamic events. The camera is suitable for field work and industrial quality control involving color monitoring and control, such as plasma monitoring in semiconductor foundries, color quality control for fabrics, foods, displays, and more. The camera comes standard with a C-mount adapter for microscope-based spectral imaging of fluorescence phenomena.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
HORIBA Scientific Announces New Hyperspectral Imaging Camera
HORIBA Scientific, an innovator in the manufacture of high performance scientific and analytical equipment, announces the launch of their new Verde Hyperspectral camera designed to measure a complete image and spectral information simultaneously.
Verde is the first hyperspectral camera which simultaneously captures the complete spectrum of every point in an image in a single measurement in as little as 3 milliseconds. Earlier hyperspectral cameras needed to collect multiple images at different wavelengths or sweep a line across the image to collect the hyperspectral hypercube of data. This meant that not all points or wavelengths were recorded at the same time, making analysis of transient phenomena exceedingly difficult.
Verde uses a patented 2-D dispersion element developed with the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) to capture all spatial and spectral information in a single image. No averaging or repeated experiments are required even in the case of dynamic samples such as live organisms or combustion reactions. Spatial and spectral ranges can be optimized for specific applications.
VERDE works without either scanning or switching filters, using HORIBA Scientific's proprietary patented Simultaneous Hyperspectral Imaging (SHI) technology to collect the entire hypercube in one image. With a live display mode, it is easy to exactly identify the field being measured.
In addition to its simple point-and-shoot format, there are no moving parts in the VERDE. The handheld and robust design makes it suitable for field work and industrial quality control environments involving color monitoring and control. Examples include plasma monitoring in semiconductor foundries, color quality control for fabrics, paints, foods, computer monitors and TVs, etc.
The VERDE camera comes standard with a c-mount adapter for microscope-based spectral imaging of fluorescence phenomena. It can characterize both static and dynamic events because of its 'single shot capture' capability. VERDE also preserves quantitative information so that species that may have similar spectral profiles but differing emission intensities, perhaps due to varying dye absorption, can be distinguished.
Verde is currently available. For more information, please go to: www.verdecam.com or contact HORIBA Scientific via email at: [email protected].
