LUCID Vision Labs has introduced a color version of its polarized version of its Phoenix camera, the PHX050S-P, which enables users to compute both color and angle of polarization information for each image pixel. The GigE Vision camera is based on Sony’s IMX250MYR polarized CMOS image sensor, which is a 5 MPixel global shutter sensor with a 3.45 μm pixel and a frame rate of up to 24 fps.
The sensor is based on the IMX250 Sony Pregius CMOS sensor with a polarizing filter added to the pixel and has four different directional polarizing filters (0°, 90°, 45°, and 135°) on every two-by-two array of pixels. Lucid Vision’s GigE Vision camera, the company said, performs on-camera processing using the four directional filters and outputs both the intensity and polarized angle of each image pixel. In addition to the polarizing filter, the camera is equipped with an RGGB Bayer filter to form a four-by-four array. Raw image data can be processed into an RGB image per polarization channel, and the deinterleaving process along with the polarization data allows for polarization visualization of a colored object.
