TEL AVIV, Israel, July 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Unispectral, developer of the ColorIR™ filter, today announced the availability of a new Evaluation Kit for its tunable NIR filter and camera.

The core product consists of a tunable MEMS filter assembled on a camera module. RaspberryPi is used to capture parameters and interface by USB/WiFi to PC or Mobile device. SDK is included to develop additional applications.

"Our excellent team is proud to roll out this tunable filter which connects seeing with sensing. It makes spectral cameras accessible for mass-market platforms. The market strives to find an effective solution for adding spectral information to cameras and we believe our technology offers the best blend of performance, and cost," said Ariel Raz, CEO of Unispectral.

The ColorIR camera captures multiple frames in different NIR wavelengths, filtered by a miniature Fabry–Pérot optical cavity MEMS. This unique solution breaks the price for legacy spectral cameras, thereby enabling new markets and use cases.

Different Use Cases of ColorIR™

Security Market: Facial Authentication, Access Control, Payment Terminals.
Smartphone Camera: image enhancement, low light and shadow picture corrections
Medical Market: Remote health inspection
Agriculture: Fruit inspection, Pesticide detection
Industrial: Production line inspection
Vehicle: DMS

Unispectral ColorIR EVK

ColorIR EVK is offered to customers for both performance evaluation and application development. It captures the filtered images while processing is done locally on the RaspberryPi, or exported to a PC via USB/WiFi. It includes a 4.3" touchscreen for easy operation.


The ColorIR™ tunable Mems EVK is available for pre-order. Shipping is planned for end of July.
