SWIR Vision Systems Introduces First Commercial Full-HD SWIR Cameras
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, March 20, 2019 – SWIR Vision Systems Inc., today announced the commercial launch, production and sales of the AcurosTM high definition, short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera. This new class
of SWIR band cameras, the first featuring Quantum Dot sensor technology, will compete directly with incumbent
InGaAs SWIR cameras, delivering higher resolution, lower cost points, and global exportability to the Vision
Industry. The introduction of 1920 x 1080 HD cameras brings full 2.1MP high definition imaging to commercial
"AcurosTM CQDTM Full HD cameras deliver more then 6X the pixel resolution compared to InGaAs VGA cameras,
delivering higher field-of-view and superior clarity to users with the need to resolve the finest details”, said
George Wildeman, CEO of SWIR Vision Systems. “Our intent is to drive down the cost per megapixel in SWIR
imaging, disrupting the cost and performance curve for vision systems designers,” said Wildeman.
The company will exhibit their family of high resolution cameras operating over the 400-1700nm spectral band
at the AUTOMATE trade fair, in Chicago, on April 8-11, demonstrating the camera’s utility and value for silicon
inspection, machine vision, surveillance and security systems, hyperspectral imaging and other core SWIR
applications. The company manufactures and ships the Acuros cameras globally from its operations center in
Research Triangle Park, NC, USA.
