When illumination is adequate for colour movable Infrared CUT Optical Filter is positioned between Lens & Image Sensor to exclude Infrared radiation that would otherwise adversely affect colour reproduction, this ensures colour rendition not possible with ordinary non-filtered or notch-filter type Day/Night cameras.

When illumination is low Optical Filter is removed to allow Infrared to pass enhancing Infrared and low light sensitivity, the result is significantly better low light images when used with an Infrared Illuminator or Infrared rich light sources. Infrared Response without Infrared filter is ~ 700 to ~ 1000 nm better than a 'notch' filter, additional information here.

Every Pixel Tells A Story

Pixim-Powered cameras provide the surveillance market with something truly unique—the Digital Pixel System ® technology. Not only is Pixim’s technology the only all-digital image solution, but it is the only technology to employ hundreds of thousands of pixels each acting like individual cameras. These constantly self-adjusting pixels eliminate image-compromising visual noise and deliver high-resolution, natural colour and clarity. The result is simply unparalleled image quality regardless of lighting conditions or applications.

Pixim’s patented Digital Pixel System ® technology marks a fundamental breakthrough in imaging technology. Building upon technology developed at Stanford University in the 1990s, Pixim has created an image capture and processing system that provides high-quality pictures with enhanced dynamic range. Greater dynamic range significantly improves image quality in scenes consisting of both bright and dark areas.

Pixim Inside


Click for enlarged image

The core invention in the Digital Pixel System technology is the inclusion of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) within each pixel of the image sensor. The ADC translates the light signal into a digital value at the immediate point of capture, thus minimizing signal degradation and cross-talk in the array and allowing for greater noise reduction methods. Once the data is captured in a digital format, a variety of digital signal processing techniques are used for optimal image reproduction.

Analog CCD Camera


Click for enlarged image

All pixels in the array have the exact same shutter speed
Result:

  • Bright areas overexposed

  • Dark areas underexposed

Because each pixel has its own analog-to-digital converter and the information generated is captured and processed independently, each pixel in effect acts as its own camera. The exposure time for each pixel is adjusted to handle the unique lighting conditions at that pixel location in the image sensor array. A product built with the Digital Pixel System platform essentially has hundreds of thousands of individual cameras, each of which produces the best image possible. These images are then combined to create a high quality video frame or picture.

Pixim-Powered Camera


Click for enlarged image

  • Pixels in bright areas automatically adjust to eliminate overexposure

  • Pixel in dark areas automatically adjust to eliminate underexposure

  • Only all-digital solution

  • Every pixel is a self-adjusting camera

In contrast, other technologies typically set one exposure time for the frame and sample each pixel at that time – resulting in images with some pixels that are underexposed (too dark) and some that are overexposed (too bright).

Pixim’s Video Imaging System, is comprised of a digital image sensor and a digital image processor. The digital image sensor and digital image processor function much like the eyes and brain in humans, with two-way real-time interactivity to capture the highest quality image possible. Just as the brain of a person walking into a dark room instructs the eyes to open the pupil to allow in more light, the digital image processor loads new code into the sensor to alter not only exposure times but the actual image capture algorithms. The result: the best possible picture given the specific image characteristics and lighting conditions.
