"Pixim® technology" chosen for 500 Camera Port Security installation

About Pixim: Pixim Inc. has developed unique imaging technology that revolutionizes the way video cameras capture and process images. Unlike traditional image capture technologies, where each pixel cannot adjust to highlights and lowlights in the same scene, Pixim's patented Digital Pixel System® technology empowers hundreds of thousands of pixels to act like individual cameras constantly self-adjusting. This all-digital system enables Pixim-powered cameras to efficiently capture the whole picture, regardless of lighting condition or application - thus securing the highest resolution, natural color and clarity, while automatically eliminating image-compromising visual noise (e.g., glare, reflections). The result is more than superb image quality; it is accurate, actionable information that gives users the strength of certainty. Seawolf D8800C Specifications.

In Day mode (well lit, colour) mechanism automatically positions IR-CUT optical filter between Lens and 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.

In Night mode (low light, monochrome) mechanism automatically removes IR-CUT optical filter to allow Infrared radiation to pass boosting low light and Infrared sensitivity, the result is significantly better night images using inbuilt Infrared Illuminator or with Infrared rich light sources. Infrared Response without Infrared filter is ~ 700 to ~ 1100 nm better than a 'Security Camera notch IR Filter', additional Security Camera Infrared Night Vision information.

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

Pixim DPS Image Sensor Camera

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.

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

CCTV Camera

  • 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.
