They employ Bluevision Core Technology, an optical signal processing based on prism spectroscopic technologies and handle from visible light area to SWIR (Short Wave Infrared) area by separating different wavelength or area. Those cameras will provide effective discriminant criteria to various non-destructive inspections such as solid state wafer, fruits, food, tablets or other packaged goods or plastic recycling. In addition to those cameras, they supply compact HDTV cameras and Auto Focus HDTV cameras mainly for surveillance or other general purposes. Learn More
