TruTag Technologies, a leading technology company in the hyperspectral imaging space, has announced that it will exhibit at SPIE Photonics West, January 27 – February 1, 2018 at The Moscone Centre in San Francisco, California. TruTag’s handheld hyperspectral imager won the Prism Awards for the best new imaging and camera innovation in 2017.
SPIE Photonics West is the world’s largest annual event for the photonics, laser and biomedical optics industries. Thousands of scientists, engineers, and executives will convene at the most comprehensive technical conference and exhibition spanning biophotonics for brain research and healthcare, lasers for research and advanced manufacturing, sensors and camera systems, imaging and displays, communications and optoelectronics, plus the core optical components that enable many of today’s consumer products.
At Booth #65, visitors will have the opportunity to learn how the world’s first affordable, high-resolution, handheld autonomous hyperspectral camera can be utilised to solve many of today’s medical imaging, machine vision and quality inspection industry challenges. TruTag Technologies Model 4100 is a rugged, handheld instrument with a built-in illumination source. Ideal for field and factory use, it captures a 2D snapshot image of an object, and the spectra at each pixel in the visible from 450 to 850 nm in up to 400 bands in 1 nm steps. Users can pan and zoom the image via the colour touch screen display and even view a video of the entire hypercube. TruTag’s hyperspectral imager is the first device to both capture and process a full multi-megapixel hyperspectral datacube without the need for external processing. It dramatically improves upon existing multispectral imagers, which trade off spectral resolution for spatial resolution. A visible-near IR (450 to 1,100 nm) version will be available shortly.
TruTag will also exhibit at SPIE Photonics West BiOS Booth #8343 which takes place January 27-28 in the Moscone Centre’s West Hall.
