Living Optics Camera

Spectral imaging
at video speeds 

Image with more information and speed than previously possible. 

Living Optics Camera


Portable camera with the compute power and tools to capture and analyse spatial-spectral information. 

Living Optics Camera


Familiar software tools for computer vision engineers to exploit spectral information in their applications. 

Living Optics Development Kit
Bringing spectral information to computer vision

The Living Optics Camera is a VIS-NIR video-rate spectral imaging camera.

Developers can now see the whole image, capturing both spatial and spectral information in real-time at video frame rates.

Engineered to integrate the capabilities of spectral imaging into computer vision and empower developers to explore and harness the advantages of Hyperspectral Imaging in their applications.
