Basler is expanding the image processing options of its ace camera series for selected
models of the ace U and ace L product lines. PGI, the unique feature combination of 5x5 debayering, color-anti-aliasing, denoising, and improved sharpness has already simplified color applications in many areas and even enabled applications that weren’t previously possible.
Now an adjusted version of this patented in-camera image optimization is also available for monochrome cameras. The PGI features – denoising and improved sharpness – are perfectly adapted to the demands of monochrome cameras. In contrast to color cameras, a debayered pixel format is not required for these cameras. As a result, raw images can be used and the maximum sensor speed can be utilized. Thus, PGI enables quicker image processing and with it higher throughputs that open up additional cost savings along the image processing chain, all while significantly optimizing image quality.
The PGI feature set for monochrome cameras is available for the entire ace L product line and all ace U models with Pregius sensors from Sony and with PYTHON sensors from
