16-bit Gradation Exponentially Increases The Level of Observable Color Gradation
With traditional 8 bit color resolution, observation of transparent or low-contrast targets was nearly impossible. The High Dynamic Range (HDR) function provides images with rich gradation using an overwhelming amount of information. Moreover, the original algorithm automatically determines image processing suitable for the current image.
Rendering detailed images of areas with low color gradation
Rendering accurate images of a target with glare
The advanced high performance graphic engine allows you to capture images in 16-bit gradation through RGB data from each pixel, instead of conventional 8-bit data. This enables target profiles to be accurate in a way that is not possible with conventional systems. Furthermore, the obtained images are stored as 16-bit data, allowing you to more acutely observe images as needed.
The camera captures multiple color images in different brightnesses while changing the shutter speed, and then produces an image with high level gradation data. The range of obtainable brightness widens, resulting in the accurate representation of targets with glare as well as rendering detailed images of areas with low color gradation.
The HDR function can now be applied to a live image to allow HDR+ Quick 3D display. This allows 3D observation with fine texture expression.
