The camera series HD1-D1312-160-CL is based on the Photonfocus A1312 CMOS image sensor with LinLog® technology. This Photonfocus CMOS sensor with a full well capacity (FWC) of 90 ke- is optimized for high dynamic range applications and a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The sensor A1312 has an additional feature to widen the dynamic range. It is possible to expose the odd and even lines independently and choose also a independent sensor response curve. This enables different LinLog® settings for each field. The cameras have the CameraLink Base interface.

The high dynamic range camera series HD1-D1312 is a result of the demand for high dynamic range (HDR) images with linear response curve. The camera benefits from the odd/even exposure feature of the Photonfocus CMOS sensor A1312. This feature allows operating odd and even rows of the image sensor independently. In consequence the exposure time and the response curve of both fields could be setup independently. This enables a lot of applications which are well described in the literature.

The following pictures show an example for an interpolation and display with the help of a tone mapping algorithm. The exposure time of the even field was approximately 10 times longer than the exposure time of the odd field. The response curve in each field was linear.
