    Cameras for Intelligent Imaging

    Intelligent imaging starts with an intelligent selection of the best possible camera to guarantee best imaging performance. Since different camera models can be distinguished by different advantages we test and qualify each new camera model with our extensive in-house knowledge and strict quality criteria to offer the best imaging solution for our customer’s application.

    Each camera system from LaVision includes our universal timing and synchronization unit PTU X, a dedicated PC and our high performance imaging software DaVis for image acquisition, processing, presentation and data storage.

    DaVis controls more than 70 different cameras including high-speed and intensified models. LaVision is constantly implementing selected new models to provide state-of-the-art camera technology for our imaging systems.
