The Pixelink PL-D753 (HDR) camera model with the Sony IMX421 3rd generation Pregius CMOS global shutter sensor is ideal for high dynamic range imaging applications requiring both high resolution images and fast frame rates. Available in mono and color, the IMX421 performs well in the NIR range.

HDR imaging is a technique used to render a captured image with a greater dynamic range of luminosity than is possible with standard digital imaging. A key feature of the IMX421 Sony sensor is a Dual ADC mode where each pixel can be read out with two different gains when enabled. The PL-D753 combines the Dual ADC images into a single hybrid HDR image, directly on camera - thus removing the need for any host processing. Real time on camera HDR is an easy way for the user to gain 6-10dB of additional dynamic range on their image without straining the CPU or requiring additional complex software algorithms. As with all the Pixelink cameras, the PL-D753 is compatible with Pixelink Capture, our free real-time interactive multi-camera software application.  

Additionally, these higher resolution cameras are a perfect match for the Navitar Resolv4K high-resolution optical systems, offering a 400-600% larger field of view compared to traditional zoom imaging systems. This eliminates the need to use multiple camera and lens systems and post-acquisition image processing software to capture and re-assemble a large field of view.
