The recently launched ace, dart and pulse models from camera manufacturer Basler are equipped with PGI, a unique new firmware feature set that allows real-time in-camera image optimization that won’t drag down performance.
Basler has now equipped all new models in the ace series as well as all cameras in the dart and pulse series with a unique new patent-pending technology called PGI. This powerful in-camera image optimization feature set is comprised of a unique combination of improved sharpness, denoising, color-anti-aliasing and 5×5 debayering.
The feature set has been engineered to be very lean and use as few resources as possible. Even with PGI activated, the camera will continue to run at full speed — without the need for expensive enhancements such as larger internal memory or add-on processing units. Because the computational work is handled directly within the camera, PGI is 100% real-time compatible and significantly shortens latency times.
Thus, PGI gives users access to quicker image processing and with it the higher throughputs. Further it opens up additional cost savings along the image processing chain, all while significantly optimizing image quality.
