Natural Color Rendition

MidOpt_Natural_Color_RenditionUnlike the human eye, color cameras are sensitive in the near-infrared (IR) portion of the spectrum. This can cause an image to appear unnatural. When using a color camera and imaging with white light, such as natural light or a broad spectrum light source that emits near-IR, it’s necessary to block near-IR light in order to achieve natural, realistic colors. MidOpt_Shortpass_FiltersIn contrast to near-IR pass filters, near-IR blocking filters block all or selected near-IR (and sometimes red) wavelengths. This is particularly important in color imaging applications to enhance image quality. Near-IR block filters can also be used with a monochrome camera, to fix problems caused by overly bright lighting conditions, such as molten metal inspection.

Applications Solutions

  • Block IR Wavelengths for Natural Color Rendition
    Before: Camera without IR and UV block filter, non-visible light interferes with accurate color rendition.
    After: SP700 Near-IR/UV Block-Visible Filter blocks UV and IR to create true-to-eye images
