Pixim's chipsets are at the heart of millions of security cameras worldwide, capturing and delivering clear, accurate images in all lighting conditions.
Pixim's Digital Pixel System® technology revolutionizes the way video cameras capture and process images. Unlike traditional cameras, where each pixel cannot adjust to highlights and lowlights in the same scene, Pixim's patented Digital Pixel System® technology empowers hundreds of thousands of pixels to act like individual cameras constantly self-adjusting. This all-digital system enables Pixim-powered cameras to efficiently capture the whole picture, regardless of lighting condition or application – thus securing the highest resolution, natural color and clarity, while automatically eliminating image-compromising visual noise (e.g., glare, reflections). The result is more than superb image quality; it is accurate, actionable information that gives users the strength of certainty.
In traditional, analog CCD cameras, all the pixels in the image sensor have the exact same shutter speed. As a result, every pixel receives the exact same exposure creating overexposed images in bright areas and underexposed images in dark areas.
Pixim employs the only all-digital technology in the industry – the Digital Pixel System® technology. Pixim's technology employs hundreds of thousands of self-adjusting pixels to act like individual cameras, eliminating image compromising visual noise and delivering the highest resolution, natural color and clarity, even in challenging lighting conditions. This all-digital system efficiently captures the whole picture, down to the crucial details so all the information is there when it is needed.
Pixim's Digital Pixel System, is comprised of a digital image sensor, a digital image processor, and real-time software. Rounding out Pixim's offering, the company makes available a family of Reference Boards and a Camera Development Kit to speed time-to-market for security camera developers.
Pixim's chipsets are incorporated into hundreds of thousands of security cameras that ship to more than 90 countries worldwide - from retail stores to banks, all the way to Olympic stadiums.
Pixim's technology is ideally suited for a number of applications where security needs and challenging environments intersect, including:
