Dream in color--high speed, high fidelity color at resolutions up to 4k.

Piranha color cameras deliver superb color fidelity at the fastest line rates and highest resolutions in the industry. Teledyne DALSA’s RGB trilinear sensor eliminates artifacts associated with prism cameras by placing a separate row of pixels for each color on a single sensor die. Teledyne DALSA’s advanced design minimizes distance between rows to minimize image artifacts due to synchronization. The result is higher quality images at higher speed. With a single power supply and Camera Link interface, the camera is both easy to use and powerful, offering programmable gains and offsets for each color as well as FPN and PRNU correction.If you’re dreaming in color, take a look at a Piranha color camera. Dreams do come true.
