Bodkin Spectral Imagining presents Silios Technologies CMS4 series 4Mpx Multispectral cameras for Biometrics

These Pixelated Filter Array cameras come in three wavebands, for Color analysis, Vegetation and Security.

Researchers at Sony recently demonstrated biometric identification from the spectral signature of the skin*. Using Silios CMS-C multispectral imagers, researchers identified people by the image of a small patch on their hands. This new approach can replace identification based on retinal imaging, face recognition, fingerprints and vasculature.

The new CMS4 series of cameras offer 4 times more pixels, the largest array available!

View your images using COLOR SHADES® LAB. This data processing package is included with every multispectral CMS camera purchased from Bodkin Spectral Imaging.

The CMS-C cameras are designed for color analysis based on their 8 unique spectral filters. The CMS-V has a different set of spectral filters designed for vegetation analysis to aid in precision agriculture. The CMS-S filters are designed for security to aid in defeating camouflage and identifying concealed targets in the field.
