Title: HIGH-SPEED HIGH-RESOLUTION MULTI-FRAME REAL-TIME DIGITAL CAMERA
Abstract:
A high-resolution digital camera (21) for capturing multiple image scene frames in real time at frame rates greater than human visual persistence. The camera having an optical system (22) for collecting images, separating the image into red, green and blue color components. Three separate imager devices (23, 24, 25) for focusing the separated images thereon. Each imager device (23, 24, 25) has a resolution of 4096 x 2048 x 16-bits in a 41 mm x 31 mm area and is constructed in a manner that permits shutter-free operation in excess of 24 frames/second for each color sufficient to provide 35-mm cine quality imagery.
