The Atom One is the smallest Global Shutter camera with dual 3G-SDI outputs available on the market. The Atom One features a 1/1.23” sensor which is capable of capturing images in full HD at 1920x1080 quality. The dual outputs can be configured to output the same signal (mirror output) or can be used with two individual lookup tables. The Atom One features a robust housing which can be used for operation in harsh environments with temperature ranges of -30 to +65 degrees Celsius. Measuring in at 32mm x 32mm x 71mm the Atom One can be easily mounted using the ¼” x 5mm tripod threads or use the 7 additional M3x5mm mounting holes on the top and bottom of the enclosure. The built-in IR cut filter provides true color reproduction high-quality images in day and night operations. The Atom One can accept voltage levels between 6-36 VDC, making installation in any aircraft very simple.
Global Shutter vs Rolling Shutter
For those who are not familiar, “rolling shutter” is a technical term referring to the way the image sensor scans the image. If the sensor employs a rolling shutter, this means the image is scanned sequentially, from one side of the sensor (usually the top) to the other, line by line. In contrast to that, “global shutter” is the technical term referring to sensors that scan the entire area of the image simultaneously. Thus canceling the infamous jello effect commonly seen in rolling shutter cameras.
Image Processing Features
The Atom One features a wide variety of image processing attributes which come standard with the camera. Some of the many features include Defective Pixel Correction, Lens Shading Correction, White Balance / Auto White Balance, Flare Compensation, Color Matrix / Color Correction, Denoise and Detail filters, Auto Exposure, Black Level, White Level, Master Black, Color Post Processing (luminance, contrast, saturation, hue) and HDR output.
CS Mount Lens and Adjustable Back Focal Length
The back focal length of the Atom One is fully adjustable allowing this camera to achieve perfect focus by utilizing any C/CS mount lens on the market. With a variety of lens options available, the camera can provide any FOV ranging from 97 degrees H (wide angle/zoomed out) to 20 degrees H (narrow/zoomed in).
