C-BLUE One is an ultra-high performance scientific CMOS camera specifically designed for demanding imaging applications in the visible range (400 nm – 1000 nm)
The architecture of the camera has been designed to integrate one of three different new generation sensors: thanks to this flexible design, C-BLUE One is able to cover the largest scope of applications.
The camera can be tailored to be the best pixel size, resolution, and frame rate compromise for your use case:
• C-BLUE One 0.5MP: 812×612 px, 9μm, 1594 FPS
• C-BLUE One 1.7MP: 1608×1104 px, 9μm, 662 FPS
• C-BLUE One 7.1MP: 3208×2200 px, 4.5μm, 207 FPS
In addition, all C-BLUE One cameras offer a very low readout noise enabling imaging in ultra-low light conditions, simultaneously with a global shutter architecture.

Low-latency acquisition with real-time image processing capabilities
The high speed global shutter sCMOS camera uses CXP 2.0 to transfer the huge amount of data generated each second to ensure the lowest latency and highest real time capability. C-BLUE One high speed is a low noise camera will open new horizons for low noise high speed visible imaging.
Simpler and faster synchronization. Synchronizing a rolling shutter camera to other components, such as a light source, can be difficult due to the time delay between the lines of the sensor. This may result in slower cycle times and frame rates relatively to those achievable in global shutter.
Global shutter low-noise CMOS camera
Rolling shutter uses simpler pixel architecture than global shutter. Therefore usually rolling shutter is less noisy than global shutter, this is why this architecture is used in scientific applications but with all its drawbacks. With C-BLUE One, simultaneously and for the first time a global shutter architecture and low noise is made possible, which is a major improvement for fast acquisition scientific applications.
By combining a global shutter and high framerates (up to 662 FPS in full frame) to very low noise, C-BLUE One opens new perspectives for applications that simultaneously require truthful/deformation-free images, high temporal resolution, and high sensitivity.
C-BLUE One high-speed low-noise CMOS camera will open new horizons for low noise high speed visible imaging.
