C-BLUE One is a high-speed low-noise cmos camera using the Sony Exmor IMX432 sensor with 1608 x 1104 resolution. The camera delivers 480 Frames per second in 12-bit mode or 660 frames per second in 8-bit mode while keeping the readout noise under 3 electrons. A key feature of the camera to enable artefact-free acquisitions in dynamic imaging is the A key feature of the camera to enable artefact-free acquisitions in dynamic imaging is the global shutter mode.

Low-latency acquisition with real-time image processing capabilities
The high speed CMOS 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.
