The Piranha4 Color's quadlinear CMOS sensor provides multispectral capability by capturing three native colours (red, green, blue) and a separate NIR channel. The minimal spatial separation offers the a maximum in colour accuracy with a frequency of 70 kHz. The unique feature of an additional NIR sensitive line allows for simultaneous feature detection in the visible and the NIR spectrum. Systems can be designed with a single camera instead of two dedicated sensors. Moreover, the whole sensor with all 4 lines (red, green, blue, NIR) requires only a single IR-corrected lens, which gives an excellent price performance ratio while maintaining a wide selection of lensing options.
