Offerings include both interlaced cameras and cameras with progressive scan imagers, including both CMOS global shutter sensors and traditional CCDs. Interfaces include GigE Vision, Camera Link, CoaXPress, and USB3 Vision, as well as a few cameras with traditional analog output. JAI is one of the founding members of both the Camera Link and GigE Vision committees and produces a wide range Camera Link cameras and GigE Vision cameras with support for the latest GenICam standards. The company also participates in committees supporting the development of standards for CoaXPress cameras and USB3 Vision cameras.
JAI is a leader in the production of 2CCD cameras and 3CCD industrial cameras incorporating advanced prism-block technology to split incoming light to multiple imagers. These multi-imager cameras include RGB color cameras, 2-CCD multi-spectral cameras, high dynamic range cameras (HDR cameras), plus a series of color line scan cameras including 3-CCD cameras, 3-CMOS cameras, 4-CCD cameras, and 4-CMOS cameras. A JAI color line scan camera provides a high performance alternative to tri-linear cameras and quadri-linear cameras for handling high-speed continuous or web applications. A line of high performance monochrome line scan cameras is also offered.
In addition to monochrome and color cameras for the visible light spectrum, JAI produces cameras that operate outside the visible range to support specific application requirements. For example, JAI offers UV industrial cameras capable of producing high quality images of scenes illuminated by ultraviolet light. These UV inspection cameras leverage the shorter ultraviolet wavelengths to identify and analyze defects with smaller feature sizes, such as those found in semiconductor inspection, as well as scientific applications. At the other end of the spectrum, JAI makes NIR inspection cameras offering added sensitivity to near-infrared wavelengths. NIR cameras offer added sensitivity in low light situations and are also able to see below the surface of organic products, plastics, and various other materials to improve inspection results. JAI has also designed a unique prism-based SWIR line scan camera with dual SWIR output. This unique SWIR camera splits the SWIR wavelengths into two separate bands to enable sophisticated analysis of water content, chemical composition, and other factors.
JAI also manufactures both cameras and vehicle imaging subsystems for the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) market. In addition to high resolution overview cameras and high speed cameras offering frame rates in excess of 250 frames per second, JAI builds modular subsystems including cameras, weatherproof housings, light sensors, strobe lights, and trigger systems, plus ALPR software (ANPR software), and vehicle matching software (vehicle fingerprint). These subsystems are part of violation enforcement systems (VES systems), open road tolling (ORT systems), congestion charging, travel time information systems, parking enforcement systems, bus lane enforcement systems, border security systems, and a variety of other advanced vision-based traffic solutions.
