Evaluating wide-angle cameras
Options for wide-angle camera calibration
Many of our products are optimized for evaluating the performance of wide-angle cameras. CAL3 is an integrating sphere with a 38 mm concave curved opening to support a 180° field of view for the camera under test.
For those with a larger camera lens and needing a wider opening for testing, we offer the CAL3-XL with a 196 mm opening. Finally, our CAL2 device is optimized for production line integration. Our CAL devices use iQ-LED technology for more accurate camera calibration and characterization.
Geometric camera calibration
Calibrate wide-angle cameras using GEOCAL
GEOCAL is unique to geometric camera calibration because it does not require a relay lens or test charts necessary for other solutions. Instead, GEOCAL is a compact device that can generate a grid of light spots originating from infinity.
As a result, large field-of-view lenses such as those found in the automotive industry are much easier to calibrate using this device. Follow the link below to learn more about GEOCAL and geometric camera calibration.
