Spectra Insight™ Software  
HyperSpectral Imaging; spectrometer

Spectral Insight acquires and processes spectral data from virtual any imaging spectrometer. Spectral data can be imported from 3rd party sources for analysis. Image size/resolution and spectral range/resolution are limited only by the imaging spectrometer.

Spectral Insight utilizes fast voxel processing to display thousands of spectral images as a movie or as a rotating 3D volume in real-time. Each planar image or 3D volume are assigned unique color palettes associated with a wavelength or set of wavelengths. For example, wavelengths in the blue region can be given a blue scale pallet ranging from 0-255 while images in the infrared wavelength region are given a grey scale palette ranging from 0-255.


Within the 3D volume, virtual images are stacked and displayable in three different planes xy, xz, and yz and displayed as a movie. There is a full spectrum at each xy position, a set of y-coordinates as a function of x-position and wavelength, and a full set of x-coordinates as a function of y-position and wavelength. A spectrometer with 2048 wavebands scanning across 1000 xy-points provides 2048+1000+1000 (4048) unique images to display and analyze for unique characteristics of each measurement sample. Each image plane is color coded to enhance important aspects of the measurement sample.

Each pixel, region, spectral image, and 3D volume can be analyzed for anomalies and/or compared with native or 3rd party spectral databases.
