Unlike any CMOS or CCD technology to come before it, Neo 5.5 sets radical new benchmarks in its unique ability to simultaneously deliver highest specifications in sensitivity, resolution, speed, dynamic range and field-of-view: true scientific imaging, without compromise. Choice of Rolling and Global (Snapshot) exposure mechanisms ensure maximum application flexibility, the latter providing a ‘freeze frame’ capture capability that emulates that of an interline CCD.
