Salvador Imaging Showcases a Range of Innovative Camera Solutions at SPIE Photonics West 2008

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2008) - Photon Dynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHTN) announced today that Salvador Imaging, its wholly owned subsidiary, will exhibit a range of high performance digital cameras at SPIE Photonics West. The exhibition is being held at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California, January 22 - 24, 2008. SPIE Photonics West is an exhibition on optics, lasers, biomedical optics, optoelectronic components, and imaging technologies.

Showcased in Salvador Imaging booth #6419, at SPIE Photonics West this year, will be camera solutions that demonstrate a variety of high-performance imaging applications.


658 x 496 Pixel EMCCD Camera • Ultra-Low Light Video Capture 60 Frames/Second • Color and Monochrome Versions

Salvador Imaging's SI-VGA60-EM provides outstanding performance in light-starved applications including day/night surveillance, homeland & border security, biochip readers, video microscopy and more. The camera provides 658 x 496 pixel, progressive-scan video at up to 60 frames/second. Both color and monochrome versions are available. The electron multiplying CCD (EMCCD) sensor used in this camera provides programmable, solid-state gain which amplifies the photon generated charge before it reaches the readout amplifier, thus boosting the signal above the amplifier noise. The use of closed loop thermo-electric coolers significantly reduces dark current and dark current noise, enhancing the camera's ability to see in the dark.


1 K x 1 K Pixel EMCCe Camera • Ultra-Low Light Video Capture 30 Frames/Second • 12 Bit Digital Camera

Our SI-1M30-EM is a video rate high resolution monochrome camera that performs under a very wide range of lighting conditions from extremely low light levels such as overcast starlight to full sunlight.


4872 x 3248 Pixel CCD Camera Color and Monochrome Versions 3.5 Frames/Second • 12 Bit Digital Camera

Our SI-16M4-IT is a high resolution, 16 Mega Pixel camera with on-chip electronic shuttering. This cost-effective camera comes in monochrome or RGB color versions, and provides 12-bit digital data over a standard Camera Link interface. The SI-16M4-IT provides image data at up to 3.5 frames per second.
