EMVA 1288 Imaging Performance

Measurements are taken based on guidelines in the EMVA 1288 standard; the full definition can be found at EMVA.org. Camera settings are: maximum bit depth, 16-bit pixel format, and ISP disabled. The center wavelength is 525 nm unless otherwise noted. Results are captured at room temperature (20°C). Using FLIR test software version 4.0.
