W-VIEW GEMINI-2C

Dual camera image splitting optics done right
Dual channel optics are simple… in principle. In practice, designing a device
that enables quick, stable alignment and delivers images with minimal
distortions over a large field of view requires attention to detail. The W-VIEW
GEMINI-2C gets the details right and more. Building on our imaging and
optical experience, the W-VIEW GEMINI-2C is the first dual camera, dual
channel system engineered with super resolution quality, while simultaneously
offering versatility, expandability and ease of use. The W-VIEW GEMINI-2C
turns a simple optical concept into an elegant and useful tool that can help
maximize the information content of every image acquisition.

W-VIEW GEMINI-2C Transmittance
Reflected Image
The orientation of the W-VIEW GEMINI-2C dual images are
identical, not mirrored, making alignment intuitive and avoiding
the extra step of inverting in software.
