What is a "rolling read-out" on a microbolometer camera?

This describes the method how these detectors are read-out. In particular this means that line by line the signal information is taken from the array and processed via the ROIC." Photon counting" cameras behave different. Here all pixels are read-out simultaneously as a snap-shot.

Extreme compact size and low weight

Given the extremely compact size and low weight of the Xenics XS-1.7-320 SWIR camera it was extremely easy to integrate it into our existing optical setup.
