Anti-X-Talk™ technology is unique to Spectral Devices multispectral cameras. Anti-X-Talk™ technology works at the filter level and prevents light leakage between individual filters. Without Anti-X-Talk™ technology, stray light between spectral channels is significant, often exceeding the light leakage due to spectral overlap between adjacent filters. Without Anti-X-Talk™ technology, images suffer from low contrast and spectral ambiguity. Spectral Devices invented Anti-X-Talk™ technology to overcome these problems. It works by blocking stray light between adjacent filters, so the pixel response is predictable and directly related to the actual spectral response of the overlying pixelated filter. The result is multispectral images with better spectral discrimination and higher contrast. Furthermore, high quality image data from the MSC and MSC2 cameras can be used as is without the need for proprietary post-processing algorithms. Also, Anti-X-Talk™ technology enables the use and interchange of a wide range of lens types on the same camera and allows better light collection efficiency since filter response is insensitive to large aperture settings (e.g., f/2.8) .
