The design and performance capability of the KODAK MEGAPLUS XRC Camera is described. This CCD camera generates 24 bit high resolution images in a frame-sequential (R- G-B) fashion. A unique image dithering capability permits variable resolution of either 1320 H X 1035 V or 2640 H X 1035 V light-sensitive pixels. The KODAK MEGAPLUS XRC Camera interfaces to an associated Signal Processing Unit (SPU). The SPU consists of a pipelined multi-processor circuit that performs a variety of image processing operations in 'real time'. These operations consist of: white balance control; aperture correction; color correction; and gamma correction. The time to capture, enhance and display a full-color high- resolution processed image is 1.5 seconds.
