Perfection in Reflection. The new polarising camera range from Sony

Learn more


Introducing the first in a new range of industrial cameras featuring Sony's new IMX250MZR Global Shutter CMOS sensor, incorporating 4-way polarised light detection capability and the robust and flexible XCG GigE® Vision digital interface.

Add to comparison tool Start compare

The XCG-CP510 combines the best of Sony technology in a convenient form factor which is optimised for use within both the Industrial Vision and non-manufacturing vision markets.

The XCG-CP510 incorporates our innovative and ground-breaking new IMX250MZR global shutter CMOS sensor, which uses monochrome quad polarised filters to capture polarised light in four planes. 

The camera draws upon Sony's market leading high sensitive Pregius Global Shutter CMOS sensor technology and high quality camera-making capability, thus the XCG-CP510 provides the best combination of performance and quality from a brand you can trust.  

The XCG-CP510 has a resolution of 2448 (H) x 2048 (V) with a frame rate of 23 fps and supports GigE Vision 1.2 / 2.0 with a one cable PoE capability.

The XCG-CP510 will be made available together with an exclusive Sony-developed polarised camera SDK which will enable fast and simplified development of polarised-light applications for the camera and your solution demands.  

The XCG-CP510 and SDK will therefore be well suited to deployment in significantly improving visibility and detection in a number of manufacturing and security/ITS applications including stress measurement & detection; scratch detection; object detection, removal and enhancement.

Case studies

Interview with Polarization camera Developers & Product Planner

Sony’s polarization cameras XCG-CP510 and SDK enable image processing of subjects, which was difficult to realize with conventional machine vision cameras. Here, I asked the developers about the many attractions hidden in this “polarization camera".The interview will provide answers to user questions on the following points.

  • What is polarization?
  • What is the mechanism of polarization cameras? What are the merits?
  • What can they be used for?

Introduction of SDK for Polarization Camera

Sony's Polarization Camera and the SDK for the polarization camera, both of which were released in December 2018, achieve high functionality, high image quality, and high-speed processing. One notable aspect of the SDK is that it can be
used at minimal cost by eliminating the need for labor in implementing the polarization signal processing, which previously required specialized knowledge. In addition, polarization processing can be performed at full resolution and full frame rate by utilizing graphics processing units (GPUs), which have demonstrated powerful numerical processing capabilities in recent personal computers. This document mainly describes the functions and characteristics of the SDK
