Is Bayer Pattern better
than Pan Sharpening?

Pan Sharpening vs Bayer Pattern

Yes! With Bayer Pattern Image Sensors, fewer cameras are needed per ground area which means that a multi camera system can cover more area and/or provide higher resolution than a Pan Sharpening solution.

At Phase One we have used Bayer Pattern technology for more than 25 years. Our modern technology stack empowers our customers to stay at the forefront of imaging quality, efficiency, accuracy and productivity.

Bayer pattern image sensors use a color filter array in front of the pixels to enable capturing of full RGB color images with a single sensor. The specific arrangement of the color filters in the Bayer pattern is used for almost all color image sensors across all types of applications and all image sensor sizes. Consequently, the optimal processing of Bayer pattern image data has been very thoroughly researched and modern Bayer processing algorithms are based on immense amounts of development effort from a wide range of both commercial companies and academic institutions.

In this tech talk you will learn about:
