Snapshot Hyperspectral Camera Ultris 5

The Game Changer

Cubert’s smallest ever hyperspectral imaging camera is also its most affordable, to a price that can easily compete against RGB and multispectral cameras. By downsizing the fundamental light field technology of the ULTRIS 20, we have created a hyperspectral video camera featuring a 5 MP sensor that is just 30x30x50 mm and weighs only 120g.

As with its big brother the X20 the ULTRIS 5’s light field-based technology is highly transferable and can be adapted to specific application requirements. The ULTRIS 5 was clearly targeted towards operational usage in an industrial or production environment. The cost efficient design of the camera makes the ULTRIS 5 most attractive for system integrators, looking for an alternative to classic RGB-based machine vision or who need to design a system high in numbers. The ULTRIS 5 has a low delivery time, high reliability and together with the internally developed software SDK can easily be integrated into any controlling environment.


The ULTRIS 5 is one of the smallest hyperspectral videocamera on the market and is a real workhorse, able to be integrated into a multitude of scenarios.

It covers the same spectral range as the first ULTRIS 20, (450-850 nm – VNIR), with a sampling rate of 8 nm, a total of 50 bands, and a frame rate of >15 Hz.

The resolution is 250 x 250 pixels, so still 25x higher than the resolution of the FireflEYE V185.

The ULTRIS 5 makes hyperspectral imaging cost effective where it hasn’t been until now.

The ULTRIS 5 opens up new markets for HSI thanks to its combination of affordability and performance. It is primarily targeted towards original equipment manufacturers, as we envisage numerous industrial and operational applications ranging from skin cancer detection to triage of recycling
