What are the technical advantages of the color CCD's (Charged Coupled Device) over monochrome CCD's?
One advantage is speed. With monochrome CCD's, red, green, and blue lights or filters are used in the scanning process, creating a three-step process to transform the image into color form. With our color CCD, the colors are captured by CCD arrays and reflected using a white light source, resulting in a one step scanning process. Another advantage is better image quality. Color images are captured directly into the CCD, as opposed to being converted into color via lights and filters, resulting in better color reproduction and image quality.
