Photon etc's Global Imaging Technology

This video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line-scan, push-  broom). With global  imaging, the gain in acquiring 3D data, 2D spatial and 1D spectral, is important since the only a few monochromatic images are required  to cover the complete  spectral range where one  needs to take the full spectrum for  each point or  line in the image with other technologies.
