Free Basler White Paper on Global and Rolling Shutter Camera Technology

POSTED 03/19/2014

Document explains different methods of exposure between global and rolling shutters and their pros and cons for specific applications with regard to heat, ambient noise and frame rate.

Ahrensburg 
–  Camera manufacturer Basler offers a new free White Paper on the frequently asked question on the difference between the two shutter variants “global shutter” and “rolling shutter”.
 
When a camera has to deal with moving objects, it’s not only the sensor technology that has an impact on the image quality, but also the shutter variant. Since CMOS sensors offer both shutter variants, the choice of sensor technology has become even more complex.
 
This white paper describes the different methods of exposure between global and rolling shutters and explains their pros and cons for specific applications with regard to heat, ambient noise and frame rate. It explains the relation between sensors and shutter methods and their effects on image quality. When do the advantages of a rolling shutter prevail, or for which applications might a global shutter be the better choice? Reader will learn when and how the rolling shutter effect can be minimized, and why higher resolution does not automatically guarantee better image quality.
