With the new release of Boson software (v 2.1) coming within the next couple of weeks what other things do I need to know?

  • Does Boson support External Syncing ?
    • Yes, external sync is fully validated, but depending on the camera vintage, apps engineering may need to help enable it. External sync has been validated, however operating at a frame rate other than 60 Hz will result in diminished image quality.
  • What is the time constant of Boson?
    • Approximately 8-10 ms. Please keep in mind that time constant is not a specified, controlled, tested, or reported characteristic on production cameras.
  • Status of Radiometry for Boson?
    • Although engineering resources may be committed to this task in 2019, it’s unlikely that Radiometry will be released earlier than 2020.
