LiveNDVI ™ Video


An Industry First

Only From Sentera

LiveNDVI ™ video technology is the latest groundbreaking technology from Sentera, and is the only solution in the world of its kind. The Sentera Double 4K sensor allows you to livestream NDVI video at the field’s edge — while your drone is still in the air!

 

The fastest way for growers and consultants to make informed decisions is to view normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data the instant it is collected. With LiveNDVI, it’s never been easier to gather real-time data that enables you to make immediate input decisions.

Real-time processing at 30 frames per second

The Sentera Double 4K sensor is the only sensor available that allows you to capture NDVI video. What’s more, the Double 4K is fast — and efficient. There is no other product available that rivals it.

 

To produce crisp LiveNDVI video, NDVI analytics are being performed within the sensor on every pixel in every frame — while it’s flying over your field. The Double 4K has an on-board processor that translates NIR and RGB data into TrueNDVI video instantly. The result is real-time NDVI video livestreaming to your device while the drone is still in the air. At the same time, 4K video is generated by processing 30 frames every second.

 

Processing over half a billion calculations during a typical flight, the Double 4K is more than just two cameras joined together — it’s the most advanced NDVI sensor available today. The Double 4K is smaller than a deck of cards, weighs less than a cell phone, and has the processing power of a full-size computer.

What is TrueNDVI™ Imagery?

For decades, agronomists and scientists have used NDVI values to assess plant health. Sentera NDVI sensors capture wavelengths of light called near-infrared (NIR) that cannot be seen with the naked eye, and that correlate directly to the biological processes in plants. TrueNDVI images are produced by combining NIR images with regular RGB images.

 

What about software that generates NDVI imagery? Any NDVI data not generated by a RGB sensor and then processed using a software application is synthetic NDVI. “What’s the difference?” you might ask. Attempting to generate NDVI data from a regular RGB camera is a bit like trying to determine the color of somebody’s shirt from a black and white photo — the information simply isn’t there.

 

It is critical to use good data if you want to make good decisions. Capturing precise NIR data with a Sentera sensor is the only way to obtain TrueNDVI data.
