CUBERT Gmbh was founded in 2012, headquartered in Ulm - Germany, and is still the only manufacturer of hyperspectral video cameras that use snapshot technology for real-time solutions.

We’re excited about the enormous potential and untapped markets and applications our technology has and are committed to exploring them together with our customers.

We may be the only source of hyperspectral video footage in the world, but we think of our customers as the real experts, as they are the ones who are constantly finding new applications, new ways to apply our technology, new problems to solve with it. We provide the best tools to do this.

We have maintained the curiosity and unconventional approach of a start-up. We like to think outside the box, to test the limits of what is technically possible, not as an end in itself, but to generate real-world benefits.

This results in lean, fast, affordable and easy-to-use products and solutions that enable technical disruptions in target markets.

ULTRIS 5

ULTRIS 5 - Small Size Hyperspectral Video Camera. World's smallest HSI snapshot camera.

Cubert's hyperspectral imaging camera is also the most affordable, at a price that can easily compete with RGB and multispectral cameras.

By downsizing the fundamental light field technology of the ULTRIS 20, we have created a hyperspectral video camera featuring a 5 MP sensor that is just 30 x 30 x 50 mm and weighs only 120 g.

This latest addition to the ULTRIS family addresses the needs of industry and researchers alike for a robust and lightweight camera that can fit into every lab or production area, physically and fiscally.
