What is Hyperspectral?

Hyperspectral Imaging is a different way of collecting photographic information. It provides significantly more information about a scene than can be seen with the naked eye. Hidden details can be found, and material properties can be discovered. It has a wide range of applications – from detection of crop disease to finding elusive evidence on a crime scene.


The Scyllarus C++ API is available to developers looking to integrate highly optimised and state of the art Hyperspectral image processing into their own application. To see the Scyllarus C++ API in action, download our Scyven viewer – it’s powered by Scyllarus!

Matlab Toolbox

For Researchers, the Scyllarus Matlab toolbox provides access to a wealth of image processing functions that can be used on Hyperspectral images to recover various properties and perform analysis. The toolbox can be used to load images in the HSZ data format in Matlab to be processed for a variety of applications.


Our viewing and analysis tool ‘Scyven’ (Scyllarus Visualisation Environment) allows users to inspect and analyse Hyperspectral images to discover the spectral signatures that are present within the image. With one click, you can view an image’s material breakdown!
