Merrell Launches “One Day. One World. One Trail.” to Showcase the Unifying Power of the Outdoors

ROCKFORD, Mich., June 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — To celebrate the global diversity that exists on the trail, outdoor brand Merrell has launched their “One Day. One World. One Trail.” project. On Saturday, April 27, across 17 countries, Merrell sent 23 photographers and filmmakers out to the trail to showcase those experiencing natural spaces and how the trail unites us all.

The individuals featured are not paid models, athletes, or social media influencers. They are real people who were out enjoying the outdoors and stopped to share a moment with the creatives producing the project.Merrell_1H19_OneDayOneWorldOneTrail

“The trail is a great unifier, and our goal with the One Trail project is simply to demonstrate that,” says Strick Walker, CMO at Merrell. “We hope this global snapshot of a day on the trail will inspire others to get out there. We can all benefit from time spent in nature and the power of the trail.”

Two films as well as individual imagery from the 17 countries featured in the project can be viewed at Merrell.com/OneTrail. The full list of countries and trails included in the creative are listed below. In November 2018, Merrell launched the first iteration of their One Trail project featuring all 50 states within the US, followed by another chapter in June 2019 showcasing real people enjoying Canada’s trails.

In addition to collaborating alongside a diverse set of global photographers and filmmakers, Merrell worked with Tim Kemple and Camp4 Collective to produce the project.

“There are very few common languages in this world. A smile. A laugh. A feeling of moving forward together. So capturing these in a spontaneous, genuine way was essential for this project,” says Tim Kemple, Co-Founder and Director at Camp4 Collective. “No matter your language, religion, size, color — when we’re on the trail, we share common ground. And recognizing that idea is pretty profound right now.”

Teledyne e2v’s Emerald 67M, Ultra-high Resolution Image Sensor Now Available

The sensor uses TowerJazz’s best-in-class 2.5µm global shutter pixel that doubles the resolution for the same optical format

GRENOBLE, France and MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, June 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Teledyne e2v, a Teledyne Technologies [NYSE: TDY] company and global innovator of imaging solutions, and TowerJazz [Nasdaq: TSEM], the global specialty foundry leader, announce that Teledyne e2v’s Emerald™ 67M image sensor, designed for ultra-high resolution electronics inspection, high-end surveillance and microscopy is now available. Emerald-XL-1_web

The sensor is a member of Teledyne e2v’s Emerald family and features TowerJazz’s smallest in the world 2.5µm low-noise global shutter pixel, on TowerJazz’s 65nm platform, in its Uozu, 300mm Japanese manufacturing facility.  The pixel is integrated with a unique light pipe technology, offering superb angular response, more than 80dB shutter efficiency, in a significantly small size, and extremely low noise (one electron).  This unique pixel architecture provides cutting edge performance that enables improved manufacturing yields, through detection of smaller defects.

The Emerald family of sensors, solely manufactured by TowerJazz, provides customers with an unprecedented set of features and are all suitable for high-speed interface systems including 10GigE, CoaXPress, Camera Link, and Camera Link HS.  Special features include HDR modes with up to 120dB dynamic range and also a unique Region Of Interest (ROI) mode which allows multiple ROI to be captured under different exposure conditions, further improving the dynamic range of an image.

Emerald 67M has a square shape with 8k resolution per side, enabling 95% utilisation of the image area for the next generation of display manufacturing, gen 10.5. The ultra-high resolution optimizes vision system movements in large product inspection, reducing system complexity and removing instabilities. It is available in two different speed grades (ultra-high speed, 60fps and high speed, 30fps).

Rafael Romay, Vice President of Professional Imaging at Teledyne e2v, said “The Emerald 67M is the first sensor of its kind and is enjoying strong interest in inspection applications due to its ultra-high resolution and fast speed. It also shares many of the smart features within other Emerald sensors making it easier to deploy within vision systems. The great technology innovation and support from TowerJazz allowed us to bring to market this best-in-class solution, customized to product and application needs.”

Dr. Avi Strum, TowerJazz Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Sensor Business Unit said, “Teledyne e2v’s design and supply chain along with TowerJazz’s state of the art 65nm process have again brought a game changing sensor to machine vision applications. We are proud to have developed this together and look forward to further collaboration with Teledyne e2v to serve the machine vision market.”
