Paper Abstract

It is shown that the theoretical limit of the specific information capacity of electronic-vision systems depends only on density of photon flow producing the image and is directly proportional to this density. However, at significant flows the information capacity is restricted by diffraction effects in optics and the capacity of electron storages in pixels. The ultimate information capacity of multispectral electronic-vision systems is evaluated.
