Good Tips for Avoiding Hot Spots When Using Infrared Surveillance Cameras

As more retail stores sell lower cost video surveillance cameras, the level of expertise given to the customer is waning leading to almost pointless protection. A lot of low cost surveillance cameras have integrated infrared (IR) lighting positioned in a ring surrounding the lens, which probably sounds like a great approach because these cameras can see at nighttime. In fact some have a specification of zero lux. While it is true that they will work in complete darkness (0 lux), what is actually not mentioned is at what range.

Differentiating CCD And CMOS Image Sensors

Source: Alf Chang | Date: 12/25/2013 Related tags: Cmos , CCD , CompoSec A core component of security cameras, CCD and CMOS image sensors have in the last few years parted ways in terms of applications and characteristics, sensitivity, noise reduction and energy consumption. At the same number of pixels, CCD sensors have outperformed CMOS sensors in sensitivity; CCD sensors also take in more light than CMOS sensors of the same size. In real-world applications, however, CMOS sensors deliver the same level of performance as their CCD counterparts in low-light cameras. This makes CMOS sensors the preferred image sensor for HD cameras. What to Look for in a CMOS Sensor In theory, CCD sensors allow a higher resolution than CMOS sensors of the same size. In practice, image sensor suppliers overcome this simply by making larger image sensors since security cameras do not have space constraints. Major image sensor suppliers for the security market like Aptina, Omnivision, Sony and Sharp, use this advantage to continue to enhance the performance of CMOS image sensors. Currently, most HD cameras on the market use 1/1.8”, 1/2.5”, 1/2.7” or 1/2.8” image sensors. By testing IP megapixel cameras on the market, it is possible to find a CMOS sensor that is practical in both price and performance.

The IndigoVision Ultra 5K Fixed Camera. Ultra-High Resolution. Winning Performance.

The IndigoVision Ultra 5K Fixed Camera. Ultra-High Resolution. Winning Performance. Wednesday, 11 December 2013 12:30 Announcing the IndigoVision Ultra 5K Fixed Camera – the first ultra-high resolution security camera to deliver outstanding image detail and video performance in ALL lighting conditions. “Having ultra-high resolution means a single camera can give greater overall situation awareness, while providing better digital zoom. Ultra-high resolution means less cameras are required.” stated Alex Swanson, IndigoVision’s Head of Engineering. “The IndigoVision Ultra 5K has an ultra-high resolution of five thousand horizontal pixels, delivering incredible image detail and wider scene coverage from a single camera. Operators can get an extreme close up through the Ultra 5K’s powerful digital zoom, safe in the knowledge that every detail in the scene is continuously captured and recorded.   The challenge with ultra-high resolution is delivering video quality that the security industry expects in all lighting conditions. Until now, ultra-high resolution cameras have failed by using technology designed for industries such as medical imaging. The IndigoVision Ultra 5K has a cutting edge CMOS sensor with Global Shutter and Wide Dynamic Range. Outstanding image processing performance of 120 Megapixels per second gives 6 frames per second video.   A winner in both real-life and laboratory tests, the IndigoVision Ultra 5K delivers ten times better low lux performance and double the frames per second than other ultra-high resolution cameras. ”   concluded Alex. Fully ONVIF compliant, the Ultra 5K is optimised to work with IndigoVision’s Control Center video management software and Networked […]
