Understanding Night Vision Surveillance Cameras

    By : Alison Reid    Submitted 2014-03-05 01:10:02 There is really no need to justify the requirement of a security camera. The ones that have the best security systems installed in their homes and offices have security cameras installed as part of these systems. It is one thing being aware of a security system in place and a completely different feeling of security when you can see the action through a security camera. And one shouldn’t just be satisfied with security cameras being installed inside their homes and offices. Today a night vision surveillance camera or an outdoor dome camera is as important. A night vision surveillance camera can be of many types but its primary function is to capture videos outside your home or office even at night. During the daytime such a camera functions like a standard high definition camera but it comes onto its own at night and offers this additional functionality. Night vision as a concept is not new and the first nighttime pictures were captured by Richard Maddox way back in 1871. Today a night vision surveillance camera uses an image intensifier to capture images in low light and in some cases, no light. Even when the light is minimum the lens can focus the photons (light in this case) on the photocathode of the image intensifier. This releases the electrons from the cathode. The electrons are accelerated by an electric field and their speed is increased. There is a microchannel plate with […]

Flir Enhances Thermal Security Camera Portfolio

24-02-2014 Flir has added a number of enhancements to its F-Series and PT-Series security cameras, including a totally new and user-friendly web interface, an enhanced level of security with three login levels, and continuous e-zoom functionality. The new e-zoom functionality has now been added to all 640×480 versions of F-Series and PT-Series cameras. This means that there are now no fixed intervals whilst using the zoom functionality; users can now stop at any zoom position. The e-zoom appears as a very smooth and continuous image along the entire zoom range. Other new features include a new web interface that offers a live streaming video page and web-based camera controls (for pan-tilt-zoom functionality, pre-set and scan lists, AGC pre-sets and much more) and enhanced security with three login levels (user, expert and admin). F-Series thermal security cameras let users see intruders and other threats clearly in total darkness and in bad weather.  Fully enabled for control and operation over digital and analog networks, F-Series thermal imaging cameras are available in 160 × 120, 320 × 240, and high-resolution 640 × 480 formats, providing up to 16 times the image clarity and longer threat detection range performance than lower resolution cameras. Network-ready, pan-tilt, multi-sensor thermal security cameras, the PT-Series allows users to see intruders and other threats clearly in total darkness and bad weather. The PT-Series precision pan/tilt mechanism gives operators accurate pointing control while providing fully programmable scan patterns, radar slew-to-cue, and slew-to-alarm functionality. Fully enabled for control and operation […]
