A day and night camera is designed to be used in outdoor installations or in indoor environments with poor lighting. A day and night, color network camera delivers color images during the day. As light diminishes, the camera can automatically switch to night mode to make use of near infrared (IR) light to deliver black and white images. Maintaining image sharpness and low noise, particularly in varying outdoor lighting conditions, has proved challenging.
Axis Communications’ research and development have led to the introduction of the new and revolutionary Lightfinder technology. The Lightfinder technology is the result of a meticulous choice of the right sensor and the right lens, together with the elaboration of the image data coming from the combination of sensor and lens. The fusion of these factors – sensor, lens, in-house chip development and knowledge in image processing – provides network cameras incorporating this technology with out- standing performance.
