NOCTURNTM Camera: This rugged, low-light camera line from Photonis provides high resolution images while maximizing power consumption. Each of the NOCTURNTM cameras are optimized for size, weight, and power requirements to be used in any lighting situation from bright daylight to low starlight. NOCTURNTM cameras offer less than 4 e- read-out noise without cooling and 1280x1080 resolution with a frame rate up to 100Hz.



Digital CMOS Sensors: Photonis designed our Lynx and Kameleon digital CMOS sensors to provide high resolution images across a broad spectrum in either full colour or monochrome. This award-winning technology has a pixel architecture that offers the best signal-to-noise ratio, high dynamic range and low read-out noise. Both the Lynx and Kameleon sensors provide crisp, clear images at full SXGA resolution (1280x1020) in low light down to 4mlx while still supporting a fast frame rate of 100fps.
