In an industry first Sharp has this week unveiled its new Infrared Colour Night-Vision security camera that is capable of capturing colour video footage in total darkness.
The Sharp LZ0P420A Infrared Colour Night-Vision cameraIs the very first to be able to capture colour video in pitch dark or zero-lux environments.
The new Sharp security camera is also capable of capturing high definition images at a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels as well as offering smooth video capture at 30 frames per second thanks to its single-sensor system single CCD chip. Sharp explaining a little more :
“The infrared colour night-vision camera allows users to capture video with a high level of visual recognition at any hour of the day or night. Beyond deployment in conventional anti-theft cameras, it will find use in a broad range of applications, for example, in monitoring patients in hospitals and nursing homes.
This new camera is equipped with an infrared colour night-vision CCD 3 developed jointly by Sharp and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). It uses near-infrared light for illumination to enable colour images to be captured in total darkness (zero lux)—a first for the industry. The new infrared colour night-vision camera will be marketed to corporate customers such as security camera system manufacturers”
