Introduction Outside of the typical visible light spectrum lies a range of longer wavelengths, the infrared range. This range is typically separated into four segments: Long Wave (LWIR) 8-12 µm, Mid Wave (MWIR) 3-5 µm, Short Wave (SWIR) 1.0-2.5 µm, and Near (NIR) 0.7-1.0 µm Infrared. The latter two are typically considered most similar to visible wavelengths with a light source and a target. The longerContinue Reading

In the rapidly evolving world of video surveillance, the advent of High Definition Transport Video Interface (HD-TVI) technology has been a game-changer for many professionals in the industry. As a security integrator, understanding the intricacies of HD-TVI, its history, and its impact on the CCTV landscape is essential for makingContinue Reading

What’s STARVIS/STARVIS 2? One of the essential features for security cameras is the imaging ability that delivers clear images in dark locations. Sony’s image sensors with STARVIS/STARVIS 2 technology have the sensitivity well above that of the human eye. They deliver excellent performance in the low- illumination monitoringas they notContinue Reading

In the image sensor market, we are also focusing on the sensing field, where applications are expected to expand. Besides the imaging technology we have honed for viewing captured images, we will be combining this technology with sensing technology for acquiring and using a various information. In this way, weContinue Reading

CMOS image sensor development at Sony began in 1996 and led to the launch of our first CMOS image sensor (IMX001) in 2000. At the time, CMOS image sensors produced noisy images under low light and were also inferior to CCD image sensors in the number of pixels. However, theContinue Reading

“Privid” could help officials gather secure public health data or enable transportation departments to monitor the density and flow of pedestrians, without learning personal information about people. Rachel Gordon | MIT CSAIL Surveillance cameras have an identity problem, fueled by an inherent tension between utility and privacy. As these powerful little devicesContinue Reading
