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

By Erik Bascome | STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — For the first time ever, New York City’s school zone speed cameras can now legally operate around-the-clock. On Friday, Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a bill to extend and expand the city’s speed camera program until July 2025, allowing the automated enforcement tools to operateContinue Reading

ANPR stands for Automatic Number Plate Recognition. Automatic number-plate recognition is a technology that uses optical character recognition on images to read vehicle registration plates to create vehicle location data. It can use existing closed-circuit television, road-rule enforcement cameras, or cameras specifically designed for the task. This type of systemContinue Reading

Strong leadership can lead to motivated and loyal employees. Here’s what that looks like. In my last piece, I discussed 10 signs of a poor security leader. I was glad to see that the piece resonated with people. The two main types of feedback I received were: These signs don’t merelyContinue Reading

As law enforcement and government surveillance technology continues to become more and more advanced, it has also become harder for everyday people to avoid. Law enforcement agencies all over the United States are using body-worn cameras, automated license plate readers, drones, and much more—all of which threat people’s right toContinue Reading
