KC-2000 SWIR (Short-wave Infrared) portable camera released
KOMAMURA CORPORATION announces the Falcon Eye KC-2000 SWIR Portable Video Camera System. SWIR (Short-wave Infrared) technology allows for vision and surveillance in extreme darkness without deploying an illuminator and ensures capturing discernible profiles of objects under poor visibility conditions such as fog, haze and smoke.
Unlike conventional SWIR camera modules, most of which are geared toward industrial vision applications, the Falcon Eye KC-2000 SWIR is a complete, portable, self-contained, battery powered video camera system with on-board viewing, recording and storage capabilities.
