Smart. I like it. Thanks Ethan.
360 Degree IR Illuminator Released (Axton Nano)
IR illuminators have historically focused on only the camera's field of view, providing spot illumination. But now, Axton has introduced the Nano low-profile, a ceiling mount 360° illuminator intended to cover entire rooms with infrared.
In this note, we look at this new line, its coverage area, pricing and how it compares to typical illuminators and integrated IR cameras, potential applications, and impact on the market.
[Note we have tested the Axton Nano since this was published]
the Nano illuminates in a 360° pattern downward in a wide [150°] angle...
When they say 360°, they do they just mean "ceiling mounted"?
IMHO, it's unhelpful for Axton to do this, so vote unhelpful if you agree.
Interesting, I'd like to get my hands on one and do some testing.
A little pricey though.
I've used nano and some other Axton products (mostly exterior ones) with success. Very pleased with quality and support. Not a cheapo thingie, but you get what you pay for. It worth it, especially when you need reliable IR or IR/Visible light coverage.
