Color Night Vision Cameras

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 06, 2010

In this update, we examine Flir's Color Night Vision cameras, a new offering from FLIR that leverages the EMCCD camera cores we reviewed in June 2010. The Color Night Vision (or CNV) cameras use the same form factor as FLIR's F and PT series thermal cameras, specifically they allow for swapping out camera core cartridges and an IP network interface. Unlike thermal cameras, the CNV are designed to deliver color images in near zero visible and no artificial lighting environments.

FLIR is positioning the CNV series as a complement to their thermal cameras with the CNV used to identify and assess (with its ability to see details more clearly) and the thermal used to detect (with its ability to see activity at greater distances). To that end, FLIR offers product options that combine thermal and CNV in a single pan tilt unit.
