Vumii's Night Vision Surveillance Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 28, 2009

While thermal cameras and IR illuminators are the most common choice for night vision surveillance, Vumii offers an interesting 3rd option. Vummi's cameras produce and control their own IR illumination, allowing long range capabilities (1000 meters +)

A new product release from Vumii, called Claritii, helps to address one of the major drawbacks of Vumii for broader use - the high cost of Vumii's original, long distance, Sensorii product line. By contrast, Claritti offers a shorter range (up to 800 meters) but at a substantially reduced price point to Sensorii.

Below is a sample video from Vumii that demonstrates Claritii:

While FLIR's IP announcements dominated coverage from ASIS 2009, Claritii is an interesting new product offering for those interested in night vision systems.
