Starlight camera technology is a CCTV camera technology which deals with improved and better night vision, basically, starlight camera technology based on the sensor which will provide good quality night vision in low light condition. The starlight camera technology based camera works on 0 LUX and gives you a better and sharper image.
Starlight camera technology work on the same principle of the IR-Cut filter but the sensor is different from the normal sensor. It uses larger and more sensitive sensor which will reduce the speed of electronics shutter hence it will not go in night vision in low light. it is not necessary that it will give you colour image, this camera gives you black and white image also. Starlight camera technology comes in both HD and IP HD cameras.
Starlight camera technology is simply a normal CCTV camera but has good night vision. Apart from this a normal question arises where and why use starlight CCTV camera, the answer to this question is as follows
Starlight Camera Technology
- The better quality image in both night and day mode- starlight camera not only shows the good image at night but also in day mode also. This camera gives you exceptionally good quality image in the night, As far as night mode is concerned there is no doubt in this camera technology .it generally used in outdoor where the user wishes to see clear image or activity in low light condition. But in the extremely dark condition, it will show you a black and white image.
- It may be used in the street because a maximum number of crime take place on street and even controlling of crime is also handled and minimize by using this type of camera. One of the main reason is that Streetlight is always on the night, so it is an idle condition of using starlight camera and hence of this kind of technology is maximum.
- It may be used in airport, railway stations and bus stations. Generally, this kind of place always has the good lighting system and in the outside area of this places have good light but the maximum number of crime also take place in these places because there are many crowds. So the starlight camera is very useful in these places because the condition is very idle and use of such technology is fruitful. Another reason to use such a camera is these places because the maximum number of crime take place in such places and it needs to be controlled.
- It may be used in the place like a supermarket and outside and open area of the mall like the parking area. Again such area have good lighting but normal camera give you the black and white image which is not much helpful because an area is wide, So if we use Starlight camera technology based CCTV camera then the same image is in colour mode which is very meaningful. These are the places where the frequency of people is more.
So above is the point which is very helpful to understand the starlight camera well but this camera is a little costly than the normal camera. So you can use only on limited and sophisticated places. If you are doing any new project then definitely you need to install starlight camera rather than the normal camera. Now I will list some good starlight camera with their specification.
