Pelco by Schneider Electric Announces New Infrared and White Light LED Illumination Offer
Improve camera performance, save energy and eliminate light pollution with new lighting
CLOVIS, CALIF. – Schneider Electric has announced the launch of Pelco™ Infrared and White Light LED Illumination products for security camera installations. These new products provide energy efficient, targeted discreet or deterrent lighting for video security. In addition, this efficient lighting extends the effectiveness of megapixel IP cameras for evening and night use and help security camera installations comply with light pollution restrictions.
Security cameras need a sufficient amount of light to produce usable images. With good lighting, network cameras can achieve high quality images at night, as well as reduce the bandwidth and storage requirements, and allow faster frame rates. Proper lighting also allows megapixel cameras to deliver the superior resolutions they are capable of, and eliminate the constant video noise the camera generates in trying to adapt to a low level of light. When there is video noise it is converted to high bandwidth images in the same way dark images consume all the toner in a copy machine. The end result is the high bandwidth images will overload the system with a large amount of unusable video data.
Benefits of correctly illuminating security camera installations include:
Producing high quality video at night or in any low light situation
Saving up to 90 percent on bandwidth usage
Saving up to 90 percent on storage space
Allowing for higher frame rates
Clearer images that allow Video Analytics to perform effectively
