Night Vision System 24/7 Surveillance Day/Night Camera

The NVS is a professional high-end camera system that features 12 bit digital signal processing, high resolution and excellent signal-to-noise ratio. Another advantage of the camera is its DRE feature (Dynamic Range Enhancement), which provides a clearer view in fog, haze, smoke or rain.

Designed as a system, the NVS comes with an automatically controlled lens, enabling it to operate around the clock, in pitch darkness as well as in bright sunlight. The integrated infrared LED ring light uses non-visible light waves (940 nm; zero lux). The anodized black housing is small and inconspicuous.

The Kappa NVS achieved is sensitivity to light through the innovative Kappa circuit arrangement in combination with Sonys Exview CCD sensor.The system is designed for sophisticated surveillance tasks and as an optical aid (for general orientation or while reversing) in vehicles for special purposes such as hazardous materials transporters or ambulances. A demo film says more than a thousends words.

With specific know-how Kappa develops and manufactures rugged cameras for extreme environmental conditions. These environments require thorough resistance to mechanical, climatic and electromagnetic stress, and to surrounding matter and environmental impacts. The extraordinary adaptability, superior durability and outstanding signal quality of our cameras provide the decisive advantage for our customers with certifications according to EN 9100 aviation, MIL-Standards, DO-160 etc. Our particular strength lies combining our competency in industrial production with our ability to understand specific application contexts. This lets us work together with our clients to develop the best solution, and to produce it reliably, efficiently, and with quality assured - be it for 20 or 2000 at a time.
