The first thing to know about our feature-rich Night Color 2.0 Fusion Camera (N45DUD2) is that it’s ideal for dark or near-dark applications, where both covert security and full-color images are needed. The Eyeball Fusion Night Color 4MP camera provides exceptional light-gathering technology and uses image processing algorithms to enhance the available light.

This latest entry to our extensive low-light portfolio is suitable for a range of indoor and outdoor applications. It’s engineered with two lenses and two 4MP sensors that collect and process different light data. With Dual Light Fusion technology, the camera collects visible-light color detail from one lens-sensor combination and light intensity data (using an IR illuminator) simultaneously from the other lens-sensor. The two images are then fused together using frame-by-frame mapping at the pixel level to display the best of both worlds without the use of a white-light illuminator.

The Eyeball Fusion Night Color 4MP specializes in three key areas:

  1. More clarity at night and from a distance. The camera captures full-color images at longer distances compared to a standard IR camera. For exteriors, this can mean areas without high ambient light at night and areas where white light illuminators are undesirable. The camera also offers the benefit of less insect attraction.

    Full color in dark scenarios. For security applications with the potential need to identify the color of a person’s clothing or vehicle in total darkness, our Night Color technology has you covered. The Night Color 2.0 Fusion camera generates exceptional color images long after an IR camera converts to a black and white image. This light-sensitive technology allows the camera to capture more available light, creating full-color images with exceptional detail and contrast.

  3. Covertness and color when wanting to maintain the ambiance of a scene. Installing security contractors are sometimes faced with challenging video installations with special requirements. One such example is interiors — including theaters and bars — that necessitate dim lighting for technical reasons or ambiance. Night Color 2.0 Fusion technology is ideal for these environments to achieve both covert “surveillance” and full-color images.
