Photonis USA, the night vision innovation company, has introduced Nocturn, a digital extreme low-light CMOS camera.

The camera is designed for high performance under both daylight and low-light level conditions. Nocturn perfectly fits applications where high-resolution detection and ultra-high sensitivity are required under continuous imaging conditions. Its small size, weight and power (SWaP) makes this camera module suitable for integration into aerial, mobile and hand-held surveillance systems.

The Nocturn is a rugged low-light camera module that features high-definition resolution, high sensitivity and high dynamic range with low power consumption. It provides monochrome real-time imaging capabilities – from daylight to bright starlight – in the visible and near infrared spectrum.

Nocturn is powered by the Photonis Lynx CMOS sensor. The sensor provides a consistent read noise below 4e- at rates up to its full 100fps, with superior signal-to-noise performance due to its large 9.7μm2 pixels and high fill factor.
