IR Illumination

IR Illumination enables security cameras to capture images in low light and even in total darkness. An infrared (IR) illuminator acts like an invisible flashlight, capturing images the naked eye cannot see.

Cameras used to observe and record in subsea and deepwater applications require options that provide IR Illumination.  At depths of over 1000 meters, there is no light penetration from the surface. Known as the aphotic zone of the ocean, sunlight does not penetrate the eternal darkness below 1,000 meters (3,280 feet).

Our ability to observe the ocean environment, its creatures, and subsea equipment is greatly enhanced by the use of video cameras that have been designed to capture images using infrared illumination.
