Day/night switching of the colour camera
A further feature: day/night switching. If the ambient brightness drops below a value of 1 lux, it automatically switches over from day to night mode. During daylight, the colour camera ensures optimal colour rendering through its automatic background lighting compensation, gain control and white balance. During the night, it delivers extremely clear black and white images due to its high degree of light sensitivity. In order for the CCD sensor to detect all the details in the dark, the colour camera is additionally equipped with LEDs for uniform illumination of the camera's field of view.
