The Nocturn 720p HD-SDI core is a ruggedized passive low-light imaging core that features high-definition resolution, high sensitivity, and high dynamic range with low power consumption. Powered by the Photonis Lynx CMOS sensor or the Kameleon Colour CMOS imaging sensor, the Nocturn provides real-time imaging capabilities (from daylight to bright starlight scene illumination) in the visible and near-infrared spectrum in either monochrome or color. Its small size, low weight, and low power usage (SwaP) make this core module ideal for integration into mobile and handheld surveillance systems.

The Nocturn 720p HD-SDI camera uses Photonis’ award-winning CMOS image sensor technology to provide unsurpassed day-through-night imaging capabilities, in either monochrome or color without additional illumination or a secondary technology, which is considered as passive low light camera imaging. Nocturn offers small size, weight, and power package with an industry-standard video interface for a compact package that supports high definition video in both day and night time lighting conditions.
