Security cameras require testing in a wide range of light levels. They must adapt from daylight to light as low as 0.0001 lux, which might occur in the worst overcast night. They must also resolve detail in mixed lighting conditions that demand high dynamic range performance. Imatest solutions will help you objectively test your camera’s performance to prove that they perform in the most extreme environments.
Image Quality for Security CamerasWith the increasing use of security cameras, including tremendous growth in the consumer market, competition amongst camera companies is rising, so producing the best quality image is paramount.
Image quality factors particularly important for security cameras include:
Light Sources for Security CamerasWe offer uniform light sources and reflective lighting which allows you to reproduce a broad range of illuminants and light levels.
Our most popular light sources for security cameras are:
- ITI LED LightBox (Transmissive)
- Gamma Scientific RS-7 (Transmissive)
- Kino Flo Freestyle 31 (Reflective)
It is critical to test your security camera in low-light conditions. To increase the ability to test we offer a Low-Light Filter.
Wide Field-of-View Test EquipmentEffectively testing wide field-of-view (FoV) lenses, and correcting properly for distortion can be a challenge. Our pre-distorted charts and ultra-wide FoV test equipment will help you overcome the challenges and simplify your testing process. Pre-distorted charts will correct FoV up to 160º. For FoV wider than 170º, use our ultra-wide test fixture.
Test Charts for Security CamerasWe offer a suite of test targets to analyze the image quality factors most important for security cameras. We produce our targets on reflective and transmissive substrates.
The targets that are most applicable to testing security cameras are:
