The Latest in Low Light HD-SDI Output Video Surveillance Cameras


The latest low light high sensitivity CMOS sensors are utilized in both Hitachi KP-HD2005R-S5 and Kowa SC200PK1C video surveillance cameras.  Hitachi KP-HD2005R-S5 uses a 1/1.9″ format size sensor (enabling use of 1/2″ format lenses) while the Kowa SC200PK1C uses a 2/3″ format size sensor.

Kowa’s SC200PK1C is an amazing Super Low Light Surveillance Camera for observation in very dark environments – producing color video at illumination of 0.005 lux, which is similar to the EMCCD sensor’s high sensitivity.
