Infinova announced that, for a road surveillance project in India, a customized solution was created for a customer which needed a surveillance camera that would give correct color rendition in sodium lighting, which provides an under-2000k color temperature environment. Most cameras typically work in a color range between 2,600k and 5,000k. Lower than that, in the sodium range, cameras produce a yellow or blue image.
"These are the types of challenges we like to take on," said Mark Wilson, Infinova Marketing VP. "The sodium lighting was an environmental reality and the surveillance system would not have performed as required without our custom solution."
To keep the project moving, Infinova customized a special embedded firmware for the camera to assure that it would provide correct color images under the 2,000k color temperature.
