International wildlife specialists, WildlifeCCTV, have enlisted the help of surveillance lighting manufacturer Raytec to capture wildlife footage using the IR LED technology.
In the thick, dense woods of North America, WildlifeCCTV were able to capture footage of a rare species of brown bear, known for its reclusive nature and its unusual mannerisms. Raytec's low-energy, surface mount IR LED lighting provides clear imagery of the bear in its natural habitat, providing long-distance covert illumination enabling the crew to film from afar so that the bear was undisturbed by the surveillance.
The footage is being hailed as a massive success, with Professor James Stubbs from WildlifeCCTV stating, “What we have achieved is outstanding. The footage is incredibly clear, allowing us to monitor such an amazing creature from afar.”
Stubbs provided the audio commentary for the footage, adding, “By using Raytec's illuminating technology we have answered questions that have puzzled experts for decades. This really is a huge breakthrough for WildlifeCCTV”.
