The problem facing many strategic, high growth markets that leverage real-time video is no camera is optimized to deliver high-quality actionable video in every environmental condition. The quality of the video captured from all camera systems is compromised by a variety of factors. Even the most advanced wide-dynamic range, high-definition, thermal or infrared cameras are restricted by optical physics and environmental challenges. The following conditions have the most significant effects on capturing high-quality, actionable video:
Adverse Lighting caused by Night, Low Light, Back light and extreme contrast like Sun Glare, Headlights and Infrared Imaging are challenging environments that distress the quality of video. These conditions significantly impact the image quality taken by all camera systems, rendering them ineffective and incapable to deliver meaningful and actionable video.
Extreme Weather conditions impact the visibility of all camera systems. The image quality from cameras operated outdoors can be severely compromised by the effects of severe rain, snow, dense fog, mist or haze removing any chance of capturing actionable data.
Smoke, smog, ash, and soot are all forms of atmospheric particulate matter that are based on size and often divided into 5 categories: Suspended Particulate Matter, Coarse Particles, Fine Particles, Ultrafine Particles, and Soot.
Environmental Conditions in the environment can also negatively impact the quality of the imagery delivered by the camera. Representative challenges in this area include the impact of sandstorms, dirt and dust, all of which degrade visibility and the camera’s ability to capture quality video.
