As public security concerns spread across the globe, public areas that lack guard during non-business hours are requiring reliable surveillance equipment in the case of high crime rate at night or poor lighting conditions. In response, Dahua Technology develops “Starlight Technology” with comprehensive camera portfolio including PTZ, IPC and HDCVI to serve various needs of low-light environment.
Why choose Starlight cameras?
Compared to traditional video monitoring cameras, Dahua Starlight cameras feature high light sensitivity to provide brighter view under low-light environment. Offering clear image with rich details and ultra-high definition from 1080P to 4K, the Starlight cameras guarantee 24/7 reliable and detailed monitoring of public places such as parking lot, street, campus, store, etc. Besides, the high color reproduction and longer color video period enable the probability of collecting valid human, vehicle, and event evidence.
What makes Starlight Performance?
Under same lighting condition, a Starlight camera turns Black/White later and presents brighter image with far more details whereas a full-color camera presents 24/7 color image.
From Value Starlight to Full-color, Dahua Starlight family meets both entry-level and high-end needs according to different lighting conditions. While Value Starlight represents cost-efficient solutions for entry-level markets, Starlight, Starlight + and Full-color respectively offer right solutions for common users, critical scenarios and toughest environment with their various performance.
Levels of Starlight Performance
Behind Starlight’s great performance is Dahua Technology’s strong R&D ability and technological attention paid on different parts of camera. First of all, Starlight camera employs high-performance sensor or large-sized sensor with 1/1.8” or even 4/3”inch dimension to present better light sensitivity. Second, large aperture lens instead of conventional lens are utilized to present more vivid and brighter image under low-light environments. Third, high performance DSP and advanced image processing properly balances noise reduction and smear suppression while retaining appreciable clarity, which better enhances the Starlight performance. Last but not least, proper light compensation, like IR lighting (for B/W image) or LED lighting (for full-color image) is equipped together with Smart IR or Smart Light technology to present better night view while avoiding overexposure in total dark environment.
