See more details with HD cameras regardless of fog or hazy conditions

At the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2012, Adimec demonstrated two technologies that are part of our rugged camera platform.

The first is in-camera VEM technololgy which enables contrast enhancement using visible cameras with high resolution (e.g HDTV) to obtain clear images despite environmental issues such as fog, mist, or low light.  The combination of high resolution and the ability to see clearly in difficult circumstances significantly improves the possibilities for detection, recognition, and identification in situational awareness and HD designator systems.

The second is in-camera color processing.   Adimec’s color cameras can include in-camera color processing which we developed ourselves to be optimized for automated adjustment to ever-changing outdoor conditions.
