Camera Recording Software
Cameras have come a long way in ensuring security and surveillance, especially during the night. One of the primary features of many modern cameras is the ability to automatically switch to night mode in low-light conditions and enable infrared (IR) illumination. But have you ever wondered why the image is black and white during nighttime and colorful during the day? Lets delve into the mechanics behind this.
Night vision cameras utilize infrared light to illuminate scenes in darkness. However, human eyes cant see infrared light, its beyond the visible spectrum for us. When cameras detect this light, it is not represented in colors because the wavelengths of infrared light dont correspond to visible colors. Therefore, the camera represents this data in grayscale or black and white. This simplification also helps in producing clearer images in low light, as color data can introduce noise.
