Whereas conventional night-vision cameras provide only monochromatic images, our new imaging technology gives us a great deal of visual information by color imaging on with IR.
It was difficult to judge whether a protrusion is a part of skin or a cap on the conventional monochromatic images. However, a color IR camera gives us the clear vision that a protrusion is a part of a cap.
A color night vision has similar mechanics to a conventional camera. IR illumination is projected and captured by camera. Nanolux technology enables to separate color elements of IR and generate color images.
It was considered IR was irrelevant to “color”. However, our research unveiled the correlation between visible light and infrared ray. It enabled to extract color information in infrared ray (patented internationally)
The correlation between visible and infrared reflectivity is applied to the colorization of infrared imaging camera.
