While the developments of outdoor surveillance cameras has led to i tremendous increase in image resolution, poor quality of the images recorded has become an issue. These issues arise when vital images cannot be made out due to external factors such lens covers becoming dirty due to rain, water, and dust in outdoor surveillance environments.
Panasonic has developed the ClearSight Coating technology to tackle the issues of reduced visibility due to rainfall, dirt, etc. It has been employed on H.264 outdoor PTZ cameras to achieve environments with both good visibility and resistance to dirtying. With this technology, stable outdoor surveillance can be provided and maintenance costs for lens cover cleaning minimized.
