A further feature: day/night switching. If the ambient brightness drops below a value of 1 lux, it automatically switches over from day to night mode. During the day, the colour camera ensures optimal colour rendering by means of automatic backlighting compensation, gain control and white balance. At night, it delivers extremely clear black and white images thanks to its light sensitivity. In order for the CCD sensor to detect all the details in the dark, the colour camera is additionally equipped with LEDs for uniform illumination of the camera's field of view.
