How Near-Infrared Imaging Helps Achieve Night Vision
The human eye's spectral sensitivity is between 380 nm - 700 nm. Whereas ordinary cameras cover this visible range, the NIR range of 850 nm - 1400 nm can only be covered using cameras with NIR imaging capabilities. NIR imaging combines continuous-wave movements with a unique sensitivity profile that helps project distant objects with a clear vision. To capture images and videos in the night where the visible light (380 nm - 700 nm) supply is limited, an NIR camera is required.
