The tab is intended to control modeling images from cameras with built-in infrared illuminator.

 

Only black and white and day/night cameras are sensitive to IR.

For accurate modeling IR illumination, besides the IR illuminator parameters, the camera sensitivity parameters must be set correctly.

According to camera parameters

 

Different cameras can have different parameters of the IR illuminator.

If this box is checked, IR parameters are set according to IR parameters of the active camera. As a result activation of other camera, IR parameters will be changed according to IR parameters of this camera. Manual changing IR parameters will be disabled.

 

If this box is not checked, IR parameters could be specified manually. The set parameters will not be changed during activation of different cameras.

On/Off

 

Turning on and off the IR illuminator built-in the camera.

 

Wavelength (nm)

 

IR radiation wavelength. Emitters with short waves (~ 850nm) are more efficient with the same power consumed, but they are more noticeable in the dark.

 

See more: IR illuminators

 

Radiation power(W)

 

The total radiated optical power of the camera's built-in IR illuminator. Radiated power is not equal to the consumed electrical power. About 6..40% of the electrical power goes into radiation in the optical range, most of electrical power goes into heat.

Radiation angle (deg.)

 

Full angle at the top of the radiation cone. Optical power is radiated within this cone.

At the same power, a luminaire with smaller angle of radiation will create more IR illumination, but on smaller area.

Save to camera

 

Clicking Save button, the parameters, specified on the tab, will be saved in parameters of the active camera.

Later on, if the According to camera parameters box is marked, the saved parameters will be loaded at each activation of this camera.

During modeling monitors and images for the PDF report the scene parameters saved in cameras is always used.

 

If at clicking Save button the Save to selected cameras box is marked, parameter set on the tab will be saved to all selected cameras.
