A new line of panoramic illuminators has been launched by Raytec of Ashington, Northumberland, United Kingdom. The new illuminators offer a better spread of light with longer illumination distances. Ideal for pan-tilt-zoom or dome cameras that cover large areas, they are also suited for high-definition cameras fitted with wide-angle lenses. Available in infrared and white light, all Panoramic LED illuminators use holographic lens technology to spread and control the light for softer, more even distribution. Hot-Spot Reduction Technology directs light where it is most needed and provides full scene coverage without overexposed sections.
