An industry first, the Bowtech Explorer EXTREME further enhances the qualities of the field proven, Bowtech Explorer camera.
Surpassing the sensitivity of the SIT cameras of old, the EXTREME is truly a quantum leap forward in underwater Ultra Low Light Level viewing.
Featuring the latest EMCCD technology the EXTREME uses Electron Multiplying (EM) to give a superb 85% to 95% Quantum Efficiency (QE), in that critical underwater Blue/Green light region.
Added to that, a low noise floor ensures great CCD sensitivity, with the attendant lower life-cycle cost benefits, that such solid state technology brings.
Increased spatial resolution and signal to noise ratio, gives a wide dynamic range. There is no halo from bright sources and naturally the EMCCD is not susceptible to damage from bright lights.
With auto-iris control this night and day advance in underwater camera technology, is available now from Bowtech Products AquaVision range of advanced cameras and underwater lighting solutions.
