Truck-Lite Co Inc's High Performance Video System gives drivers extra eyes to view critical areas around their vehicles — day and night — on a 5½" green phosphor screen. Green was chosen because the eye picks-up more subtle shadings for better image comprehension, compared with typical white phosphor screens. Contrast is easily adjusted to provide a greater range of tone definition in any weather or lighting condition: rain, fog, sunlight, and night.
The system's cameras, using Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors (CMOS), discriminate between subtle shadings and eliminates light bloom, a halo effect caused in other cameras by direct sunlight. Multiple cameras can offer full vision from a number of wide-angle cameras. Switching can be manual or automatic. The cameras pick-up light levels as low as 0.5 lux, making the system useful in virtually dark conditions, far less than background light at truck stops, freight yards, shippers and receivers and in rural communities. They can also function at 30,000 lux, or direct sunlight.
