The Pro, available a retail price of $799, offers state-of-the-art night vision for a wide range of uses including hunting, shooting sports, boating, fishing, hiking, law enforcement and more. Features include:
- Second generation SiOnyx XQE sensor with over 2x improvement in night time performance
- 3x improved 940 nm sensitivity for near-infrared (NIR) illuminator applications
- Augmented Reality (AR) with features designed for team sports and maritime navigation aids (will also be available for Gen. 1 Aurora customers via a firmware upgrade)
- Improved low distortion lens with wider field of view
- Support for SD cards up to 256GB
“The Pro is our most powerful and advanced camera to date, improving upon our existing high-performing digital night vision technology to enable the super-human ability to see in the dark,” said Stephen Saylor, CEO of SiOnyx. “With the addition of AR capabilities for situational awareness, you can move through the dark more confidently, whether you’re a sailor navigating out of a port at first light, an AirSoft player coordinating with a teammate across the field, or a law enforcement officer in the line of duty.”
The Pro joins the lineup of existing SiOnyx cameras. Last year, SiOnyx released the Sport as an entry-level version of the camera. The Pro provides advanced high caliber optics technology for those who are interested/in need of the enhanced features.
Founded in 2006 by Professor Eric Mazur and Dr. James Carey of Harvard University, SiOnyx™ has commercialized a patented semiconductor process that dramatically enhances the sensitivity of silicon-based photonics. SiOnyx’s platform represents a significant breakthrough in the development of smaller, lower cost, high-performing photonic devices in applications ranging from simple light detection to advanced digital imaging and more. The company markets its low-light technology under the XQE™ family of CMOS images sensors and has also entered the consumer electronics market with the launch of the Aurora day/night action camera.
