Select the appropriate light source for a video surveillance system design.
The choice of light source depends on the application, environment, availability of natural light, type of scene, and type of camera sensors to be used. The spectral characteristics and beam patterns must match to the camera spectral characteristics and field of view. Additional considerations include installation and maintenance costs.
1. Consider that you are designing the video surveillance system for the parking lot of XYZ College.
2. List the factors that you would consider in selecting the appropriate light source.
3. Select the light source that best fit your design.
4. Search on the Internet or manufacturer website to find out the spectral characteristics, beam pattern, installation and maintenance costs of your choice of light source. List the characteristics.
