This video lecture refers to all other - "special" - camera technologies that work in a different way to a typical single sensor camera. This is either by way of how they produce the video, or by way of using sensors which are invisible to human eyes. In the beginning of the lecture I actually explain how a single-sensor camera produces colour using the Bayer Colour Mosaic Filter array, which is, in my opinion, a special optical-engineering "trick" worth understanding. Further I cover the special cameras used in IP CCTV such as the de-warping of fish-eye lenses, as well as live stitching of multiple video streams in panoramic cameras. I also include pipe inspection cameras, endoscopes, body warn cameras, drone cameras, smart phone cameras. At the end I cover and explain the Low Light Intensified cameras, the thermal cameras, UV cameras, T-Ray and X-Ray sensors and the LiDaR cameras.

With an Honours degree in Electronic Engineering, Vlado authored the industry’s ‘CCTV bible’, CCTV - from light to pixels (4th ed), also available in Korean, Russian and German. The ViDi Labs Academy video lectures are based on these books.
Vlado has been producing industry specific test charts for over twenty-five years and offers a complete IP camera evaluation and measurement service compliant with the IEC standards. His recent work has been the development of software for automated camera analysis to suit the latest ViDi Labs test chart.
Furthermore, Vlado has developed unique App - ViDiLabs calculator - which is available for installers, integrators and consultants to assist in finding optimal camera settings (for iOS and Android).
Vlado has helped develop the Australian and New Zealand CCTV Standards (AS4806) in his capacity as chief contributor. He is currently a member of the IEC TC-79 group where he contributes towards the development of the international standards 62676 for IP CCTV.
Vlado now brings you the only complete online study of IP CCTV technology, anywhere in the world, based on his books.
