DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Outdoor Retail Expo, Booth #29127-SL – SiOnyx™ (Beverly, MA), a leader in infrared imaging technology – today announced the official launch for the SiOnyx Aurora™, the only HD action video camera with true day and night color imaging. SiOnyx Aurora is just under 8 ounces and sized to fit comfortably in one hand for easy operation.
Action cameras are designed to capture action anywhere — but what if that action is happening in the dark? What if action cameras were equipped with night vision? That is the idea behind the Sionyx Aurora, a camera that can shoot day or night thanks to an ultra-low-light sensor and night vision. After originally launching with a Kickstarter earlier this year, the company says the camera will be available in August, without the crowd-funded risk, from the company’s website.

It seems that every ten years or so, the international community is spellbound by a tragic story of people trapped deep beneath the earth’s surface. Just weeks ago, the rescue of a Thai soccer team from a complex cave system dominated headlines. 2010 saw over 30 Chilean miners trapped for more than two months. Both stories served as serious reminders of the dangers miners and other subterranean workers face every day. For that industry, equipment is everything in a hostile, alien environment. The recent release of SiOnyx’s Aurora offers a new, powerful tool for those workers in the form of the world’s first day/night camera with true night vision.
SiOnyx Aurora is a new action camera that claims to be the world’s first day/night camera for consumers. It’s ultra-light sensitive, allowing you to shoot full-color images in low-light conditions. The Aurora is “the only HD action video camera with true day and night color imaging,” SiOnyx says, noting that it has received over 40 patents related to the camera. SiOnyx was founded back in 2006 by Professor Eric Mazur and Dr. James Carey of Harvard University.
SiOnyx, an infrared imaging company unveiled the world's first consumer night vision camera. "We're really excited about it. We're hoping it will deliver to the world a capability that no one has seen yet— the ability to see at night," says SiOnyx's principal scientist and co-founder, James Carey.
