Derwent designed and developed the AEGIS range (AEGIS meaning \"protected by\") in
response to customer feedback. Combining innovations in lighting technology and
product design, AEGIS is a truly unique product which answers long standing
performance related issues identified by the security industry.

Featuring (patent pending) Constant Light(tm) technology, AEGIS illuminators
automatically control and adjust light output to compensate for LED degradation over
time, a problem common with all other LED based illuminators. An issue identified by
security consultants, specifiers and end users alike, LED degradation results in
poor light output, reduced image quality and reduced illumination range.

Offering unrivalled Even Illumination on scene, all AEGIS illuminators feature on
board power regulation and control which means the unit can be powered direct from a
12/24 V AC/DC power supply and often without the need for a separate PSU, enabling
quicker, easier and more aesthetically pleasing installations. Reduced power
consumption makes for lower running costs for the end user and a more
environmentally friendly lighting solution.

By introducing a 940nm version of its best selling AEGIS infrared illuminator
Derwent are able to offer a high performance solution for critical security
applications requiring covert night-time surveillance such as rail and road safety

The AEGIS White Light illuminator is designed to deliver High-Fidelity(tm) accurate
colour rendition when used with colour and day/night and cameras, the unit has
already found applications like container number recognition and car classification.

The AEGIS range was showcased by Derwent at this year\'s IFSEC exhibition at Birmingham.
