META’s Film Protects Sensitive Surveillance Video Camera Sensors
Lasers emit concentrated beams of light, which can heat up sensitive surfaces (like the eye’s retina) and cause damage. Video camera sensors are extremely susceptible to damage, similar to the human eye. META makes holographic laser protection filters that can be applied directly to the video camera outer lens to protect at least with optical density 2 on multiple wavelengths while still enabling high transparency and color balanced images. Other laser protection products primarily use dyes. These block a large portion of the visible spectrum, destroying key image quality characteristics.
