The ID800 smart camera can also embed digital data into images and is therefore suitable for a number of other specialized photography and imaging applications.
Along with the ID800 smart camera, NovaTeqni is supplying it’s advanced SP100 Solar Power Pack. The SP100 contains a number of integrated DC power outputs to power everything from mobile devices to personal computers and printers.

First deliveries will take place in December 2016 with the project scheduled for completion early in 2017.
