It is worth mentioning that we didn't increase or maintain our sizable customer base by ever publicly boasting about who buys what from us.
So, whatever you ask about, or acquire from us, will not be used as a recommendation by us for any others to do the same!
Introduction to who we are and what we do.
Okay, we are often asked, "Why don't you have a printed catalog?"
There are, in our opinion, already too many companies eager to have the products they sell to
Law Enforcement shown and being used in "Exposť TV" Shows.
The same applies to printed catalogs.
We believe in a "Need to Know" policy.
Sadly, others don't care...
'We' are Special Surveillance providers, and originally traded as Complete Police Supply Ltd.
The 'Brand Name' for our products is MIDNITEYES, and has been since 1991.
The name came from having to explain at what low light levels, and time of day that our modified camcorder would still work.
But it got shortened to "Midniteyes" hence midniteyes.com, and we design and produce special
Back in 1991, our CEO made the first commercially available Infra Red sensitive COLOR video Camcorder equipped
with a focusable INFRA RED Laser.
It was called the "MIDNITEYES~66" and a large number were sold to State and Federal Investigative Agencies, as well as the Military.
A year later, we added a smaller version called the "Warrant Server" and that had a 4" color monitor mounted to
the left of the camcorder on a metal bracket that had a tripod bush. This is the way most small camcorders are now,
except of course, the monitor flips out of the side. But back then it was unique.
Versions followed in other formats. Now, of course, it is very difficult to find any camcorder that doesn't have
Infrared Illumination and an "Infrared Mode." One difference then being, our infrared illuminator didn't have a visual
'signature' but the big different being theirs goes to a black and white "Grayscale" whereas ours stayed in color,
and all current versions still do. Yes, the colors are pastel shades, but 'users' prefer that to Grayscale images.
Amusingly, at the last NATIA Conference where we exhibited, that incidentally had many more "new" exhibitors and less attendees
than in previous years, we showed a new 1080HD Midniteyes camera with many new and innovative features.
To make it stand out, as it is the size of a regular "C" Mount box camera housing, and could be easily missed, it was at the
front of the booth and in a large 'outdoor' waterproof housing with a powerful IR LED array.
Hardly anyone took any notice of it other than a young salesman from one of the new exhibitors. On the second day,
he waited until our CEO left the booth, then came up and explained to us how they had a small IR Laser that would be
much better than the LED array in the big housing.
He went on to explain that his boss had invented the idea a couple of years earlier!
CPSL has, since 1991, designed, built and supplied, mainly in the US and Canada, covert surveillance products
EXCLUSIVELY to Law Enforcement, the Military, and as well as some other manufacturers, and it is from this background
that the systems and products we offer have evolved.
On the HISTORY page can be found some of the things invented/designed etc., by our CEO who is still with us
and designing new and innovative 'Surveillance Products' for Law Enforcement and the Military. Current project is a monocular
color night vision device that does not use any form of 'Light Intensifier'. It works in full color in daylight, and pastel
shades of color when the ambient lighting falls below 0.8 Lux. (This is a 'real' number and not to be confused with the numbers more
associated with cheap 'far East' board cameras.)
