SIONYX Launches Nightwave, Making Night as Clear as Day

BEVERLY, Mass. (February 16, 2022) – SIONYX™, a leader in digital color night vision technology, announces the launch of Nightwave, the first-of-its-kind marine camera system. Built around the brand’s proprietary Black Silicon BSI CMOS sensor, Nightwave allows mariners to navigate safely by easily spotting hazards and debris in moonless starlight without additional illumination, maximizing time on the water. 

Built to operate in the toughest marine environments, the camera is IP67 and shock rated. With flexible mounting options, Nightwave seamlessly integrates to any vessel and connects to major brand MFDs via the analog video output. For added flexibility, stream video to a mobile device via the built-in WiFi. At an MSRP of $1,595.00, Nightwave sets a new standard of affordability for night vision, making it accessible to boaters of all levels. 

“Developing solutions to increase safety on the water and navigate with confidence is part of our mission,” said Gio Lepore, Global Product Line Manager at SIONYX. “Nightwave’s digital color night vision allows anglers and boaters to be active on the water as early or as late at night as they’d like. This technology provides clear color images in near-total darkness and is simple to install and operate. It should be a standard piece of equipment on every vessel to ensure a safe trip at any time.” 


Notable features include: 

  • <1MLX moonless starlight sensitivity: allows mariners to see well beyond human eyesight and detect a man-sized object at 150 meters
  • Wide 40ofield of view: increases situational awareness to spot unexpected obstacles, debris, markers, vessels, and more
  • Convenient installation flexibility: permanent mounting hardware is included, as well as a standard 1/4”-20 mount interface.

o Nightwave can be oriented ball-up or ball-down, to meet any challenging mounting requirements

  • Stay up-to-date: the latest firmware and software releases are available through the SIONYX mobile app


Built rugged, connected, and capable, Nightwave is an impressive addition to any vessel. For more information on SIONYX or to reserve your unit, please visit
