SIONYX Introduces New Nightwave Colorways

BEVERLY, Mass. – After launching the Nightwave marine night vision camera with an incredible response last year, SIONYX is introducing the same revolutionary technology in new black and gray colorways — perfect for integrating with any boat’s aesthetic.

The SIONYX Nightwave was purpose-built to help mariners extend their time on the water and navigate safely in ultra-low-light. Now, boaters can streamline their look with three Nightwave camera colorways – gray, black, and white – allowing users to match their camera unit to their boat’s aesthetics. Nightwave, made for the harshest marine environments, has an IP67 waterproof shock rating and ensures mold-in color won’t chip or lose color if scratched. Whether fishing on  a lake at night for walleye or bass or making a long run out to sea, Nightwave’s digital marinecamera will help you fly under the radar in total confidence.

Built around SIONYX’s powerful patented Black Silicon CMOS sensor, Nightwave works with onboard displays as well as cell phones and tablets to spot markers, vessels, land formations, and other potentially dangerous obstructions with as little ambient light as starlight. The camera sees deep into the IR spectrum, providing boaters with clear color digital night vision video, increasing their situational awareness, and helping them safely navigate without the need for bright light to maximize time on the water for fishing, recreation, and business. Nightwave can be permanently or temporarily mounted to integrate with any vessel seamlessly, and it connects to major brand MFDs via the analog video output. Nightwave can stream video to a mobile device via built-in WiFi, even offshore, for added flexibility.

Notable features include:

  • <1MLX moonless starlight sensitivity: allows mariners to see well beyond human eyesight and detect a man-sized object at 150 meters.
  • Stable 44-degree field 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. Nightwave can be oriented ball-up or ball-down to meet any challenging mounting requirements.
  • Up-to-date performance: the latest firmware and software releases are available through the SIONYX mobile app.

In addition to the original white model for $1,595, Nightwave will be available in new black and gray options for $1695 MSRP. For more information on Nightwave and the full SIONYX digital night vision lineup, please visit
