It also features a highly tuned, one-touch autofocus that is easy to use, with dependable operation throughout the zoom range.

The Vinden LR camera series features a pixel resolution of 640 x 480 x 12-microns, high sensitivity up to 60Hz frame rate (max), and three, athermalised and parfocal continuous-zoom lens options between 17.5° – 1.5° HFOV. Onboard functions include advanced image processing, video recording and storage (32GB), H.264 IP encoding, and Ethernet control connectivity. The OEM-friendly camera series is an ideal choice for integrators who design thermal and multi-sensor imaging systems for security, surveillance, military/defence imaging, and border, port, and base security applications.

Sierra-Olympic’s new longwave infrared (LWIR) long-range zoom cameras are non-ITAR controlled, and are available with a 25mm – 150mm, 25mm – 225mm, or 40mm – 300mm continuous zoom lens.
