The laser illuminator uses the same type of optics as the zoom camera, thus illuminating the camera field of view optimally at all zoom settings.

The camera and laser unit are bore-sighted, ensuring optimal scene illumination regardless of distance to the object, making it ideal for day/night surveillance for border protection, camp perimeter protection, homeland security, and critical infra-structure protection (CIP) applications.

Optical system

The optical system has been developed specifically for use in long range surveillance. It features continuous zoom, with powerful zoom ratio of 30mm – 1000mm, auto-iris and focus adjustment from 3m to infinity.

The "Auto-Focus on Demand" focuses the camera system automatically by the push of a button.

The lens design incorporates oil-free, low-friction surfaces with special coatings, high-speed motors with zero back-lash and high-precision feedback potentiometers.

Fog penetration

The fog penetration function is designed to automatically increase visibility under conditions such as fog, haze and fire smoke. The camera continuously analyses the picture and once it detects a low-contrast condition, it will automatically enhance the contrast.

Digital noise reduction (DNR)

The digital noise reduction in the camera system is a function that analyses the video image and reduces the noise, particularly in low-light conditions. The analysis is based on a 2D and 3D algorithm.

Graphic overlays

The system has a built-in graphic overlay generator that allows arbitrary graphic overlays to be inserted into the image output. Typical overlays are text strings, showing azimuth, elevation, GPS data or hair crosses or other reticles. Graphic overlays can be customized to suit specific user requirements.

Easy installation and operation

The camera and laser unit has been developed for easy installation and operation in complex surveillance applications. Video output is through IP and the unit is controlled via RS-485 with Pelco-D protocol.

The unit can also be controlled locally with keyboard and also has an analogue video output.
