Sierra-Olympic Introduces Rugged, Continuous-Pan, Visible/Thermal Video Surveillance Systems

Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for advanced imaging applications, introduces The Oculus series by Silent Sentinel, Ltd.

The new environmentally-rugged outdoor video surveillance systems feature simultaneous visible and thermal imaging outputs.  The continuous zoom optical cameras, available in either standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD), are paired with fixed field of view (FOV) thermal imagers to provide full daytime/nighttime video surveillance capabilities.

The system’s pan stage offers 360° continuous rotation; the tilt stage can be set for one of two modes at -90° viewing and full +90° tilt.  The Oculus systems are compact, durable, efficient, and support industry-standard interfaces compliant with most security/surveillance system architectures.

There are four thermal pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) surveillance video systems in the Oculus series.  All systems can be specified with either HD or SD visible cameras, and thermal imaging modules with a variety of fixed FOV optics.  Both visible and thermal imagers are enclosed in rugged pan and tilt casings for 24/7 use in all outdoor environments.

The Oculus Searcher provides the best performance for mid-range, uncooled imaging applications with a 640 x 480 array format, 12° - 50 mm f1.2 FOV.   The Oculus Ranger offers either HD or SD continuous zoom or a high-resolution thermal imager for mid-range applications (640 x 480, 18° - 35 mm f1.2 FOV) providing man recognition up to 1.4 km.  The Oculus Scout is ideal for short-range imaging applications with 320 x 240, 9° - 35 mm f1.2 FOV.  The Oculus Ti employs either 320 x 240, or high resolution 640 x 480 uncooled imaging technologies for man detection up to 2.1 km.  The Ti models are offered to allow customers to configure an Oculus system according to their site requirements.
