Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,
Zistos Corporation is taking every precaution necessary to both protect our
staff and keep our lines of communication open between each other and our
customers. We have already started shifting our workers to working from home to
protect them and will be keeping the office open with a small crew to keep
certain business moving for now. In this time, we will be available via phone
and email just as we usually are to deal with any issues, questions or
opportunities you may have.
Zistos is based in NY and may have
to deal with a shutdown at some point moving forward. If that does occur, we
are prepared and still commit to having our phones and emails open to you. If
anyone has any questions or concerns about orders, demos, T&Es, or any
other Zistos business please do not hesitate to reach out to us and we are
committed to taking care of our customers in any way possible.
We will be keeping you updated via
our blog and email. Again, if there are any questions about anything Zistos
related please do not hesitate to reach out, our phones will always be on.
Rescue teams are often positioned in out-of-the-way locations and in time-critical situations. Being able to quickly swap out a battery and know it will last for the duration of a much-needed rescue mission is vital.
ZistosHD Rescue Systems all use long-lasting, rechargeable Smart Lithium-ion batteries. The Extended Capacity Battery (BAT-15XL) is included with all of the ZistosHD Rescue Systems. The BAT-15XL can typically run for 6-12 hours, depending on camera options and illumination settings. The battery also has an easily viewable, built-in five segment LCD charge level indicator, which displays the charge level even when it is not connected to the system.
Articulating Motorized Poles
Lightweight, easy-to-use rescue tools are essential for
technical search teams. The ZistosHD telescoping poles offer the flexibility
and durability needed for real-life conditions. The HD motorized series
are weatherproof, lightweight carbon fiber poles, which makes using them
excellent for extended time, and in any environment.
The ZistosHD motorized poles allow the operator to adjust the camera position remotely. This is important when the pole is extended and the camera is not accessible to the operator, or it is inserted into a collapsed structure or void space in rubble.
These poles terminate with an articulating camera mount and enable the operator to remotely rotate the camera to pan +/- 120°. The motion is controlled using the buttons on the HD Handle, or using the touch screen controls on the display. The operator can control zoom, video capture, illumination and more. The HD Poles use easy twist collars to expand and collapse, and are available in lengths from 3 to 30 feet. Unlike many existing articulating pole cameras, our camera has a specially designed slip-clutch that provides protection against damage to the motor assembly if the camera is forced backwards when in use.
Low-Latency Wireless Video Streaming
For rescue missions, low-latency video supports operations that require near real-time access to quickly changing conditions. Many other digital video systems are plagued by slow response that can create a delay of many seconds between the event and the viewable video image. The low-latency performance of the ZistosHD systems allows the video images to be viewable without a significant delay.
The system can also be utilized in a wired configuration when wireless operation is not feasible. The ZistosHD system will directly support up to three different wireless viewers concurrently. The encryption of the video stream helps ensure that sensitive information will not be intercepted by unauthorized parties. The system supports WPA2-PSK (AES) encryption for secure video transmission. It also can be configured for fully-wired operation for situations where wireless operation is not practical. The system’s video is also compatible with commonly used ATAK compliant external radios.
Wide Variety of Interchangeable System Options
ZistosHD’s modular design allows maximum flexibility for the rescue team in the field. One system can be configured to serve multiple applications, and added to as needs arise. Interchangeable poles — different types and lengths — can be paired with an array of camera technologies such as ultra low-light, 10X zoom, and dual mode thermal that generates both standard B/W video and thermal imaging. Maximizing the usefulness of a system also enables rescue departments to get the most from their investment in Zistos equipment. ZistosHD components are deliberately designed to be compatible with new and future system options.
Video images can be shared with others to view situations as they unfold in real-time, on multiple displays. Zistos offers an optional WiFi network bridge attachment, which enables multiple ZistosHD systems to be simultaneously viewed on a single computer via a common external network at a command location.
The ExplorerSCOPE (Part#: ESM) is our most technologically advanced tool for cargo security and counter-terrorism operations. It is a 9mm diameter videoscope that allows an inspector to make a complete visual assessment of the interior of shipping containers, trailers and other cargo vessels, through a hole as small as 10mm in diameter without opening doors or hatches.
Designed for maximum portability, the
ExplorerSCOPE is battery-powered and combines a powerful internal laser light
source, coupled with electronically-enhanced low-light video and a built-in
high-resolution video monocular. It can generate images as far as 30+ feet away
in pitch black conditions. The ExplorerSCOPE can be a highly effective tool in
search/discovery operations, where human trafficking, narcotics, and other contraband
may be hidden in cargo areas.
The basic system is packed in a small, hard
case that contains the scope, optional 5.5” display, guide tube, batteries and
battery charger. A backpack version is also available with the same components
plus a cordless drill with drill bit, spare battery, and charger. An optional
WiFi transmitter adapter allows real-time video images from the scope to be
wirelessly transmitted to other displays.
Criminal and terrorist activities remain a continuous threat. Zistos Corporation offers safe and effective solutions to help detect and thwart smuggling and terrorist activities.
From September 30th to October 2nd we will be showcasing the capabilities of our wireless ZistosHD Tanker Inspection System at NTTC’s Tank Truck Week 2019. Stop by Booth 326 for a hands-on demonstration.
