One of our Featured New Products
The Compact Wide Angle Color Camera (WPC-2.0W-HD) is the newest addition to our cache of ZistosHD Camera. It is a true HD camera, 1080P, with a wide angle lens that allows for a 140 degree FOV. It comes with an internal microphone and can be TalkBack capable. It’s sub-2 inch housing allows for it to be placed in core hole during rescue missions. With this camera on the end of our motorized pole, there is no where that can’t be seen.
The ZistosHD Under Door Camera System (HDTS-5AR-ZDV) is designed to help operators conduct both visual and audio (which can be disabled) surveillance into a room, through the space under a door, during a tactical mission. The system includes a specially designed, hand held pole mounted camera that is approximately .25” thick and can be inserted into the space between the floor and a closed door. The pole camera transmits encrypted, low-latency (delay), Wi-Fi video images that are viewed on a rugged 5” display. The system also supports wired operation in situations where wireless operation is not feasible.
This special dual view camera has 2 cameras recessed within its tongue. One looks forward into the room for a subject and the other looks up to check for booby traps or barricades on the back of the door. The two images generated by the forward and upward looking cameras can be toggled on the display with the push of a button. This camera has IR illumination to covertly light up a room without being visible to the human eye. If the door doesn’t have the necessary quarter inch of door to floor clearance, an air jack is provided in the system to lift the door enough to slip the camera underneath.
The specially designed, dedicated 8’ telescoping pole with universal joint for this system facilitates horizontal panning of a room while the operator remains out of the fatal funnel of the doorway. For long term surveillance operations a drop cable can be used, allowing the operator to set the camera and view the image from a safer location.
The 5” display included in this system features a rugged, industrial design, excellent screen brightness and resolution. The tablet features a removable battery that is hot-swappable. This negates the need to take the display out of service if its battery gets low. The display can be worn on the wrist, chest, neck or can be pole mounted at the user’s preference. It also has a removable SD card that can be removed to archive captured images and video clips.
The ZistosHD wireless bridge accessory allows the system to interface to a standard cell-modem, (a product that is offered by most major cellular carriers). This allows transmission of real-time video from anywhere that has cell coverage – to anywhere that has internet access!
This tool is excellent to support jobs that involve a barricaded subject, hostage situations or to help minimize collateral damage when explosive breaching techniques are utilized.
UPDATED: The ZistosHD Pipe & Vault Inspection System is designed to perform safe, visual inspections from the street level of vaults, pipes and manholes for maintenance conditions, cracks, corrosion, hot-spots & blockages – without the need for the inspector to make a confined space entry.
This system has been engineered to support true 1080P HD video for highly detailed images. The wireless inspection tool features a submersible, self-illuminating 30X zoom camera, mounted on a telescoping pole with remote motorized articulation. This camera has optical zoom capabilities, allowing for zooming without the loss of resolution associated with digital zoom cameras. The 30X Zoom camera can be fitted with optional side lights, if more light is required.
The system is designed to be field configurable and other optional cameras are available that can add additional capability. This includes the ZistosHD Dual Mode Thermal camera. This camera is ideally suited for use in an underground electrical vault to search for hot-spots from overheating cable splices and the camera’s audio capability can be used to listen for the sounds of electrical arcing. This can all be accomplished with the worker outside of the confined space and safely above ground.
The Pipe & Vault system is secured with an adjustable pole support rod which allows for the height of the camera to be adapted to the inspection environment. It also removes the weight of the system off of the operator and protects the camera head. On top of the height adjustment of the support rod, the telescoping, motorized articulating pole can be extended up to 16 feet (larger and smaller pole lengths available) for additional reach, if required. Camera articulation is accomplished with the use of the push buttons on the handle or on-screen touch controls.
Images are viewed on a rugged, specially configured 5” display, preloaded with our proprietary viewing application, that can be chest, pole or wrist-mounted, and transmitted via wired or wireless methods. The display has a removable SD card for easy image archiving, but images can also be uploaded to cloud storage, if desired.
This easily transportable system can be used to maximize the safety and efficiency of personnel engaged in maintenance operations in underground vaults, as well as many other industrial inspection operations.
UPDATED: The ZistosHD All-Surface Vehicle Search System can be used to inspect all areas of a commercial or passenger vehicle. The ZistosHD Vehicle Search System offers the user visual access into many areas of a vehicle that are typically used to smuggle weapons, explosives, illegal currency, narcotics, or any contraband. Using a single multi-purpose high resolution video inspection tool that can be used in a wired or wireless mode. The system can be configured to transmit video images, in real time to remote observers not at the location. Vehicle locations such as areas under the vehicle, the engine compartment and trunk, under the seats and dash, around the wheels and inside bumper voids, and the cargo areas of a commercial vehicle can be inspected safely and effectively with a single camera tool.
Looking under the seats and dash of a vehicle can also be difficult. They require an inspector to lean into the vehicle in order to perform a visual search using a flashlight. It is often difficult to see well in these areas. Inspecting these locations orients the inspector in a position that compromises his situational awareness of surrounding people and conditions. In addition, it also places the inspectors head and face on or near the floor of the vehicle. These locations can be unsanitary and unpleasant and they can pose health risks. Climbing into cargo areas of a trailer or looking into the bed of a construction vehicle can also present physical challenges to an inspector.
The system consists of a telescoping pole camera and separate display unit. The pole camera is held by the operator by the systems control handle. The handle holds the rechargeable battery and the systems electronics and controls. The other end of the pole connects to a self-illuminating camera. The camera is mounted in a sled assembly that can be inserted under the vehicle. The hardened steel sled assembly is designed to glide on any surface. The sled mounted camera can peer up into the void spaces in the under vehicle. The sled assembly is designed so it can be replaced in the field when worn.
We recently upgraded the camera that comes with this system. We changed the right angle color camera to have a wide angle lens. We took the Field of View from 60 degrees to 134 degrees. This change allows the operator to see from one wheel well to another when inspecting underneath the vehicle.
The same lightweight carbon fiber pole camera can then be elevated to look high or inserted into other areas. The camera can be used to inspect for clues of vehicle tampering or other suspicious indicators in other locations of the vehicle that may be of interest.
The high definition video images are viewed on a wireless battery powered video display. The display can be viewed while mounted on the pole, worn on the operator’s wrist, worn on a vest, or positioned for viewing on the operator’s chest with a hands-free neck mount. The system allows the operator to capture still images of the video or video clips. These still images and video clips are stored locally on a removable SD memory card in the display. When the camera WiFi network is shut off, after the pole camera is powered down, the display can be configured to link to a different, secondary, local WiFi network, one that has internet access. The system can then be programmed to automatically push all of the previously stored images and video clips onto a secure cloud storage resource on the internet. Once this information is stored in the cloud, it can be viewed by anyone, anywhere.
If required, the system can also be configured for wired operation, without the need to use the internal WiFi transmitter in the pole camera. The pole camera and the display utilize long-life rechargeable batteries. These batteries can power the system from 6 to 12 hours depending on use. Each system comes equipped with 2 batteries for the camera and 2 batteries for the display, as well as their charging stations.
