The risk of relying on equipment made for best-case scenarios…
This Zistos design philosophy stems from over a decade’s experience and the many lessons learned by our engineers and end users in building portable video inspection systems. As a result, instead of designing for a best-case scenario, Zistos equipment has always been designed to operate in a worst case scenario. In other words we do our best to ensure that, when you really need it, it will work as intended.
Zistos applications include physical security, tactical law enforcement, urban search and rescue, military and industrial inspection. This means rugged and dependable under any conditions. While they may not have the flashy look of some consumer-grade products, our design build, flexibility and reliability make the critical difference when the equipment used must perform in the field.
The Zistos design approach to building its equipment is based on key factors and problem avoidance:
Wireless vs. wired. Many of the wireless video systems on the market utilize analog video transmitters and receivers that are similar in design and performance to inexpensive consumer electronic systems wrapped around high tech looking enclosures. Many of these wireless solutions are of poor quality, easily detected and can be easily intercepted. They are also prone to a multitude of operational problems based on environment. There are many consumer products/technologies that can detect and intercept wireless video transmission. There are even applications for smart phones that can threaten wireless video security. Video signals can easily be detected, acquired, viewed and recorded by outside parties, media and even adversaries. Although we offer wireless as an option, the built-in wired configuration employed by Zistos avoids all of these risks.
