One of our more popular products in our line of tactical surveillance tools is our IR illuminated Zoom Camera. We are one of the few manufacturers that offer’s a camera that has a true 10X optical zoom in a self-illuminated, IR camera.
The camera, like most of our products, is modular and can be mounted on any of our telescoping pole designs or drop cables. The zoom capability of this camera goes beyond the typical fixed focus and magnification optics on most other cameras that are used in tactical surveillance applications. The IR illuminators used on the IR Zoom camera are outside of the visible spectrum but can be sensed by our video electronics, thus yielding a truly stealthy tactical surveillance tool.
What we have done is changed the illuminators to a new design that yields approximately 4 times the amount of IR illumination as our previous model. This means that you can see further, with more detail, in dark environments and still maintain stealth. As mentioned, the camera utilizes a true optical lens train for the zoom – so you do not loose resolution when the image gets magnified and as a side benefit the system is fully weather resistant and the camera and pole are completely immersible in water.
Here at Zistos we predominantly utilize a wired design for handling the video. Wireless technology can be layered in if required, but in most circumstances the wired approach is going to ensure that your sensitive tactical video cannot be intercepted, detected or recorded by unauthorized third parties – it will only be viewed by members of your tactical team and anyone else that is involved in the operation.
Our new IR Zoom camera with its enhanced IR illumination joins the ranks of our other tactical surveillance products, such as our Thermal Pole Cameras, Under Door Cameras, our 40 foot Extended Reach Pole Cameras, IR StealthScope and our Through-The-Wall Camera. These varied tactical surveillance tools are fully compatible with each other and many of their parts are interchangeable. The net result is a complete tactical surveillance tools that maximizes your ability to garner real time visual intelligence in a covert manner and help insure the safety and success of your tactical missions.
