SHOT Show 2018 Recap

Zistos was recently at SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas where we showcased a broad selection of our reliable, field proven tactical surveillance video tools. For those of you who may have been unable to attend, we wanted to give a quick overview of what we showed so you don’t miss out!

Tactical Pole Camera Systems: Customization options offer a variety of poles ranging from 2’ to 40’ as well as IR, thermal, zoom, fixed focused, and color cameras in addition to a choice of our display options to complete a kit.

WalkAbout Display: Our body-worn, ruggedly built 5.6” LCD display powers any of our tactical cameras using a rechargeable battery and generates a clear, detailed video image.

The WatchAbout display can be used in conjunction with the WalkAbout, enabling other team members to receive and view the wireless tactical video on a small wrist-mounted video screen.

The Through-The-Wall System contains specially designed hand drill and cutting tools, cameras, display and audio module that allow visual and audio observation into an adjacent interior room through a sheetrock wall. This system is perfect for hostage barricade scenarios as well as explosive breaching.

Dual View Under Door Camera: This camera has a specially designed pole that keeps the operator of the camera out of the fatal funnel of the doorway. It has a forward facing camera to look into the room and an upward facing camera to view the backside of the door as well as audio listening capabilities.

Our Dual Mode Thermal Camera incorporates both a thermal camera and an IR illuminated B&W camera in one housing.  They can easily be switched between merely by using the illumination knob on the WalkAbout display. The thermal camera is great for location and the IR B&W mode is great for seeing a detailed image.

Portable Network Surveillance Camera (PNSC) is a highly compact, self-powered, wireless Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) camera that can be rapidly deployed anywhere! The entire system packs into one PelicanTM case and can transmit wireless, encrypted data to a command location, where the images can be viewed on a computer or tablet.

StealthSCOPE: This scope is a standalone compact videoscope that can covertly see 20ft into complete darkness due to its internal IR laser light source.  Its 9mm diameter and 4-way remote articulation makes it perfect for small openings and tight areas such as around corners, over walls, under doors and inside vents and ceilings.

The Dual View Under Door Camera

The Zistos Dual View Under Door Camera is designed to provide visual information of an otherwise unviewable situation or environment – from underneath the door.  Its applications consist of hostage-barricade scenarios, dynamic entries, clearing a building’s interior, and many more. It can be an invaluable tool for a tactical team.

This system consists of a uniquely designed dual sensor camera that generates a video image, under low light conditions, when inserted into the small slot underneath a closed door.

The camera contains two low light sensors with invisible IR illuminators in its 5 mm thick tongue. One sensor points forward, the other points upwards.  The forward looking sensor lets you see into the interior of the room, while the upward looking sensor allows you to see back at the inside of the door and door frame.  Looking back at the inside of the door allows you to see barricades, booby traps, trip wires and other potentially deadly devices before entering the room.  The display image is toggled from the forward sensor or the upward sensor by adjusting the illumination control knob on the display unit.

The Dual View Under Door Camera is also equipped with a built-in audio listening device with advanced signal processing that makes it easier to hear subtle audio information and reduces the loud sounds and background noise.

The double hinged pole allows a tactical team member to insert the camera and pan the room while away from the door frame and outside of the fatal funnel.

Like many of our systems, this camera uses a safe and secure wired design and the camera images are viewed on our portable battery powered WalkAbout monitor. This means that sensitive video images cannot be viewed by unauthorized third parties as is the case with many wireless systems. The monitor is very rugged, shock and weather resistant, and features a bright display that offers the highest resolution for its size.

The Zistos Under Door camera is a valuable tool that can provide video intelligence that can help ensure success in a tactical mission. This camera is fully compatible with the other tactical surveillance tools manufactured by Zistos, such as our articulating and telescoping pole cameras, our IR zoom pole cameras, thermal pole cameras, videoscopes, and even our through the wall camera.

It rounds out a suite of tools that are interchangeable and allow a team to increase their real time situational awareness so that they have a better chance of accomplishing their mission goals in a safe and effective manner.

New Extended Reach Poles

Zistos is proud to introduce our new line of pole camera systems that include long poles that telescope out to 20’, 30’, and 40’. These new “Extended Reach” poles are made from carbon fiber, a material that is stronger, lighter, and more rigid than standard aluminum and fiberglass poles. The carbon fiber material offers better control and the enhanced rigidity minimizes bowing, especially when the pole is used in a horizontal orientation. A new lever locking collar mechanism used on our carbon fiber poles allows the user to quickly lock/release the telescoping sections of the pole. While some competing pole designs use only friction to keep the sections extended, our locking collars secure each section for use in a vertical position. The poles are fully compatible with our existing line of interchangeable cameras heads and body worn/portable display devices.
