The Zistos WiFi WalkAbout Display

At Zistos Corporation, we are continuously advancing the capabilities of our products to offer increased functionality and value for our systems.  Our most recent upgrade was to our 5.6” LCD DVR “WalkAbout” Display.  Our new enhancements include a built in GPS Receiver, a WiFi Interface to transfer images and a Bluetooth Interface to control and accept data from other sensors and smart devices.

With the addition of a GPS receiver, you will be able to get coordinate data of wherever you are standing.  The latitude and longitude coordinates will appear right on the screen, which – when united with the current DVR capabilities of the WalkAbout – allows you to record/archive every inspection and/or mission, not only with images, dates and times but exact geographical locations.

Another recent enhancement to our WalkAbout Display was the inclusion of a WiFi Interface which works simultaneously with the already existing DVR platform.  Having this WiFi Interface allows an operator to snap a picture or record a video clip and share it directly with others, who may not be present at your location. This process is achievable through a smartphone application that simply receives the still images and video transmissions from our WalkAbout to a smart phone via the WiFi link.  Once the images/videos are on your phone, they can be shared to a cloud based storage media, or through email, text or any other form of communication.  The system can also be linked to through an existing network to a common computer or other resource.

The final enhancement in this series of upgrades is the wireless Bluetooth Interface.  This interface allows us to slave other devices to our system such as a laser ranger finder.  The laser range finder can be attached to one of our camera heads and can be slaved to the display control buttons. Whenever you press a control button the range finder can generate a distance to any object that is visible on the video screen. The distance reading appears directly on the video screen, layered on top of the video image.

Our new display unit that includes these new features add a lot of value and capability to our system. The new display is fully compatible with EVERY Zistos system that has ever been created. This compatibility allows you to add these new benefits to any existing system.

If you would like more information on any of our new enhancements or would like a product demonstration, please contact us and we would be happy to accommodate you.

Get the Tactical Surveillance Gear you need NOW!

Zistos Corporation manufactures tactical surveillance equipment that assists law enforcement personnel who must look into unknown and potentially dangerous environments.

Our new municipal lease-to-own/fixed finance plans make the acquisition of our gear easier than ever! Our tactical tools such as:

help achieve the visual and audio intelligence that tactical teams require to maximize the safety and effectiveness of their mission, while minimizing collateral damage.  Tactical surveillance tools play a vital role in the methods and tactics used by any modern tactical team and should be readily available for their use.

A common problem with many of our customers in public law enforcement sector is funding.  The required funds for teams to procure these necessary tools can be difficult to come by.  The budget landscape for law enforcement agencies is radically different today than it was even a few years ago.  The need for tactical surveillance tools by tactical teams has not diminished. What has gone away are many of the funding paths that were previously available. These programs, such as some of the DOJ and DHS grants that were available enabled a department to purchase these vital tools without impacting their regular operating budgets.

As a result of this new fiscal reality, we at Zistos have come up with a new way to that can provide a mechanism to help some departments acquire this needed gear. We have come up with a new purchase plan that can spread out what was typically a lump sum payment over months or years.  We now can offer lease to own and fixed term financing that can put our equipment within reach of any department.

These options now make it easier than ever to purchase the equipment and get it fast! – No more waiting for a lengthy grant process.

The new lease/financing arrangement can reduce the out of pocket lump sum expense into easily manageable recurring monthly charges that most departments are able to afford.  These tactical surveillance tools can be the difference between life & death.  Every department that has a tactical team should have them at their disposal – now with our new lease/financing plans, they can.  Please call us today for more information, Thank You.

Zistos Dual Mode Thermal Camera (THC-50D)

The Zistos Dual Mode Thermal Camera (THC-50D) is one of the “hottest” camera heads we have on the market. Thermal imagers let you see the world in a way that is impossible to visualize with the naked eye. It lets you see heat, however, thermal images alone can sometimes be ambiguous. Sometimes it is hard to understand when viewing a thermal image what it is you are actually looking at. Details about the subject and surrounding environment can be confusing and hard to identify.

That’s why we designed the Dual Mode Thermal – it lets you see the image in a way that is familiar, along with the thermal image. It allows the operator to instantly switch between thermal imaging and low-light, standard black & white video by a mere turn of the illumination knob.

The THC-50D camera head has built in covert, IR illumination that is used by the standard video camera for illumination, it is enclosed in a slim 1.9” diameter cylindrical housing, and it is designed to be rugged and weather-resistant.

And of course, the THC-50D camera head is designed to attach to any Zistos pole – of any length – or any cable.  So that it can be inserted into an inaccessible or dangerous area.

In Thermal mode, the WalkAbout display shows a thermal indicator that gives you a temperature scale and reading for what the operator is aiming the cross-hairs at the center of the image and the image can be set to produce different colors at different temperature thresholds.

One major benefit of owning a Zistos Video System is the modularity of every component we manufacture, including the THC-50D.  This means if you already own a Zistos system you can add any component or camera to your kit and it will be fully compatible.

Does your operation involve rail or truck tankers?

Zistos Corporation has been designing remote video inspection systems to safely and efficiently inspect the interior of vats, hoppers and tanks for industry since 2001. We are proud to announce the introduction of our NEW Tanker Inspection Camera System, (Part #: IAD-TIPZ-A6). This system is specifically designed to allow for a safe and thorough inspection of the interior of a rail or truck tanker. Just as important, the system allows the user to record and document the conditions. You can now prove that a proper cleaning was completed and the interior area was clean and devoid of any foreign objects or cross contaminants!

Inspecting a tank car has traditionally presented challenges. It is difficult to thoroughly inspect the interior of a car from outside; and as a confined space, a tank car can be inherently hazardous for inspectors to enter. A Video Inspection System from Zistos meets these challenges by offering safe, visual inspection of all areas of the interior of a tank car without a confined space entry.

The Zistos system consists of a specially designed self-illuminating zoom camera mounted to a pole. The pole telescopes down into the tank area and can be manipulated in any direction to allow for a thorough visual inspection of the tanker interior. Images are viewed and can be recorded on a battery-powered LCD display. Video recordings and still images can be recorded onto an internal memory card or transmitted via WiFi to a Smartphone, tablet or computer on a network. The system is ruggedly designed and easy to operate.

Structural issues, corrosion, mold, foreign objects, residue from wash operations, cross contaminants from previous loads and evidence of vermin can be revealed with our system. It allows an inspector to view all areas of the inside of a tank car without being exposed to the many risks associated with a confined space entry. Plus, the DVR option allows digital records to be kept that document the time, date, and results of inspections. These records can be easily stored and archived offering evidence that the tanker was as it should be following a cleaning process!

All Zistos systems are weatherproof, battery-powered, portable, durable, lightweight, compact, and made in the USA.

If you have any questions or want to schedule a hands-on demonstration of any Zistos system, please contact any member of the Zistos sales team. Give us a call today so that we can show you how using a Zistos video inspection system can help maintain brand integrity, improve quality, improve safety by eliminating dangerous confined space entry operations and help reduce costs.
