Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its new website.


Sierra-Olympic Technologies, Inc. (SOTI) is pleased to announce the launch of its new website.  The website ( is designed to educate, inform, and provide a convenient way to purchase infrared cameras from the internet.

SOTI’s new website features longwave infrared cameras from DRS.  The Tamarisk family of products and the Watchmaster family of products are presented in all their configurations with accessories.  Additionally, you can select your configuration and place it in a cart for purchase with a credit card.  Buying an infrared camera has never been easier.

Sierra-Olympic has developed two new lines of infrared cameras.  The Viento family is intended for industrial, scientific, and routine benchtop thermal imaging.  What separates it from other LWIR imagers is that it includes standard interfaces on the camera.  No interface cable or breakout box is necessary to get images from the camera within minutes of opening the box.  It includes a BNC connector for analog video, a CameraLink connector for uncompressed digital video, a connection for standard RS-232 serial control, and a mini USB connector for communications and control.

The Vinden CZ is an OEM longwave infrared chassis camera with a continuous zoom lens.  The Vinden CZ is designed for manufactures and systems integrators.  The Vinden CZ’s lens is a 3X continuous zoom with horizontal field of view from 17.1° to 5.9° (640 x 480) and 8.9° to 3.0° (320 x 240).  The system is managed by an innovative custom processor which provides critical image process functions with extensions for edge analytics.  The Vinden CZ generates H.264/MJPEG IP-video streams for Ethernet connectivity, as well as simultaneous NTSC/PAL analog video, and 14-bit CameraLink digital video.  A single user friendly GUI controls the camera and lens.  The control protocol is well documented for systems integrators to design their own control software.

There are educational videos, product specific videos, specifications, configurations, and a good deal of product information.  As always, we are eager to provide direct support as well.  Reach out and let us know what you think.
