FEATURES

The Ventus 275 is an advanced cooled Midwave Infrared (MWIR) camera system sporting continuous zoom, autofocus, and advanced image processing in a compact package ready for integration. See further at higher sensitivity, while not compromising footprint or weight. A 15μm-pitch InSb focal plane array provides a 640x512 image that leverages the superior optical quality of the highly tuned athermalized and parfocal zoom lens. A powerful processing engine provides electronic image stabilization, automatic/manual gain control, adaptive contrast control (CLAHE/LAP), optional target tracking and detection, stock and user-defined LUTs, and 32GB of onboard video/still storage. The control and video interface offers digital (CameraLink) and analog video as well as an H.264-encoded IP stream. Command over serial and/or Ethernet using interfaces standardized across the wide Ventus and Vinden LR™ product lines.

The Ventus 275 provides a uniquely cost-effective solution for applications such as security and surveillance, fixed monitoring, defense, manned/unmanned ground and airborne platforms, and many more. Sierra Olympic Technologies’ expert support in documentation and staff make the integration of Ventus products a nearly drop-in experience. The Ventus cameras are also easily exportable.
