Ventus

Models 275, 700

High-performance, long-range cooled MWIR imaging solutions with continuous zoom and autofocus. 

FEATURES

The Ventus 275 and 700 are advanced midwave infrared (MWIR) camera systems sporting continuous zoom, autofocus, and advanced image processing in a compact package ready for integration. See further 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 lenses ranging from 28.4-0.8° HFOV. A powerful processing engine provides electronic image stabilization, digital zoom, automatic/manual gain control, adaptive contrast control (CLAHE/LAP), 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 connection interfaces standardized across the wide Ventus™ and Vinden LR™ product lines.
 
Two lens options (19-275mm, 48-700mm) provide 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 under US Commerce regulations (non-ITAR).
