Vinden Core

Advanced Continuous Zoom Thermal Cameras

Vinden thermal camera modules are uncooled, continuous zoom thermal cameras.  Vinden cameras combine the best uncooled long-wave IR technology available with highly parfocal continuous zoom optics.  Available with three different lens options, Vinden cameras provide OEM and system integrators with powerful long-range thermal zoom cameras that are easy-to-use and easy-to-integrate.

FEATURES

Designed for OEM's and system integrators, Vinden cameras offer simultaneous analog and CameraLink video output.  The camera module provides parfocality at any object distance for perfect focus throughout the zoom range.  

The thermal imaging core offers an industry-leading thermal imaging performance with both a digital interface version and a more refined analog/digital interface option.  The continuous zoom LWIR optics demonstrate superior parfocal performance, zoom boresight, athermalization, and repeatability. 

Optional off-board processors are available in the Vinden EX models that provide IP-video encoded streams (H.264/MJPEG), advanced image processing functions, and on-board encoded streams.
