Sierra-Olympic Technologies introduces the Ventus 275, a midwave-infrared (MWIR), 640 x 512 x 15 µm imaging engine with an f/5.5, 19- to 275-mm continuous zoom (CZ) optic. The compact, lightweight (approx. 1153g) MWIR thermal camera core is specially designed for OEM integrators of surveillance system enclosures and other imaging gimbals.
The Ventus 275 features include an indium antimonide (InSb) focal plane array and a finely-tuned athermalized and parfocal zoom lens with a 28.4 - 2° horizontal field of view (HFOV). The powerful image processing engine provides advanced image enhancements including electronic image stabilization, automatic/manual gain control, adaptive contrast control (CLAHE / LAP) and optional target tracking/detection. The camera also features a shutter-based non-uniformity correction (NUC) and an environmentally-sealed front lens element.
Multiple output interfaces include analog NTSC/PAL video, H.264/MJPEG IP video, and 14-bit Camera Link digital video, making the MWIR Ventus 275 viable for applications in security/surveillance, fixed monitoring, defense, manned/unmanned ground and airborne platforms.
