Imenco unveils military-approved PTZ camera
Norway-headquartered Imenco has developed a new pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera called ODIN for use aboard naval vessels.
ODIN is a ruggedised 3MP IP-enabled colour camera. It includes intelligent imaging and video streaming technology with a STARVIS complementary metal oxide semiconductor sensor.
Key specifications include 30x optical zoom, with 16x digital zoom and ultra-low light sensitivity in colour day mode.
‘We have seen the need for a low-cost military PTZ for some time now,’ said David Fleming, marine and naval projects group manager for Imenco UK Ltd.
He added that ODIN took two years to develop as a camera for both external monitoring and situational awareness above decks on naval ships.
It is ‘particularly well suited for flight deck surveillance’, Fleming noted.
ODIN has obtained a series of US military certifications, including MIL-S-901E (shock test), MIL-S-167-1A (ship vibration), MIL-S-810G (environmental) and MIL-S-461G (electromagnetic interference for surface ships).
