Sierra-Olympic Systems Inc. in Hood River, Ore., is introducing the Vinden LR series of long-range thermal cameras with powerful continuous-zoom optics for security, surveillance, military and defense imaging, and border, port, and base security applications. The camera series is for integrators who design thermal and multi-sensor imaging systems with advanced image processing, video recording and storage, H.264 IP encoding, and Ethernet control connectivity. The OEM camera modules have several zoom lens options that provide a narrow horizontal field-of-view (HFOV) as small as 1.5 degrees without compromising image quality, optical speed, or sensitivity. It also features a tuned one-touch autofocus. The Vinden LR camera series features pixel resolution of 640 by 480 by 12 microns, sensitivity to 60 Hz frame rate, and athermalized and parfocal continuous-zoom lens options between 17.5 and 1.5 degrees field of view. Sierra-Olympic’s longwave infrared (LWIR) long-range zoom cameras are non-ITAR controlled, and are available with continuous zoom lenses of 25 to 150 millimeters, 25 to 225 millimeters, or 40 to 300 millimeters.
