Ventus 275 midwave-infrared imaging engine
Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, introduces the Ventus 275, a midwave-infrared, 640 x 512 x 15 µm imaging engine with an f/5.5, 19 - 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 ideal for applications in security/surveillance, fixed monitoring, defense, manned/unmanned ground and airborne platforms. Sierra-Olympic’s expert staff is readily available to support OEM integration and assist with easy exportation (EAR ECCN 6A003.b.4.a) and documentation tasks.
