Ventus HOT 300, 690, 900

VGA resolution MWIR with long life cooler

The Ventus HOT is a unified and integration-ready mid-wave infrared camera core that combines cutting-edge HOT (high operating temperature) detector technology with a suite of continuous zoom optics and powerful image processing capabilities.

Features

Designed for critical long-range security and surveillance operations, the Ventus HOT operates at temperatures far warmer than traditional InSb MWIR detectors, which means decreased load on the cooling mechanism, faster cool-down times, longer overall cooler life, and lower overall cost of ownership. The camera delivers crisp, clear imagery at 15 µm pixel pitch and 640 x 512 resolution, with 15-300 mm, 35-690 mm and 45-900 mm, F4.0 lens models.

The Ventus HOT is tuned for high atmospheric transmission with low absorption by suspended water vapor and CO2 to deliver the best imagery possible in a diversity of environmental conditions. Additionally, a powerful processing engine provides a wide range of enhancements and features, including electronic image stabilization, digital zoom, automatic/manual gain control, adaptive contrast control (CLAHE/LAP), stock and user-defined LUTs and more.

Digital video is offered via HDMI or SDI and H.264/H.265 encoded IP stream. Command is over RS422/RS232 serial and/or Ethernet using command and hardware interfaces that are standardized across Sierra-Olympic’s product lines.
