After a year in development and trials, the first of a new range of ultra-miniature pan and tilt video surveillance cameras is in full production. These units complement the popular CylinderCam PTZ range but measuring just 3cm diameter x 6cm high may be placed in much more space-restricted locations and hides.
The first model in the Minimus-PT range accepts the world-leading Covidence LLC – Low Light Cameras – designed in Denmark, specifically for demanding police and military surveillance applications. These cameras deliver vivid image capture in the most challenging of lighting conditions and are optimised for low power consumption; they also successfully handle a wide temperature range. David Horn Communications is the sole Covidence partner and distributor of these excellent professional cameras in the UK.
Remote camera control, as with CylinderCam, is via VISCA protocol and uses the DHC standard hand controller (with colour monitor).
The pan and tilt unit is manufactured in a tough and durable nylon-based material.
Future Minimus-PT models will also feature a fully enclosed IP-rated camera head.
