Sierra-Olympic Technologies (www.sierraolympic.com), supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, has signed an agreement with Leonardo DRS, Inc. (www.leonardodrs.com) to become its U.S. master distributor of commercial uncooled thermal camera cores.
Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, introduces the Vayu HD, an uncooled thermal camera with true high definition (1920 x 1200 pixels) and capable of 1080p output. The new thermal imager replaces the recently introduced Viento HD and Viento HD IP67 cameras and features the same longwave infrared (LWIR) spectral response from 8 to 14 µm, making it ideal for security, border protection, military imaging, airborne recon, and wide area surveillance.
Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, announces the new Viento HD IP67, a full HD 1080p thermal camera with an IP67 environmentally-rated enclosure. The unique, high-definition longwave-infrared (LWIR) imager is in a rugged housing that provides total protection against dust, and protects against the effects of water immersion to depths between 15 cm and 1 meter.
Sierra-Olympic Technologies recently introduced the affordable Viento-GT, an easy-to-use, thermographically-calibrated thermal camera. The Viento-GT is a highly reliable, high resolution and low-cost thermal imager that can deliver thermographically-calibrated digital data for every pixel. The camera is easy to power and control via a single Ethernet cable using the Gig-E Vision® and Power over Ethernet (PoE) standards.
HOOD RIVER, OR – January 23, 2017 – Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, introduces the Viento-G, an easy-to-use, affordable thermal camera.
Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic introduced us to the Vayu HD camera – the only 2 megapixel longwave uncooled camera on the market. Watch the video to learn more about the camera, as well as a new partnership with DRS Technologies, and a new zoom lens.
There are unique challenges involved in bringing infrared cameras up to the high-definition standards we’ve all grown accustomed to for cameras in the visible range. Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic Technologies spent a few minutes at DCS 2017 to speak about these challenges.
At Photonics West 2017, Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic talked to us about the challenges of developing high definition thermal imagers, as well as some of his company’s accomplishments regarding independent infrared imaging.
Sierra Olympic’s Chris Johnston had some really interesting displays to share with us at Photonics West in 2016. The first involved a thermography camera with resolution you need to see to believe.
Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic took time out of day two of the exhibition to show us the Vinden CZ. If you work in the security and surveillance space or have a project that requires thermal imaging with advanced continuous zoom capabilities, watch the video to see if its features and specifications match your needs.
The Vayu HD is the world’s first full high definition, uncooled, 1080p output thermal camera designed to deliver unmatched 1920 x 1200 image resolution, sensitivity, and detector quality for the most stunning thermal images from a stand-alone commercially designed camera. Standard features include unique real-time extended processing tools, electronic image stabilization, on-board image and video storage, and Ethernet capabilities.
The Viento-G is a simple-to-use thermal camera designed for a wide array of thermal monitoring applications and custom OEM applications. The feature-rich thermal imager provides the ability to view and control the video and supply power using a single, standard Ethernet cable via GigE Vision® and Power over Ethernet (PoE) industry standards. It is available in either enclosed or split board configurations with standard or thermography imaging and data in either 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 resolutions.
The Vinden 105 EX and Vinden 150 EX are designed with a 35-105mm or 50-150mm lens, and a 12x zoom factor for a 640 x 480 resolution, or a 6x zoom factor for a 320 x 240 resolution. They also feature offer IP-video output with H.264 and MJPEG streams and Ethernet control. These cameras provide integration flexibility, and are ideal tools for security/surveillance integrators, or any other thermal video user requiring continuous zoom thermal imaging capabilities.
There can be many factors to deal with when looking to utilize the best field of view (FOV). This white paper covers the different types of FOV, the factors that must be considered for choosing a lens for FOV, and what lens focus does to FOV.
In thermal imaging, it is difficult to overcome the challenges of fewer pixels and lower resolution. As a solution, Sierra-Olympic offers arrays with 320 x 240 resolution and up.
