Vista announces integrated positioning system camera range

Providing a high-performance solution for night-time CCTV surveillance, Vista has released the Vista Integrated Positioning System (VIPS) camera range.

Comprising two models and a range of mounting options, each 'all-in-one' camera features a highly sensitive day / night camera module with on-board IR illuminators. Combined with a specially designed worm gear positioning mechanism for quick and accurate positioning, the VIPS camera range can operate at distances exceeding 120 metres - in total darkness.

Ideal for low-light / high-sensitivity applications, the VIPS18D/B features a highly sensitive 1/3" image sensor, 480 TVL resolution, and 18:1 optical zoom for optimal performance in low-light and IR illuminated scenes. Whilst the VIPS35D/B features a 1/4" image sensor, 540 TVL resolution, and 35:1 optical zoom for the ultimate in long-range surveillance.

Both versions include a fully pre-assembled camera, lens, twin IR illuminators and pan/tilt mechanism for easy installation. Four alarm inputs offer maximum integration flexibility, whilst operational features such as a built-in wiper, privacy zones, 220 presets, 4 preset tours and 4 fully programmable P/T/Z tours, assure effortless performance throughout an extended product lifespan.

"Featuring RS485 and FSK multi-protocol telemetry, VIPS can be controlled by all leading DVRs and matrices," explains Mark Pritchard, divisional director of Vista. "With integrated long-range IR illuminators and continuous rotation, the VIPS range is simple to install and intuitive to operate, thanks to an established menu system, as used on the Vista PowerDome Pro series - already familiar to many installers and operators."

VIPS range options include wall, pole and corner mount brackets, water jet nozzle brackets to allow the fitting or 3rd-party washer units, and a water-proof combined power supply and connector box.
