Teledyne SURVEYOR-SD Colour Zoom Video Camera

The Teledyne Bowtech SURVEYOR-SD underwater colour zoom camera utilises CCD technology, delivering exceptional picture quality, with a 28:1 optical zoom lensand a horizontal resolution of 670 TV lines, all within a 4,000 (or 6,000) metre rated high quality titanium housing, with a 99.7% optically clear sapphire window.


The camera features advanced back light compensation technology, which dramatically improves the cameras dynamic range, resulting in clear image reproduction in extreme high- contrast environments, known as wide dynamic.
An IP optional output can be specified which can deliver H.264 or Motion JPEG on multiple streams at full frame rate in all resolutions up to D1 (720×480 NTSC, 720×576 PAL).

Product Features:

– High Resolution Colour 670 TV Lines
– 28:1 Optical Zoom
– Remote Setup via GUI Application and/or Bluetooth Handheld Tablet
– Composite Output or Ethernet Option
– 72° Diagonal Angle of View
– 4,000 or 6,000 Metre Rated Titanium Housing

The camera is controlled via a Bluetooth handheld tablet.The device will
allow the user to perform functions such as:
• Control Zoom
• Control Focus
• Select Light Source Colour Temperature
