Advanced Dual Vision PTZ Platform Designed for Harsh Environments

Hydra 1000 Duo is a highly flexible platform accommodating two camera systems, typically a visual camera with a thermal imaging core.

Designed from the outset to support operation in harsh environments, the Hydra™ 1000 Duo ruggedised PTZ uses technology new to and uniquely developed for the CCTV industry. Hydra 1000 Duo achieves outstanding and ultra-reliable performance in an immensely rugged housing manufactured from die-cast aluminium. Each axis is driven directly without intermediate belts or gears by Overview’s unique Servotorq direct-drive, integrated servo motors to give a previously unattainable level of positional accuracy, repeatability, wide dynamic range and smoothness – this results in military performance at commercial cost, with very long life and low cost of ownership.

The optional integrated adaptive illumination provides an intelligent LED lighting solution which can operate in both white and IR spectrums. Illumination levels and field of view are integrated with image zoom levels to ensure optimum lighting at all ranges with no over or underexposure of the image. Hydra 1000 Duo’s illumination option is integrated into the camera itself rather than as a design add on providing seamless illuminate up to ranges of at least 200m without compromising the performance of the PTZ.

As standard, the Hydra 1000 Duo is available in white or black, with options for custom colours if required. A range of mounting accessories and umbilical cables are available to facilitate installation.

Hydra 1000 is also available as a single camera system, the Hydra 1000 Uno.
