-- After months of research and development Ascendent is pleased to announce the NOVA Series PTZ. This series focuses on mid and long-range applications from border patrol to general observation scenarios. Top models contain features such as Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and Zoom-Laser IR Diodes (ZLID) in order to provide crystal clear images both day and night. All models come equipped with Micro-Step technology, providing accuracy up to 0.01° with pan speeds of up to 200°/s. The high quality 37X zoom modules give up to 592x zoom to capture the most minute details at great distances. The 37X's contain a 3.5mm-129.5mm to offer both extreme wide angles and narrow fields of view. The built-in OSD programming allows extensive customization to suit any application from high-contrast environments to pitch black (0 Lux). The OSD allows the use of PTZ control, presets, tours, auto-flip, and proportional pan-speed to provide unparalleled situational awareness with no blind spots. All of these features are contained in an IP 66 rated enclosure to provide protection from the most severe assaults while maintaining an aesthetic profile. The enclosure is complete with a heater/blower allowing it to function in extreme temperatures, from -45°C to +60°C (-49°F to +140°F).
