Oct. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- The Ranger
The RNG-37X-TI is an integrated dual-sensor PTZ system that boasts a 37X ultra-high resolution color CCD and a highly tuned thermal imager for true 24/7 performance. Integrating these two sensors provides unparalleled performance resulting in accurate detection, recognition, and identification of intruders. All of this is integrated into a rugged IP 66 housing constructed of strengthened aluminum with alloy treated anti-corrosive coating. This internal heater/blower and wiper allows the Ranger to withstand the harshest climates and the most brutal assaults, making it ideal for perimeter security, homeland defense, and coastal protection.

Thermal Imaging
The Ranger incorporates the latest thermal VOX core with a pixel size of 17UM to render images that are over 30% sharper than standard 25UM sensors and proprietary noise reduction for high contrast images resulting in greater distance and clarity over traditional thermal imagers. The VOX thermal core is immune to the damage caused by direct sunlight and parasitic light that plagues many thermal cores leading to expensive repairs and down time. The Ranger thermal has a variety of imaging modes such as heat variance, false color hot and cold, and spot highlights allowing an integrator to optimize the performance of the camera in any application. This makes the Ranger an industry leading thermal camera in both performance and features.

Optical Day/Night Camera
The RNG-37X-TI has 5mm optically pure, flat tempered glass eliminating distortion and blurring to further enhance image clarity, even when zoomed in. The OSD allows you to program the Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), backlight compensation, privacy zones, and virtually every aspect of the camera allowing it to be installed in any application. All these features, in tandem with the accurate pan/tilt drivers, allow the RNG-37X-TI to capture minute details at great distances.

Pan-Tilt Resolver
The heavy-duty PTZ driver is designed for extreme performance in the most demanding applications. It implements brushless motor technology for endless 360° panning and Micro-Step technology for precise (0.10°) pan and tilt positioning. Advanced features, such as preset and auto-cruise, will complement almost any existing equipment by means of Pelco-D and Pelco-P protocols.

Intuitive and User Friendly
Although the RNG-37X-TI is an extremely sophisticated piece of equipment, it is operated by an intuitive, user friendly interface with multiple control options such as touch screen and mouse. It can also be controlled by a 3-axis joystick and operated by any individual without prior training. Additionally, the optional Image Stabilizer (IS) and fog filter helps eliminate the effects of vibration and waves giving the Ranger similar performance of a gyro-stabilized system at a fraction of the cost.

Rugged and Robust
The RNG-37X-TI is compromised of military grade, precision engineered components and manufactured using unique processes to offer absolute performance. It integrates a military style connector to supply power, video, and communication over a single cable. The Ranger also does not require a junction box or external electronics of any kind, increasing reliability and the amount of time required to install the system.

Remote Connectivity (optional)
View all of your cameras instantly and remotely, and control them through the internet in real-time from anywhere in the world using Ascendent Remote Management Software (ARMS) on your laptop, iPhone, or Android device. Internet is often limited to low bandwidth satellites which is why our DVRs and IP cameras can record at one resolution, stream at another, and have integrated VBR and CBR to manage the amount of data and bandwidth used by each camera individually to ensure smooth operation on any network.

Optical Camera:
Wide Dynamic Range
The RNG-37X-TI optical camera incorporates advanced backlight compensation technology that dramatically improves dynamic range by 128 times, resulting in accurate reproduction in extreme high contrast lighting environments. The camera captures the same image twice; first with a normal shutter speed and then with a high shutter speed. The dark areas captured at normal shutter speed and the bright areas captured at high shutter speed are then blended into one image, using an advanced DSP LSI, producing superb images.

Automatic AE Response
The RNG-37X-TI is equipped with a slow AE response function that automatically slows the rate at which camera exposure levels change. This rate can be set up to 32 times slower than when full-auto AE or priority (shutter/iris) modes are selected. This allows for monitoring areas in which lighting conditions change abruptly. For example, if the camera is used to monitor a flow of night time traffic and vehicle headlights are pointed directly towards it, the camera’s exposure level is reduced slowly. This gives the ability to identify important details that are often overexposed by the headlights, such as the car’s license plate or the driver’s face.

Auto MICF (IR Filter)
Mechanical IR Cut Filter (MICF) delivers optimal images in both day and night shooting applications. At a set level of darkness the IR cut filter is automatically disabled (ICR ON) and the infrared sensitivity is increased. At a set level of brightness the filter is automatically enabled (ICR OFF). The IR cut filter automatically activates depending on the ambient light allowing the capture of images in a variety of lighting conditions.

High-Resolution Images
Combining a newly developed DSP with a 1/4” EX-View HAD CCD, this camera achieves a high horizontal resolution of 600TVL and outputs amazingly clear and detail-rich images with accurate color reproduction. Not only does this camera offer high resolution, it also has a 37X 3.5mm-129.5mm optical motorized IR corrected zoom lens with an additional 12X of digital zoom for a total zoom of 444X.

Multi-Line On Screen Display
Up to eleven lines with 20 characters per line can be displayed on the monitoring screen using VISCA commands. Users can freely display captions on the screen such as monitoring location, camera name, and alarm messages providing operators with a user friendly interface.

Thermal Imaging
Thermal cameras, unlike traditional visible cameras, use heat rather than light to see an object, giving them a huge advantage over other imaging technologies. Using minute differences in Infrared Radiation (IR) they produce a high contrast thermal image in complete darkness. It is unaffected by bright light and has the ability to see through obstructions such as smoke, dust, and light fog. This makes thermal ideal for a number of applications including but not limited to surveillance & security, search and rescue, fire, marine and land navigation, machine vision, and
wide area situational assessment.

See It All
Everything above absolute zero (-273°C) emits thermal IR radiation. The Ranger thermal camera converts this into a digital image that can be displayed, distributed, and recorded. Humans, animals, and vehicles are very hot in contrast to a background and trespassers hiding in shadows or bushes are easily spotted.
