Fujifilm’s Integrated Product for Long-distance Video Surveillance
Fujifilm recently showed its innovative SX800 camera system for long-range surveillance at the Milipol 2019 homeland security event in Paris. It features two integrated high-performance components: a Full-HD camera and a stabilized 40x zoom lens. This innovation is the result of years of experience in digital cameras and a dedication to the highest optical quality.
Thanks to its powerful 1/1.8“ image sensor, a broad focal length range of 20mm to 800mm and state-of-the-art image processing technology, the Fujinon SX800 is ideally suited for demanding long-range surveillance applications to protect critical infrastructure and transportation networks, including airports, harbors, highways and borders. The powerful combined optical and electronic image stabilization mechanism provides angle correction of up to ±0.22 degrees and provides consistently sharp images – even of objects several kilometers away. The integrated high-speed autofocus provides a sharply focused image in less than a second.
Integration With PTZ Units
The SX800 in combination with a pan-tilt head results in the greatest possible benefit and maximum safety for the user. The ONVIF-compatible SX800 camera system can be integrated into PTZ units to provide accurate long-range surveillance which is particularly useful in the applications mentioned above as well as for keeping an eye on the environment or for aerial surveillance. Building the SX800 camera into the robust and precise positioning unit is simple and fast, resulting in a flexible PTZ camera system.
Stable at a Distance
The built-in SX800 camera lens is complemented by a 1.25x digital zoom to achieve long-range surveillance equivalent to 1000mm focal length. The Fujifilm SX800 camera has an integrated lens system, thereby avoiding focussing problems during setup and maintenance. While the built-in image stabiliser accurately compensates for camera movement, typically caused by gusts of wind or structure vibrations, the system is particularly effective when shooting in the ultra-telephoto range, which is susceptible to even the smallest movement. With a highly sensitive sensor and advanced noise reduction, the SX800 can shoot clear footage with minimal noise even in low-light conditions.
A de-fog function brings vivid clarity to hazy images caused by light diffusion due to mist and dust.
