To complete its range of outdoor-ready PTZ systems for surveillance of perimeters and critical areas, Videotec has announced the release of ULISSE EVO DUAL, the new PTZ network system designed to endure outdoor applications that provides two independent videos from a high-sensitivity visual camera and a thermal camera.

ULISSE EVO DUAL is the ideal solution for effective and reliable day/night preventative outdoor video surveillance of perimeters and borders, critical infrastructures, traffic, railways and much more.

The two cameras are perfectly aligned with the movements of the PTZ and offer maximum detection accuracy. The visible camera can recognize and identify a target while the thermal camera achieves better detection accuracy, even in total darkness or in extreme weather conditions.

The non-cooled long-wave thermal sensor (LWIR) with vanadium oxide (VOx) guarantees maximum detection accuracy even in total darkness and in extreme weather conditions. Available in 320 x 256 or 640 x 512 resolution with a wide choice of optics to create the optimum configuration for the application.

The visible camera is a SONY FCB-EV7520 with 30x optical zoom and a 1/2.8 “Exmor R ™ CMOS sensor, Full HD 1080/60p resolution. It is capable of producing impeccable image quality, even if objects are moving and in difficult lighting conditions. It has an image stabiliser and dynamic masking areas for privacy. The advanced SONY technology offers configurable Wide Dynamic Range and High Light Compensation that allow you to optimally manage strong contrasts of light and shadow.

ULISSE EVO DUAL is designed to ensure complete reliability and continuous operation in the most difficult outdoor environments. It offers exceptional resistance to corrosion and a wide temperature range (from -40°C to 65°C). Its extraordinary robustness is guaranteed by its IP66 / IP67 / IP68, NEMA TYPE 4X and TYPE 6P protection.

ULISSE EVO DUAL combines extreme sturdiness and operational reliability with a low weight, allowing easy and quick assembly, with a consequent reduction in installation costs and zero maintenance interventions.

It can also be mounted upside down, as in the style of speed domes. The supports can be equipped with quick-fit connectors for Ethernet/PoE, power supply and I/O, which allow easy and quick replacement of the unit where on-site intervention is required.

ULISSE EVO DUAL can be powered with PoE 90W according to the IEEE.802.3bt standard. This guarantees compatibility with the most common power injectors available on the market while maintaining backwards compatibility with PoH power injectors (OHEP90INJ or OHEP90INJO).

In addition to this, to make wiring operations and device connection as easy as possible, the COMB communication box can be utilised. It can manage the connection of a PTZ and its washing system, or two fixed cameras equipped with washing systems. COMB is available in the Videotec catalogue.

ULISSE EVO DUAL offers the Videotec guarantee of a reliable, cyber-safe, future-proof platform that is easily integrated with third-party products.
