Merits of the Dual-Band Camera

This dual-band camera offers several distinct advantages compared to general monitoring cameras:

Dual-Channel System: The camera incorporates both thermal imaging and visible light channels. Thermal imaging is ideal for 24-hour surveillance, capable of detecting fires and intrusions day and night. Meanwhile, visible light is utilized for daytime evidence collection.

Advanced Algorithms: The camera integrates multiple algorithms, enabling the identification of crawling individuals, smoke and fire recognition, animal detection, and automatic alarm triggering. This feature significantly enhances situational awareness and automated monitoring capabilities.

How Avantier Met Customer Requirements

Two primary requirements: 

  • Forest Fire Prevention: This dual-band camera provides automated remote monitoring and early warning for forest fire prevention. Equipped with intelligent hot spot detection algorithms, the camera can detect distant heat sources, such as flames, within a range of 6,000 meters. It also integrates with specialized fire prevention warning platform software, offering features like automatic processing of alarm information, fire point location calculation, and meteorological data access.
  • Border and Coastal Monitoring: For border security and coastal monitoring, the camera serves as a crucial tool for preventing smuggling, illegal immigration, and enemy intrusion. Its long-range capabilities, advanced optics, and integrated features like intrusion detection and target tracking make it highly effective in safeguarding sensitive areas.

Specifications and Technologies Unique to Avantier’s Camera

  • Infrared Thermal Imaging: The camera utilizes a highly sensitive 640×512/384×288 resolution uncooled focal plane imaging detector with a detection sensitivity of up to 50mk. This technology provides finer image quality, even in adverse weather conditions.
  • Advanced Optical Design: The camera features AS+DOE continuous zoom optical technology for smooth and steady zooming, beneficial for large-scale search and long-distance recognition. It also includes non-uniform image correction technology and image detail enhancement for superior image quality.
  • Visible Light Camera: Equipped with a full HD color/black and white dual-mode low-light CMOS sensor and a compact long-focus continuous zoom lens, the visible light camera delivers excellent performance in various lighting conditions.
  • Pan-Tilt Mechanism: The camera’s heavy-duty CNC pan-tilt allows for 360° continuous rotation without blind spots, ensuring smooth operation and minimal image shake.
  • Intelligent Functions: It supports intrusion detection, target tracking, and hot spot detection with short response times and accurate positioning, enhancing automated monitoring capabilities.
  • Expandable Features: The camera can be equipped with additional sensors like laser illuminators, rangefinders, BeiDou/GPS, and electronic compasses, enabling multi-functional situational awareness and precise target information acquisition.

Application Effects

This dual-band camera has found extensive application in various sectors, including:

  • Port and River Monitoring
  • Key Material Monitoring
  • Security of Military Bases
  • Airport Surveillance
  • Oilfield and Oil Depot Security
  • Forest Fire Prevention
  • Ecological and Environmental Monitoring
  • Border and Coastal Defense
  • Urban High-Altitude Observation
  • Anti-Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Applications
  • Monitoring Along Highways and Railways

Overcoming Existing Obstacles 

The company’s collaboration with Avantier has yielded a groundbreaking solution, the dual-band camera, which effectively addresses longstanding surveillance challenges faced by conventional cameras.

  • Day and Night Monitoring: The camera’s dual-channel system, seamlessly transitions between thermal imaging and visible light modes, ensuring 24-hour surveillance capabilities. This innovation eliminates the limitations associated with conventional cameras that struggle to maintain effectiveness in varying lighting conditions.
  • Environmental Interference: Environmental factors such as fog, rain, or snow often impede image quality and detection accuracy. However, the camera leverages advanced technology, including MEMS-based thermal imaging sensors and non-uniform image correction, to significantly reduce these challenges. This results in consistently clear and accurate images, regardless of adverse weather conditions.

Diverse Application Scenarios: Unlike conventional cameras that may not be suitable for a wide range of scenarios, thiscamera stands out for its adaptability. It boasts intelligent algorithms, long-range zoom capabilities, and thermal imaging capabilities, making it the optimal solution for various applications, including forest fire prevention, border and coastal monitoring, and more.
