OceanView, Furuno Offer Night-Vision Solutions
March 23, 2011
OceanView’s Apollo II night-vision camera can now be fully integrated into the Furuno NavNet 3D navigation system. The Apollo II is the only thermal-imaging system that can be managed without an external controller, making it part of a seamless navigational package controlled via the NavNet 3D multifunction display. Boaters can control all of the camera’s functions, such as pan, tilt and zoom, through the Furuno system. OceanView’s Poseidon and Zeus cameras are also compatible with the NavNet 3D system.
NavNet 3D makes navigating a vessel easier than ever with TimeZero technology facilitating chart redraw, zooming, chart panning, changing chart display modes and other chart-handling functions without limited range presets. Built on an Ethernet network, NavNet 3D enables users to add as many components as they desire, along with up to 10 displays to create an ideal navigational suite.
The Apollo II is a combination thermal and low-light camera. Both images can be displayed simultaneously on 2 separate displays or on a single split-screen display. Both give the user critical information when navigating at night, in fog or in low-light conditions. The Apollo II sells for less when used with Furuno NavNet 3D, as there is no external controller required. It is available in 4 models: thermal and low-light, thermal only, low-light only and HD.
