CohuHD Costar’s Day/Night Camera System Recognized for Excellence in Homeland Security and Critical Infrastructure Applications
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 01, 2018 -- CohuHD Costar, a pioneer in advanced video camera systems for over 70 years, has been selected as the gold winner of the 2017 Government Security News Homeland Security Award in the category of Best Thermal, Night Vision, Infrared Camera. This is the second Government Security News Award of 2017 for the RISE 4290HD camera system, also winning Best Long Range/High Res Camera in the Airport, Seaport, Border Security Awards Program earlier in the year.
Now in its 9th year, the GSN Homeland Security Awards program hosted by Government Security News (GSN) recognizes excellence and leadership in the Cyber Security and Homeland Security sectors. Winners were selected based on a combination of technological innovation, ability to address a recognized government IT security need, and flexibility to meet both current and future needs.
“We are very proud to have won awards in two categories in this year’s prestigious GSN Awards Programs,” said Doug Means, SVP and General Manager. “In just a few months since its introduction, the RISE 4290HD day/night camera system has captured a tremendous amount of attention in the outdoor surveillance market. We see the RISE 4290HD as the ideal product for many homeland security, border surveillance and critical infrastructure monitoring applications.”
The dual-head design of the RISE 4290HD features a visible spectrum camera providing full 1080p imaging with 30x optical zoom, delivering full frame rate HD images over the entire zoom range and is a very cost-effective, long-range surveillance solution.
Additionally, a second camera head contains a thermal night vision camera which offers a choice of uncooled VOx 640x480 LWIR FPA detector with continuous zoom or fixed focal length hard carbon coated lenses. The RISE 4290HD thermal imaging delivers high-quality video, even in extreme conditions such as total darkness, smoke, atmospheric haze or dust, rain, light foliage, and most types of fog.
All CohuHD Costar camera systems are designed to operate in harsh weather with purged and pressurized IP67 enclosure protection to eliminate the effects of water intrusion, pollutants and corrosives. The ultra-rugged design of all CohuHD RISE products allows the company to offer a lifetime warranty against water ingress.
