Bowtech’s Surveyor, colour zoom camera utilises Sony’s latest ExView HADTM CCD technology, delivering exceptional picture quality with a 36:1 optical zoom lens and a 12x digital zoom, as well as a horizontal resolution of 550 TV lines, all within a 4000 metre rated high quality Titanium housing, with a sapphire window.

One of the many unique features of this camera is the advanced backlight compensation technology, which dramatically improves the camera’s dynamic range, resulting in clear image reproduction in extreme high-contrast environments, known as wide dynamic.

The camera captures the same image twice, first with a normal shutter speed and then with a higher shutter speed. The dark areas are captured at normal shutter speed and the bright areas are captured at the high shutter speed. These are then combined into one image, using an advanced DSP LSI, thus clearly reproducing high-contrast images of the original scene.
