The VZ-500 is a highly capable and reliable electro-
optical infrared (EO/IR) multi-sensor camera system with
continuous zoom capabilities. The VZ-500 is a cost-effective,
compact, mid-range surveillance system that is used in a
variety of security applications, such as protecting critical
infrastructure, securing borders, airports and ports of entry.
The GD VZ-500 family has proven its value, utility and reliability,
serving worldwide for over a decade. This newest addition
builds on its trusted ancestry with a more capable EO sensor
and lens that offers an upgrade path to EO HD with an optional
IP interface. In standard definition (SD), the sensor offers
upgraded EO performance and features over previous SD on
existing infrastructure with the option of extending to HD.
Featuring a proprietary, ruggedized design and cooled sensor
technology, the VZ-500 captures precise target signatures
in Mid-Wave IR, day or night and in color during daylight and
transition. The VZ-500 includes an integrated precision 2 axis
positioning system with high reliability direct drive architecture.
