Wireless Technology, Inc will launch the latest model of its high definition H.264 HD30 Sidewinder traffic surveillance camera next quarter--touting new features that improve visibility and weatherproofing at ITS America San Jose.
According to Lester Miyasaki, national sales manager for the company, the new Sidewinder will include 30X optical zoom, wide dynamic range to minimise glare and shadows, electric conductive ITO window to improve clarity in foggy conditions and a hydrophilic silicon window that breaks down dirt and dust.
The camera is also IP67 compliant with or without pressurisation, making it virtually weatherproof in any conditions.
The Sidewinder can tilt and pan 360 degrees, allowing it to see around blind spots caused by poles, buildings or landscaping.
It supports a variety of resolutions (1080p, 720p, standard definition and below standard definition) and can support seven streams and one SD analog video.
Miyasaki said that the Sidewinder has been in operation for more than 20 years, and this latest upgrade will help traffic agencies better monitor roadways in any weather or environmental conditions.
