Advanced PTZ Platform Designed for Harsh Environments

Designed from the outset to support operation in harsh environments, the Hydra™ 1000 ruggedised PTZ uses technology new to and uniquely developed for the CCTV industry. Hydra achieves outstanding and ultra-reliable performance in an immensely rugged housing manufactured from die-cast aluminium. Each axis is driven directly without intermediate belts or gears by Overview’s unique Servotorq direct-drive, integrated servo motors to give a previously unattainable level of positional accuracy, repeatability, wide dynamic range and smoothness – this results in military performance at commercial cost, with very long life and low cost of ownership.

Hydra is a highly flexible platform accommodating a range of HD IP cameras with up to 30x zoom, or a range of thermal cameras. The integral adaptive illuminator covers at least 200m, and rotation is continuous in both pan and tilt.

Two variants are available; the single-camera Hydra 1000 Uno and the Hydra 1000 Duo, which offers a two camera system typically combining a visual camera with a thermal imaging core.
