New OceanView Night Vision Camera with "On Screen" Control

Denmead, UK – April 7, 2011
A leading supplier of night-vision cameras to the finest yachts in the world, OceanView has announced the release of the Apollo 2 Xi which instead of a separate controller, utilizes an on-screen controller to make it easier to control and view the images. A small, fixed waterproof mouse and a wireless mouse are supplied to add flexibility, as either mouse can be used to control all the camera’s functions via the on screen menu while simultaneously viewing the images. Eliminating the need for an LCD controller also increases the space available at the helm.
The Apollo 2 Xi’s on-screen controller is a truly flexible solution as it can be used with any marine display, including touch screens or on board TV. OceanView offer further flexibility by providing an optional handheld, wireless tablet to control the camera and in May, there will be an option for an iPad app for those owners wanting to operate the camera from their iPad.
Supplied with IP as standard, users can check, view and control the Apollo 2 Xi camera from remote locations on or off the boat. A simple Ethernet installation completes the package.
Standard features of the Apollo 2 Xi include full 360° continuous pan, tilt and 2x digital zoom. There is also an instant home, an on-screen camera direction indicator, a variable colour palette.
Similar to the standard Apollo 2, the Apollo Xi has a thermal camera (320 × 240, 2x digital zoom) and low-light camera in one unit enabling both of the Apollo 2 Xi’s images to be displayed simultaneously on two displays or on one display with a split screen. It is also available as a HD unit (640×480, 4x zoom) or in thermal only (TH) or low-light only (LL) models.
Lastly, the series also includes the Apollo 2 Xi F which has been designed specifically to be integrated with the standard Furuno NavNet 3D controller. This unit is not supplied with any OceanView controller thus saving more space at the helm and making control even easier.
