OceanView Technologies Inc. announced the newest product in its extensive line-up of multi-sensor night-vision camera systems; the Apollo II HD. This is the Highest Definition Thermal Imaging camera available in the marketplace today at this price. It has an MSRP of only $17,995 and is shipping immediately. The OceanView Apollo II HD incorporates a 640x480 resolution thermal imaging camera with its new 4x digital zoom and an ultra-low-light camera in the same popular 360° pan and tilt housing as the Apollo II Camera. The Apollo II enables the user to see clearly not only in total darkness but also in a wide variety of poor lighting conditions including low-light, heavy rain, bright sun and some fog. The low-light sensor amplifies even barely discernable light to render a crisp detailed picture in any light condition except for total darkness. The combination of thermal and low-light in one unit makes boating more safe and enjoyable and extends the day into total darkness. Floating debris, channel markers and other vessels are easy to see. The camera has an on-control-unit camera position indicator and a home button. With the new LCD control unit, the user has fingertip control and a clear view of the simple menu. The Apollo II HD, like the Apollo II, now has an IP control option for those users wanting to view images from the camera via an off vessel internet connection
