A Wireless Video System for Victim Location
The ZistosHD Rescue System offers a state-of-the-art, wireless video inspection tool for technical search personnel involved in victim location operations. The system facilitates visual access to the inside of void spaces in collapsed structures. This telescoping wireless HD pole camera has a user-controlled articulating camera head that can be inserted into a void space in rubble. The system generates high resolution video images that capture the sometimes subtle visual details that can indicate the presence of a trapped victim. The images can be viewed by rescue personnel instantly in the field on a mobile device or tablet. The system is also equipped with a highly sensitive microphone that can pick up the sounds of a victim that may be in near proximity, but not visible.
The new ZistosHD Rescue Video System’s advanced modular design maximizes its use in many rescue-related applications by offering interchangeable video cameras, poles and cables. They are field-swappable, which allows the user to maximize its effectiveness in different environments.
The system has been engineered to offer the highest resolution images and support true 1080P HD video, which can be viewed on a variety of different displays such as smartphones, tablets or computers. The images can be transmitted via wired or wireless methods, and the basic Zistos display tablet can be pole or wrist-mounted. The ZistosHD Rescue System supports up to three different wireless viewers concurrently. An optional Wi-Fi network bridge attachment allows multiple ZistosHD Rescue systems to be simultaneously viewed on a single computer at a command location.
The ZistosHD Rescue Video System features the Universal Handle: ergonomically designed with built-in push buttons that facilitate all operations including illumination level, still image capture, video record, zoom and motorized camera pan functions. The Universal Handle accepts a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that has an easily viewable built-in battery charge level indicator. The battery runtime will typically last from 3.5 to 6 hours depending on camera options and illumination settings.
