Model 8100

Standalone Miniature Automatic Video Tracker

The Model 8100 Standalone Miniature Automatic Video Tracker (AVT) represents the latest tracker technology in our continued commitment to product innovation and improvement. The tracker provides the user a system easily adapted to a wide range of targets and tracking environments. The 8000 Series video trackers are designed to meet the small form factor, low power and reduced cost of surveillance and UAV markets while retaining the performance demanded of all our video tracker products. The Model 8100 measures just 4.5 by 5.0 inches and operates off a single unregulated DC voltage. While dual analog video inputs are standard, digital video configurations including Camera Link, HD-SDI and HDMI are also available. With gigabit Ethernet and multiple serial interfaces, the Model 8100 can control a pan/tilt, visible and IR cameras/lenses and a laser rangefinder.

The Model 8100's standard features and options permit easy adaptation to even the most complex and demanding tactical, surveillance and industrial applications. The system is structured with an open architecture allowing easy incorporation of specialized features and algorithms.

Optionally, the Model 8101 tracker provides the same performance with a dual target capability.
