Inertial stabilisation for PTZ cameras.

Directed Perception : 10 April, 2007  (New Product)
Vehicle and ship mounted pan-tilt-zoom cameras gain improved image stability and quality using rugged inertial stabilisation module from Directed Perception.
Directed Perception announces the availability of a breakthrough low-cost inertial stabilisation module (ISM) for its popular PTU-D300 pan-tilt familiy.The ISM delivers unprecedented cost/performance in stabilising any type of payload for both land mobile and maritime applications. The ISM dramatically improves video imagery, allows the use of narrower fields-of-view, and enables tracking and detection while on-the-move. The PTU-D300 with ISM provides a rugged, low-cost solution for stabilized pointing on a wide range of boats and ground vehicles.

The ISM actively controls the PTU to compensate for boat/vehicle motion, keeping your point of interest always in the field-of-view. The ISM allows persistent line-of-sight pointing during large vehicle maneuvers, freeing the operator from tedious manual control. Inertial stabilization does not suffer from the same limitations as electronic video stabilization and allows for stabilization of all payload types.

The ISM is an advanced strapdown design and consists of a precision 3-axis gyro embedded in the pan-tilt unit, and a small 3in x 4in processing module. It works with existing pan-tilt applications to provide a drop-in solution for improving mobile camera and antenna applications. A software API is included to allow fast and simple integration with OEM applications. The API allows applications real-time control of the pan-tile during stabilization. This enables a wide range of application uses including joystick control, video tracking, radar integration, slew-to-queue and more. A built-in Ethernet interface and webserver provide simple configuration and control of the module and attached pan-tilt unit.

The ISM has been developed and refined over 2 years. It has been fielded with select OEMs and is now available as a standad option on the PTU-D300. The ISM is the latest addition to Directed Perception's growing portfolio of rugged, precision pan-tilt products with advanced features such as geo-pointing.
