Redvision X series

Redvision’s new, analogue RVX20™ X-SERIES™ rugged dome shines in demanding lighting conditions.

Redvision is pleased to announce the launch of the RVX20™ series, analogue rugged PTZ dome camera, with 20x optical zoom.

The RVX20 is the latest addition to the company’s hugely successful X-SERIES™ range. It joins the 30x zoom, RVX30 analogue model and replaces the existing 18x zoom RVX18 model.

“Redvision’s X-SERIES™ cameras are regarded by many CCTV integrators as the security industry’s benchmark, rugged dome camera,” explained Paul Hucker, Director of Redvision. “The RVX20™ uses Sony, Megapixel, CMOS sensor technology, with improved low-light colour rendition and wide dynamic range. It will dynamically toggle between colour, black and white and day / night modes, to provide optimal images in the most demanding lighting conditions. It also works in conjunction with the modular IR or white-light illumination options.”

The RVX20™ series, designed and manufactured in the UK, can be configured as a dome or PTZ, by simply adding or removing its cover. An optically-correct, flat window minimizes distortion better than a “bubble” type optic and maximizes low-light performance. The RVX20™ has a silicone, long-life wiper to remove rain and surface water, ensuring clear camera visibility in outdoor and challenging environments.

IR and white light illuminator options provide night time viewing at up to 150 metres, with facial recognition beyond 40 metres. Narrow spot and wide flood settings are available, with alarm, preset or manual override activation.

The RVX20™ series has 100 programmable pre-sets, 8 tours, 24 programmable privacy zones and multiple alarm options. The pre-set and tour technology enables the camera to reach a pre-set position in the correct focus and with ideal light mode settings, during a tour or following an alarm.

The RVX20™ can view 10° above horizontal when pendant mounted, without video clipping. It has 360º continuous rotation and an operating temperature range of -25º to +60ºC. Mount options include pedestal, swan, wall and pendant to suit all applications. The camera is available in light grey or black as standard, or to order in any RAL colour or marine finish.

The X-SERIES™ is successfully used in many applications including public space, local authority, hazardous, marine, defence, high security, town centre and rapid deployment systems.
