| Pyser SGI Limited to supply Fujinon's CCTV cameras to a secialist Inverness based company WIldlife-for-all|
A Fujinon D60x16.7SR4DE-V21 extreme long rame long range, high definition CCTV, day/night telephoto zoom lens, supplied by UK/Ireland distributor Pyser-SGI Limited to specialist Inverness based company Wildlife-for-all, is being used in a land-based remote controlled camera system in NE Scotland for watching whales and dolphins off shore in the North Sea.
The viewing system has been installed by Wildlife-for-all for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) at the Scottish Dolphin Centre, Spey Bay, and is one of other WDCS land based watching sites situated in Scotland.The Fujinon D60x16.7 lens is used with a remote controlled camera pan/tilt unit, with remote lens zoom/focus/iris function, mounted high on the chimney of a suitable building for the best panoramic sea view. Whales and dolphins can be watched live from a viewing centre, or later from a recorded picture.
Said Peter Mackay of Wildlife-for-all: "We chose the Fujinon D60x16.7SR4DE-V21 telephoto zoom lens not only for its high magnification properties but its ability to give clear, bright pictures of whales and dolphins out at sea - providing viewers with dramatic detailed activity shots at a distance."
Commented Paul Goodwin, Pyser-SGI's Divisional Head, Broadcast and CCTV Products: "Although the Fujinon D60x16.7 is designed primarily to meet the most up to date, high resolution 24 hour, long range surveillance requirements of today's security professionals, we are finding that, with its extreme telephoto range (especially at 2x) combined with its high definition picture clarity, it is also attracting interest not only for wildlife but other applications including broadcast-type assignments."
