SPI Corp's Marine PTZ Thermal Camera combines multiple sensors into a compact and affordable imaging platform for ocean and freshwater vessels SPI's latest introduction to the market is a low cost Marine PTZ thermal camera for vessels of all sizes. The SPI CORP M1-D Thermal Marine PTZ is said to be the first to combine multiple sensor technologies into a small lightweight all weather system. The M1-D Marine PTZ features a high-resolution thermal camera, a low light visual CCTV camera and a bore sighted laser pointer. The thermal camera is a heat sensing technology that can see in complete darkness or full daylight while the CCTV camera provides the operator the traditional video camera view. The Marine PTZ market is a niche market composed of a few large companies and many smaller entrants. Vessels that use Marine PTZ products are typically law enforcement craft, military reconasence vessels, coast guard and private yachts and SPI say their Marine PTZ systems are built to withstand the rigors of the marine environment. The Laser Pointer is intended to aid in man overboard searches as well as enforcement operations coordination.
