“Municipal budgets have been squeezed these past few years. It’s just not feasible--or even necessary--to perform crawler inspection on an entire sewer or storm water collection system when a simple zoom survey tells you what you need to know.
Randolph, NJ (PRWEB) October 18, 2010
Powered by patent-pending Haloptic™ technology, the new QuickView® doubles the range of conventional zoom inspection cameras while targeting illumination with vastly improved precision. This superior performance makes it ideal for performing a rapid, complete assessment of pipeline infrastructure. Other stand-out features of the new QuickView include a pole-mounted viewer/recorder with wireless roaming; an optional auxiliary camera for manhole viewing; and a rugged travel case to organize system components in one convenient kit.
“We’ve seen municipal budgets squeezed these past few years,” says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight. “It’s just not feasible—or even necessary—to perform crawler inspection on an entire collection system when a simple zoom survey tells you what you need to know. We’re extremely proud of this QuickView®; it’s nothing short of a revolution in zoom inspection technology, and it sets a very high standard for range, detail and precision.”
At the core of the new QuickView is patent-pending Haloptic technology, an engineered arrangement of lamp, reflector and camera whereby a perfectly aligned halo of illumination surrounds the camera view. This concentrated beam floods pipe walls with up to 20 times more light than conventional technology; illuminates distant targets for maximum clarity and detail; and eliminates the need for any realignment during inspection.
Making it easier than ever to document inspections, QuickView’s pole-mounted viewer/recorder presents real-time footage on a 3.6” color LCD, and stores up to 16 GB of video and still images on a micro SD card. The monitor’s wide viewing angle and tilt-mount make observation effortless, even when the QuickView is deeply extended or used overhead. Alternately, the monitor undocks for wireless viewing at distances up to 32’. Multiple monitors set to the same frequency allow multiple personnel to view the same real-time footage.
Designed to view all aspects of pipeline infrastructure in a single pass, QuickView’s auxiliary wide-angle camera with diffuse illumination inspects manholes and vessels with the flip of a switch. This optional accessory simply attaches to the rear of the main QuickView camera head.
To maximize portability and speed setup, the entire QuickView system travels in a rugged, waterproof roller case with telescoping tow handle. Camera, viewer/recorder, vest, controls, battery and charger fit snugly inside, while the pole clips into brackets on the exterior.
Other pro features set QuickView apart from conventional zoom inspection cameras, including:
- Onscreen distance measurement, which displays distance to in-focus targets onscreen at the touch of a button.
- Image stabilization, which combines spring dampers with video stabilization circuitry to maintain a steadier view.
- View centering, which lets you align QuickView’s camera view to the pipe centerline in seconds. Simply adjust the foot to the graduation corresponding to the pipe diameter.
QuickView comes with a safety yellow operator vest to hold the battery and joystick controller. Its collapsible carbon fiber pole is offered in 16’, 24’ and 30’ lengths. Available accessories allow drop-line inspection, pole extension, and more.
