IRIS INNOVATIONS EXPANDS CMAC COMPATIBILITY WITH AFFORDABLE AND COMPACT GARMIN TD50 DISPLAYS
Gosport, Hampshire, United Kingdom – Iris Innovations, leader in affordable on-board camera security and situational awareness systems, announced today it has partnered with Garmin to release the innovative IrisControl app, now compatible with the affordable and compact Garmin TD50 five-inch display.
Iris has re-designed the IrisControl software, in conjunction with its CMAC range of camera management and control systems, into a control pad style application for Garmin’s new low-cost and compact TD50 displays. This innovation delivers a dynamic and feature-rich interface in Garmin’s low cost, 5-inch touchscreen format, allowing users to view and control onboard cameras from the IrisControl interface even if users aren’t using a compatible Garmin system.
Compatible with both analogue IP and HD cameras, Iris CMAC combines all of the main elements of a full-featured security and control system into a very stylish enclosure, complete with high-end waterproof connectors and wood-effect end caps. The system features digital video recording, alarm management, network and serial data management, and a removable, shock-proof hard drive caddy. The unit’s built-in recorder is fully configurable to maximize storage time, allowing users to adjust resolution, frame rate, motion detection parameters and more; and CMAC’s HDMI output delivers the best live, high-definition footage to chartplotters, TVs and dedicated monitors, as well as standard definition devices that are connected via an HDMI to composite convertor. In addition, the system can be connected to a boat’s WiFi router enabling all on-board cameras to be viewed on smart phones, tablets or computers.
“In 2021, we launched the CMAC range of camera management and control systems for boats,” said Carl Hitchcock, managing director, Iris Innovations. “Hosting the unique and feature packed IrisControl app for the Garmin OneHelm platform, CMAC provided boat owners with a single unified camera management, control and recording interface. Now our proven software is greatly enhanced, allowing us to offer Garmin’s TD50 with the same great functionality, giving a larger audience access to our camera systems with the benefits of the exceptional build quality and support synonymous with Garmin products. This truly is a collaboration we are proud of.”
As well as delivering the industry-leading Iris camera system to boat owners without Garmin systems, the TD50 interface is ideal for larger vessels where screens are set back out of reach or not touch based. By installing a compact Garmin TD50 version of the IrisControl interface into a captain’s chair or within arm’s reach, users can now fully control, switch manage and review their on board camera video.
