IRIS290 Thermal Imaging Night Vision PTZ Camera

384×288 Resolution, 19mm Lens, Colour Palettes + Image Enhancement


Using the new Q+ Thermal Core from Iris, the IRIS290 uses superior thermal imaging technology to extend your time and improve your safety on the water – Day and Night.

Thermal cameras work just as well in the day as at night, and can help to see through haze, fog and glare as well as in pitch black. Not only are thermal cameras excellent tools to pick up objects not detected or unrecognisable by radar, but they are also essential tools in man overboard situations. Should a friend, family or crew member go over board, your Iris thermal camera will spot their difference in temperature easily against the sea and sky. In fact, Iris thermal cameras, with a sensitivity of <50mK are so good, they will display the reflection of clouds on the water in the dead of night.

The IRIS290 boasts a resolution of 384 x 288 pixels, which is 44% greater than other cameras in its class. It’s higher resolution not only mean improved pictures, but also improve digital zoom performance and offer a greater field of view from the 19mm lens.

The camera also features six reversible colour palettes to help you distinguish objects in different conditions and ease viewing at night, and Iris’s superb ICE™ Image Contrast Enhancement feature to boost clarity in scenes of low thermal contrast…

Control your IRIS290 with our sleek, waterproof IRIS595 controller joystick. The 595 features a carefully designed, intuitive menu system to allow the user to swiftly navigate through the menu to access the cameras many features. The 2 axis micro-joystick allows you to accurately position the camera even in the roughest seas, and watch out for our new chart-plotter integration Apps, currently under development that will facilitate control from leading chart plotters!

The IRIS290 has continuous 360˚ pan operation and a 210˚ tilt range and features user definable preset memory positions, a variety of scans and tours – with adjustable speed settings, manual shutter control and automatic standby operation to preserve the life of your camera.

We’ve also made the camera extremely easy to install by combining the power, video and data signals into a single CAT5e connection*. This not only makes your installers life easier, but reduces costs!

Iris’s goal is to provide  essential, even life saving, thermal technology at an affordable price. Like all cameras in the NightRunner range, the IRIS290 is a fraction of the cost of it’s competitors, opening up this amazing technology to the wider boating market…
