AUTOMATED WILDLIFE VIDEO RECORDING SYSTEMS

If it walks, crawls, flies or slithers by day or at night then we probably have a camera system to video record it

We have been designing & manufacturing specialised, wildlife video monitoring systems in Australia since 1989. Our equipment has been used exclusively for conducting detailed studies of many of Australia's most endangered animals:- . Helmeted Honey eater - Gilbert's Potoroo - Western ground Parrot - Leadbeater's Possum - Banded Stilt

HD- EXTREME - portable video recording system

hd extreme

The HD-Extreme is our fourth generation digital video recording system incorporating both 3G & WiFi connectivity. Easily configured using your smart phone or notebook. Built tough for operating in remote harsh environments & designed specifically for long duration video monitoring applications. Low power consumption & compact size make this system ideal for Wildlife or Habitat Monitoring & Rural Security Surveillance applications.

HD-Extreme is very simple & fast to set up it can be deployed in less than five minutes. Cameras are pre-focused & require no adjustments. Housed in a robust Pelican case the system small enough to carry into the field in a back pack.

HD-Extreme expands the potential for long duration, detailed behavioral studies of animals in the wild. The quantification of animal time budgets, interactions & species assemblages at gathering points. Visits of predators, interactions, hatching, fledging & other events are reliably recorded; events which motion activated trail cameras often fail to capture. HD-Extreme continuous recording systems are ideal for any field situation where long-term /video recording is required: Dens - Watering & Feed Locations - Prey Sites - Animal Highways

NO 3G COVERAGE NOT A PROBLEM

HD-Extreme generates its own ad-hoc WiFi network which operates anywhere, it does not require a 3G connection to work. In remote areas with no 3G coverage you can log onto the HD-Extreme using your WiFi device, smart phone or notebook. It's as simple as that.

PROGRAMMABLE OPTIONS

System normally records continuous full motion video at 25 images per second. It has the following user programmable options:

BATTERY POWERED

HD-Extreme is powered from a rechargeable 12 volt battery, recommended battery size is from 20 to 55 amp hour. Solar backup is available, with adequate sunlight the system is capable of running for weeks or months & almost indefinitely. We also manufacture a 20 amp hour Portable Battery Pack.

FULLY AUTOMATED

HD-Extreme is microprocessor controlled & fully automated. The system monitors the battery state of charge, it will shut down when the battery becomes low or the unit overheats.

 

PORTABLE BATTERY PACK for HD- Extreme

Rechargeable SLA battery with solar regulator housed in an easy to transport Pelican case

battery pack with solarField portable power source for your HD-Extreme. Comprises rugged Pelican case with sturdy mounting bracket, internal battery management circuitry & provision for a 20 amp hour rechargeable SLA battery.

Solar panel is 30 x 37 x 3cm thick fitted with heavy duty cabling with military specification connectors.

DAY/NIGHT CAMERAS

farm cameraWe assemble our own cameras. Day/Night cameras are suitable for most wildlife applications including: close up monitoring of nests, filming inside tree hollows, underground in wombat burrows & dens, in caves, deployed on game trails, dams, feed or bait stations.

Each application is different. We tailor the combination of objective lens, focus adjustment & illuminator intensity to suit your specific field application. Our nest monitoring camera is especially designed for filming bird nests, it is optimised for operation at ranges of 1 ~1.5 meters from the nest, field of view at 1 meter is 80 x 50 cm.

Predator safe - Day/ Night cameras feature an array of 940 nm light emitting diodes which safely illuminates the target area with covert infra red light, invisible to both predators & humans. Conventional cameras have 850 or 880 nm leds; visible to the human eye as a dull red glow, to nocturnal predators it lights up the target species like a spotlight, potentially increasing the risk of night predation.
