An Easy-To-Control Night-Vision Camera

OceanView, a supplier of night-vision cameras, has released the Apollo 2 Xi, which utilizes an on-screen controller instead of a separate unit. This makes the camera easier to control and the images easier to view.

An included small, fixed waterproof mouse and wireless mouse give the user maximum flexibility, as either can control all of the camera’s functions via the on-screen menu while simultaneously viewing images.

Users can check, view and control the Apollo 2 Xi camera from remote locations on or off the boat. The on-screen controller can be used with any marine display, including touch screens or onboard TVs.
OceanView’s Apollo 2 Xi has a price of $12,995.
