GOST has unveiled a new line of low-profile cameras called the Mini-Dome LED 1080P SS that can be installed vertically or in bulkheads, rather than overhead.
“We are constantly listening to our customers and trying to develop new solutions that meet their varied and individual needs,” Brian Kane, chief technology officer at GOST, stated in a press release. “Our new cameras give better performance and a more discreet installation than existing cameras on the market.”
During installation, the camera’s inner ball can be adjusted and then locked into position by tightening the outer bezel to achieve the desired view. The camera’s waterproof, stainless-steel case is rated for a wide range of operating temperatures. It measures 3 inches (80mm) in diameter and 1 inch (28mm) above the mounting face, so it’s small enough to be used in cramped locations.
Features include built-in IR LED illuminators, which provide a 33-foot range of night vision. The 1.8 mm wide-angle lens comes standard, with 3.6 mm and 2.8 mm lens options available.
What kinds of onboard uses does GOST recommend for this camera? Reversing and docking, onboard security and general surveillance.
