Tachyon XC introduces the New OPS HD Night Vision Infrared Helmet Camera

The Tachyon OPS HD Night Vision camera is designed to film in the dark and in extreme low-light situations such as those encountered by police, SWAT, special forces, border control, and hunting. The OPS HD Night Vision can record in daylight, although with reduced color saturation.The Tachyon OPS HD Night Vision also works as a surveillance camera for the home or business. It boasts a 125 degree field of vision and works with both the visible 850nm and the invisible 940nm infrared light sources. It has infinite recording loop technology with which it will begin to record over old footage after it fills its memory of up to 32GB.

The OPS HD Night Vision has a time-lapse photo mode that takes 1 photo every 2 seconds. Each photo is time and date stamped, which comes in very useful when using the camera for surveillance.

Like all Tachyon cameras, the OPS HD Night Vision couldn’t be easier to use. It is ready to go right out of the box and has a simple, one-button operation. For stealth considerations, it is set to make no sound when turning on and off. At the back of the camera is a small, dim LED to let you know when it is turned on. The cameras are also plug-and-play with a PC or a Mac.

Optional accessories include a cable for plugging into a 110v and 12v outlets and external chargers for continuous charging and recording. Another is a water-resistant, silicon rubber cover which makes the camera weatherproof, a great benefit for outdoor monitoring and activities.
