Establishing a mutually beneficial collaborative effort, OceanView's Apollo II night vision camera can now be fully integrated into Furuno's NavNet 3D navigation system. With this cooperative endeavor, the Apollo II is the only thermal system that can be managed without an external controller, providing a seamless, complete package. Yacht owners can control their OceanView camera's functions, such as pan, tilt and zoom through the Furuno system.
"OceanView cameras are easily compatible with our NavNet 3D system, making them an ideal collaborator," said Dean Kurutz, Furuno marketing manager. "We enjoy a good working relationship with OceanView and full integration takes it to the next level."
"Helm space is at a premium on many boats," continued Kurutz. "With the Apollo II camera fully integrated into NavNet 3D, there are no extra controls to take up space. It makes monitoring and controlling a boat's night vision system quick and easy."
"While the Apollo II camera is the first to be integrated, our Poseidon and Zeus cameras are also compatible with NavNet 3D," said OceanView CEO Mike Bader. "This enables owners to find the best solution for their night vision needs."
The NavNet 3D system makes navigating a vessel easier than ever before with TimeZero technology facilitating chart redraw, zooming, chart panning, changing chart display modes and other chart handling functions without limited range presets. It operates in a fully digitized environment with highly sensitive digital sensors for radar and fish finders. Built on an Ethernet network, NavNet 3D enables users to add as many components as they desire along with up to ten displays to create their perfect navigational suite.
The Apollo II is a thermal camera and low-light camera in one unit. Both images can be displayed simultaneously on two displays or on one display with split screen. The Apollo II is the least expensive multiple camera system available in the marketplace and sells for less when used with Furuno NavNet 3D as there is no external controller required. It is available in four models: thermal and low-light, thermal only, low-light only and HD. The Apollo II is ideal for sportfishermen, expedition yachts, megayachts and sport yachts, as well as commercial, military, fire and police boats.
