Gosport, Hampshire, UK – Iris Innovations, a leader in affordable dash cam security and situational awareness systems, today announced the launch of a new line of ultra-affordable dual-spectrum IP thermal PTZ cameras – ATOM.


The cameras feature a two-megapixel high-definition visual spectrum camera with 10x optical and 10x digital zoom, and two high-resolution 12-micron thermal core options (400×300 and 640×512 resolutions). Both options offer an ultra-sensitive detection range of


“Thermal imaging has become increasingly common on recreational and commercial vessels,” said Carl Hitchcock, Managing Director of Iris Innovations. “The big factor limiting adoption has always been price. Our new ATOM cameras not only offer exceptional image quality and ease of use, but come at a price that will make them as common an addition to a vessel as radar systems have become.


Available with sealed side entry or base entry cable options, the cameras are housed in a rugged yet compact IP66 enclosure, designed to protect the unit from the harshest environmental conditions. Each camera module has its own IP address, which means the cameras can be configured, controlled and switched separately, and are compatible with many marine chartplotters. An RS485 serial data connection is also provided to maximize control options, allowing cameras to be controlled via NVR or computer, as well as Iris’ CMAC range of camera management systems or CCTV joystick controllers supporting supports the Pelco-D protocol. The entire unit is eight inches (206 mm) high with a base diameter of six inches (160 mm) and weighs just under four and a half pounds (2 kg).


ATOM is available through Iris’ global reseller network, the Fort Lauderdale hub and directly from Iris UK. For more information on the entire Iris Innovations product line, please visit www.boat-cameras.com.
