CLOSING THE DISTANCE.
The Zenmuse Z30 is the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market and is an essential tool for aerial inspection work. By combining a 30x optical zoom with a 6x digital zoom, the system can efficiently provide users with a vantage of their assets from a safe perspective not possible previously available.
The Z30 is designed to integrate seamlessly with the Matrice 200 series airframe and will work right out of the box. This is the perfect platform for inspecting wind turbine generators, cell towers, and industrial facilities, as the high resolution, high zoom camera systems can provide a detailed look at equipment, structures, and wires from a safe distance.
The Z30 system can provide essential support in emergency response situations, as it provides the command center with high resolution ‘eyes in the sky’ from a safe vantage point and one that will not put the drone at risk of interfering with actions on the ground.
The Z30 features a 30x optical and 6x digital zoom, which can provide a total magnification up to 180x. Essentially giving the Z30 a focal range equivalent to an astonishing 10mm – 1,200mm. Making it the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market.
With Zenmuse TapZoom, focusing and zooming on a feature is as easy as a tap of the finger. Simply tap a finger on the screen and the camera will automatically adjust its focal length to provide an enlarged view of that area. The system provides a quick and intuitive zoom and focus interface, zooming in to show minute details in just seconds.
The 1/2.8 CMOS camera sensor has a variable aperture range of F1.6-4.7, and features 2.3 stops of exposure compensation. The sensor is capable of capturing 1080p 30fps video (MP4 or MOV) or single shot, 3 or 5 shot burst mode still imagery, so multiple frames of moving objects, such as wind turbine, can be quickly and easily captured. But with a long zoom comes the potential for image distortion caused by vibration and movement; however, the Z30 is mounted on a three-axis gimbal with ±0.01o of angular vibration tolerance range, which ensures the system is capable of capturing high quality and smooth imagery even when zoomed to the maximum extent.
Aerial platforms are becoming an essential tool for businesses, as they allow operators to efficiently and safely asses and inspect their resources and collect information that would previously not be possible. The Zenmuse Z30 was designed with these situations in mind and provides a new set of eyes in the sky, and an up-close perspective from afar that would not otherwise be available. The Z30 systems allows operators to not only work more efficiently, but more safely. And after all, isn’t safety and efficiently the name of the game?
