Active IR Demo Videos
Ascendent Technology Group
offers Extreme Long Range Active IR
, Cooled thermal imager
and long range motorized zoom optics. Ascendent also offer 1024X1280 HD Cooled thermal imager
with lens up to 1500mm but we usually integrate it with Active IR so you get get identification not just detection.
Advatanges Over Thermal Imaging
imaging has significant advantages over thermal imaging by producing images with up to 500% higher resolution. Active IR also has the ability to go through optically pure substances such as windshields. Since thermal relies on heat waves it works great for long range detection but does not have the ability to capture details making virtually useless for identification unlike optical systems.
Unparalleled Active IR Imaging
Unlike Unlike traditional IR
night vision cameras that use standard CCD, lens and LED’s that operate autonomously, Ascendent’s Active IR cameras have integrated AMC (Automatic Processor Control) and EPC (Electronic Photocell Control), MICF and a host of other technologies, to ensure the Optics, image sensor, lens, MICF and Super bright IR LED’s work in tandem to eliminate hot-spots, washout, and under exposure usually associated with IR cameras for flawless active IR performance up to 200m (650ft) Ascendent’s IR are optimally spaced and use different sized and angled LED’s to provide evenly distributed IR to offer both long rage and wide angle illumination the (MICF) mechanical IR cut filter blocks parasitic light before it reaches the sensor father enhancing the image clarity. Ascendent’s IR
cameras are designed to offer absolute performance and use the highest quality components and unique manufacturing processes to increase performance and reliability, such as dual PC board design and hand welding of all the IR LED’s
(Vista and Apex Series). All these components are integrated into Rugged IP 66-68 Nema 4X enclosures constructed of extruded aluminum and thick high impact optically pure polycarbonate to withstand the most brutal assaults and extreme climates for 24/7 surveillance in mission critical applications.
Zoom Laser IR Diode (ZLID)
Ascendent's ZLID laser
illuminators combine laser diode technology with precision engineered optics and sophisticated electronics to provide extreme long range Active IR illumination greatly exceeding both performance and Distance over traditional IR LED illumination in application that require over
200m (650ft) of illumination. Ascendents ZLID (Zoom Laser IR Diodes) Technology (IR Laser) synchronizes IR intensity and area illumination with motorized zoom lens for outstanding active IR performance, eliminating over exposure, washout, and hot-spots for unparalleled performance at distances up to3.5km (11,500ft) in complete darkness.
Series PTZ delivers long range day/night surveillance.
Its powerful 20-3000mm motorized zoom lens can detect intruders at distances of up to 35km. The high-output, continuous-wave laser provides recognition for up to 8km and identification up to 3km. Ascendents Sigma series provides unparalleled video surveillance and situation assessment for perimeter protection and border defense.

Industry Leading Performance
Ascendent’s Active IR
module combines laser diode technology, quality precision optics and sophisticated electronics. This creates long range active IR illumination greatly exceeding both the performance and distance of traditional IR LED illumination. The ASCLIR3000M-810 (IR Laser)
synchronizes IR intensity and area illumination with motorized zoom optics for flawless active IR
imaging. This eliminates overexposure, washout and hot-spots for outstanding night time performance at great distances.
Superior Image Quality
The Sigma series incorporates highly tuned 1/2 ” EMCCD imaging equipment that is optimized for long range surveillance to render superb detail rich color by day. At night or 0 lux environments the Sigma series intensifies IR light
on an electron level for clean crisp monochrome images. This in tandem with its laser illuminator to capture minute details resulting in identification and prosecution of trespassing parties.
Long Range Zoom Optics
IR optimized optics for 24/7 long range surveillance up to 90,000Ft (30KM) by day and (3.2km) 10,000ft in 0lux (complete darkness) while maintaining excellent clarity. Making it the clear choice for perimeter protection, homeland security, critical infrastructure and military logistics.

Ascendent understands DVRs must run 24/7 and offers a number of optional customizations such as Raid 6
redundant OS, solid state drives and dual power supplies for unparalleled reliability.
IP and Analog why choose ?
What Ascendent Technology has done is allowed X4S standalone DVR's
to work as IP server so that our DVR's convert analog cameras into IP
cameras (like IP servers 4/8/16ch) in a U1 or U2 rack mountable case. This way you get the best of both worlds you get a DVR that works autonomously with on site storage, playback and searching but also a fully functioning IP devices allowing video to be distributed over networks and record on NVR's to create a humongous CCTV system when using our Tri-fusion
Scalability and flexibility
Ascendent's standalone, PC- DVR's
and IP cameras can record at one resolution and stream at another, and have integrated VBR and CBR to totally manage the amount of data and bandwidth that is used by each camera individually giving you the security and reliability of analog with the flexibility and interoperability of an IP based system with unlimited expandability by adding 1-64 cameras at a time. Ascendent's X4 Trifusion
platform integrates our X4 PC DVRs, X4S Standalone DVRs,X4-IP-Pro IP Servers, and our entire line of X4 IP cameras and supports HD MP cameras allowing you to stream and archive video to and from multiple sites simultaneously. The Tri-fusion platform not only manages video but can integrate with cameras, access control, analytics, biometrics, building management, NVR/DVRs, and other 3rd party applications from the leading security providers. Making the X4 Trifusion the clear choice for professional security integrators. Cost Effective
The X4 Trifusion
platform takes full advantage or prior security investments and existing wiring infrastructures while offering the best of breed technology creating a cost effective long term solution to suite the needs of small business to global enterprises. (unlike most companies Ascendent does not charge for their software you buy an IP product it will ship with our 64CH NVR server/client software)
Best of Breed Technology
At the heart of any DVR is the compression technology ascendents X4
platform uses the latest H.264
ime compression and uses a fully optimized algorithm based on Digital Signal Processor ( DSP ) technology. Display and recording of video and audio are in real-time and fully synchronized in both modes. Video feeds are directly transmitted from the video capture card or encoder to the display frame buffer and the compressed stream data is directly sent to the host's memory. The transmission process doesn't need any intervention from the host computer's CPU, greatly saving resources of the host computer's processor. The result is flawless images and sound regardless of how many channels are being monitored or reviewed. Ascendent's H.264 codec has a number of significant advantages over traditional compression algorithms such as superior image quality, and eliminates motion blur for clean crisp detail rich images. H.264
file sizes are up to 30% smaller than MPEG-4, 60% smaller than MPEG-2, and exponentially smaller than MJPEG. The smaller the the faster they can be transmitted and processed improving both FPS and speed. The file size has a number of advantages besides streaming capabilities, it also determines the recording storage time, how much you can back up at once, how fast it renders and searches video. A DVR's compression algorithm impacts every aspect of a DVR's performance and determines the image quality, file
size, and longevity of storage and is often the most important spec of any DVR.
Reliability and Performance
Ascendent uses server grade components to provide the highest performance possible with embedded dynamic technologies such as Smart Memory Access which fully utilizes available data bandwidth allowing for up to 64ch channels of video on one DVR. This combined with high speed memory load means search times are greatly reduced. The latest I7 ntel core 2 quad processors are built on micro-architecture enabling DVRs to run faster, cooler and quieter for optimum performance
