GSA customers can now capture the night with the new Ecliptus, night vision GoPro® camera and for a very limited time, below the micropurchase limit for Government Card Holders. The Ecliptus will be available for $3,495—a $2,000 discount—during the month of June by Aviation Specialties Unlimited, Inc. (ASU) a Boise, Idaho-based night vision company on GSA Contract GS-07F-0345J.
“We have received great feedback on the Ecliptus product,” said ASU President Jim Winkel. “The Ecliptus is rugged, lightweight, and affordable. Because the Ecliptus offers the unique combination of remote video recording with night vision capabilities using the GoPro® HERO 4 camera, it is very appealing for law enforcement agencies, special task forces, search and rescue crews and numerous other public service organizations. The GSA special introductory pricing makes it even easier to purchase.”
The Ecliptus can record both day and night. This allows video documentation and still images for security, training, sporting, wildlife research and media production in extremely low light scenarios that were nearly impossible to document previously.
“We know that many agencies may need multiple Ecliptus camera systems, but this GSA introductory price will assure that at least the first one can be ordered without a lot of complications while also adhering to government buying guidelines. Once agencies see the value of our new product, we will work with them to arrange bulk orders, purchase orders, etc.”
The Ecliptus weighs less than one pound, is integrated with the GoPro® HERO4 and captures images at 12 megapixels with a burst mode at 30 frames per second. It captures night vision images utilizing an AN/PVS-14 objective lens, records in ultra-high definition (4X HD), and stores these images using a 16 GB SD card. Images and video can also be viewed in real time using WiFi-enabled smart devices. The camera modes can be controlled using the GoPro button controls and optionally from remote mobile devices. The MSRP of the new Ecliptus is $5,499.
