Endangered No More: Zero Risks with the New Tarsier Closed Circuit Thermal Imager


– Several thousands of miles across the sea is the beautiful island of Bohol, home to the famous Philippine Tarsier considered to be one among thousands of endangered species in the world today. What’s so interesting about this small animal is its unique ability to rotate its head 180 degrees. Add up the tarsier’s very large eyes, reputed to be the only animal to have such big eye to body ratio, and you have an animal that is able to see exceptionally well at night. And with those exceptional night vision eyes and movable ears that can almost hear any movement, the result is an animal that perfectly embodies the kind of security we must have today.

You have probably heard the news about the Philippine hostage situation wherein some Hong Kong Chinese nationals were carelessly held hostage on the bus for almost 12 hours. Ironically, with today’s CCTV technology, we find that there is still more to learn out there. Simply put, we need more security innovations and advancements for the merciless threats of today. This is why a new kind of closed circuit thermal imager or CCTI is being developed by Manifest Marketing Limited.

Inspired by the Tarsier’s astounding abilities, the promising Tarsier Closed Circuit Thermal Imager is definitely something to look out for. First things first; one of the best features of the Tarsier CCTI is its 24-hour 7 days a week functionality. This means that this great tool will immerse its extra-sensitive eyes for you every single minute, so you won’t have to worry about getting breached by those pesky thieves at night. The tarsier CCTI works at its best at night. Even the shadow is no excuse and the various light conditions brought about by fog and smoke will not affect the efficiency of the tarsier at all. Now that’s really something worthy of a second look.

If you are questioning the Tarsier’s durability and life expectancy, it helps to know that the International Electrotechnical Commission or IEC through the International Protection Rating Code has rated the Tarsier to be IP66 certified. This means that the Tarsier CCTI is highly effective against solid and liquid intrusion. Talk about maximum durability and resistance! Also built for the extremes, the Tarsier has a maximum temperature threshold of +80 degree Celsius and a minimum threshold of -40 degrees Celsius. The whole product is also metal-coated with aluminum for ensured life expectancy.

Another interesting factor to check out is the Tarsier’s lenses that are both adaptable and flexible to various ranges and distances. Equipped with features such as the zoom feature and control over brightness and contrast, you have the perfect surveillance and protection for your business and home. Use the Tarsier CCTI anywhere you want. With a very easy set-up and installation procedure, you will be on your way to finally getting the good night’s sleep you have been longing to have for many days now.

To start using the new Tarsier CCTI surveillance system, you can visit the Hong Kong based company Manifest Marketing Limited, the premier security solutions expert in Asia. You can visit their site at http://manifest-hk.com/.
