Flanders, New Jersey - August 18, 2003 - Everest VIT, the leader in Remote Visual Inspection, introduces Ca-Zoom® PTZ 6.0 Digital Inspection System(TM). The Ca-Zoom PTZ 6.0 system now provides increased zoom capability, the iView(TM) image management platform, and remote control pendant with LCD monitor all configured in a wheeled, portable and durable shipping / carrying case. The capability of the Ca-Zoom PTZ 6.0 system is an industry first. It's at the forefront of the industrial PTZ category with advanced features and technology; with it there no longer is a need to add costly and cumbersome external image, recording, management hardware and software equipment.

"The Ca-Zoom PTZ 6.0 system continues our promise of providing customers the very best in remote visual inspection (RVI) equipment. The system gives customers the ability to visually inspect boiler components, tanks, vessels or other large areas, even in hazardous and hard-to-reach environments," said Bruce A. Pellegrino, Everest VIT President and CEO. "With our iView image management platform, users capture clear, detailed images that can be measured, analyzed and shared literally around the world. No other system offers this level of integration."

The Ca-Zoom PTZ 6.0 system is designed for inspection and surveillance applications for the process, power generation, and safety & security industries. The Ca-Zoom has been used widely for nuclear reactor vessel inspections, reactor fuel bundle inspection and navigation, and serial number verification. With the new design, this industry leading PTZ camera system continues to be an ideal solution to providing higher resolution images in hazardous and non-hazardous environments.

Most significant to the new Ca-Zoom PTZ 6.0 is the addition of Everest-VIT's exclusive iView image management platform. This system brings advanced image management and display allowing users to easily view and organize a variety of views for in-the-field or off-site assessment. The hand-held digital video pendant provides one-touch remote control with a 6.4" VGA resolution LCD screen. Camera set-up and control, positioning, viewing and variable lighting are all features easily accessed from the hand-held video pendant. This device also enables advanced imaging benefits including freeze frame, image save, split screen, image invert, image recall, audio and text annotation, laser measurement, file management and onscreen control of a remote digital video recorder. The iView software is easily upgradeable and the system is compatible with iView Remote, which provides full remote control capability of the Ca-Zoom system from a PC in a remote location.

Beyond image management improvements, the Ca-Zoom system has also enhanced its inspection capabilities with a new powerful 25:1 optical zoom that operates with a 12x digital zoom for total 300:1 zoom capability. The new Ca-Zoom 6.0 system also features high-powered lighting, improved resolution from 460 Horizontal lines to 470 Horizontal lines of video resolution, as well as a high durability cable.
