Applications
The PTZ Camera is a shock-proof high speed camera
with integrated pan, tilt and 26x optical zoom. The
reinforced metal camera housing is literally bullet proof
and has been constructed to be resistant to flying rocks
and debris. This camera has been designed for mining,
construction, petroleum processing and oil field
applications: It is well suited for hazardous
environments and its functionality makes it ideal for
vehicle and equipment mounting for remote operation,
process monitoring and surveillance.

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY and SAFETY
during REMOTE OPERATIONS
Provix Remote Controlled PTZ Camera System
When Rio Tinto’s Diavik Diamond mine needed a video solution to support remote drilling and bolting
operations, they looked to PROVIX for a solution. PROVIX setup two Pan/Tilt and Zoom cameras on either
side of the bolter, to provide visual reference for both drilling and bolting operations. A smaller fixed
camera was added to provide a constant reference frame for the equipment operator, who is positioned
about 100 feet back from the face. The operator runs both the Tele-Remote controls and the PROVIX
video system from the safety of a seacan, where three monitors provide an up close and personal display
of the back, the booms, the screens and the positioning of the drill. User feedback indicates that drilling is
up to 50% faster than running without cameras. Amazingly, the operator can see the work area better on
the large LCD monitors than if he is actually in the cab of the bolter.
PROVIX Remote Video systems offer visual enhancement to any type of equipment or operation. Each
system is designed based on the operational requirements of the mine. PROVIX video systems entrench
safety during remote operations and allow for increased productivity, while remaining cost effective and
easy to deploy. Contact PROVIX tech reps to discuss any video system requirement.
