Graeme Thursfield, Technical Engineer, PENTAX RICOH IMAGING UK LTD said, “Pentax has been working with Silent Sentinel to integrate the Pair II fully with their Osiris PTZ positioning system and has been very impressed with the results. The performance of the lens needs to be considered as part of the system and with Silent Sentinel’s Osiris there is a perfect harmony that enables the full potential of the lens to be achieved.”

At this year’s Counter Terror Expo in London, PENTAX launched its latest long range zoom lens with PAIR02 technology (Pentax Atmospheric Interference Reduction) plus HD resolution over HD-SDI output.

The Features of the PAIR II include:

  • HD Optics
