GOST™ (Global Ocean Security Technologies – formerly Paradox Marine) has introduced several new models of its GOST Mini Ball Camera. The camera is now available in PAL, reverse image (NTSC and PAL) and also in wide angle with a 2.8 mm lens for enhanced security and surveillance on board.

Measuring only 2.4 inches (61mm) in diameter, this rugged, marine grade, water – resistant and tamper proof analogue camera – just slightly larger then a golf ball – can be mounted discreetly inside or out – and it won’t detract from a boat or yacht’s decor or ambience. The GOST Mini Ball is now the company's primary camera and will be included in all GOST Watch HD & GOST Insight HD packages.

"This has allowed us to reduce the cost of our cameras while expanding the line and pass significant savings along to our customers," said GOST President and CEO Jay Keenan. The standard model features a 3.6 mm fixed lens for outstanding picture quality and all versions incorporate 540 TV lines in colour for high resolution. A Day/Night function automatically senses light changes and switches the camera mode from colour in bright light to monochrome at night or in low light conditions, using state-of-the-art LED technology.

You can even mount a couple of these in your engine room to monitor that while underway!
