Following its recent £6,000 donation to the Help for Heroes charity, UK CCTV manufacturer, 360 Vision Technology has provided the charity with an Invictus TX HD PTZ camera, to allow veterans to monitor the progress of a project to build a Viking longboat.
Over 70 wounded, injured and sick veterans from all over the North and Scotland signed up to participate in the woodworking project at the Help for Heroes Phoenix House Recovery Centre, Catterick, North Yorkshire.
Adrian Kirk, Strategic Account Director at 360 Vision explained: “360 Vision is very proud to support Help for Heroes and the amazing work they do for our great veterans and their families.
“When we heard about the exciting Viking boat project, we offered to donate and install a wireless ruggedised Invictus PTZ camera from our new TX range, to remotely monitor the progress. As well as financial support, we wanted to provide practical support using our UK designed and manufactured wireless camera surveillance technology, which allows remote viewing from mobile devices.”
360 Vision’s Invictus TX HD PTZ camera will enable visual access to the project, even when veterans have handed over to others, allowing them to stay engaged with the project through to completion. The Invictus camera video footage will also be used to produce a start-to-finish time-lapse video at the end of the project, to share with all involved.
“We can’t thank 360 Vision Technology enough for helping to support this great project with their Invictus TX HD PTZ camera,” says Trevor Fudger, Help for Heroes’ Area Fundraising Manager for the North West. “The ability to provide remote visual access to this project will be of great benefit to our veterans. The project is set to run through 2020, one of the highlights of which will be it featuring in York’s Viking Festival, during February half term.”
Concluding, Adrian Kirk said: “This project has allowed us to engage with the veterans at Phoenix House and see how our donations are making a real difference to the lives of personnel who have Service-attributable injuries and illnesses. I urge more UK security manufacturers to get behind this great charity if they can.”
