The company that pioneered zoom camera technology recently published the Sewer Zoom Camera Buyer’s Guide. This complimentary guide tackles all the major zoom camera performance attributes in a comprehensive, easy-to-understand format. The guide prepares decision-makers to ask the right questions during equipment demonstrations, and ultimately make an informed purchase decision with confidence.

Zoom assessment cameras (also called pole cameras) provide a quick, affordable view into any sewer. They also help inspection crews make better decisions about where to allocate CCTV and cleaning resources, and how to prioritize rehab work. A zoom camera views sewer lines from an adjoining manhole, and can also be used to inspect manholes, catch basins and other assets. The quality of information captured during a zoom assessment has a lot to do with the capabilities of the camera.

“Many features contribute to the overall performance of a zoom assessment camera: resolution, illumination, alignment, stabilization and more,” says Jim Adams, Envirosight’s director of products and services. “We developed this guide to help decision-makers understand the technology behind zoom cameras, and to illustrate how to appropriately compare different zoom camera systems.” Using this guide, you'll be equipped to choose the best technology, and ready to justify the decision with confidence to higher-ups.
