HD Stabiliser


Plug in HD Stabiliser to high performance surveillance, security or situational awareness systems to automatically remove unwanted camera shake and picture rotation, dramatically increasing user effectiveness. HD Stabilser bring RFEL's state-of-the-art, high definition, real-time stabilisation algorithm to a convenient, plug-and-play, fully enclosed, small form-factor ideal for in-service upgrades and new installations alike.


  • Removes unwanted camera shake, vibration and roll
  • Stabilises daylight and infrared video
  • Increaseds system effectiveness, at very low latency
  • Instant, hassle free installation
  • HD video standards compatibility
  • Size, weight and power (SWaP) optimised

Easily add competitive advantage to surveillance and situational awareness applications which are subject to small or large movements of the camera or sensor platform. HD Stabiliser is especially effective for powerful zoom systems and/or vision systems with very challenging size and power constraints. Pole-mounted, vehicle mounted, marine and defence users will instantly benefit from improved detection, recognition and identification performance; in addition to reduced viewer fatigue and reduced false positives. Extended variants can support rugged or MIL specification installation.
