Rugged, outdoor design

The VOLANT has a durable, die-cast aluminium body for rugged, outdoor operation. The camera is offset to allow viewing vertically downwards when mounted on a pole or column and allows highly flexible, continuous rotation in both its pan and tilt axis.

Like Redvision’s highly successful X-SERIES™ cameras, the VOLANT has a flat, optically-correct, toughened glass camera window. The toughened glass protects the camera from wet conditions and provides a flat surface for a silicon wiper to remove dirt and water. Optically-correct glass means the VOLANT has minimal distortion and the best possible low light performance. 

The VOLANT is IP68 weather-proof rated; IK10 shock and vandal resistance rated; and passes IEC vibration and salt spray compliance requirements. The VOLANT also surpasses Redvision’s own in-house shock and impact testing criteria, designed to replicate conditions in the most demanding, rugged, surveillance applications.

Infinity™ motors for both fast AND slow movement

The VOLANT uses Infinity direct drive, brushless DC motors for fast, accurate and silent operation. 

The Infinity motors produce immense torque. This enables the VOLANT to pan and tilt at great speed (up to 360°/second to a pre-set) yet hold its position at rest with immense strength. The VOLANT can also move extremely slowly, enabling an operator to track a target or person at a great distance. The VOLANT can zoom in on plates and faces at 300m away, allowing the operator to follow them with ease.


The VOLANT has an aluminium body designed for the toughest environments. Its Infinity motors are cool running, so can be sealed against dirt, moisture and dust ingress, for minimal wear and tear. This ensures the VOLANT gives many years of maintenance-free operation and low cost of ownership.

Accuracy and stability

The Infinity motors used in the VOLANT are direct drive, so do not rely on belts or mechanisms for their movement. They deliver minimal latency and military-level, preset position absolute repeatability within 0.01°. The Infinity motors also have positional intelligence. If the VOLANT is knocked or moved out of position, it will recover to its correct position immediately.

VOLANT - Fast, Accurate, Silent

Dual-Adaptive™ LED illumination

The VOLANT includes integrated, Dual-Adaptive IR and white light illumination. A ring of IR and white-light, ultra-efficient LEDs, surround the camera. They adjust to provide optimal lighting for any field of view. Unlike the more commonly available Smart IR functionality, the VOLANT adjusts lighting intensity and spread for optimal scene illumination, according to relative zoom position. 

Dual-Adaptive IR and white light illumination is effective at up to 150m in complete darkness.

Silent and secure

The VOLANT is almost silent when it moves, due to its Infinity motors. Not only does this make the VOLANT unobtrusive when moving, it also ensures no vibration noise passes through its fixings into buildings.

The Infinity DC motors produce almost no sparks in comparison with the more commonly used AC motors. This makes the VOLANT naturally suited to hazardous or potentially explosive environments. 


The VOLANT IP series cameras provide seamless, network integration. They are ONVIF S compliant and have SDK integration protocols developed for most leading manufacturers’ control equipment or video management software (VMS) systems.
