Below are pictures and descriptions of some of the equipment PRONE uses during investigations. We do not bring every piece of equipment to every investigation. We will determine what will be necessary depending on the specific location.
PRONE uses various digital cameras to capture still photos. While we have standard ones that many people are familiar with, we also use a full spectrum camera that takes photos within multiple light spectrums that are not visible to the human eye. The camcorders used to capture video are capable of shooting in infrared; which allows them to see in complete darkness. We have been making our own infrared lights that help enhance the distance and clarity of the camcorders' night vision capabilities.
The infrared monocular is used on investigations where an extreme amount of night vision is needed. It has a viewing distance of several hundred feet. With a special bracket, we can attach any camera or camcorder up to the monocular to capture still photos or video. The monocular works great in large buildings.
An original invention from PRONE, the Yes/No Boxes work off of an infrared motion sensor. The idea behind the boxes is that they can be used for simple "yes" or "no" real time answers with spirits. To read more about the machines, click HERE for an article written by PRONE Tech manager Rob.
In many cases, PRONE will set up our DVR system. Up to 4 infrared cameras can be set up and monitored in real time. The cameras can run continuously throughout the night to cover hot spots during the entire investigation whether an investigator is around or not.
