Performance and Value Without Rival

Packed with unique technologies, affordable new Rival™ series digital scouting cameras are Wildgame Innovations’ best-performing cameras ever

Grand Prairie, TX (August 2018) – Most digital scouting cameras utilize mechanical filters that allow them to “see” the infrared illumination produced by their infrared flash systems and record nighttime images of deer and other game. The clever system works, but has its drawbacks. First, the mechanical filter deploys – turning either on or off – anytime when light levels reach a predetermined value. Consequently, images taken

during these “transition periods” can often appear too light or too dark. Secondly, mechanical filters typically make noise when deployed, which can alert or even startle nearby game.

Wildgame Innovations solved this dilemma for hunters and game managers last year, with their release of the revolutionary Silent CRUSH™ 20 – the first scouting camera with Tru-Dual Cam™ technology – featuring innovative dual onboard cameras optimized for daylight and nighttime image capture. The result was the elimination of a mechanical IR filter and the noise it creates, while increasing the quality of images captured during transition periods. Silent CRUSH™ also employed Silent Lens System Technology™ to create an undetectable camera that does its job without making a sound.

Wildgame Innovations makes Tru-Dual Cam™ technology available to even more hunters and game managers with two all-new highly affordable and exciting Rival camera models. These exceptional cameras feature even more technology to improve performance and image quality.

Featuring high-resolution 18-megapixel processors and rapid sub-half-second trigger speeds, both Rival™ Cam 18 and Rival™ Cam 18 Lightsout™ models combine dual onboard day and night optimized cameras with all-new Adaptive Illumination Technology™ to record crystal-clear images and stunning 5-, 15- or 30-second HD 720p video clips. Adaptive Illumination actually detects the distance the moving object is away from the camera and automatically adjusts the image exposure accordingly.

Customizable exposure control settings allow for fine-tuning of image clarity, while an anti-fog coating combats quality-robbing dew and moisture on the Rival’s lenses. A new dot matrix backlit LCD display allows for fast and intuitive programming and control over all camera settings and operations.

Rival™ Cam 18 uses a 42-piece high-intensity LED infrared flash and has a detection and illumination range up to 90 feet. The super stealthy Rival Cam 18 Lightsout™ employs a 42-piece high-intensity invisible Lightsout™ LED flash for detection and illumination out to 85 feet. Best of all, Wildgame Innovations’ Silent Lens System technology means that both Rival Cams capture all the action without making a sound.

Featuring battery life up to one full year on just eight AA batteries and the ability to accept up to 32 GB SDHC cards, these trail cameras don’t require undue levels of babysitting. Set them and forget them; check them only when you want to, not because you need to. Clad in Wildgame Innovations’ TruBark HD™ textured finish, both Rival Cam models defy the eyes of both game and would-be camera thieves.
