SIMPLEST OF HANDLING, MOST UP-TO-DATE TECHNOLOGY and FRESH DESIGN at a FAIR PRICE the new ZOOM avalanche transceiver from avalanche experts ORTOVOX brings emotion to theYOUNG MARKET. Designed for free riders and those on tour, the experts from Munich offer a completely NEW CLASS OF DEVICE that did not previously exist.

We have reduced the ZOOM to the MOST ESSENTIAL. Just two buttons make operating errors practically impossible. Once switched on, it is possible to switch between transmission and search mode using the safety switchover button. Subsequent search instructions are given on the large LED display.
An all-round soft rubber ring guarantees GOOD HANDLING and additional PROTECTION. We have secured the ZOOM from being lost with an elastic hand strap and a COMFORTABLE BAG.

The ZOOM focuses the person searching on the LARGE DISPLAY in the middle of the device. LEDS are used to show the distance to the victim, the direction using arrows and if there is more than one victim. Large LEDS are easy to read especially in poor visibility conditions and at night. The VISUAL SEARCH mode is supported by INTUITIVE search acoustics. Higher and fast sounds tell you that you are approaching the avalanche victim.

Even when people are buried under avalanches, the victims benefit from the ZOOM. The integrated SMART ANTENNA TECHNOLOGY analyzes the position of the antennae in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. The result: 43% LONGER RANGE in the worst reception area. The patented Smart Antenna Technology is compatible with all avalanche transceivers, in other words regardless of which device the person searching is using.

The ZOOM is equipped with the LATEST, digital 3-ANTENNA TECHNOLOGY and with a motion sensor. This is required for SWITCHING OVER IN CASE OF A FOLLOW-UP AVALANCHE. If the transmitter registers no movement for more than 120 seconds whilst searching, it automatically switches back to transmission mode. Rescuers are thereby protected from follow-up avalanches at all times.

The ZOOM's complete electronics are checked when it is turned on (SELF TEST) and constantly monitored whilst being used. In case of a burial, once search mode has been activated, rescuers get an initial signal at 40 METERS and are able to make use of a search strip width of the same size.
Without having to compromise on transmission time, the ZOOM SAVES on the ENVIRONMENT and your WALLET! One AA battery is sufficient for 250 hours in transmission mode.

Emergency products form the ROOTS of our business. We stand for SAFETY, CONFIDENCE, RELIABILITY and endless PIONEERING SPIRIT. In 32 years of ORTOVOX we have revolutionized the avalanche transceiver market and enriched it with repeatedly new discoveries: in 1980 we presented the first avalanche transceiver that was able to search and transmit on the two predominating frequencies at the time. In 1989 we introduced the F1 the first device to enable VISUAL SEARCHING. In the following decades, LEDs became the industry standard. Optical searching reached its CLIMAX in 2007 with the S1, with the RELATIVE POSITION of burial victims indicated on a large display. Just three years later we presented the SMART ANTENNA TECHNOLOGY, which for the first time allows transmission on two antennae. All of them innovations that can save lives in an emergency. Innovations that have always come from GERMANY and are completely developed and produced here down to the last part.
