With the introduction of the VIDEOJET decoder 3000 and VIDEOJET decoder 7000, Bosch is extending its decoder family with two new solutions for streaming video from IP cameras in high quality HD onto large flat-screen monitors or monitor walls. While providing various display options, both decoders are designed for operation without the need for an additional PC or software to decode the video signals. They support an economical update of video surveillance systems during the transition to IP technology.
March Networks introduces the four-channel 8704 S Hybrid Network Video Recorder (NVR). The 8704 S delivers the same exceptional reliability, centralized management and crystal-clear image quality available with the company’s eight, 16 and 32-channel 8000 Series recorders. Measuring just 3.2 x 8.3 x 5.0 in (8.1 x 21.2 x 12.6 cm) and able to record at 30 frames per second on all four channels, the compact NVR is ideal for installation in standalone ATMs and smaller banking branches seeking real-time video recording for enhanced security and fraud detection.
Panasonic System Networks Co.
The ClearSight rain-resistant dome coating from Panasonic increases the operational utility of outdoor cameras in wet weather. The hydrophilic coating allows rain drops to flatten onto the surface of the camera dome, significantly reducing optical distortion and providing better visibility in rainy conditions. The coated surface also resists the development of water stains and dust accumulation, which reduces dome maintenance.
Panasonic Security Systems
The 6 Series i-PRO camera line based on its next generation UniPHier LSI processors includes cameras that feature 60 frames per second performance on both 720p and 1080p models, as well as improved compression efficiency. The new platform also features Enhanced Super Dynamic technology enabling 130db video dynamic range, which can deliver performance in any lighting condition. The cameras can also encode up to four H.264 streams simultaneously and feature high sensitivity in low light conditions generating usable color video at less than 0.11x illumination.
Axis Communications, Inc.
Axis Communications introduces two cost-effective video encoders that can serve small to medium-sized surveillance installations. The AXIS M7016 Video Encoder provides full frame rate video, is attractive, cost effective and features easy entry to network video. The AXIS P7216 Video Encoder features full frame rate video, adds audio and I/O ports and is equipped with a small form-factor pluggable (SFP) slot for use with fiber optics. Each uses one single network port, which drives down cost and port density of the surveillance system infrastructure.
Now available is the Schneider Electric Pelco High-Resolution Sarix TI Series Thermal Imaging (TI) IP cameras. Adding to its popular line of existing thermal imaging surveillance technologies known for creating high-quality and affordable thermal imaging with infrared detection, the cameras were built on the Sarix technology platform, and provide a digital end-to-end IP solution that allows for easy integration into a wide variety of third-party systems. The camera has longer detection, recognition and identification ranges that are up to twice as long as the mid-range model, making it ideal for the most demanding and critical security application.
The residential and commercial access control company introduces new two, three and five-megapixel cameras in dome, mini-dome, box and bullet (pictured) styles. The new cameras have features such as multiple video streams, H.264 video compression, vandal resistant housings, IP66 weatherization rating, WDR, auto iris control, two-way audio and PoE power. All of the cameras are ONVIF 2.2 profile S compliant and integrate to popular VMS systems.
OnSSI’s Ocularis LS features comprehensive VMS and PSIM functionality for streaming, recording and managing an unlimited number of cameras. Designed for mobility without compromise, the Ocularis LS incorporates edge recording support for local recording on the camera in the absence of network connectivity, and automatic and seamless download of the recorded video when in range of the network. Ocularis LS provides comprehensive management and control of all video devices and recording servers from a centralized location with unlimited scalability. Its 64-bit architecture accommodates edge recording capability with automatic or flexible retrieval, configuration reports for document configuration settings and a system status monitor.
The IP 5000 HD and MP camera family from Bosch features resolutions as high as five megapixels and can cater to a wide range of surveillance needs. The series consists of 13 cameras in four different designs: microdome, bullet, indoor and outdoor domes. Outdoor cameras include features such as vandal resistant, water and dust-proof enclosures, IR LEDs for night-time monitoring and varifocal lenses to simplify adjusting field of view. The new cameras also incorporate iDNR, which helps with noise and bandwidth reduction.
The SyncroIP NVR series has been expanded by FLIR Systems to introduce the DNR300 Series, which offers advanced functionality for more demanding applications while maintaining the original models’ same characteristics. The NVRs feature 8 integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports, greater bandwidth for turbo processing speed, a more sophisticated CMS application and are available in 8 and 16 channel configurations. The devices also feature a recording bit rate of 80 Mbps and support real-time recording (30 fps per channel) at full HD 1080 resolution in 8 channel mode.
