Verint Systems Inc.
Verint’s Nextiva PSIM 6.3 SP1 provides video-centric, real-time situation intelligence and improved response to help users cope with real-world challenges, crime and natural disasters. The open-platform product features video multi-casting so users can view live and recorded security video from multiple PTZ cameras on a computer workstation and “tear off” video into separate windows when needed. Features for the system include an intuitive 3D multi-layer user interface, and the ability to call up camera views to a video wall, receive LPR and face recognition alerts and aggregate multiple alarms.
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.
The new CRN AlarmPath units will feature 4G cellular technology that supports 4G, 3G and 2G communications on the T-Mobile network with roaming capabilities to other carriers. The communicators will feature CRN’s Optimal Connect technology that automatically chooses the highest speed cellular network and transmits alarm signals at the fastest speed possible to the central station. The dealer can install the alarm communicator without concern over network availability or future changes to carrier service. The AlarmPath 4G communicators provide the ideal solution for mission critical residential and business wireless alarm communications.
Axis Communications has entered the physical access control market with the introduction of the company’s first network door controller, the AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller. The product is non-proprietary and features open IP-based access. It also features built-in web-based software and is ideal for small to mid-sized installations that have around 10 doors and basic access control requirements.
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.
The Super Weather Proof (SWP) padlocks can withstand the most severe weather conditions and environmental extremes. The padlocks are available in two styles—mechanical locks and electromechanical locks—that incorporate ASSA ABLOY’s CLIQ programmable electronic locking technologies for added security of electronic access control. They come with and without a weather seal cap and have an IP 68 rating, indicating a hermetic seal.
Sony Electronics Inc.
Sony Electronics announced the SNC-VB635 IP camera, featuring the IPELA ENGINE EX signal processing system. With its extraordinary light sensitivity and full HD resolution, the SNC-VB635 camera is designed for use in highly demanding applications such as transportation, city surveillance and energy. The SNC-VB635 is a fixed camera that features a half-inch Exmo CMOS sensor that generates exceptional picture quality even in very low-light conditions. Other key features include true day/night capabilities and an RS-485 external control.
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.
TRU Vu Monitors Inc
TRU-VU monitors has released the SRM-10.4B-WRL video monitor for use in daylight. The monitor features a screen with 1,000 nits brightness, enabling the operator to see clear video images even in direct sunlight. The system—which features a rugged steel enclosure—is also designed to accept the weaker video signals typically found in wireless video systems. The device also doesn’t go into Sleep Mode, which provides the operator with uninterrupted control.
Designed for the protection of fence lines, open areas, gates, entryways and rooftop applications, the all-weather INTREPID MicroWave 330 offers a 1500 ft. detection range as well as robust programming, intrusion detection and remote management capabilities. Specialized detection algorithms continuously monitor alarm and tamper status, signal strength and detection parameters. Enhanced crawl and vehicle detection optimize probability of detection (pD), while unique Fresnel suppression algorithms successfully discriminate between intrusion attempts and environmental disturbances or other false targets, mitigating risk of site compromise while preventing nuisance alarms. The system’s superior K-band performance identifies slow-moving intruders and prevents interference from external radar or other microwave systems.
