Honeywell Introduces Entry-level IP Video System

Honeywell has released a complete high-definition video surveillance system designed for small business owners who need sharper image quality typically associated with larger, more expensive security systems. The entry-level system combines Honeywell's new MAXPRO NVR XE with the latest additions to its line of low-cost Performance Series IP cameras, and further eases the transition from analog to digital video for smaller companies such as retail and convenience stores, healthcare centers and professional office buildings.

"Many organizations think switching from analog to IP video is cost-prohibitive, especially for small-to-mid-size businesses, but the MAXPRO NVR XE family aims to dispel that myth by providing high image quality alongside truly affordable technology," said Brandon Reich, marketing director, Honeywell Systems. "This system was designed to capture sharp pictures, be affordable for smaller businesses, and be as easy as a DVR for a dealer to set up and operate, even with limited IT knowledge."

Honeywell's MAXPRO NVR XE system currently supports PSIA video standards and will be expanded to support ONVIF video standards in Q3 2011. It includes four recommended entry-level, indoor and outdoor IP cameras recently added to the company's Performance Series line. The resulting image quality can assist investigations by helping companies more accurately identify objects, people and activities captured on video.

Additionally, the system helps operators quickly assess alarm event information by simultaneously displaying alarm, pre-alarm, post-alarm and live video. It also allows operators to view live video while performing searches, and includes Honeywell's patent-pending Video Surround feature that helps security personnel more efficiently track suspects as they move between areas.

The MAXPRO NVR XE offers 16 channels, a local monitoring display and supports the HD format. To simplify installation, the system comes with pre-installed software and camera licenses for quick setup and system scalability.

    A8V MIND

    Hexagon’s Geosystems presents a portable version of its Accur8vision detection system. A rugged all-in-one solution, the A8V MIND (Mobile Intrusion Detection) is designed to provide flexible protection of critical outdoor infrastructure and objects. Hexagon’s Accur8vision is a volumetric detection system that employs LiDAR technology to safeguard entire areas. Whenever it detects movement in a specified zone, it automatically differentiates a threat from a nonthreat, and immediately notifies security staff if necessary. Person detection is carried out within a radius of 80 meters from this device. Connected remotely via a portable computer device, it enables remote surveillance and does not depend on security staff patrolling the area. 3
