Sentry360 Unveils 14-Megapixel Surveillance Camera
Sentry360 recently unveiled the IS-IP14K, the world’s smallest 14 megapixel surveillance camera at the ISC West.
“The IS-IP14K is, without a doubt, the smallest and lowest cost 14 megapixel (4376x3280) camera on the market today,” said Thomas Carnevale, president of Sentry360. “The design idea was to go to market with a simple yet cost effective high-performing camera for mass markets. Several key vertical markets Sentry360 will be focusing on with this new product are Mass Transit, Education, Industrial, Gaming, Retail, Homeland Security and Critical Infrastructure. It’s an exciting time of tremendous growth here at Sentry360.”
While this is Sentry360’s first 14 mega-pixel camera release, the company has already successfully reduced the size (form factor) from the IS-IP10K (10 mega-pixel) InSight camera by nearly 1/2 while improving the processor power on-board. These critical enhancements enable full broadcasting of the 6 frames-per-second the sensor can deliver on H.264 compression.
Most cameras in the market today at or around this resolution are several thousand dollars more expensive and up to 20x the size of the IS-IP14K. Sentry360’s 14 megapixel camera is also ONVIF conformant; making it ready now to use across a wide variety of video management systems. It has the same API of previous models making the IS-IP14K fully integrated into Sentry360 certified technology partners.
The official size of the 14 mega-pixel camera is 35mmx46mmx57mm (H,W,L) with active resolution of 4376x3280, delivering superior image quality combined with a low total cost of ownership. The IS-IP14K has a suggested retail cost of $1,800, making it less expensive than a high-end PTZ camera.
