Grundig 3 MP IP cameras

Advanced sensor technology ensures Grundig’s 3MP IP cameras deliver exceptional low light sensitivity, IR illumination and WDR.

Grundig Security’s new 3MP, IP bullet, vandal, dome and box cameras deliver exceptional low light performance and striking image quality, even in adverse lighting conditions.

Sony’s Exmor™ CMOS sensor with Ambarella S DSP is core to the new ranges’ performance producing real-time, Full HD, quad video streams. The CMOS sensor offers 50% increased sensitivity in the 850nm IR cameras, with improved colour rendition and colour balance in the visible light spectrum. In conjunction with six, built-in, super-efficient IR LEDs, the effective illumination range of the cameras now exceeds 40m.

The bullet and dome cameras use Tamron, high-quality, 3x optical, 3.0 to 9.0mm, glass, auto-focus zoom (AFZ) lenses (F=1.3 ~ 360) with 10x digital zoom. These coated lenses achieve sharp focus in both low light and bright, day-light conditions. With P-Iris (‘precise iris’) as standard in the lens models, image contrast, clarity, resolution and depth of field are all increased.

A ‘Dual Shutter WDR’ feature allows the exposure and gain, in consecutive frames to be individually adjusted and merged. This produces optimal image quality in almost any, high-contrast, lighting conditions.

Ease of installation is ensured with a purpose-designed junction box fitting to the bullet camera’s body and ample space in the dome camera housing for installation cables. The AFZ lens enables remote set up and focus and camera configuration is by an intuitive web browser interface.

The bullet and vandal dome are both IP66 protection-rated and IK10 vandal-rated. They also include an impressive -40°C to 55°C operating temperature range.

Analytics features include face detection, intelligent motion detection and tamper detection. Further features of the range include ONVIF S protocol, bi-directional audio, SD / SDHC / SDXC memory card compatibility, 5 privacy zones and 12Vdc, 24Vac and PoE power supply options.

Redvision at Intersec Dubai 2016 b

Redvision appoints further international resellers following a successful Intersec 2016.

Redvision followed a successful Intersec Dubai exhibition with the appointment of a number of new, international distributors and value-added resellers (VARs).

Intersec is the leading exhibition for the Security & Safety industry in the MENA region. The January 2016 exhibition featured 1,280 exhibitors and more than 31,100 visitors from 127 countries.

Before attending Intersec, Redvision, the UK manufacturer of the X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ dome cameras and Redcop™ rapid deployment systems, used extensive independent testing to verify that its X-SERIES™ cameras would tolerate the regions’ hotter climates, without compromising product functionality, longevity or warranty. The X-SERIES™ passed tests convincingly, confirming the cameras high-quality construction and efficient power management. It also reflected Redvision’s thorough approach to entering a new market, befitting of its market-leading position CCTV manufacturer status.

“Intersec enabled Redvision to showcase the X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ dome cameras to prospective customers from African, Middle Eastern and Southern European regions, as well as wider international markets,” explained Paul Hucker, MD of Redvision. “We saw increased awareness of our cameras across all regions. Many visitors were the budget holders and decision makers within their respective businesses and had the power to make immediate purchasing decisions. We anticipate the appointment of many new, international distributors and value-added resellers as a direct result of the exhibition.

“Our X-SERIES™ cameras are also the preferred video hardware platform of other Intersec exhibitors and technology partners; Ogier Electronics radar systems; UDP video analytics; and Eyelynx video management software. We created additional interest and awareness of our cameras as part of integrated radar, analytics and VMS technology solutions. We shared leads and information during the exhibition, including on live projects, and addressed real site needs using complementary, intelligent solutions. Due to the resounding success of Intersec, Redvision are planning many more international exhibitions.”

PNR 5332

eneo’s new 32 channel NVR delivers 960, FPS and 16 hybrid channels.

eneo is launching its new 32 channel, standalone network video recorder, the PNR-5332.

The NVR provides simultaneous live viewing and recording of up to 32 Full HD (2.0MP) video channels in real-time, 25FPS (30FPS in NTSC), with a combined maximum data throughput of 230 Mbps. It includes hybrid functionality, recording up to 16 IP and 16 analogue cameras all together, with a maximum recording resolution of 5.0 MP (2592x1944p pixels) per channel.

“The Linux-based NVR is supplied with 3TB of internal storage and has slots available for up to six internal HDD drives,” explained Martin Morris, eneo Business Development Manager UK & Ireland. “It also has support for two further external eSATA drives. Video output options include HDMI at 1920x1080p (Full HD) and VGA. The PNR-5332 design includes a front keyboard, with jog-shuttle, mouse and IR remote control and allows for 19” rack mounting.

“iRAS video management software is included for remote client access and control. The RAS mobile app enables Android and iOS smartphone and tablet viewing with touch-screen functionality. Set up is via a user-friendly web browser and all ONVIF-compatible, system cameras are automatically detected by the NVR and configured for optimal performance.”

The NVR operates with eneo’s NPCII universal protocol converter, enabling integration with leading point-of-sale (POS) cash till, access control, LPR (license plate recognition) and ATM systems.

Sixteen alarm inputs with four relay outputs and sixteen audio inputs with one output are also included. Pre-alarm recording can extend up to 30 minutes, with email, buzzer, software and alarm output notifications. Alarm triggers include disc error, system error, video loss, motion, text-in, physical contacts and POS.

Thermal camera hotspot and zones

Security Buying Group uses ‘hot-spot’ detection and temperature deviation to help prevent fires.

The Security Buying Group’s new range of thermal cameras uses ‘hot-spot’ detection and ‘scene temperature deviation’ to trigger alarms within its Digifort VMS platform.

The system is already actively used in fire prevention, early fire detection and life safety applications and has many other uses.

“The ‘hot-spot’ alert detects any point, in up to five zones in the camera’s field of view, that exceeds a defined temperature,” explained Paul Scott, technical director of the Security Buying Group. “The hottest point in each zone is marked with a cross, which allows users to see the exact reason for an alarm or alert condition. The temperature reading at each cross, and its deviation from the ambient temperature level of each zone, is displayed in the video image. The hottest of the ‘hot-spots’ in the camera’s view is highlighted with a larger ‘crosshair’ and tracked in close to real time.

“The ‘Scene temperature deviation’ feature allows users to set a safe working temperature range in each zone or for the entire scene. An alert will be triggered if a zone becomes too hot or cold. For example, if the temperature threshold of a zone is programmed at 50°C, any part of that zone exceeding 50°C will trigger an alert or raise an alarm.”

All communications between the camera and VMS are via Ethernet, with alarm actions configured within the VMS. No external interfaces or video analytics licenses are required for its operation, making it a cost-effective solution.

The SBG thermal cameras’ resolution is 420x315 pixels and they are available with 8, 15, 25, 35 and 50mm lens options.
