Recognizing such trends in the market, Tamron vigorously continues working on development of new products that efficiently serve such diversifying customer needs.</p> <p>It is evident that the main stream of the camera market today is skewed to mini-domes and/or housing-integrated forms, migrating from the conventional box-type. While Tamron is actively exploiting opportunities in that vein, solid and steady demand for the box-type cameras should not be underestimated because of availability of advanced features and...MOBOTIX introduces thermal sensor modules for S15D with dual flexmount video cable technologyhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1164-ga-npr.14686.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1164-ga-npr.14686.htmlNew Product ReleasesThu, 31 Jul 2014 08:00:00 GMT<p>MOBOTIX recently introduced the new thermal sensor modules for the S15D, being the first thermal devices to use MOBOTIX&rsquo; revolutionary dual flexmount video cable technology. This is available with all S15D upgraded to software version MX-V4.2.1.43.</p> <p>The flexible video cabling, weatherproof design and tiny footprint allows the two S15D thermal sensor modules to be installed into any location up to two meters away from a single S15D core unit. The advantage of using thermal sensor modules is that they can visualise heat radiating from vehicles and persons, for the purpose of accurate movement detection up to 400 meters away from the camera, even under the most challenging lighting and environmental conditions.</p> <p>Another world first innovation, available in the MOBOTIX M15D and S15D, is the ability to combine both thermal and optical sensor modules in the one camera. While the thermal sensor provides movement detection, the optical sensor provides crisp clear...Videotec moves French branch of business to outskirts of Parishttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1770-ga.14663.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1770-ga.14663.htmlCorporate NewsFri, 25 Jul 2014 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 1px; height: 281px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smalltxt" valign="top" align="center"><strong>The new Videotec headquarters will have a large showroom available for demonstrations and training sessions <br /></strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>With a view to providing an improved service to its loyal customers, the French branch of the Italian CCTV equipment manufacturer, <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/videotec.html" class="blue_bold">Videotec</a>, is moving address.</p> <p>Based, since 1992, close to Rouen in northern France, the branch is now moving to the outskirts of Paris, to the "Parc d'Activit&eacute; de...SightLogix announces Frank De Fina as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketinghttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1508-ga-co-3478-ga.14627.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1508-ga-co-3478-ga.14627.htmlCorporate NewsTue, 22 Jul 2014 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 171px; height: 268px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smalltxt" valign="top" align="center"><strong>Frank De Fina has over 30 years of leadership experience in the security industry</strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/sightlogix.html" class="blue_bold">SightLogix</a> announced recently that Frank De Fina, a security industry veteran with over 30 years of leadership experience, has joined the company as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.</p> <p>Frank-De-Fina <em>&ldquo;We are thrilled to welcome Frank De Fina to SightLogix,&rdquo;</em> said John Romanowich, SightLogix...Dahua HDCVI Academy announces Smartwares Security as distribution partnerhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-4261-ga-co-10145-ga.14621.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-4261-ga-co-10145-ga.14621.htmlCorporate NewsTue, 22 Jul 2014 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 1px; height: 267px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smalltxt" valign="top" align="center"><strong>Smartwares Security will add Dahua HDCVI products to its portfolio</strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/micro-site/dahua-technology-ltd.html" class="blue_bold">Dahua</a> HDCVI Academy officially has <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/smartwares-security.html" class="blue_bold">Smartwares Security</a> as its distribution partner.</p> <p>As HDCVI reveals a new chapter, offering the industry with a new HD solution, and in a heritage way, HDCVI...British Security Industry Association (BSIA) presents award to a cash-in-transit courier guard for braveryhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-306-ga.14593.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-306-ga.14593.htmlCorporate NewsThu, 17 Jul 2014 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 1px; height: 268px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smalltxt" valign="top" align="center"> <p><strong>Nick was presented with a Special Award for Outstanding Service during BSIA&rsquo;s Annual Luncheon</strong></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>A security guard has been presented with a prestigious award from the <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/enhanced-company-listing/british-security-industry-association-bsia.html" class="blue_bold">British Security Industry Association (BSIA)</a> for his immense bravery following an incident where he was attacked on shift while on duty as a cash-in-transit courier.</p> <p>Nick Lyons has been working as part of a...Whole lot of shaking – But it doesn’t degrade the videohttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-227-ga-co-5188-ga-sb.14550.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-227-ga-co-5188-ga-sb.14550.htmlSecurity BeatThu, 17 Jul 2014 08:00:00 GMT<p>A video demonstration from <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/axis-communications.html" class="blue_bold">Axis </a>highlights the image stabilisation capabilities of their latest <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/products-search-results/ip-cameras.html" class="orangebold">network cameras</a>.
