With just ten versatile models, the new range of high-performance IP CCTV cameras from Security Products from Siemens comprehensively covers all standard requirements. Security system designers and installers can, therefore, easily select the best and most cost effective camera for every application without having to choose between dozens of models from several different ranges.
Maintenance and servicing are also simplified, as only a small number of spare cameras are needed to deal with all eventualities. In addition, when cameras from this new and innovative range are used, system designers, installers and end users alike enjoy the full benefits of Security Products from Siemens renowned support and after-sales service.
The new Siemens IP camera range includes box, fixed dome, high-speed dome and vandal-resistant models, with the box and fixed dome range being available in VGA, 1.3 MP and 2.0 MP (full HD) versions.
The vandal-resistant model is a full HD camera with an IP66 protection rating, ensuring that it is capable of withstanding the toughest conditions, indoors or out. This model also includes integrated IR illuminators that allow it to continue producing clear pictures even in total darkness.
The cameras in the range feature day/night operation, generating high quality colour pictures in bright conditions, and clear monochrome images at low light levels. The 1.3MP box and 1.3MP fixed dome models feature wide dynamic range operation, allowing them to produce excellent images even in difficult high-contrast lighting conditions.
All cameras offer integrated motion detection, and all incorporate triple encoding functionality as standard, which allows them to generate H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG video streams simultaneously. They can, therefore, be used with any modern CCTV system and, thanks to their support for H.264 encoding, they offer a high degree of future proofing. The new cameras also support the increasingly popular ONVIF network protocol, making them easy to integrate with third-party equipment in IP installations.
Box cameras in the range feature a standard C/CS lens mount, allowing users to select the most appropriate lens for their application, while the fixed dome and vandal-resistant cameras are supplied with integrated varifocal lenses. The high-speed dome camera, which has a maximum pan speed of 400º/s, is available with a choice of 18x, 28x and 36x zoom lenses.
To complement its new cameras, Security Products from Siemens provides a wide choice of mounting accessories that make installation fast, straightforward and secure in any application.
