|Basler to present the entire range of IP cameras with the new true day and night functionality at IFSEC 2009|
Basler will exhibit their IP camera range, including day/night IP cameras, at the upcoming IFSEC
show. IFSEC is scheduled to take place from May 11 to 14, 2009 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK.
Basler's IP cameras made their first appearance at last year's IFSEC show. Visitors to IFSEC 2009 can expect Basler to present the entire range of IP cameras with the new true day and night functionality. Currently, three models from VGA to 1.3 megapixels are equipped with an automatically removable infrared (IR) cut filter. With day/night functionality, Basler is able to provide professional quality imaging for all lighting conditions.
According to Basler, several other camera characteristics and features are differentiators in the IP camera market:
Their scaling and AOI functionalities support customized resolutions and frame rates. To display a maximum of detail with the highest precision, any image format and aspect ratio can be configured. This means that only relevant image data will be transmitted, leading to a significant reduction in the bandwidth required and maximizing storage utilization. And by moving the camera's AOI from frame to frame, customers can set up a function known as e-PTZ.
In addition to the AOI feature, Basler cameras make it possible to set up multiple streams using different compression principles. Customers have the choice of MJPEG, MPEG4, and H.264. By setting up multiple streams, customers can create multiple virtual cameras and can save camera costs while reducing bandwidth and storage requirements. This feature is in high demand, especially in bank and traffic applications.
An ultra-compact, all-metal housing with an 89.8 mm x 29 mm x 44 mm size and a weight of only 230 grams makes these the smallest day/night IP cameras in their class. These characteristics contribute to a flexible, easy installation.
We look forward to seeing you from May 11 through 14 at the IFSEC show in Birmingham in booth F160 - Hall 4.
