|Grandstream Networks has expanded its video surveillance portfolio with two new HD/low light SIP cameras|
Grandstream Networks, the leading manufacturer of IP voice/video telephony and video surveillance solutions, today announced the release of two new CMOS IP surveillance cameras, the GXV3601_HD (720P high definition) and GXV3601_LL (low light), that add to the rich functionality and versatility of Grandstream's IP video surveillance portfolio by providing exceptional visual clarity with high definition and under low light conditions. Retail stores, airports, school campuses, passport control stations, casinos, streets, highways and banks can benefit from the camera's ability to deliver true colour representation and clear images even if the object is moving quickly.
While analogue closed circuit television (CCTV) system were once the norm, they can be expensive, requiring complicated installation and constant uptake. They also do not allow remote monitoring. Grandstream's IP camera products not only dramatically reduce the cost and time associated with installing surveillance systems, they also offer greater functionality and increased flexibility for remote video monitoring/control and 2-ways audio communication based on industry standard such as VoIP/SIP. The VoIP/SIP capability is unique because it enables seamless convergence between video surveillance and Voice-Video-over-IP communication applications. The use of VoIP/SIP essentially turns these cameras into smart camera phones not just for video monitoring but also 2-way audio intercom/monitoring using the prevailing SIP standard. Live video feeds from Grandstream's surveillance cameras can also be routed through Grandstream's GXE502x IP PBX and streamed onto Grandstream's IP video endpoints like the GXV3140.
The GXV3601_HD delivers high quality video streaming with resolution of 1600 x 900 at 20 frames per second and 1280x720 at 25+ frames per second resulting in razor sharp image clarity critical to real-time surveillance and archived video used for investigative purposes. The GXV3601_LL is designed to capture and stream high quality real time video under low light conditions (as low as 0.05Lux) and at up to 30 frames per second with full D1 (720x480) or VGA (640x480) resolution. Both GXV3601_HD and GXV3601_LL support H.264 (a more efficient advanced compression technology than MPEG4 or Motion JPEG), integrated PoE and microphone, comprehensive peripheral interfaces, embedded video analytics.
"We are very pleased to introduce these two new IP video cameras to our portfolio of surveillance products. The GXV3601_HD and GXV3601_LL offer mission critical high quality video solutions to the surveillance market at very competitive price-performance point. Like other models in our surveillance line, these products also offer bi-directional SIP/VoIP calling capabilities with Grandstream's entire voice-over-IP and video-over-IP line including IP phones, video phones and IPPBX system. We look forward to creating more innovative solutions for the IP Surveillance market in the future." says David Li, CEO of Grandstream.
