|The company will showcase 360 x 360 degree virtual PTZ cameras and NVRs at the event
IC Realtime, a global innovator of advanced video surveillance technology, will be demonstrating a comprehensive lineup of 4K video surveillance products at the ISC West 2015 show April 15 – 17 (booth #23005). The series includes a 360-degree x 360-degree Virtual PTZ camera, several 360-degree cameras (ranging from dome to wide-angle lens designs), and NVRs.
Defined and approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an Ultra HD 4K display has 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution with an expanded colour space, in a 16:9 format, and uses progressive scanning at 25/30 Hz. This equates to four times the resolution of 1080p HDTV. All IC Realtime 4K products comply with the UHD standard.
IC720 4K 360-degree x 360-degree camera
IC Realtime’s dual-sensor 24-megapixel Virtual PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) camera together with the company’s proprietary IC720 software App, gives the user the ability to pan from floor-to-ceiling and completely around the camera -- including zoom and freeze options – in a smooth fashion, free of blind spots or distortion. This yields fields-of-view that until now required several cameras to achieve. Navigation is achieved by simply pointing the display device in the desired directions, or via finger touch of the display screen. The App (available as a free download at iTunes.com) is presently compatible with iPad. Versions for iPhone, Android and a variety of mobile devices, tablets and laptops, are in development. MSRP is set at $3,000.
4K 360-degree dome and wide-angle lens surveillance cameras
IC Realtime is now offering 4K in a 360-degree dome as well as several standard wide-angle lens varieties. Each boasts 4,000 x 3,000 resolution, 4K @15FPS recording and is powered by the IC720 software platform which works with a smart device’s built-in sensors and gyros to permit users to review events from inside of the action. Additional capabilities of the cameras include infrared night vision and audio. The 360-degree 4K dome camera (model # ICIP-360L12) has an MSRP of $1,598. The wide-angle versions are expected to range from $900 to $1,400 MSRP and will be available in bullet, dome and box styles.
4K network video recorder
IC Realtime’s 4K NVR is the next step in the evolution of high-performance 4K resolution network video recorders. This ONVIF-compatible unit boasts an Intel i7 quad-core processor, can store up to 96TB internally and is capable of outputting 4K from 4-channels to 128. MSRP for the NVR (model # NVR-8256DR) starts at $13,998.
“While 4K is becoming more common in the consumer electronics marketplace relative to TVs and home theater film screens, there is very little video content to speak of,” says IC Realtime CEO, Matt Sailor. “IC Realtime is amongst the first to offer a comprehensive line that captures video in 4K, taking surveillance to an entirely new level.”
