Surveillance manufacturer IDIS has unveiled its Covert Modular Cameras (DC-V3213XJ) at this year’s Intersec, at the Dubai World Trade Center.

Available in options featuring a 4.3mm or 2.5mm fixed lens, the new covert cameras offer easy installation with new and existing DirectIP® network video recorders (NVRs) so that customers can simply add the cameras to their current systems, effectively protecting their existing investment.

Adaptability in new features

The new covert cameras also feature full-HD resolution, two-way audio, alarm in and out, PoE, a day and night infrared cut filter (ICR), true-wide dynamic range as well as supporting ONVIF. Customers have the option of using micro SD/SDHC/SDXC cards to benefit from IDIS Smart Failover, so that in the event of a lost connection between the camera and NVR, the camera’s card beings to temporarily recording, and once the connection is restored the card automatically transfers the data back to the NVR.

Speaking at the show, Peter Kim, IDIS Senior Director, Global Technology Center, commented: “The new convert cameras really bolster our product and technology line-up, especially for the retail and banking sectors where we are seeing the most demand.

Protection against failure

“The new covert cameras are perfectly sized for ATMs, particularly when paired with the compact sized IDIS NVR (DR-1204P) that benefits from the protection IDIS Smart Failover. All sectors can also benefit from IDIS Critical Failover, which includes more than just Smart Failover. If any part of the surveillance infrastructure fails, the IDIS system recognises the failure and then switches to a redundant system, which is critical especially for banking and financial organisations.

"Previously, this process has taken precious time and resources when done manually; plus, redundant equipment can be expensive. With IDIS Critical Failover we can offer multi-layered protection, with all the benefits of a redundant standby system, but at a significantly lower cost.

These cameras also make for a powerful IDIS retail solution that also includes a smart and cost-effective video analytics solution, VA in the Box; the company’s DD-1216 decoder (which enables 16ch real-time display), and the HE-1101 HDMI encoder, which allows for comprehensive PoS monitoring.”
