Vicon introduces Surveyor HD PTZ Dome at ASIS International Exhibition
Vicon's Surveyor HD PTZ Dome, a day/night 1.3 megapixel camera
Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of integrated IP video surveillance and access control systems, announced at the ASIS International Exhibition in Dallas, Texas, the expansion of its line of high-performance PTZ camera domes to include the Surveyor HD, a 1.3 megapixel model. The new Surveyor HD combines a powerful day/night megapixel camera, equipped with 18x optical zoom, in Vicon's proven Surveyor dome system.

Available in indoor, outdoor, pressurised and maximum-security models, the camera offers 4x the resolution of standard definition cameras with the benefits of 360° continuous rotation, a wide range of programmable features, including privacy masking, and exceptional zoom, focus, pan and tilt speeds, and preset accuracy. The camera's ONVIF open architecture allows for integration with a wide range of video management solutions.

The Surveyor HD provides a choice H.264, MPEG-4 and M-JPEG encoding options to maximise both recording quality and storage efficiency. Its 4.7-84.6 mm varifocal lens provides superb sharpness and excellent sensitivity. The camera's digital noise reduction minimises video interference and triggering of false alarms while Wide Dynamic Range provides excellent contrast in difficult light conditions.

According to the Company: "An increasing number of security system designers are recognising the need to pan and zoom within live HD video, and Vicon is uniquely positioned to deliver a camera with this ability. Our highly-successful Surveyor line has been proven effective and reliable in even the most challenging environments and we are pleased to add HD video to the benefits these cameras provide."

The HD Surveyor PTZ Dome will begin shipping in Q1, 2011.
