Vicon Industries, a designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware and components, announced the availability of its new line of HD analog cameras that deliver 1080p full HD video over conventional coaxial cable. These new cameras are as easy to install as traditional analog security cameras.
HD analog technology is here to bridge the gap and give a high-definition solution to those with an analog system already in place. No new cabling is required to upgrade to the HD analog technology. The cameras, available in dome, bullet and box form factors, are appropriate for a wide range of applications and deliver exceptional clarity in all lighting conditions.
All cameras feature motion detection, privacy masking, true wide-dynamic-range, backlight compensation and automatic white balance. Bullet and dome models include a 2.8-12 mm varifocal lens. On-screen menus make it easy to adjust settings and control all camera features. A range of accessories, sold separately, provide mounting flexibility.
For cost-effective integration with IP video management software, including Vicon's Valerus, these HD analog cameras can be used in conjunction with Vicon's recently introduced 16-channel H.264 ONVIF video encoder. The encoder converts the video output from these cameras into a digital stream for transmission over an IP network.
IP video technology
"Vicon's commitment to delivering end-to-end security solutions means providing a range of camera options that best fit the varied needs and budgets of our customers. For those wishing to make use of an existing coaxial infrastructure, our HD analog cameras can provide a cost-effective approach to accessing IP video technology and its benefits," said Bret McGowan, Vicon's Senior V.P, Sales and Marketing.
