Vicon Industries, designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware and components, announced that its new 2MP and 4MP turret cameras, ideal for retail and hospitality applications, are now shipping. The V930D and V9500D Series are turret, or “eyeball,” cameras featuring H.264/H.265 compression, wide-dynamic-range, IR LEDs and low-light capabilities. They can be surface, wall or ceiling mounted, is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and offer extreme ease-of-installation and adjustment due to their innovative form factor.
Turret cameras offer the compact size, mounting flexibility and 360 degree range of camera domes, but with the ease-of-positioning and extended IR range of a bullet design. In addition, the lack of a clear dome housing improves image quality by eliminating the reflection of IR LEDs that can ‘bounce’ off the inside of the dome and condensation that can form on the exterior.

For retail and hospitality applications, where cameras are often ceiling or in-ceiling mounted, turrets offer aesthetics similar to dome models but easier access for positioning and maintenance. They are also affordable for installations that require large quantities for use throughout an entire facility.
“With the introduction of an entire new line of H.265 cameras, we are pleased to include these turret models, which offer customers a unique set of benefits related to performance and usability, and do so at a very cost-effective price point,” said Bret McGowan, Senior V.P., Sales and Marketing.
