Honeywell adds six new H.264 IP cameras to its EQUIP series

Product Profile

Honeywell has announced the addition of six IP cameras to its existing equIP IP product series. The new true day/night cameras are split into two ranges - 1080p and 720p wide dynamic – with each range incorporating three different models; an indoor only mini dome, a vandal resistant mini dome and a box camera.

A core benefit of the new IP cameras is progressive scan video which enables improved detail on moving objects such as faces and car number plates. Furthermore, dual streaming allows each video stream to be configured with an individual resolution whilst Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) results in significant storage savings without sacrificing image quality in low light. The cameras can also be fully integrated with Honeywell’s MAXPRO NVR SE and XE 2.0 ranges to offer an efficient all Honeywell IP system.

The high resolution of the 1080p cameras allows operators to digitally zoom for superior detail and to cover nearly three times the horizontal area compared with standard fixed analogue cameras, potentially reducing the number of cameras required to monitor a fixed space and lowering costs. The 1080p cameras’ superior image detail and ability to highlight small details, such as facial features, means they are suitable for installations that require enhanced detail when zooming in, and the highest possible resolution.

The 720p cameras use wide dynamic technology to improve image visibility even in high contrast environments where objects are hard to identify due to severe backlight or shadows. This allows security personnel to identify subjects in challenging environments such as areas with strong back lighting or abrupt changes in illumination, or when looking from a well lit area into a darker one. The technology delivers video with near-perfect exposure in the harshest of lighting conditions enabling the operator to see recorded events more clearly for use as evidence or to inform decisions.

“Successfully using IP technology to improve the quality, detail and resolution of video recording, particularly in challenging environments, is a constant focus for security manufacturers,” comments Mark Openshaw, Product Manager for Honeywell Security Group EMEA. “Helping installers and end users monitor wider areas and use video footage more effectively is driving the evolution of, and demand for IP solutions.”
