An Infallible Eye: Introducing the Siqura® HD2x High-Speed PTZ IP dome cameras

Product Profile

Rain or shine, the Siqura® (brand of Optelecom-NKF) HD2x camera series provides a suitable solution for any application. With both indoor and outdoor models, these cameras ensure excellent quality images from wherever they're located, be it for 24/7 surveillance from inside a shopping mall or year-round coverage of a tunnel entrance on a critical thoroughfare.

True to their name, these high-speed dome (HD) cameras can move to predefined preset positions at astonishing speeds of up to 400° per second. Furthermore, through their 360° rotation capability and 35x autofocus zoom lens with 12x digital zoom, these Siqura cameras make precision and expediency a priority. In sum, if details and accuracy are vital to a situation, the Siqura HD2x series won't let you down.

No matter where you are, you can configure or view video streams on a PC or even via handheld devices, such as PDAs, since the HD2x series comes with an easy to use web-based user interface. However, in keeping with the implicit integrity upon which surveillance, in general, must rest, privacy masks can be set to cover sensitive areas, an especially useful feature for city centre or retail installations.

Additionally, each of these high-speed PTZ network dome cameras offers dual-streaming, making them capable of simultaneously streaming MJPEG and MPEG-4. So, setting video for specific purposes, such as supervising live scenes with high-resolution MJPEG streams and efficiently storing footage in MPEG-4, is just a simple click away. With the latest H.264 technology just around the corner, Siqura HD cameras will also soon offer the best quality video while at the same time streamlining network performance.

Since surveillance conditions can vary widely even for just one camera, the HD2x series includes an IR cut filter and backlight compensation that can be applied manually or automatically when lighting conditions require it. The HD26 WDR comes with a wide dynamic range functionality to ensure excellent video quality even in the dimmest of circumstances. Moreover, all the HD2x cameras have a built-in image stabiliser to prevent vibrations from disrupting a camera view or footage, such as those caused by wind in pole-mount installations.

Finally, these high-speed cameras are part of the Siqura line, reputed for the quality and reliability of its complete solutions and service. Siqura customers can therefore rest assured that their surveillance solution will work optimally for their specific application for years to come, even as their systems change or expand.
