New Siqura camera line and multi codec S-44 from Optelecom-NKF at IFSEC 2008

Product Profile

At the IFSEC show in Birmingham, Optelecom-NKF, under its SIQURA label, introduced an extensive line-up of IP and analogue cameras, and its newest encoder, the S-44 E-MC.  The new Siqura cameras will come in both analogue and IP formats with a wide range of features in both.

The introduction of these cameras strengthens Optelecom-NKF's position as a leading force in the global IP surveillance market, enhancing the company's reputation as an innovator of networked video solutions and game-changing video codecs and network video recorders.

In addition to features such as Power over Ethernet, Lux ratings of 0.05, and two-way audio, the new Siqura cameras boast standards setting Wide Dynamic Range and Image Stabilization.  Wide Dynamic Range is offered in all four form factors - box, fixed, mini, and high-speed dome - allowing you to pull the smallest detail from scenes where there is dramatic contrast, such as a sun drenched background and a shadowy foreground.  Couple this with Image Stabilization and you have a surveillance camera that will provide crisp, sharp images regardless of lighting or wind load.

With its introduction of the Siqura S-44 E-MC (Multi-Codec) encoder, Optelecom-NKF raises the bar for quality and features.  The S-44 E-MC, boasting 4 video processors, can take 4 analogue video (NTSC/PAL) inputs and convert them to MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and MJPEG concurrently.  In effect, for each video signal in, you can stream to different unicast and/or multicast destinations, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and MJPEG, all at different frame rates and resolutions.

With the introduction of the Siqura line, Optelecom-NKF goes one step further by adopting a philosophy and architecture of open, standards based, communications protocol.  This makes integration with third party applications such as analytics and management software relatively fast and painless.
