| Infinova provides megapixel, IP, analogue surveillance cameras, fiber optic communications, etc. |
announced that it will introduce a new family of ONVIF standard IP and megapixel cameras that will help integrators more easily provide their customers with solutions that feature interoperability among hardware to hardware and hardware to software products. The ONVIF compatible M-Series family, to be formally introduced at IFSEC 2011
, May 16-19, in Birmingham, United Kingdom, Booth 5F10, provides ONVIF compatibility with a suite of fixed, mini-dome and high-speed megapixel dome PTZ cameras that provide both analogue and digital operation.
"While helping their customers migrate from analogue to digital video systems, integrators have been tearing their hair out because, seemingly, every digital camera vendor has created a separate camera interface," emphasises Mark S. Wilson, Infinova vice president, marketing. "Since these cameras are based on ONVIF standards, integrators will no longer need to compromise to get a best in class solution."
The ONVIF standard Infinova M-Series cameras include megapixel resolution at 20 frames per second (fps), offer on-camera SD (secure digital) storage cards and are ruggedised. The PTZ dome cameras provide high quality video 360 degree continuous rotation with pans at both high and low speeds.
To make installation easier for integrators, all ONVIF compatible M-Series cameras feature both IP and analogue outputs. During installation or maintenance, integrators can attach a portable test monitor to facilitate easy and fast focusing. The dual-output cameras let the user record on both NVRs and DVRs, even at the same time if wanted.
The cameras can be vandal-proofed, handle hot and cold extremes and have IP66 and IP67 ratings, protecting against water and dust.

The ONVIF compatible PTZ dome cameras also provide 360 degree continuous panning at high megapixel resolutions and 90 degree tilting. Pans can be as slow as 0.08 degree per second to a high of 200 degrees per second.
Included is the popular Infinova V1771 high definition (HD) 360 degree continuous rotation megapixel IP PTZ dome camera with 1.3 megapixel resolution, which provides high-definition video output as both an IP and an analogue YPbPr signal and delivers 30 fps with an 18x optical zoom and a 12x digital zoom. The camera leverages a 1.3-megapixel progressive-scan CCD. It provides low-light performance at 0.02 lux and offers both MPEG-4 and M-JPEG compression. Users can produce 20 fps at 1280x960 resolution or 30 fps at 1280x720 resolution. Its 360 degree continuous pan with vertical auto flip provides smooth movement, high sensitivity and low noise. Pan speed can be as low as 0.08 degrees per second to as fast as 200 degrees per second.
