| CamVu500 camera has power over ethernet which allows power and data transmission with the same cable |
Dedicated Micros part of AD Group will be showcasing its new CamVu500 IP camera at Intersec 2011, which features Integrated Camera Recording, an in-built enterprise video server and significantly, has been designed with Closed IPTV the next step in IP video security - firmly in mind. The latest, and most sophisticated addition, to the popular CamVu range provides excellent low light performance and is configured to transmit and record images in real-time.
Being optimised for Closed IPTV allows the CamVu500 to work seamlessly as part of a deterministic, zero configuration, IP video solution where it can be securely locked down within a private network, and set-up as a 'trusted endpoint', making it an ideal camera choice for those looking to adopt this approach to IP CCTV infrastructure for simplicity of set-up and to deter potentially damaging hacking attacks.
The outstanding low light capabilities of the CamVu500 are realised through the adoption of a state-of-the-art CMOS progressive scan sensor that provides exceptional low light performance which ensures that colour images can be produced even in dimly lit scenes, conditions which other solutions may find problematic.
CamVu500 is able to transmit multiple simultaneous MPEG-4 and/or JPEG images to any number of associated NetVu connected devices
By also having a specialised semiconductor (a Visual Signal Processor or ViSP) built in to the camera, effectively gives the CamVu500 the capabilities of an Enterprise level video server in a compact package at the edge of the network.
In practical terms this means that the CamVu500 is able to transmit multiple simultaneous MPEG-4 and/or JPEG images to any number of associated NetVu Connected devices for image viewing, with the potential for each stream to be tailored, 'on-the-fly', to suit the viewer's bandwidth requirements.
Another attractive feature of the CamVu500 is the provision of a PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector, which basically means that power can be supplied to the camera on the same cable that is used for data transmission. For those looking to add extra functionality to their CCTV solution a feature of the CamVu500 which stands out is the fact that it is Analytics Capable. Essentially this means that, with the relevant license/unlock code, the latest intelligent video analytics solutions from Dedicated Micros such as Object Left/Removed, Detection Tripwire and Counting Tripwire can all be hosted locally on the camera.
Said Salim Idris, (General Manager) Middle East, Dedicated Micros: "The CamVu500 is a fitting addition to our CamVu range of IP cameras with its combination of low light performance and, crucially, the adoption of the latest technology trends, such as Integrated Camera Recording and our award-winning Closed IPTV, which set it apart from competing models."
