Major performance upgrade for Vicon dome cameras

Product Profile

Vicon will be adding yet more performance and functionality to its fixed-dome ranges during 2010. This will mean enhancements of the V910V926VC-600VC-700 and SurveyorVFT fixed dome models. 

With the exception of WDR models, all of the domes will benefit from a new camera module that delivers dramatically improved image quality as well as offering additional features. These include Dynamic Range to improve the details in bright and low light areas of an image and Digital Noise Reduction which improves image quality in low light environments and provides a better compression ratio to reduce video storage requirements. 

The new Day/Night camera module, which has a privacy masking feature and an on-screen menu, can capture superb quality colour images at 560TVL even when lighting levels may be as low as 0.3 Lux and equally high quality monochrome images in night time conditions at 0.01 Lux. 

New WDR models will be using an improved version of the Pixim camera module to provide enhanced dynamic range by making use of the patented industry-leading Digital Pixel System®technology which provides pixel-by-pixel analysis and processing. Key improvements offered by the new WDR models are a correction for colour roll when capturing video under fluorescent lighting and an optional high-resolution mode which is controlled through the menu system. 

"This performance upgrade of what has been a very successful product line for us, demonstrates Vicon's commitment to an ongoing R&D programme and a determination to provide our customers with a competitive edge by equipping them with leading edge CCTV and video management solutions," said Richard Allen-Miles, Vicon's Sales Director for the UK and Ireland.
