Minneapolis-based Honeywell has announced the launch of its new EQUIP Series, a family of IP network products, including cameras, encoders, network video recorders, and digital video recorders. Using an open architecture and single application program interface, it works consistently across IP-based systems. The series includes pan-tilt-zoom, mini-dome, and box-style cameras that deliver video at a rate of 30 frames per second. MPEG-4 compression for all video provides efficient compression with better image quality and faster video transmission. Users can stream and view live or recorded images over a network or the Internet. The series is designed for applications where object detection is required in general or low-light conditions. The system is also recommended in situations where object recognition is an integral part of the security and business operation.
