- The Illustra 610 Compact IP Mini-Bullet camera provides exceptional video quality within a small framework, for indoor or outdoor applications where the camera needs to blend into the environment. New from American Dynamics of Westford, Massachusetts, part of the security products business of Tyco, it offers 1080p resolution; var­ious viewing angles, including a horizontal view and a corridor mode to capture video in narrow hallways; and a built-in infrared LED for usable video surveillance in a variety of lighting conditions. Wide dynamic range mitigates the problems of glare and high-contrast scenes. The ONVIF-compliant camera is easy to configure using free Illustra Connect software.


- The IQeye R5 Series bullet cameras from IQinVision of San Juan Capistrano, California, are full-featured indoor and outdoor cameras that support up to 3-meg­a­pixel resolution. Featuring on-camera storage and built-in infrared, the cameras are housed in IP66 outdoor enclosures. They provide 720p or 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second, and 3 megapixels at 20 frames per second. The cameras also support multiple, individually configured H.264 and simultaneous M-JPEG streams.

Modular Cameras

- Axis Communications of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, has introduced a modular camera series that gives customers discreet surveillance solutions with 1080-pixel video and wide dynamic range performance. The AXIS F Network Series also allows great flexibility in choosing the lens form factor and viewing angle that are best for an installation. The series is based on a divided network camera concept, where the camera is split into the lens and image sensor unit, and the main unit. This allows a small sensor unit to be installed discreetly in tight places, while the bigger main unit is located elsewhere and away from public view. The AXIS F41 Main Unit houses the processor, network, power, SD card slot, and other connections, and can connect to one AXIS F sensor unit. Each sensor unit comes with a choice of cables for connecting to the main unit.

Thermal Camera

- The Vinden CZ 320 is a continuous zoom thermal chassis camera from Sierra- Olympic Technologies, Inc., of Hood River, Oregon. It is the first of two camera models in the Vinden CZ series, open-frame chassis cameras for integrators and OEMs in industrial, security, and military markets. The Vinden CZ 320 is offered in both 60-hertz and 9-hertz frame rates. It provides 3x optical zoom and 2x digital zoom and H.264/M-JPEG IP-video streams for Ethernet connectivity, as well as simultaneous NTSC/PAL analog video. The vision processor provides multiple- image processing functions.

Wide-Area Cameras

- Arecont Vision of Glendale, California, has introduced its new MegaBall 2 camera series for wide-area coverage. The MegaBall 2 with an ImmerVision Panomorph lens can capture 180- and 360-degree fields of view with dewarping to provide more angular resolution in peripheral areas than conventional fisheye lenses. The MegaBall 2 Panomorph is a 5-megapixel camera in a tamper-resistant housing. It features day/night operation, dual encoders, privacy masking, extended motion detection, flexible cropping, and the ability to choose power over Ethernet or external power. Integrated cable management and a three-axis adjustment facilitate installation. Cameras are available in wall-, surface-, and flush-mount configurations in a choice of light gray or black housings.

Panoramic Imager

- HGH Infrared Systems of Cambridge, Massachusetts, has introduced the SPYNEL-X, a high-definition IRST (infrared search and track) camera.

Thermal App

- Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd. of Karmiel, Israel, and Lumus Ltd. of Rehovot, Israel, have joined forces to provide mobile long-range night-vision capabilities. The Therm-App mobile device, mounted on headgear, transmits high-resolution images to the Lumus wearable display, providing the user with a large, high-quality image. The combination is ideal for professionals who require hands-free operation in complete darkness or limited visibility. It will help security teams, search-and-rescue responders, and other law enforcement and public safety professionals.

Corner Camera

- The new FLEXIDOME IP corner 9000 MP camera from Bosch of Fairport, New York, enables users to observe locations with poor lighting that are prone to vandalism. The camera features high-resolution optics for maximum detail and image usa­­bility, as well as a wide-angle fisheye lens for covering every area of the room. Integrated infra­red LEDs maintain video clarity even in complete darkness. The rugged, nongrip design makes the camera difficult to tamper with. Its Content Based Imaging Technology lowers bandwidth consumption and storage costs by suppressing irrelevant image noise. The camera integrates with a wide range of security software and recording solutions.

Edge Storage Cameras

- All current IP cameras from Dallmeier of Regensburg, Germany, are equipped with a random access memory (RAM). If the network drops out or becomes overloaded, or if the recording system has to be rebooted, this internal storage can bridge the period when the network is unavailable without loss of data. As soon as the network is restored, SmartBackfill ensures that the recordings stored in the RAM are transmitted rapidly to the Smavia appliance, which saves the data at high speed. Afterwards, the recording of the stream is continued seamlessly and without loss.

Thermal App

- The Therm-App device from Opgal Op­tronic Industries Ltd. of Kar­miel, Israel, works with Android phones to allow mobile thermal imaging for high-resolution images in darkness and inclement weather. It enables tracking of vehicles up to 1,500 meters away and people up to 500 meters away. The lightweight, compact camera offers 384 x 288-pixel resolution for situational awareness, surveillance, location and evidence collection, and personal safety enhancement. The camera enables users to record and share high-quality thermal images and video.

IP Cameras

- The new DINION IP 4000 and 5000 cameras from Bosch Security Systems, INC., of Fairport, New York, combine the latest technology with aesthetic design. Both cameras offer an attractive range of features for image quality, management of bit rates, and low storage requirements, as well as important audio capabilities, cloud-based services, and easy and cost-effective installation. The DINION IP 4000 HD offers 720p resolution, and the DINION IP 5000 HD has 1080p resolution. Both feature intelli­gent Dynamic Noise Reduction. A built-in microphone and two-way audio allow the operator or security guard to listen to and also question intruders or communicate with visitors who appear to need assistance.
