The self-contained, self-powered system supports deployment of one or more cameras in the field and offers a built-in radiological alarm sensor as an option.

High-Resolution Cameras

- New cameras from Speco Technologies of Amityville, New York, offer 540 lines of resolution, 0.5 lux low-light sensitivity, and 12 VDC operation. Each camera has full on-screen display control of all major functions, so installers can easily adjust settings correctly the first time.

Security Cameras

- Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc., of Irvine, California, announced that its Imaging Products Division has introduced a new line of security cameras to complement its digital security solutions. The line includes both IP-based and analog units with fixed, dome, and pan-tilt-zoom models.

Megapixel Cameras

- Arecont Vision of Glendale, California, has introduced a full line of H.264 IP cameras. They support multistreaming capabilities for transmission of several video streams at different video formats, frame rates, and/or resolutions.

Analog Bullet Camera

- Panasonic Security Systems of Secaucus, New Jersey, has introduced a new weatherproof camera with a built-in fan, heater, and sun shield to maintain operating temperature in harsh environments.

Intelligent Cameras

- Lumenera Corporation of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, has released two new intelligent camera models that respond to security threats in real time. The Li165 is designed for critical surveillance applications with low-light conditions and/or fast motion.

Camera Positioning

- The new Pelco Spectra IV IP-based camera/dome positioning system offers an open architecture for modularity, advanced features, and broad product line compatibility.

Camera Domes

- New internal and external IP domes from IndigoVision of Edinburgh, Scotland, incorporate a Sony EXview HAD CCD sensor and MPEG-4 or H.264 compression. The IP66 vandal-resistant fixed domes offer a frame rate of 25/30 frames per second with an image quality that is as good as or better than an equivalent analog camera.

Thermal Cameras

- D-Series thermal dome cameras from FLIR Systems, Inc., of Portland, Oregon, let security operators see in the dark and through smoke. The indoor dome cameras are especially valuable in emergencies, when lights go out or smoke obscures conventional cameras.

Megapixel Camera

The VCC-HD4000 features a 4-megapixel image sensor that delivers full high-definition image quality. Image quality is enhanced through the unit’s built-in, glass, 10X HD autofocus zoom lens.

Camera Mount

- Dotworkz Systems of San Diego has introduced the E-Z Lock Pole Mounting System, which employs a tilt-and-locking mechanism to enable the positioning of surveillance cameras at the exact viewing angle needed to compensate for slanting poles or walls. It can also be used for mounting a camera to monitor an up/down application such as an escalator or traffic on a steep hill.

Dome Cameras

- GE Security, Inc., of Bradenton, Florida, has introduced two analog, fixed-dome cameras that offer multiple features previously unavailable in single cameras. The CamPlus 2 DM2 and DR2 are styled to blend into any environment and complement a variety of settings. They perform in extreme high- and low-light situations and provide high-quality surveillance images in a range of discreet commercial applications.

Camera Positioning

- A new ULISSE integrated positioning unit from Videotec of Schio, Italy, is designed specifically for use with thermal cameras. The side opening enclosure is equipped with germanium glass, which is transparent to infrared. The glass covers transmission from 7.5 to 14 micrometers infrared wavelength range with the best optical quality.
