Vicon Industries, introduced its new V988 line of 4K cameras, which deliver the sharp, highly detailed image quality of Ultra HD video. Available in dome and bullet style cameras, these new cameras feature a 3.6-11 mm motorized varifocal lens and IR illuminators, making them appropriate for use in a wide range of applications and lighting conditions. Video captured by these cameras allows users to take advantage of the full display potential of today’s 4K monitors and provides incredible detail without pixilation when zooming into recorded video for investigative purposes.
Conventional surveillance cameras are already capable of capturing video in daytime and well-lit areas. However, when faced with a poorly lit area or at night, these cameras’ video capture abilities begin to diminish as sensors must compensate for the lack of light by increasing sensitivity, thus producing a noisy image, if one is produced at all. Since clear day and night monitoring is an important benchmark in assessing a surveillance system’s effectiveness, thermal imaging devices present a clear advantage in their ability to convert heat energy into an image visible to the human eye.
New from Sperry West is a small suitcase with a hidden camera that operates on internal batteries. Already in use, this unit has been catching thieves in various locations including hotels. Inside the SW3040DW is a miniature video camera and a digital wireless transmission system. The case “sees” through a tiny hole and sends the signal to its dedicated receiver. The security team can then choose to record the video on their own DVR &/or simply add a monitor and view the activity. Also available is the SW3040DVR, which, instead of transmitting the signal, actually records all motion internally.
Just Add Power (J+P) will unveil the 725POE 2GΩ/3G+ SDI Power over Ethernet (PoE) transmitter at InfoComm 2018, June 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. J+P will demonstrate the transmitter’s scalable, cost-effective approach to adding SDI video sources to a 4K system. The New 2GΩ/3G+ SDI PoE Transmitter Adds SDI Support to J+P’s 4K System. Eliminating the need for an SDI-HDMI converter in the IP video distribution chain, integrators have the flexibility to add an SDI source to their 4K infrastructure.
The urgent challenge for security personnel to noninvasively scan people in real time and in public to detect and “see” if they are carrying weapons or explosives without physically searching them will soon be solved with the launch of SWORD by Royal Holdings Technologies Corporation. SWORD, the world’s first mobile 3D imaging scanner, attaches to a Google Pixel 2 XL smartphone and Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus. SWORD can be used to scan backpacks and handbags that are being carried or have been left unattended. It can also detect listening devices used for espionage and intelligence gathering.
