Johnson Controls is announcing two new camera models to the Illustra Pro line, with the Pro Compact Mini-Domes in 2MP and 3MP resolution, ideal for applications such as retail stores, healthcare facilities and banks where low profile and aesthetics are important. The Illustra 2MP and 3MP Pro Compact Mini-Domes are equipped with various viewing angles including corridor mode, a 9×16 field of view aspect ratio for vertically oriented scenes, which is optimal for hallways, aisles or any area where a landscape format is not ideal.
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.

Vicon announces the launch of a new line of 180-degree ultra-high-definition multi-sensor cameras. Designed for providing highly detailed coverage of expansive areas, such as airports, perimeter security and city surveillance, the new V1000 line is compatible with many industry leading VMS solutions, including Vicon’s Valerus and ViconNet, and does not require video dewarping by VMS software in order to display an undistorted panoramic image. The V1000 models are fixed camera domes containing four separate camera modules that work together to deliver a seamless 180-degree view. Video can be monitored as a single horizontal image as well as separate quadrants.
3xLOGIC announced that, in cooperation with Control Installations of Iowa (Ci3), the two companies have donated a completed video surveillance system for this iconic ball field and movie set located in Dyersville, Iowa. Field of Dreams, released in 1989, is a movie that has inspired millions and became an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture of the Year. Several weeks ago there was an act of vandalism which was fairly extensive and, unfortunately, also involved destruction of expensive irrigation equipment.
Lanner Electronics Inc., launches next-generation rugged, fanless V3 Series vehicle gateway controllers – V3G and V3S.
