Stretch Inc., the pioneer and leader in software configurable processors, announced availability of its VRC6404HD, the world’s first high definition PCIe DVR add-in card. The new card is capable of high definition capture and compression of up to four channels of high definition video at full frame rate using multiple CODEC options.
Video Surveillance sector is witnessing a new trend and that is increased interest in adopting 4K video technology. But do you think that 4K video technology will help an enterprise to watch for intruders, monitor the premises, and even assist with court cases where a theft or a break-in has occurred?
Coinciding perfectly with the Security trade fair, Dallmeier is bringing a new line of cameras onto the market: The 5000 series features resolutions up to 4K and a special “Nightline” range for optimal image reproduction even in poor light conditions. Whether in the form of a redesigned box camera or a vandal-resistant dome camera – the new 5000 series cameras are most remarkable for their high resolution, frame rate and light sensitivity. The latest generation of encoders provides for realtime ultra-HD video (2160p/30) in the DF5400HD range: These cameras deliver pinpoint sharp 4K pictures in real time and support resolutions of up to 8-megapixels. If 3K or resolutions up to 6-megapixels are sufficient, the DF5300HD range is perfect.
The new Panomera® lines differ primarily in light sensitivity and frame rate. Baseline, with a frame rate of 12.5 fps and a light sensitivity of 0.5 lux is an excellent choice for well-lit scenes. Topline, with a light sensitivity of 0.1 lux and a frame rate of 30 fps is an “all-round talent” for good to moderate illumination. Nightline, with a light sensitivity of 0.002 lux and a frame rate of 30 fps, is ideal even for night-time applications. Thus any situation at all can be mastered brilliantly, including those where lighting is poor.
Researchers at MIT, Microsoft, and Adobe have developed an algorithm that can reconstruct an audio signal by analyzing minute vibrations of objects depicted in video. In one set of experiments, they were able to recover intelligible speech from the vibrations of a potato-chip bag photographed from 15 feet away through soundproof glass. In other experiments, they extracted useful audio signals from videos of aluminum foil, the surface of a glass of water, and even the leaves of a potted plant.
Organizations in many industries are using video surveillance to improve safety and security, protect business assets, meet legal requirements and much more. To meet these needs, organizations are installing more high definition cameras and retaining the video longer. However, higher camera resolutions, higher frame rates, and expanding retention requirements are putting pressure on both storage […]

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Feb 20, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Axis Communications , the market leader in network video, announces the next generation of its market-leading system-on-chip specifically designed for network video cameras and video encoders. The new ARTPEC-5 (Axis Real Time Picture Encoder) is based on dual core multiprocessor architecture, features a larger cache size and higher memory throughput. More processing power and performance provide increased capabilities for intelligent video processing and video analytics applications. The new ARTPEC-5 chip features support for the H.264 High Profile video compression standard and high frame rate (60 fps) encoding in full 1080p HDTV resolution. This resembles twice the frame rate and resolution offered by conventional HDTV video surveillance solutions today. High frame rates capture quick movements in detail such as the license plates of fast moving vehicles. With full HDTV resolution, large overview areas can be monitored without compromising image detail when an incident occurs. With the ARTPEC-5, Axis introduces an optimized design resulting in reduced power consumption of network video cameras and video encoders. The new chip can handle more video streams simultaneously than previous generations, features a faster SD-card interface for edge storage and allows Axis to design cameras with advanced image processing capabilities to address the most demanding video surveillance challenges. With its dual core multiprocessor architecture, larger cache size and higher memory throughput, the new ARTPEC-5 chip provides more processing power and performance for intelligent video processing and video analytics applications. With AXIS Camera Application Platform , users can […]
