Vicon Industries brings a new level of convenience and simplicity to its VAX Access Control solution with today’s introduction of mobile credentialing. This new feature allows VAX customers to present their smartphones, instead of cards or fobs, to specialized Bluetooth-enabled VAX door readers. Upon installation of a custom smartphone “wallet” app and a simple authentication process that links that app to the specific phone, users enter their personal VAX credentials into the wallet. Multiple credentials can be accommodated.
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.
Vicon Industries has introduced a new 3MP version of its heavy-duty Roughneck V-CELL-HD-B camera, specially designed for use in custodial suites and prison cells.

Its unique triangular shape accommodates mounting at the juncture of two walls and the ceiling and, once installed, the camera should be permanently sealed to the wall to create a ligature-proof and water-resistant housing.

Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 decreased 39% to $6.6 million as compared to $10.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Revenues weakened across all market segments due principally to a continuing reliance on legacy product offerings and the continuing market effects of previously reported camera line issues.
