LAS VEGAS, USA (AVING Special Report on 'ISC West 2008') -- <Visual News> Honeywell announced the launch of its new EQUIP Series, a family of IP network products composed of cameras, encoders, network video recorders and digital video recorders, during ISC West 2008. With an open architecture and single application program interface (API), Honeywell’s line of EQUIP Series products works consistently across IP-based systems.
The EQUIP Series of IP cameras are available in PTZ, mini-dome, or box style. These IP-ready cameras transmit high quality images over longer distances, and are capable of delivering video at a rate of 30 frames per second at 4CIF for real-time, high-resolution video recording. MPEG-4 compression for all video streams provides the cameras with a method for compressing video that is more efficient than MJPEG, giving users better image quality and sharpness and faster video transmission using smaller network bandwidth. A robust camera sabotage feature detects a change in the field of view or focus, and instantly notifies the operator if a camera has been deliberately blinded or otherwise vandalized.
With advanced compression and digital functionality, users can stream and view live or recorded images over a network or the Internet. The cameras are supported by a Web browser and a variety of video management systems including Honeywell’s next generation video management system. And for concentrated security systems requiring hybrid functionality, EQUIP cameras can be installed on Honeywell’s Fusion 3.5 DVR.
“Because they form common ground between the security department and the IT department, our EQUIP Series cameras provide system flexibility and scalability,” said Peter Simmons, product manager, Honeywell. “Our mini-dome and box cameras support Power over Ethernet (PoE). And because IP solutions aren’t confined to a predetermined number of camera inputs on a DVR, installations are easily upgraded to an unlimited number of cameras. That’s what we call total flexibility,” he added.
The EQUIP Series is designed for applications where object detection is required in general or low light conditions and object recognition is an integral part of the site’s security and business operation. These versatile cameras provide an ideal video surveillance solution for indoor and outdoor applications in transportation, retail, educational, and other commercial markets.
