The IndigoVision IP camera range has been enhanced with the launch of the newly enhanced Standard Definition (SD) camera range, including the 9000 range of fixed and fixed dome cameras, complementing the existing IndigoVision high definition (HD) and megapixel (MP) camera ranges.

Traditionally audio may not have been seen as a priority in the CCTV sector and as a result most IP cameras use outdated audio encoding technologies such as G.711 and G.728 compression. These technologies deliver poor quality audio, especially when picking up sounds other than the human voice, such as breaking glass. However, a new breed of security professionals in the industry are taking a different approach to audio, demanding high quality audio in their CCTV projects.

“People often think of audio in the security industry as being a niche application,” stated Alex Swanson, IndigoVision’s head of engineering. “Before, most applications for audio were in a police custody type environment but we are seeing rising CCTV markets, such as Australia and Brazil, using audio more creatively.

“Because the audio in our cameras use Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), it means that you can hear much more than the human voice – gunshots, breaking glass or even footsteps. By adding this functionality into more of our IP cameras, it means we are now meeting the demands of these markets and making it even easier for remote viewing and communication,” says Swanson.
