IndigoVision launched its new Enhanced High Definition (HD) cameras. With the latest camera sensor and processor technology the Enhanced HD camera range delivers both HD video and advanced camera intelligence while reducing total security project costs.
Discussing the challenges presented by HD security cameras, John Semple, IndigoVision head of product management, commented: “As camera resolution increases from standard definition to HD, more network data is transmitted from the camera, making video distribution difficult, particularly over wide area networks or wireless infrastructure. There is also a significant increase in data which raises storage costs.
“Many IP video security systems use weaker camera sensors and processor hardware, resulting in signal noise, poorer video quality, huge bandwidth requirement and less intelligence in the camera. To overcome the resulting video network distribution issues these systems compromise by reducing frame rate or accepting poorer quality video. Security managers don’t see this until the cameras have been installed, and then question the benefit of HD video.”
IndigoVision’s Enhanced HD cameras feature the latest 1/2.7-inch camera sensor technology providing HD picture detail and clarity. Combined with dual pixel Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and a mechanical IR cut filter, high image quality is still delivered even under challenging lighting conditions. IndigoVision’s unique dual processor technology has been upgraded with the latest Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and ARM processors, this means stunning HD video quality at dramatically lower network bandwidth, resulting in reduced video storage costs and HD video that is easier to distribute over networks.
Superior camera features include; advanced analytics such as virtual tripwire and counterflow detection, robust security through a Linux firewall and no requirement for a central management server, thanks to IndigoVision’s Distributed Network Architecture (DNA) solution design. By using an FPGA processor, the Enhanced HD camera range features can be further improved with firmware upgrades, future-proofing camera investment. This design approach has resulted with IndigoVision’s cameras being deployed for demanding projects such as five Olympic Games and multiple G8 Summits.
