IP thermal cameras run in full darkness

Geutebruck adds new thermal cameras to its G-Cam range.

Geutebruck’s new professional IP thermal cameras are designed for unobtrusive video surveillance or video motion detection in total darkness, mist or smoke. With lenses ranging from 7.5 mm to 35 mm, horizontal fields of view from 40° to 9°, and frame rates from 9 to 30 fps, the company's new G-Cam/PTHC camera series includes a model for increasing accuracy and reliability in video analytics-based systems, as well as one for providing very early intruder detection by revealing people at up to 1450 m and vehicles at up to 3400 m.

All product variants use uncooled VOx microbolometer image capture with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, says the company. A special image contrast enhancement feature ensures sharp black-and-white pictures with excellent contrast, while the Geutebruck specialist security H264CCTV compression format delivers video with smooth fluid motion in all speeds and replay modes, without jumps, jerks or other evidential gaps. All facilitate easy installation with IEEE.3 af compliant PoE and are ONVIF-compatible.

Jan Schwager, Geutebruck’s product strategy and support manager, comments, “The new G-CAM/PTHC camera range enables us to include thermal imaging within the single source solutions which we offer our partners and customers. Being fully compatible with the Geutebruck system 'world' makes these cameras ideal partners for our G-Tect/VMX video analysis and enables exceptional detection accuracy with significantly reduced material and installation costs.”
