IndigoVision announced that it has enhanced its 9000 PTZ camera range to provide reliable video surveillance under conditions of wind and other environmental aspects found in large outdoor sites that can affect the hardware and image quality.
Offering high quality, low bandwidth, standard definition video even in ultra-low lighting conditions, the company says the 9000 PTZ has now been re-designed to withstand weather elements. Operators can monitor large areas and pan and zoom on incidents as they occur with exceptionally low latency, ensuring smooth camera control, says the company.
Pendant-mounted cameras are inevitably affected by wind, particularly when 'zoomed in' on a scene. The new 9000 PTZs therefore include automatic image stabilization and the proprietary StableZoom technology, to minimize the effects of movement and ensure effective monitoring and recording of events. Options are also available to suit any lighting condition or environment. Two new optical zoom variants for the IndigoVision 9000 PTZ cameras are offered:
-- A 28x optical zoom (plus 12x digital) StableZoom product is suitable for day and night operation with market leading low light performance.
-- A 36x optical zoom (plus 12x digital) StableZoom product also comes with day/ night capability, plus wide dynamic range (WDR) for challenging lighting situations and progressive scan sensor for improved video quality on PC monitors.
All of the 9000 PTZ dome cameras work seamlessly with IndigoVision's SMS4 security management application, and are offered as an in-ceiling camera or as a pendant camera (in Standard, Environmental and Arctic varieties), with a range of mounting options to suit any position. The company guarantees full frame rate video on the cameras, giving users confidence that no evidence or incident coverage will be missed. Dual encoding allows simultaneous transmission of both high and low bandwidth streams, and low latency ensures smooth control and fast response for operators.
