New Siqura IP cameras support multiple streaming technologies

The H.264 Siqura HD6x PTZ series support MPEG-4 and MJPEG streaming in addition to H.264.

November 25, 2009 – Optelecom-NKF recently announced the release of the H.264 Siqura HD6x PTZ IP camera series. The high-speed dome camera line comprises three pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) IP cameras: the indoor HD60 as well as the outdoor HD62 and HD66 WDR. All of the HD6x cameras support open streaming architecture (OSA) for integration with video management systems.

The quad-streaming HD6x cameras support H.264 streaming in addition to MPEG-4 and MJPEG dual streaming. This flexibility in compression standards makes it easy for HD6x series cameras to offer the best-quality video while streamlining network performance, Optelecom says. The HD6x cameras can move to predefined preset positions at speeds up to 400-degrees per second. With the HD6x cameras, PTZ coordinate positions can be queried or set through the OSA application programming interface. The cameras offer 26x or 35x autofocus zoom lenses with 12x digital zoom. The HD6x series also comes with a Web-based user interface, allowing users to configure them or view video streams from a PC or handheld devices.

Standard features include day/night and backlight compensation that can be applied manually or automatically when lighting conditions require. All HD66 WDR cameras have a built-in image stabilizer to prevent vibrations from disrupting a camera view or footage.
