Panasonic i-Pro Extreme IR Bullet Camera Review

Panasonic i-Pro Extreme IR Bullet
Panasonic i-Pro Extreme IR Bullet

With a strong feature set, great build quality, impressive specifications, including 60ips, 144dB of WDR and H.265 compression, 45m IR, auto image stabilisation and loads more, Panasonic’s 1080p i-Pro Extreme bullet camera nicely balances features and cost.

THERE’S a lot to like about Panasonic’s WV-S1531L iPro Extreme Bullet. It has nice build quality, with a combination of metal and silver poly, is very easy to install and has pleasing performance vectors, including a high frame rate that doesn’t blow out the bitrate budget. It’s not the sharpest 1080p bullet camera on the market but contrives to deliver faces and plates when many other bullet cameras can’t thanks to liberal doses of amplification.

Inner Range Announces Appointment of New CEO, Peter Krincevski

FORMER CEO and ongoing managing director Vin Lopes says that he is excited at the prospect of expanding the management team by passing the day to day baton on to a younger champion. Lopes said the move would allow him to spend more time on strategic planning for the CSD/Inner Range group of companies and perhaps allow a little extra time to smell the roses.

Both men admit that the transition will be a gradual one over many months and Lopes said he would not be far away if needed. Lopes will still be active in the company in his role as managing director but day to day administration of the company affairs will be taken on by Krincevski as he comes up to speed. While Krincevski is a new comer to the Security Industry he does come with excellent credentials from his previous roles.

Body worn cameras attracted plenty of attention at SecTech Roadshow

WITH SecTech Roadshow under our belts it’s well worth considering pre-Security 2017 trends as we start to think about which products and technologies are most likely to rattle the cage at this year’s big exhibition at Darling Harbour in Sydney late July. 

Given what we saw at SecTech, access control is becoming the electronic security industry’s golden child, with lovely new product coming from all directions and the established players releasing excellent new solutions and upgrades in their own right. From the point of view of installers and integrators, the key with access control is to balance maximum performance with ease of installation and competitive price.
