High resolution thermal image from Hikvision DS-2TD2166-15
HIKVISION has announced new thermal cameras which deliver high resolution 640 x 512-pixel thermal video streams in real time and are not impeded by bad weather or darkness.
Developed in-house, Hikvision’s thermal cameras feature 3 innovative functionalities in image quality enhancement: auto gain control, digital detail enhancement, and 3D digital noise reduction. The AGC adjusts the dynamic range of the image to make the picture retain helpful permeability; DDE based on an algorithm for a region of interest renders more detail in the on-screen image; while 3D DNR minimizes the influence of hot pixels, making images sharper.
Equipped with onboard video analytics, Hikvision thermal cameras boast a full quiver of Hikvision Smart features, including line crossing detection and intrusion detection for perimeter protection. The Smart Tracking function is also available in Speed Dome model cameras.
BGWT reports it has just taken delivery of Panasonic’s new E-Series 1080p camera range and Rob Meachem, GM for BGW Technologies, says the camera is a sight to see.
“Panasonic E-Series 1080P range has just landed in Australia and this product is hot,” Meachem said. “Not only is it feature-rich with 1080p resolution, wide dynamic range, integrated IR, Onvif compliance and a price that will get some attention, but it’s Panasonic – the brand the end users know and trust.
“We are thrilled to have this new 1080p camera line up in our range” Meachem said. “Our customers tell us they are always seeking a technology brand that end customers recognise and it doesn’t get much more recognisable or trusted than Panasonic.”
According to Meachem, technical information, brochures and prices are all available from BGWT and the new cameras are in stock now.
VANDERBILT Eventysis the latest addition to the company’s innovative video portfolio and is now available in Australia from Alarmcorp. Designed to meet the need for a cost-effective solution that doesn't compromise on functionality and ease of use, Eventys offers more than you need for less than you think.
The Eventys range offers variants of up to H.264+ IP compression efficiency, with 1.3MP to 2MP resolution cameras with both fixed and varifocal lens options. Powered via PoE, coupled with automatic IP addressing, along with auto-device detection, making Eventys truly plug and play. Robust, reliable and suitable for a wide variety of applications, the cameras are built into an IP66 rated weatherproof enclosure.
The 2 NVRs are equipped with features commonly found on more expensive devices. A built-in PoE switcher is standard on both 4 or 8 channel variants that support live view, storage, and playback with up to 6MP resolution.
FLIR Systems has announced the launch of the FLIR Quasar Hemispheric mini-dome camera, which provides an immersive, 360-degree real-time and forensic experience using United VMS.
With an indoor/outdoor vandal-resistant housing—coupled with two-way audio, IR illumination and I/O interface—the Quasar Hemispheric camera is fully featured to address a wide range of applications.
The camera supports user-customized views and digital presets without affecting the recording of the complete 360° view, making it the ideal choice for full coverage, panoramic video surveillance.
Features include broadcast quality video, multi-streaming with full frame rates, wall and ceiling modes, vandal-resistance, indoor and outdoor versions, automatic IR-illumination in lowlight conditions and bi-directional audio.
Gallagher has released the Gallagher Class 5 End of Line Module (ELM), which encrypts a security system’s signals.
High value and sensitive assets are normally protected by intruder alarm systems, using 3-4 state analogue monitoring to detect sensor tampering. Without a Class 5 ELM, sites are susceptible to sophisticated attacks, rendering high value assets unprotected.
Gallagher chief technology officer, Steve Bell, said the Class 5 ELM uses the latest digital encryption security standards to protect against all known vulnerabilities, ensuring alarms are always reported should sensors come under attack.
“Most security systems have a weak link with non-authenticated sensor inputs communicating unencrypted with controllers,” said Bell. “The Gallagher Class 5 ELM secures this weakness by extending full end-to-end authentication and encryption from highly secure Gallagher devices to any PIR or sensor in a system”
FrontLine 2 is the IndigoVision second generation body worn video camera
WEARING FrontLine 2, IndigoVision's second generation body worn video camera, every incident is seen, heard and recorded thanks to its incredible 28 hours, encrypted on-board recording, 130-degree lens, HD video and high fidelity audio.
It's robust, too. An IP54 Rated, impact resistant casing and weatherproof micro USB means the FrontLine 2 can withstand the toughest of environments. FrontLine 2 is also highly configurable, with four programmable control buttons and pre-record functionality.
Unlike other Body Worn Video cameras, FrontLine 2 is a part of an end-to-end security system - IndigoVision's security system - delivering a different dimension of safety. A fully integrated user interface for managing security and surveillance video, IndigoVision's Control Center management software puts everything at your fingertips.
HBM FiberSensing optical interrogators and sensors

They’re designed for both laboratory testing and field deployment across a range of industries including civil engineering, energy, R&D, aeronautics and gas pipelines.
Axis Q1615 Mark II with i-CS lens arrived at the SEN office the other day and about 10 minutes later it was up and running as I tried to work out whether or not the partnership between Axis and Computar lives up to the hype.
Actually, it does. The 1080p Q1615 was good anyway and the Computar 2.8-8.5mm i-CS lens; which communicates data about baseline lens geometrical distortion and the exact position of its zoom, focus and iris opening; takes the camera’s capabilities to a higher level. What this camera’s distortion correction does is allow the use of a very wide angle motorised varifocal lens without any of the distracting hobbit hole effect you always see at 2.8mm. Typically, I'd be reaching for about 4.5mm with a lens in this range but you don't need to dial out distortion with the Mark II.
Security 2016 Exhibition in Melbourne gave us a chance to take a look at the latest product releases, get a sense of trends, as well checking out some of the vapourware teasers that manufacturers and distributors roll out at big events.
SECURITY 2016 had a nice feel – it’s a good venue and the square layout at the MCEC somehow mitigates the sense of being tucked away in far corners. The organisers quoted visitor numbers of around 4500, which seemed slightly optimistic from behind Sony's New York Loft Bar. Regardless, it was another good show considering this was a third year in Melbourne thanks to the ongoing revamp of the Exhibition and Convention Centre in Darling Harbour. While some exhibitors were jumping to conclusions on the first day, by the end of the show on Friday afternoon, most were happy with the turnout and quality of the visitors they'd seen.
