Gordon MacSween, Managing Director at Vision Systems, says:
"We are already market leaders in detecting threats with our VESDA range of very early warning smoke detectors and our ADPRO range of video security systems. Our next step will be to further integrate the Millbank voice response products to complement our offering by adding a response capability.
“This may be the automatic announcement of a staged evacuation in the event of a fire or preventing damage or loss by telling an intruder that they have been detected, police called and for them to leave the premises.”
Neil Voce, sales and business development director voice response systems at Vision Systems, says; "We are responding to a need among our customers for an integrated early warning solution.
“We can see significant revenue opportunities to be gained from a truly integrated systems approach over the coming years.”
Particularly suited to small retailers who need to provide footage to the police on a regular basis, an integral CD writer provides an immediate way to copy both image and audio data off the DVR’s hard disk for a complete record of any given incident.
The new versions offer the same look and feel as the existing Eco4 and D4 models for ease of installation training and use. And since no external CD recorders, SCSI cables or power supplies are required, installation time and costs are kept to a minimum.
Each CD created includes playback software that runs automatically on a standard PC, without needing to invest in any additional equipment or install extra software.
Dedicated Micros' Retail Solutions (RS) software can be supplied with D4 CD – allowing recorded video to be associated with text data from EPOS systems and instantly copied to CD, helping to combat instances of staff fraud such as under-ringing and sweet-hearting.
These new RAS’ combine advanced functionality, ease of use and elegant styling to what is the most visible element of the customer’s security system. The unit features easily readable LCD text displaying system programming, alarm and access control functions. Also available with a built-in Smart Card Reader that can be used with the Challenger and Alliance Smart Card format, they can eliminate the need for a separate card reader.
The face of the Arming Station displays 16 area status indicator LEDs, while the LCD details alarms or pre-programmed text. The codepad buttons require only gentle finger pressure to achieve full depression, which is indicated by an audible beep.
Phoenix allows users to configure a system consisting of multiple video and audio, data signals, and contacts in a variety of topologies including point to point, linear and split linear, self healing ring, and mixed configurations in a drop/repeat/insert environment.The system supports up to 255 nodes, 16 duplex videos, 16 duplex audios, 16 duplex data streams and 32 duplex contacts.Up to 16 full-frame, real-time video feeds can be distributed simultaneously across a network, and because the video is not compressed, each signal comes through the fibre as broadcast quality images.
The small two-rack form factor of the Pheonix incorporates an LCD screen and LEDs to provide the user with up-to-the-minute feedback on any card in the system, as well as information such as temperature and power supply voltages.
When you think digital video surveillance cameras you have to think Axis Communications. And one of the beautiful things about the Axis product line up is that it’s constantly evolving - pushing away at the performance boundaries of what we expect from our digital solutions.
Essentially with the 231D and 232D Network Domes, Axis has used all its knowledge of networks and digital technology to build a family of cameras designed to offer the very best of both worlds – a strong optics package and connectivity that’s second to none. Have no doubt about this, with the 231D and 232D (day/night) Network Dome Cameras,
Incorporating a newly developed 1/3–inch CCD with SuperExwave technology, the camera can achieve extremely high sensitivity levels, and utilising Sony’s newly developed Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology allows the cameras to attain a high horizontal resolution of 540 TV lines.
The newly developed CCD imager offers a minimum illumination of 0.55 lx and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of more than 50dB, allowing these cameras to reproduce amazingly clear and detailed images.
With excellent picture quality, sophisticated features, and a stylish new design, the SSC-E453P is the ideal solution for a wide range of surveillance applications.
The recorder hard disk has a capacity of 160GB, equivalent to seven videotapes. This allows continuous or time-lapse recording for a week or longer, depending on recording quality and speed settings. There’s the usual date/time or alarm events, with images retrieved almost instantly.
Simple front panel controls, – including jog/shuttle – make it straightforward to navigate through the menu, select options and view images. For greater flexibility in viewing, storing and sharing, individual frames or video can be exported to a Compact Flash card then transferred to a PC.
The DVR1C records both video and audio signals. It can connect directly to a single camera, or to multiple camera inputs routed via a multiplexer. It offers consistently superior image and audio quality when compared to traditional time lapse recorders, with no degradation of recorded images.
Features of the new sensor include First Step Processing (FSP); Pet Friendly processing and design; draft and insect immunity; temperature compensation, installation-friendly two-piece design, easy wiring access with plug-in terminals and no range or height adjustments.
The BLP1-P detector can distinguish between signals caused by humans and signals caused by one or two animals with a combined total weight of about 14kg. The Blue Line PIR has optional camera modules.
Unlike conventional surveillance cameras, the new TK-C1430E is equipped to handle harsh day and night lighting conditions. The On/Off IR cut filter makes it possible to capture both colour and black and white (monochrome) images with just one camera. The filter is either manually or automatically switched "in" during the day in bright or sunlight conditions for colour images and "out" at night time for monochrome / IR images. Image sensitivity can be as low as 0.45 for colour and 0.015 for monochrome.
