FLIR Launches Quasar Premium Mini-Dome and Quasar Premium Bullet
FLIR Systems has announced 2 optical camera options as part of the Quasar CCTV camera range, Quasar Premium Mini-Dome and Quasar Premium Bullet.
Designed for use in demanding indoor and outdoor environments, the new FLIR Quasar Premium Mini-dome and Quasar Premium bullet deliver forensic image quality, tight integration, and advanced cybersecurity features required for critical infrastructure sites, remote facilities, or large areas requiring close monitoring, according to FLIR.
The FLIR Quasar Premium Mini-dome is available with 5MP HD or 4K Ultra-HD resolutions, while the FLIR Quasar Premium bullet series is available with 4MP Quad HD and 4K Ultra-HD resolutions, with a variety of lens options for extended range performance for perimeter security. Both cameras have an SD-card for on-edge recording and redundancy, while also meeting the H.265 video compression standard to minimise network bandwidth and storage space.
The FLIR Quasar Premium Mini-dome series is IP66 rated for dust and waterproof protection and can be ceiling- or wall-mounted in minutes. In no-light conditions, the unit can provide up to 40 meters of visibility via on-board near-infrared illumination. Improved three-shutter wide dynamic range (WDR) (130db) offers optimal light balance in scenarios with both light and dark spots. The dome camera has an IK10 vandal-proof rating and is available with an optional smoke bubble accessory used to obscure camera position.
Meanwhile, the FLIR Quasar Premium bullet series is also IK10 vandal-proof and designed to be permanently installed, typically pole-mounted, for video surveillance. It covers up to 60 meters of visibility via on-board near-infrared Illumination and also features 3-shutter WDR (130db). The camera is IP67 rated for dustproof and waterproof protection while offering an extended operating temperature range from -40 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees to 140 degrees Fahrenheit) for use in extreme conditions.
Cybersecurity features include unique protection from log-in attacks, hardware and software authentication, and encrypted communication to help keep facilities safe from cyber threats. They maintain open platform compatibility and can be used with a large variety of third-party VMS solutions or FLIR United VMS. They also include bi-directional audio and operator control of input/output devices for remote monitoring and responding to events.
To further lower the cost of ownership and ease of installation, the cameras include the FLIR accessory and mounting ecosystem. The cameras support the 1G network for better streaming and reduced bandwidth issues. Both cameras also include customised video flow options for live and recorded video, including frames-per-second output adjustment and encoding for extra streams. The Quasar Premium bullet and Premium Dome editions are available for purchase globally from FLIR or authorised distributors. FLIR solutions are distributed locally by Sektor.
