Brickcom Bullet Camera seriesBrickcom has recently announced availability of an outdoor bullet network camera series. The Brickcom Bullet Camera series adopts Wide Dynamic Range sensors that allow the bullet camera to handle extreme variations in brightness within the same sense. It also makes it possible to view whatever the human eye is able to view under rapidly changing lighting conditions.

The Brickcom Bullet Camera series offers a highly efficient H.264/MJPEG/MPEG-4 video compression which reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without ever compromising the quality of your image. It can also deliver dual configurable video streams simultaneously at 30fps at a D1 resolution.

The Brickcom Bullet Camera series also has support for power over Ethernet which enables the bullet camera to receive power through the same cable it receives data transmission through. This makes installation simple and eliminates your need for an external power source. There is also support for SD/SDHC memory cards which allows the camera to back up local storage if a data connection is lost.

Smart Focus is a special function added to the cameras that allows users and installers to configure settings remotely in order to get the best picture quality without any complicated procedures. Brickcom also provides multiple wireless options to make connectivity to your network easier by adopting IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n technology and a 3.5G HSUPA module. Installation will not be restricted by location or landforms and the Brickcom Bullet Camera series can be set with any wireless or 3G signals.

In addition to that, the Brickcom Bullet Camera series comes with an IP67 enclosure allowing the camera to resist rust, torrential rain, high winds, dust, snow, ice or any other kind of harsh condition. The industrial fan and heater located in the Brickom Bullet Camera series also allows the cameras to resist harsh weather.

Posted in Bullet Camera Review with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2011 by zackduncan

Compro logoCompro Technology is expected to present 3G wireless IP video surveillance solutions and also a brand new line of network video recorders that are designed for home and small business users at this year’s upcoming Secutech 2011.

There are a ton of advantages to having video surveillance technology that utilizes 3G technology. With 3G wireless connectivity, cameras from Compro allow for a lower cabling cost as well as a simpler installation. 3G cameras also do not require building or maintaining a network infrastructure or a WiFi hotspot. In addition to that, unlike installing cameras with WiFi or wired internet connections, the installation area of a 3G camera is not dependent on the availability of WiFi or Ethernet ports.

Compro believes that 3G cameras offer true flexibility in terms of installation location and mobility and that this brings new dimensions to the market of surveillance cameras. That is why Compro will be introducing 3G indoor box cameras as well as 3G outdoor bullet cameras. The indoor box cameras will feature VGA resolution, H.264, D/N etc… whereas the new 3G capabilities will help eliminate cables and simplify camera relocation.

The outdoor bullet cameras with their 3G capabilities can be easily installed in locations where network cabling is difficult, expensive or invasive or in areas where WiFi signals are non-existent like beaches, temporary venues or old buildings. 3G capability will make this camera even better along with its VGA, H.264, D/N capabilities.

Wireless cameras are popular in the security camera market these days, and 3G looks to take all the convenience of a wireless camera and increase it tenfold. The ability to not have to worry about wireless routers or running expensive cabling is a reward all in itself.

The new cameras, which come to us as 3 and 5 megapixel MegaView cameras, are enclosed in IP66, environmentally rated and vandal-resistant cylindrical housings with versions available that incorporate built-in IR-corrected lenses.

Like most cameras of this style these two are very easy to install by using an easily-adjustable 3-axis bracket and an external lens adjustment of zoom, focus and iris. These two new additions join Arecont Vision’s 1.3 megapixel and 1080p resolution MegaView cameras.

They capture detailed images, are extremely versatile and their ease of installation can help reduce costs.” Calderon went on to say, “These new cameras expand the MegaView line and offer the first 3 and 5 megapixel IR bullet-style camera solutions in the industry.”

In addition to the cameras’ performance and versatility, new Arecont Vision MegaView cameras provide added functionality. There is a privacy mask feature that enables videos to be blocked in multiple regions in any arbitrary shape. Extended motion detection gives you higher-granularity grid of 1,024 distinct motion detection zones.

The binning function of these two cameras gives you increased sensitivity and better low light performance. Flexible cropping provides you with even more adjustability in image sizes. The new MegaView models are immediately compatible with VMS platforms integrated with the compact H.264 series of cameras.

The 3 megapixel MegaVideo all-in-one camera includes a lot of things such as the AV3125DN H.264 day/night MegaView IP camera and the AV3125IR with IR illuminating ring. The 5 megapixel camera includes the AV5125DN H.264 day/night MegaView IP camera as well as the AV5125IR  which includes an IR LED option.

These two cameras join the MegaVideo 1.3 megapixel AV1325DN H.264 day/night MegaView IP camera, the AV1325IR version that has an IR illuminator ring option, the and the MegaView 1080p HD AV2825DN H.264 day/night IP camera and the AV2825IR with IR illumination.
