Bosch’s New IP 200 Series Cameras

Posted in Low Cost with tags , , , , , on September 30, 2011 by zackduncan

Bosch IP 200 SeriesBosch has just released its newest Advantage line of analog and IP CCTV cameras, designed to boost the company’s already high quality systems to small businesses. This new, affordable range of CCTV systems comes fully equipped with features that are perfectly suited to smaller installations but that also deliver the same high quality and high reliability that high-end Bosch systems are already known for.

This new series, known as the IP 200 Series, includes a plethora of CCTV systems that are suitable for a wide range of applications. A new 4-camera setup, for example, could be made up of a fixed-body, dome and IR indoor camera combined with an outdoor IR bullet camera.

In addition to that, advanced features include progressive scan to ensure sharp images of moving objects and all cameras are very easy to set up. Power over Ethernet (PoE) also enables single cable functionality for both the camera’s power and video saving you some time and money with installation.

Almost all of the IP 200 Series cameras come with a local SD card slot for video storage, except for the IP 200 series bullet camera. The bullet camera is designed for rough, outdoor use and is also water-resistant. These cameras also come with integrated active infrared technology which ensures 24/7 video surveillance in both daylight and complete darkness.

Just like Bosch’s other Advantage line products, the IP 200 Series is perfect for situations where a professional security camera that has great features and an affordable price is essential, like an office, small business, retail store, gas station, parking lot, daycare or even your very own home.

Interlogix Debuts New TruVision IP Camera Line

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 21, 2011 by zackduncan

InterlogixInterlogix has just expanded its video surveillance line to include IP and Megapixel cameras, both of which are PSIA and ONVIF compatible. This comes as part of a continuing effort by Interlogix to provide a more robust IP solution to its customers. Interlogix offers these latest additions that help make a full line of network recorders, analog and network cameras as well as transmission equipment.

These new cameras are TruVision IP open-standards cameras that offer a plethora of resolutions, including VGA, 2.0, 3.0 and 5.0 Megapixel models, all of which are capable of transmitting 1080p HD resolution in real-time. In addition to that, this complete line of cameras is now available in three consistent form factors that come with both indoor and outdoor vandal-proof housings.

According to Sales Leader of Video and Transmission at Interlogix Kostas Mellos, “Interlogix is focused on growing our IP expertise and these open-standards cameras can now offer customers a variety of options for their network installations. With this increased investment in video products, we are providing more IP-centric solutions that meet industry standards and can be integrated with third-party offerings.”

Fifteen of the seventeen new cameras support a local SD card in order to provide up to 32GB of onboard storage. This is not only extremely useful but also nearly double the amount of storage found on most cameras these days. The extra storage also provides a level of network redundancy in case of a connection failure.

You can install these cameras for standalone, small or even temporary installations where a network connection to an NVR or VMS isn’t really an option due to the fact that the new cameras allow the video to be stored locally on the camera itself. In addition to that, these new cameras also support Power over Ethernet (PoE).
