Sony logoSony Electronics’ Security Systems Division has just announced that the company has recently been awarded Frost & Sullivan’s 2012 United States Retail Facility Manager’s Choice Award for Best Brand of Analog Cameras. This is a good honor because these awards recognize companies that demonstrate outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas like leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development.

According to General Manager for Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division Mark Collett, “We are very pleased to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan. While many retailers have started migrating towards IP camera systems, the analog market remains strong. We continue to innovate in both categories, providing affordable analog cameras based on the company’s advanced imaging technology, as well as a line of high-definition IP cameras. We are proud that the retail facility managers across the U.S. recognize that Sony is synonymous with image quality.”

Sony has 40 years of experience in advancing the art and science of image processing, meaning that both the analog and IP camera models from the company produce clearer video at higher frame rates than any other surveillance camera technologies on the market.

In addition to that, Sony is also the first camera manufacturer to create a hybrid camera solution that is capable of simultaneously transmitting both standard-definition analog and high-definition IP images over a single coaxial cable. This allows customers to utilize their investments in analog cabling and control rooms while also implementing a migration to IP.

Frost & Sullivan surveyed facility managers all across the Untied States and asked them which brand of analog surveillance cameras they consider using first, second and third. These numbers were calculated and revealed that Sony was the number one most considered company in the market.

CheckVideo CV135

CheckVideo recently released its CheckVideo High Definition Outdoor Bullet Camera known as the CV135. The CV135 is the first megapixel security camera from the company that packages video analytics technology, DVR, and video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) into a single, complete cloud-based intelligent video surveillance solution.

The CV135 provides full 24/7 video surveillance and sends critical, real-time alerts that users can act on to notify authorities, shorten response time and even stop crimes in progress. Due to the fact that this camera is capable of detecting the presence of people and vehicles, in addition to motion, it dramatically reduces nuisance alarms.

Video alerts can also be sent through the cloud to a central monitoring service, email address, smartphone or secure CheckVideo Web Portal. In addition to that, the CV135 also continuously records video 24/7 while live, recorded or event video can be viewed remotely anytime and anywhere from the CheckVideo Web Portal.

According to CEO of CheckVideo John Estrada, “CV135 brings together CheckVideo’s proven, auto-adapting advanced video analytics that enable a proactive approach to video security and megapixel technology. The powerful combination of technologies within and supporting the camera allows us to further extend our security solutions to provide even stronger support in securing difficult applications like parking lots, utilities and other outdoor locations.”

The CV135 is a 2 megapixel IP 66-rated weatherproof IR bullet camera that comes with an all-in-one power cable that includes the option for Power over Ethernet (PoE). The camera also comes with the CheckVideo Software Service to provide Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) and, once installed, the camera can be configured and managed remotely using the secure CheckVideo Web Portal, which also helps reduce maintenance costs.
