First Thermal Imaging Surveillance Camera Debuts in Israel

Opgal Optronics EyeSecIsrael has some interesting news for the security camera industry. Over in Israel a continuous zoom, thermal-imaging camera, which behaves much like a standard CCTV security camera, has just been launched by Opgal Optronics.

According to Opgal, the EyeSec 15-11mm Continuous Zoom camera is a 24/7 outdoor thermal security camera that is used in the observation and monitoring of sensitive sites. The camera is able to present a clear thermal video and image in total darkness, light fog or even smoke which allows for performance that is unmatched by any average security camera.

According to Vice President of Opgal Security Business Unit Yair M. Sakov, "This unique thermal-imaging camera gives control-room operators the same feel and ease of use as with a standard CCTV -- in other words, continuous zoom auto-focus with thermal capabilities for night vision. In fact, by translating day-imaging capabilities into night vision features, we have redefined the way thermal imaging is perceived."

Sakov went on to say, "In the not so distant past, continuous-zoom capabilities were only available in expensive, cooled thermal cameras. Thanks to Opgal's expertise in this field, customers can now benefit from a very affordable un-cooled camera for optimum night vision for any security application."

The EyeSec is based on Opgal's highly sensitive un-cooled microbolometer engines and offers night and day surveillance. You can also get different optics with a range of focal lengths to fit virtually any need you may have including a long, narrow distance or a short, wide distance.

Traffic Cameras to Go Up in Mangalore, India

traffic security camerasInteresting news out of India has just been released. Bangalore City Police (BCP) are working hard at moving toward having a full traffic management center within 18 months. But that isn't all, Bangalore's counterpart, Mangalore, has also taken its first steps toward this goal by installing surveillance cameras at vantage points across the city, which the Mangalore City Police (MCP) have divided into two tiers.

Praveen Sood, additional commissioner of police (traffic), told STOI that Mangalore City Police will be able to soon realize how beneficial surveillance cameras can be. According to Sood, "In Bangalore, response of motorists to surveillance and enforcement cameras is very positive. It is human nature to behave when you know that you are being watched and this has contributed to a 50% improvement in behavior of motorists in the capital."

Acknowledging this truth, Seemanth Kumar Singh, Chief of Police for the Mangalore City Police, said that Godrej Security Solutions has installed the cameras in Mangalore. According to Singh, "This wireless based system will enable us to get a real time sense of traffic movement and traffic related congestion in the city once the system is operational. The feed from the surveillance cameras can also be used from a crime point of view as well."

It seems like everybody and their mother are installing security cameras for traffic or other police reasons. Soon the entire world will be under the watchful eye of a security camera. I can't wait for the robots to start taking over too.
