Vumii Introduces New Accuracii Long-Range Thermal Surveillance Cameras

Vumii Imaging Incorporated, which specializes in thermal and near-infrared security cameras, has just announced its newest line of cameras, the Accuracii Long Range Video Surveillance System family of cameras. This new camera line combines long-range continuous-zoom thermal and color video channels on a 360 degree pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) positioner, making them perfect for 24/7 surveillance.

This new camera line from Vumii is also fully configurable and comes with several different thermal options including three cooled cameras as well as a continuous-zoom uncooled thermal camera in addition to high definition or standard definition color choices with a wide range of lens options.

These cameras also incorporate industry standard communication protocols as well as easy installation and integration, which allows Vumii to provide these cameras to government organizations, seaports, airports, power utility plants and commercial properties, offering these places a versatile and economical solution that is capable of remote observation and surveillance at distances of up to 12 miles away in either day or night settings.

According to Vumii CEO Randall Foster, "This latest platform is based on more than 30 years of experience and innovation and utilizes our uniquely engineered components for maximum image quality, visual details, situational awareness, user friendliness and 24/7 threat assessment. These new camera systems further enhance our expanding line of surveillance products by delivering long-range day and night continuous-zoom performance, high thermal sensitivity and brilliant daytime color images while withstanding harsh outdoor conditions."

Accuracii is currently available with MWIR 640x512 cooled 15u detectors and three high quality zoom lens options. Aside from that, you can also opt for an innovative LWIR 640x480 uncooled 17u detector coupled with a 25-225mm continuous zoom lens. The LWIR thermal camera provides you with a drastically lower total cost of ownership, however, by eliminating the need to have scheduled maintenance compared to a cooled camera.

Short-throw projectors only require half the projection distance of traditional projectors. The projector can be placed just a foot or so from the screen. This is nice because it keeps the projector and screen near each other instead of having a long throw projector that people can accidentally block.

TKH Announces New Pressurized Siqura PTZ Dome Camera Line

Siqura logoTKH recently announced the release of its new advanced Siqura PTZ dome camera line, a camera line that is capable of withstanding harsh environments. The new Siqura camera line utilizes a pressurized dome housing, ensuring airtight protection against excessive moisture, dirt and pollution.

The added protection offered by the pressurized housing makes the new Siqura line perfect for situations like seaports or highway tunnels, areas where corrosive elements wreak havoc on traditional security camera systems, severely affecting performance and causing unnecessary safety and security risks.

The Siqura pressurized PTZ dome cameras also have IP67 Ingress Protection rating while the housing is constructed of materials designed to withstand intense levels of solar heat. The pressurizing of the housing, primarily with inert nitrogen gas, prevents moisture, pollution and dust from damaging the actual camera.

These new cameras also include analog and IP options as well. These cameras are capable of making precision and expediency a priority thanks to their 400° per second preset positioning capabilities, 26x or 35x auto-focus zoom lens and 12x digital zoom. In addition to that, these cameras also feature a day/night IR-cut filter and backlight compensation standard for use in any type of lighting situations. The wide dynamic range functionality also ensures excellent video quality, even in the most difficult circumstances.

Each pressurized Siqura PTZ dome camera is also capable of quad-streaming, supporting dual H.264 streams as well as two highly configurable MPEG-2, MPEG-4 or MJPEG encoders. This type of flexibility makes it easy for these cameras to offer high-quality video while simultaneously streaming network performance. If that wasn't enough, these cameras also facilitate a wide range of migration paths within IP networks.
