Brett Gallen and the team at iKey Security have been awarded the security upgrade work to be completed in Puddle Duck Ln, Erina. The scope of works was to install IP CCTV cameras over a wireless link to the clients office in their house as well as a video intercom at the main gate which was approx 300m away from the clients house. Brett worked on the wireless link using the latest Ubiquiti antennas and receivers to ensure the very best in wireless video transmission. Brett also recommended the client use the Panasonic Intercom to guarantee the operation of the video feed from the clients entry gate to the house would not falter. Read More…
Introducing Samsung’s new Full HD camera range
Samsung has introduced a new range of ONVIF compliant 3 megapixel cameras capable of displaying Full HD 1080p resolution to deliver outstanding evidence grade images.
The three cameras in the range, the SNB-7000 camera, the SND-7080(F) internal dome (with flush-mount option) and the SNV-7080 weatherproof vandal resistant dome, all incorporate Samsung Techwin's WiseNet2 DSP chipset which has been specifically designed to provide users with maximum benefit from the latest megapixel and high definition technology and includes Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) operation for use in challenging lighting conditions.
Capable of displaying multiple resolutions from CIF (352 x 288) through to 16:9 format 1080p Full HD (1920 x 1080p) and up to full 3 megapixel (2048 x 1536), all three models support dual-streaming of video using H.264 and MJPEG compression. The cameras can therefore be simultaneously used for real-time monitoring, mobile monitoring, high quality or high-efficiency recording, SD memory recording and/or E-mail notification purposes.
In addition, Samsung's Smart Codec compression technology allows specific areas of interest within a scene to be captured at a higher resolution than the rest. This means that areas such as doorways, human faces, or windows are transmitted or recorded at full resolution, whilst other areas within the scene are reduced to save file sizes and put the user firmly in control of bandwidth management.
Four point polygonal privacy zones, bi-directional audio support and PoE (Power over Ethernet) are just a few of the impressive features built into all three models whilst lens focusing can be controlled via the network using the cameras' manual and one-shot auto focus function incorporated into the SND-7080(F) and SNV-7080.
Other key features include:
- Progressive scan technology, which provides sharper edges on moving subjects and vehicles in order to enhance image quality. It is most noticeable on paused images, providing picture-perfect stills of, for example, number plates without any blurring.
- Wide Dynamic Range for applications where there are strong contrasts between light and dark areas, such as shop entrances with glass entrance doors, Samsung's latest WDR technology adjusts both the bright areas and dark shadows much more effectively to provide a well-balanced image across the entire scene.
- Third generation Samsung Super Noise Reduction technology, which not only allows a colour image to be captured in much lower lighting conditions than traditionally possible, but it also eliminates image noise in low light conditions without creating blur or ghosting. This has a dramatic effect on reducing bandwidth requirements when networking and can save up to 70% recording space on the recording device.
- Fully compatible with Samsung's licence-free NET-i viewer software, which allows remote viewing, control and administration of single or multiple site security systems via a PC anywhere in the world. What's more, with the iPOLiS iPhone and Android applications, users are able to access their systems on the move.
The SND-7080 and SNV-7080 are offered with an extensive range of accessories and brackets to provide a choice of wall, pole, parapet, pendant, corner and in-ceiling mounts.
