Avigilon dome camera launched

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

Avigilon have announced a new range of vandal-resistant megapixel dome cameras.

These new Avigilon HD colour/mono domes will be available in 1, 2, 3 and 5 mpix camera models as per their current HD body camera range.

There will also be a range of variants with built-in IR LEDs for night-time illumination.

We’re anticipating that these new products will deliver a great new value proposition; as VR domes they include the camera, lens and outdoor housing all in a single easy-to-install, POE-enabled, IP camera package.

Just as soon as the full information and datasheets become available we’ll add these fantastic new products into our IP CCTV shop.

Vandal Resistant CCTV cameras not Vandal Proof

Vandal resistant CCTV we can deliver.

Vandal proof is just a promise too far – no sensible CCTV manufacturer or installer would ever offer “vandal-proof” products.

There is no end to the amount of force that might potentially be used.

Some manufacturers will state their claim e.g. “proven to withstand a blow from a 10lb sledge hammer”.

I recall, when vandal-resistant dome cameras first became available (some years ago) one manufacturer had a rig on their exhibition stand that allowed you to lift and drop a hinged sledge hammer repeatedly onto their dome camera’s bubble!

Another manufacturer (or was it the same manufacturer?) made a video of a truck driving over their camera to show that it could survive this extreme treatment.

However, I once attended a client’s site after a vandal had struck a camera mounted to the ceiling of a subway with a five foot concrete fence post – it did not survive that!

The ultimate in this particular game is “ballistically tested” – as you can see from above, nobody will ever claim that they have manufactured a bullet-proof camera!

Camera, lens and outdoor weatherproof camera housing all in the one assembly.

In the case of this ACTi 7411 IP camera it’s also a vandal-resistant housing – ideal for those applications where you may have some fear of unwanted interference with the camera (indoors or out).

And, it’s a 1.3 megapixel camera, delivering over three times the image resolution of a traditional analogue camera.

And, it’s supplied with a vari-focal lens that allows you to adjust the field of view to suit the scene you want to cover.

And, it’s POE enabled, for an easy installation with video and power via a single Cat5 cable connection to your nearest network point.

And, ACTi supply their NVR Professional video recording software for up to 64 cameras free-of-charge in the box with each camera.
