Dedicated Micros Camvu Mini-Dome Camera Range Spotlighted At IFSEC 2010

Product Profile

Dedicated Micros - part of AD Group - has significantly strengthened its IP dome camera portfolio with the launch at IFSEC 2010 of its CamVu Mini-Dome range. The two key models, now available in the range, are the CamVu HyperDome and the CamVu Day/Night Mini-Dome which are suitable for deployment both indoors and outdoors.

Looking at the CamVu HyperDome, its Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) sensor means that this Mini-Dome is perfectly suited to difficult lighting conditions, such as those found in reception/entrance areas, correctly exposing shadows and highlights and allowing detail to be seen even when backlit. Turning to the CamVu Day/Night Mini-Dome, this model combines sensitivity to IR (Infra Red) light at night with the ability to deliver true colour rendition during day light hours.

Both of the CamVu Mini-Domes have been designed from the start to be vandal resistant which means that they are perfectly suited to installations where there is a requirement to withstand deliberate or accidental damage. Built from an impact resistant die cast aluminum body, with a tough polycarbonate bubble (rated to IP66), the CamVu Mini-Domes are also well equipped to cope with the challenges of harsh environmental conditions such as dust and water spray.

The CamVu Mini-Dome models are compatible with a wide range of Dedicated Micros (and AD Group) DVRs and Video Servers including: the DV-IP ServerDV-IP HDDV-IP RTHighVu ExcelDS2BX2SD Advanced and the latest generation of TransVu.

One of the most revolutionary features of the new CamVu Mini-Domes is the fact that they are some of the first Dedicated Micros' products to feature an Integrated Camera Recording (ICR) capability. Essentially the ICR concept, which Dedicated Micros is pioneering, combines local recording - through an integrated Micro SD expansion port - with a full enterprise video server all within the camera. This unlocks the option to record camera footage at the unit as well as any associated DVR or Video Server. The attraction of this approach is that, once installed, the CamVu Mini-Domes can offer fail safe decentralised recording and video management, so reducing 24/7 dependency on high bandwidth network infrastructure and the associated maintenance costs.

The CamVu Mini-Domes also benefit from the adoption of a, specifically tailored, Video Signal Processor (ViSP) from Dedicated Micros' sister company ChipWrights. The power of the ViSP, selected for the Mini-Domes, means that it is possible to transmit multiple simultaneous MPEG-4 and/or JPEG images to any number of associated NetVu Connected devices for viewing and recording. A key advantage is that each stream can be tailored to suit the viewer's available bandwidth.

Additionally, both of the CamVu Mini-Domes are Analytics Capable, which means, in practice, that there is the potential for them to host the latest Dedicated Micros' analytics solutions, whether that be Object Left/Removed or Detection Tripwire.

Said Pauline Norstrom, Director of Worldwide Marketing at Dedicated Micros: "The CamVu HyperDome and the CamVu Day/Night Mini-Dome are high specification solutions which readily integrate a number of market leading features, such as Integrated Camera Recording (ICR), to unlock key operational benefits on the sites where they are likely to be deployed."
