New HCX Megapixel Cameras From Honeywell

Product Profile

The Honeywell HCX Series of megapixel cameras provides network surveillance for high-resolution object recognition, indoors or out, beyond standard analog camera capabilities and offers installation and equipment cost savings. 

When object recognition is needed over a vast field of view, one megapixel camera can often perform at the same level as standard analog cameras with the quality of image facilitating significantly improved forensic analysis. 

Additionally, IP connectivity lets users view and control cameras from virtually anywhere and analog video output lets users quickly customize the camera set-up and easily send snapshots or video clips to e-mail or FTP addresses.

The HCX Series consists of three box style cameras:

  • HCX13M - 1.3 megapixels
  • HCX3 - 3.1 megapixels
  • HCX5D - 5.0 megapixel True Day/Night functionality 

Set-up is quick and easy and can be customised through a Web client or from an NVR multi-zone motion detection to trigger motion-based video streaming and privacy zones for blocking portions of the scene that are not to be recorded. An analog output facilitates set-up of zoom and focus of the lens using spot monitors and allows easy integration with public view monitors. Choose between 12 VDC/24 VAC power input or PoE 802.3 af for additional installation flexibility. 

Market opportunities 

The HCX Series provides optimum performance for both indoor and outdoor applications requiring higher resolution over a larger field of view than is available from a high-resolution analog camera. 

Retail and banking industries greatly benefit from using megapixel cameras. When fraud is suspected or transactions are being audited, the operator can position the camera to view the complete till transaction process and zoom in to capture the ‘customer's' identifying features. Other applications include multi-lane carriageways, wide lobbies, gated entrances and loading bays.
