Panasonic Security Systems launches a new line of LCD displays to include the PLCD15VA 15-inch, PLCD17VA 17-inch and PLCD19VA 19-inch with audio. The units are available with a wide range of optional mounting brackets and are VESA compatible to accommodate any viewing environment. The units feature analog, BNC loop through, S-VHS and VGA inputs to accommodate virtually any video source. The VGA inputs are scalable and auto-sensing up to 1280 x 1040 SXVGA. The multi-input capability of the units allows video and VGA images to be viewed simultaneously in the picture-in-picture (PIP) mode. This feature is ideal when used with Panasonic's WJ-HD300 Series DVRs since it allows operators to simultaneously view video images and set-up/control menus.
In addition to overscan and underscan, the units also provide a 1-1 viewing mode with a full-imaging capability to assure that images are viewed in their entirety. Additional features include auto-centering which aids in the viewing of VGA images, simple icon-driven menus, and adjustable color temperature to adjust for various lighting conditions. Versatile mounting options are also available. For more information, visit www. panasonic.com/security.
Enclosures for Residential Structured Wiring Systems
ICC announces three new innovative enclosure sizes: 14", 21", and 28", for residential structured wiring systems. ICC's new 14", 21", and 28" distribution centers allow internal modules to be mounted vertically or horizontally, facilitating easier layout and wiring of the system, while providing for optimum cable management. Its integrated snap-in module system enables users to quickly insert or move the internal modules. The enclosures' design enables them to hold a higher number of modules than traditional ones. They have ample knockouts for routing cables from the top or the bottom of the enclosure and come with one or two standard NEMA electrical box knockouts to provide power distribution within the enclosure. Their all steel construction and glossy white finish and reversible door give them a clean finished appearance. For more information, visit www.icc.com.
High-Resolution Color Camera
By utilizing Digital Pixel System (DPS) technology, the EverFocus EQ600WDII dramatically improves the performance of surveillance camera in extreme lighting conditions. Where traditional CCD cameras have difficulty processing images in strong backlighting, the EverFocus EQ600 WDII processes each pixel independently, correcting for the variations and providing the best possible image under the lighting conditions.
