Vicon introduces new I-ONYX IP camera dome

Hauppauge, NY, March 26, 2009: Vicon Industries, a leading designer and producer of video surveillance systems, announced today that it will introduce the VND-970IP camera dome, a cost-effective IP dome that delivers progressive scan VGA resolution, at the ISC West International Security Exhibition next week in Las Vegas. The camera is intended to provide an affordable IP option for indoor installations requiring many cameras to provide blanket coverage, such as within retail properties and airports. The open platform VND-970IP can be remotely managed and controlled from any ViconNet video management station running software version 5.6 or later.

The camera features an integral 3.3-12 mm varifocal lens and delivers a sharp image with accurate color rendition. Multi-stream support allows the video to be viewed and recorded at different frame rates, with a maximum rate of 30 fps. The VND-970IP offers a complete set of video adjustment controls, support for privacy masks and the ability to view video as a flipped or mirrored image. Power is provided either by PoE or via a 12 VDC input.

“As our customers’ preference for IP systems continues to grow, we are pleased to offer camera options like the new VND-970IP that deliver both the performance and convenience of an IP camera but without a premium price,” said Margie Gurwin, Vicon’s Director of Marketing.

Cameras will begin shipping in late spring, 2009. Visit for more information on Vicon’s full line of products, including the I-ONYX line of IP cameras.
