NAV announces new surveillance solutions offerings

Brick, NJ (November 2, 2010) – North American Video (NAV), the market leader in designing and delivering state of the art, integrated video surveillance and security solutions, is now offering Oncam IP, 5-megapixel and analog, 3-megapixel 360° cameras to its valued clients. The cameras, with award-winning Grandeye technology, enable 12-bit 5- and 3-megapixel color and image processing along with sophisticated video analytics.

"NAV has a history of offering leading edge technology as an integral part of our video surveillance and security solutions, and the Oncam IP and analog 360° cameras offer technologically advanced functionality and performance," said Daniel Jackson, Systems Specialist, North American Video. "They’re strong additions to our product line and maps well to our commitment of adding value to our integrated solutions."

Oncam Global’s cameras are designed with several unique features that are essential for 360° persistent situational awareness, including on-board camera generation of multiple, independent perspective-corrected virtual camera views (up to four), each of which can be controlled manually or by using the in-camera video analytics. The cameras also feature support for electronic pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) functionality throughout the entire 360° field of view during live viewing or playback.

Complete scenes can be viewed in panoramic or multi-view screen mode. The latter is supported by the camera and may be composited at the client end in either the NVR or on a PC running a standard Web browser. All Oncam 360° cameras generate ultra-high-resolution images that are captured using high-performance fisheye lenses.

The IP 360° camera series is available in surface-mount, conceal-mounting and minidome designs. The analog 360° camera can be paired with the Oncam Halocorder for high-resolution 360° analog recording. All models are ideal for gaming, retail, warehousing and military applications, among others. They are capable of generating intrusion alerts upon motion detection and other alarm events, and of notifying call centers, owners and other nominated parties via email and/or ftp, complete with images of the event.

According to Mr. Jackson, Oncam Global, through its Grandeye technology arm, is richly populated with intellectual property, including several patents related to 360° image capture. "Their leadership position in moving 360° situational awareness surveillance to mainstream applications is what first attracted us," he said. "These next-generation cameras definitely warrant the phrase 'paradigm-shifting' technology."
