Vicon announces performance upgrade for V700 Series cameras

Hauppauge, NY: (May 10, 2010) - Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of integrated IP video surveillance and access control systems, has introduced a superior performing new camera module within its low-cost line of 4.5" fixed camera domes. The cameras, available in indoor and outdoor housings with color, day/night, and IR camera modules, now offer several new features and improved performance specifications.

All cameras now provide digital noise reduction, improving image quality in low-light and providing a better compression ratio that decreases storage requirements. The cameras also offer better dynamic range and 560 TVL resolution. A joystick-controlled, on-screen menu system replaces the previous DIP switches and allows users to customize camera performance based on a wide range of variables. New privacy masking capabilities allow users to mask out selected regions of the video.

Separate from the above mentioned models, a new WDR version of the V700 Series features an improved Pixim camera module that provides correction for color roll when capturing video under fluorescent lighting, as well as an optional high-resolution mode that is controlled through the menu system. The Pixim module makes use of patented, industry-leading Digital Pixel System® technology that provides pixel-by-pixel analysis and processing for the clearest image in challenging light conditions.

The V700 Series cameras replace the VC-700 Series of cameras. Models featuring a 3.3-12mm lens are available immediately. A new, indoor day/night model as well as a 9-22mm WDR model will be available later this year.
