Germantown, Md. – March 21, 2011 — Optelecom-NKF Inc., manufacturer of advanced Siqura and Optelecom video surveillance solutions and a member of TKH Group, today announced its intention to participate in the ISC West 2011 trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, from April 6th through the 8th.
Complete video security and surveillance solutions
With over 35 years of experience, Optelecom-NKF offers global solutions for the video security and surveillance markets. At ISC West 2011, Optelecom-NKF will show how its IP video systems provide complete, proven, and customized solutions for diverse video security and surveillance applications.
A complete Siqura solution at a glance
To show how straightforward a complete TKH security system can be, Optelecom-NKF will demonstrate a total solution at its booth (Booth 3086). Siqura cameras and codecs will be configured to the high-tech intelligent IP video management system (VMS) from TKH Group member, VDG. Siqura IP and analog fixed and PTZ cameras as well as Siqura codecs use dedicated DSPs to implement analytics locally on unprocessed images. This ensures the best results from analysis software while streamlining bandwidth consumption. VDG’s VMS specializes in facilitating the control of and access to devices that compress and process information at the edge of the network.
“At Optelecom-NKF, we create innovative and reliable video security and surveillance solutions according to our customers’ diverse needs,” explains Steven J. Williams, Optelecom-NKF’s Director of Critical Infrastructure in the Americas. “Our vast technology offering enables us to provide complete and customizable integrated video solutions. We work closely with customers to design and deploy the optimal system for their unique current and future needs. This is something that really sets us apart. We are eager to show attendees at ISC West 2011 just how flexible we are and how hassle-free life can be when you’re working with Siqura surveillance solutions and TKH security solutions.”
The first direct to fiber IP PTZ camera
Due to the ubiquitous nature and the advantages of fiber optic networks, as well as the current migration from analog to IP streaming, Optelecom-NKF is now offering its Siqura IP PTZ dome cameras with a fiber optic connector option. This feature simplifies both the setup and maintenance of camera installations where a fiber network is utilized to overcome long distance limitations.
Pressurized PTZ dome for extreme conditions
Optelecom-NKF is currently developing pressurized IP and analog PTZ dome cameras to offer a robust solution for the most taxing situations. It is capable of withstanding intense levels of solar heat (945VA UV protection) and providing high-quality video in environments with extreme levels of moisture, dirt, or pollution (IP67 Ingress Protection). This pressurized dome camera will be commercially available in the spring of 2011.
Explosion-proof fixed and PTZ dome cameras
The Siqura fixed and PTZ analog and IP cameras will soon be available with ATEX certified explosion-proof housing covers. These housings are essential for the chemical and petro-chemical industries.
High-definition, ONVIF-compliant cameras
Optelecom-NKF will also show its high-definition, ONVIF-compliant camera line, a collection of six cameras in providing HD (720p) and Full HD (1080p) resolution images in H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG.
Video content analysis for system and surveillance
Optelecom-NKF will put its Camera Health Check video content analysis (VCA) application on display. This program is integrated into the Siqura S-64 E video server and checks the status or well-being of the attached cameras by monitoring the cameras’ position and image quality. When something is amiss, the application triggers an alarm to promptly alert operators, thereby guaranteeing quality video material while at the same time reducing unnecessary maintenance costs.
Largest selection of fiber optic solutions
The Optelecom fiber line is one of the largest assortments of fiber optic equipment in the world. Since Optelecom-NKF is determined to ensure optimal performance whenever and wherever it’s needed, all of the Optelecom fiber products are field-hardened to withstand the harshest conditions and most extreme temperatures. Optelecom fiber products also support fiber to IP transitions, making it easy to use them in hybrid networks.

While this array of examples demonstrates Optelecom-NKF’s ability to fulfill the needs both of its customers as well as the industry, it also shows how Siqura solutions are essentially dynamic and can be tailored to any video networking need. Consequently, the Optelecom-NKF booth (Booth 3086) may prove to be the best place for an open and lively conversation about how best to customize a video surveillance network for a specific situation.
