Vicon debuts V960 line of fixed cameras

New cameras available in block, indoor dome, outdoor dome, and bullet housings


Hauppauge, NY: (April 6, 2011) - Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of network video management systems, introduces the new, comprehensive V960 line of fixed cameras that deliver superior resolution, image quality and performance when used as part of any ONVIF-compliant video management system. These true day/night cameras are available in block, indoor dome, outdoor dome and bullet housings with a variety of lens options, and all are offered with resolutions of 1080p, 720p and D1 (2 MP, 1.3 MP and VGA).

A removable IR-cut filter provides superior image quality around the clock, while image quality is further enhanced by use of a P-iris that precisely optimizes the balance between lighting and depth-of-field. The cameras transmit H.264 compression with dual streaming; up to 9 secondary streams may be H.264 or M-JPEG and vary in resolution, frame rate and image quality. Remote focus capabilities, combined with power-over-Ethernet, facilitate easy installation. All models share a common, intuitive web interface for set-up and maintenance.

"With the introduction of the V960 line, Vicon is pleased to offer cost-effective HD cameras that may be used industry-wide, both with Vicon and third-party video management solutions. The ability to remotely adjust the field of view as well as the focus provides measurable cost savings to our installers," said Mark Provinsal, Vicon’s V.P. of Marketing and Product Development.

Cameras will begin shipping in Summer 2011. See them live at ISC West, booth 25069.
