Optelecom-NKF debuts ONVIF-compliant HD IP cameras

Germantown, Md. – September 17, 2010 — Optelecom-NKF, Inc., manufacturer of Siqura advanced video surveillance solutions, today announced the release of its first ONVIF-compliant high-definition (HD) IP cameras, the Siqura 6x series, with HD (720p) and Full HD (1080p) versions.

Optelecom-NKF is a contributing member and strong supporter of the ONVIF initiative, a leading effort in creating industry-wide standards for IP-based physical security devices. The ONVIF movement has already made excellent achievements in helping companies work together to create open platforms for IP video networking. The development of these ONVIF-compliant HD cameras is just another step towards ensuring that Siqura surveillance solutions offer the best system for even the most demanding surveillance situations.

The traditional box-style BC6x cameras and the vandal-proof fixed-dome FD6x cameras provide HD resolution images in H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG. With the option to configure multiple combinations of resolution and frame rate, it is possible to satisfy a variety of different live-viewing and recording scenarios, making these cameras ideal for large professional installations where high resolutions and quality images are needed.

The Siqura 6x cameras offer true day/night and backlight compensation as standard features, as well as wide dynamic range (WDR) functionality in some models, to ensure quality images in difficult lighting conditions. Since surveillance solutions need to be flexible when it comes to installation, these new cameras can be powered from AC, DC, or Power over Ethernet (PoE) power sources. Through an intuitive and straightforward Web interface, users can configure features such as motion detection and privacy masks to ensure the security of the surveillance system.

The Siqura 6x cameras are part of the Siqura product line, an extensive collection of video surveillance equipment offering complete solutions and reputed for quality and reliability.
