Vicon adds 2.0 megapixel cameras with H.264 to I-ONYX line

Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of integrated IP video surveillance and access control systems, introduces the MP980 series of I-ONYX fixed network cameras.

These day/night 2.0 megapixel cameras are offered in three models: indoor dome, outdoor dome and box form. All models support H.264 compression, as well as offering MPEG-4 and M-JPEG compatibility. Users can receive multiple streams simultaneously in different resolutions, frame rates and image qualities for viewing on different platforms.

A removable IR-cut filter and autoiris control allows the cameras to deliver clear images 24 hours a day at lighting levels as low as 0.003 Lux (@20 IRE). Power over Ethernet eliminates the need for power cables and makes installation easy and cost-effective. The cameras offer seamless integration with the ViconNet video management system and conform to the ONVIF global standard, making them compatible with other network video products.

The MP980 series will be available in the second quarter of 2010. Visit for more information.
