VideoIQ introduces the iCVR dome camera line

BEDFORD, Mass., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- VideoIQ, the leader in video surveillance innovation, announced the availability of a family of iCVR dome cameras. iCVR dome cameras are the world's only cameras with adaptive analytics, onboard Network Video Recorder (NVR) and an advanced Video Management System (VMS).

VideoIQ iCVR dome cameras build upon the success of VideoIQ's iCVR box cameras and encoders, which have achieved rapid market adoption and industry award recognition. With up to a half terabyte of intelligent, onboard NVR storage within each camera, iCVR dome cameras eliminate the need for expensive centralized storage - reducing deployment costs, system complexity, infrastructure, time and resources.

Additionally, VideoIQ's embedded, adaptive analytics automatically calibrate in minutes, delivering superior real-time threat detection and forensic evidence at no additional cost. Finally, with an advanced, fully integrated VMS, VideoIQ delivers the simplest, most powerful video surveillance system on the market within each iCVR dome camera.

Features of the VideoIQ dome cameras include:

- Zero bandwidth recording. Unlike conventional IP video surveillance systems which have significant bandwidth and storage requirements, VideoIQ iCVR dome cameras store video in up to half a terabyte of onboard storage for months worth of recording, eliminating the need to stream images across a network to a central NVR - reducing network traffic and bandwidth consumption by over 90%. As a result, iCVR dome cameras simplify infrastructure dramatically, and can be easily deployed over existing networks, wireless networks and cellular connections.

- The most advanced video analytics in the industry: iCVR dome cameras' real-time threat detection relies on VideoIQ's award winning adaptive analytics, which self calibrate in minutes, maintain calibration over time, and are capable of uniquely distinguishing people, vehicles and boats from other objects, animals and scene movement. The camera issues alarms only when there is a true threat, saving time and money by enabling security personnel to focus only on events of high interest.

- Simple setup and operation. iCVR dome cameras significantly reduce installation time and resources. With a fully integrated, onboard NVR and an advanced VMS, iCVR cameras eliminate the need for centralized 3rd party software and hardware and facilities infrastructure. Additionally, VideoIQ's embedded analytics automatically calibrate, getting smarter with each object detected and further reducing installation time and resources.
