American Dynamics launches Illustra 400 Series IP cameras

Westford, MA - American Dynamics, part of Tyco Security Products, has announced its new Illustra 400 Series of IP cameras, a unique product offering that bridges the gap between standard resolution and megapixel resolution. This new series of IP cameras, which offers H.264 compression at 30 fps, 896 x 720 pixel resolution and dynamic bandwidth management, is the first to come to market under the new Illustra brand.

With 2/3 megapixel resolution, the Illustra 400 cameras stand alone in providing a new alternative for customers looking for enhanced resolution over standard 480 x 640 pixel resolution but who are not ready to make the jump to megapixel cameras. "Many customers are looking for improvements over standard resolution, but cannot afford the cost of storage," stated Steve Carney, senior product manager for IP cameras. "This series of cameras represents the best alternative for customers requiring higher resolution, without breaking the bank with storage."

Key features of the Illustra 400 include wide dynamic range, leading low light quality (0.2/0.01 lux), advanced onboard storage up to 32 GB, PoE driven IR illuminators, remote management, and a web-based interface translated into 16 languages, delivering superior quality and versatility.

"The Illustra 400 cameras coupled with our recent launch of the victor unified video management system and VideoEdge NVR v4.0, offers our customers unparalleled new alternatives in IP with the backing of the trusted American Dynamics brand they have relied on for years," stated Carney. "We are very pleased to bring the first of many Illustra IP cameras to the market."

The 400 series come in a wide breadth of form factors from indoor mini-dome, outdoor mini-dome, bullet and box models, in white, black and silver. The Illustra series is compatible with VideoEdge NVR v4.0 and will soon be supported on all leading NVR
