Infinova launches new megapixel camera

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ – December 22, 2009 – Infinova today announced its new V6201 Series of 1.3 megapixel fixed color cameras. With its real-time image collecting system, the new Series offers excellent image quality at high frame rates. A high S/N (signal to noise) ratio makes it easy to discern image details. The V6201 Series provides integrators with high resolution fixed color cameras for challenging applications, including shopping mall interiors, transportation hub concourses, warehouses, hotel lobbies and other demanding inside environments.

“The V6201 Series cameras are members of Infinova’s second generation family of IP and megapixel cameras that are helping integrators move their customers to IP in a cost-managed manner,” attests Mark S. Wilson, Infinova vice president, marketing. “They can be an integral part of a system that extends the life of installed analog systems while adding the advanced resolution and coverage of megapixel camera technology.”

Each V6201 Series megapixel camera is available with an MPEG-4 and MJPEG embedded dual video encoding system, offering video compression with image resolution up to 1280 x 960 at 20 frames per second (fps). With its day/night function, the fixed camera can automatically switch from color mode to black and white in very low light environments, making it a solid solution for 24/7 surveillance applications observing perimeters, parking lots, lobbies and other high-incident locales. A privacy mask can be defined to prevent users from viewing objectionable areas.

The new fixed 1.3 megapixel cameras also feature programmable motion detection and an SD (Secure Digital) card for on-camera information storage. The SD card stores the current image if any alarm occurs, ensuring high security with a record of any incident, even if communications are cut. Using Infinova V2216 Network Video Management software, users can later retrieve their video.

To make installation easier for integrators, V6201 cameras feature both IP and analog outputs. During installation or maintenance, integrators can attach a portable test monitor to facilitate easy and fast focusing. The dual-output cameras let the user record on both NVRs and DVRs, even at the same time if wanted.

Besides being compatible with Infinova’s V2216 Network Video Management software, the V6201 Series of cameras also easily integrate with the leading brands of network video management software.

The V6201 Series cameras become available in January, 2010. Complete details are at
