LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 14, 2007 â€“ Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced the new ACUIXâ„¢ series of high performance pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) speed dome cameras that feature multiple housing configurations and five integrated high-resolution, auto-focus camera/optic systems. The series was created to consolidate the Honeywell PTZ dome camera lineup to a single platform, which will support both analog and digital video transmissions.
ACUIX works seamlessly with all current and future Honeywell video and surveillance products. The series incorporates Honeywellâ€™s proprietary Intellibusâ„¢ protocol for high-speed performance and effortless upgrades. Intellibus allows camera settings such as labels, presets, tours, and privacy zones to be uploaded to a new camera/optics package if required, affording the ultimate protection of the dome's settings. Because Intellibus allows users to remotely upload firmware to a single dome - or an unlimited number of user-selected domes - without interrupted use of the camera, ACUIX offers major time savings for dealers and end users.
"ACUIX incorporates innovative features such as remote storage of camera data and remote firmware upgrades. This allows installers to perform setup and maintenance from their lab benches, which in turn minimizes installation time at the customer site and eliminates complications at the top of a ladder," said Douglas Ringer, global product manager, Honeywell. "Customers and installers alike will appreciate the remarkable performance of ACUIX and its ease of use."
The series includes a True Day/Night model with a 35X zoom featuring Wide Dynamic Range and Electronic Image Stabilization for superior images that overcome unstable mounting and difficult lighting conditions. The ACUIX speed dome cameras provide intelligent vision for any indoor or
ACUIX Dome Cameras outdoor surveillance applications. Its sharp images, high reliability and flexible mounting options make ACUIX ideally suited for casinos, retail stores, schools and campus environments, industrial sites and locations where traffic monitoring is essential.
Honeywell will demonstrate the ACUIX PTZ dome cameras at ISC West 2007. For more information, visit www.honeywellvideo.com/ACUIX.
