The new BX500 HD PTZ Dome Camera from IndigoVision provides customers with a high-resolution camera that is both ONVIF conformant and fully compatible with IndigoVision’s Security Management Solution, SMS4™. The camera, which is equipped with powerful optical zoom, enables customers to install a 1080p HD camera, with audio capability that benefits from the complete IndigoVision solution including its distributed architecture. Cameras can be located anywhere on the network and streamed to many users without the need for a central server. This distributed architecture enables a security system to be expanded easily and eliminates the single point of failure risk of central servers.
Speaking of the camera’s versatility, Juan Salleg, President, EGC COLOMBIA, a major telecom company, said: “The new IndigoVision BX500 HD PTZ Dome provides us with a trusted ONVIF HD camera suitable for use in large outdoor areas where it can zoom in with great precision on specific areas and details. Working alongside IndigoVision’s existing camera range, it also allows us to maximise the benefit of the complete solution.”
With a 20x optical zoom, the BX500 HD PTZ excels in the most challenging indoor and outdoor lighting conditions incorporating an auto mechanical IR filter for true day/night functionality. Designed to meet requirements for use over low bandwidth connections and with dual streaming functionality, it offers the ability to view and record locally in high resolution, as well as using a lower bitrate for remote viewing. User configurable resolution, framerate and bitrate are all part of the camera’s in-built versatility, making for ease of use and adaptability for any network. The BX500 HD PTZ also allows customers to view live and recorded video from the camera within IndigoVision Control Center, SMS4™’s user interface.
The external camera has an IP66 rating for use in outdoor environments and a temperature rating of -30?C to +50?C (-22?F to 122?F). The internal version can operate over PoE, reducing installation time and costs. The BX500 HD PTZ Dome is a further expansion to IndigoVision’s BX camera range, which includes HD Minidomes and an HD Bullet Camera, and works seamlessly with the full IndigoVision IP camera offering and with SMS4™.
