New VCC-HD4000 redefines image quality And IP performance

Las Vegas , Nevada (April 2, 2008) – SANYO Security Systems, a division of SANYO Fisher Company, is demonstrating a new High Definition (HD) Megapixel IP Video Surveillance camera with H.264 compression here at ISC West 2008. The new VCC-HD4000 features a 4 megapixel image sensor that delivers full HD image quality (1080p). The introduction establishes a new benchmark in imaging performance for professional video surveillance from SANYO.

"The combination of true 1080p HD megapixel imaging and H.264 compression mark the beginning of a new era in networked video surveillance systems," said Frank Abram, Vice President and General Manager, SANYO Security Products Division. "The vast improvement in image performance and bandwidth efficiency provided by H.264 compression can effectively reduce the number of cameras needed for large scale coverage while increasing system throughput. This is a win-win development for security professionals relative to improving security and cost-efficiency. It's the latest example of how SANYO lets you ‘go to the horizon'.”

The VCC-HD4000 delivers 1080p HD image quality via its 4 megapixel image sensor. Image quality is further enhanced through the unit's built-in all glass 10x HD Auto Focus zoom lens. Key features include: HDMI and network interface outputs along with a standard BNC output; dual CODEC compression (H.264 up to 1920 x 1080p video and JPEG up to 2288 x 1712 still images); face detection; an embedded web server; Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability; and a 10/100 Base-T network interface.

Additional features include a true Day/Night cut filter, dual alarm inputs, and a USB terminal and SD card slot for local recording and archiving.

“We believe this to be the most advanced HD megapixel IP camera available for professional security applications,” said Mr. Abram. “It combines the best imaging performance and features with the most advanced networking and processing technologies available.”
