ABUS Security-Center starts operating in the emerging market of HD-SDI technology and will continually build upon extensive product portfolio of HD recorders and cameras during the course of the year. This technology represents the logical development of analog technology – from conventional standard resolution to genuine HD video images.
Starting with a HD-SDI 4-channel recorder as well as a HD-SDI standard camera and a mini-tube camera, other dome and tube cameras, and storage solutions are due to follow throughout the year.
HD-SDI standard and mini-tube camera
HD-SDI cameras from ABUS enable digital video with HD-1080p resolution at full frame rate. Here the data is transmitted uncompressed via conventional coaxial cables. Consequently, one HD-SDI camera is able to take the place of up to five conventional cameras. Compared to 720p (1280 x 720), the 1080p (1920 x 1080) shows twice as many details and even more than four times as much resolution as compared to 4CIF (704 x 576). Specially designed for the outside is the ABUS HD-SDI mini outdoor camera. With its IR-LEDs it stands out with its night vision feature and compact mini-housing.
HD-SDI 4-channel recorder
The first HD-SDI-capable recorder from ABUS features four channels with H.264 codec: this enables real time recordings with HD resolution of 1080p for each connected camera. The installation and operation of HD-SDI components comply with conventional analog surveillance systems: cameras and recorders are easily connected by Plug & Play.
