American Dynamics, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco (NYSE: TYC), introduces the Illustra Flex Series of IP cameras, providing very affordable, high-definition 1MP and 3MP video with excellent low light performance. These cameras give businesses cost-effective camera options without sacrificing image quality.
Unlike other entry-level IP cameras on the market, the high-resolution Illustra Flex box, bullet, and mini-domes (indoor and outdoor) include premium features such as true day/night, 3D dynamic noise reduction (3D DNR), varifocal lenses and triple video streaming to provide high quality video at all light levels whilst reducing low light storage requirements. Illustra Flex can also significantly reduce storage costs for users by employing a unique combination of true day/night, 3D DNR and auto shutter/frame control work to improve the image quality of low light video whilst minimising the creation of storage intensive noise.
The Flex Series also features motion detection for instant alerts of intruders, making the cameras ideal for retail stores, small bank branches, and other businesses concerned with maintaining a very secure environment whilst meeting tight budget requirements. The bullet and outdoor mini-dome, with IP66-rated enclosures, ensure the durability necessary for outdoor applications.
“Balancing the requirements of image quality with cost considerations is a key challenge facing many security professionals in smaller businesses,” said Stephan Beckmann, Product Marketing Manager, EMEA for Tyco Security Products. “Our new Illustra Flex Series offers features you’d expect in premium cameras plus the absolute essentials like PoE, H.264 compression, and integrated mounts to keep installation and storage costs down.”
All Illustra Flex cameras are compatible with VideoEdge VMS and exacqVision VMS. Plus, the entire portfolio is ONVIF conformant – earning its ‘Flex’ name by offering compatibility with a number of third-party video management systems (VMS). Illustra Flex cameras can produce up to three simultaneous video streams for complete flexibility in video storage and display in your VMS.
