Pixim Inc., a leading provider of imaging chips for enterprise security cameras, announced that Interlogix, a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, has introduced the UltraView XP4 camera series based on Seawolf, Pixim’s popular image capture chip. The new XP4 cameras, which are available in both NTSC and PAL versions, provide “superior wide dynamic range and low light performance in one package.” They can be mounted in a variety of positions including wall mount, ceiling mount, pendant mount, and flush mount.
Using Seawolf technology customized for Interlogix, the UltraView XP4 cameras are specified at an effective resolution of 690 HTVL in color and offer exceptional wide dynamic range. In addition, the new cameras offer True Day Night functionality via a removable IR switch mechanism that requires just 0.01 lux of illumination to produce usable images at a full 30 frames per second. Even lower light performance is achieved when slow shutter modes of up to 32x are enabled.
“With the UltraView XP4 camera series, we’ve made the decision-making process easy on the end customer. These cameras are pre-configured out of the box for most security applications,” explains Thomas De Ceulaer, product marketing manager – video, fire & security products, UTC Climate, Controls & Security – Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “They deliver usable images in the most challenging high-contrast, low light, and mixed lighting conditions. In addition, they have the durability to work outdoors, while their compact size makes them ideal for indoor applications.”
“State-of-the-art components like Seawolf are contributing to make the UltraView XP4 camera series a high-quality product range,” says John Monti, Pixim’s vice president of marketing and business development. “This was proven when the UltraView XP4 series won the New Product Showcase award for Best in Surveillance Cameras SD at ISC West 2012. These versatile cameras can be used in every type of installation from shipping ports to banks to major retailers.”
