360 Vision launch new ‘Hybrid’ camera
CCTV design and manufacturing company, 360 Vision Technology, has launched a new, patent pending, ‘Hybrid’ upgrade option for the company’s range of high-performance PREDATOR PTZ all-in-one cameras.
The optional ‘Hybrid’ upgrade provides both analogue and HD functionality for any PREDATOR camera model. The deployment of 360 Vision’s future proof ‘patent pending’ Hybrid technology means that when a traditional surveillance installation moves to HD infrastructure, standard analogue 4:3 images (in HD Quality) can be replaced with Full HD 1080p widescreen images – at the flick of a switch and with no additional equipment required.
Currently available with infrared, white light, radar and built-in edge recording options, providing 128GB or 256GB of on-board storage space, now, the option to cater for HD surveillance when required can be chose for any PREDATOR model.
Featuring ONVIF compliance or 360SDK protocols for fast set-up, and IP68 certification to ensure reliable performance in the harshest of environments, all PREDATOR cameras are British designed and manufactured, and carry a comprehensive 3-year warranty.
“The new Hybrid feature adds a further dimension to the comprehensive mix of existing options for the PREDATOR PTZ camera,” says Mark Rees, Business Development Director at 360 Vision.
“Now, installers and end-users can confidently invest in the future, with our Hybrid ‘Patent pending’ technology, to capture widescreen Full High Definition imaging at the flick of a switch – without the need to change the camera unit when they upgrade an existing site to HD cable infrastructure. There is a lot of legacy analogue systems that are crying out for HD upgrades, but budgets often don’t allow both camera and infrastructure changes – we have developed a HD solution that can utilise existing coax/twisted pair cabling to deliver a HD ready experience now, and a full HD solution later.”
