Axis Communications has announced the launch of several new network cameras featuring infrared (IR) illumination.
Models include pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ), fixed dome, bullet, fisheye and panoramic cameras plus discreet sensors units. The camera's ability to operate in pitch darkness allows 24/7 surveillance without the need for additional lighting, thus enabling very discreet surveillance in sensitive locations. Axis OptimizedIR technology, which features in some models, optimises use of light to give an even illumination over the complete camera view.
The new cameras being launched by the company include:
- HDTV 1080p
- 30x optical zoom
- Coverage up to 200 metres or further
- Compact dome design for city surveillance applications

Axis Communications says
"It is always our intention to develop cameras that offer maximum value to our customers" says Peter Rietz, director, product management at Axis Communications. "Being able to integrate OptimizedIR in a broader range of our network cameras and a variety of form factors means that customers have more ability than ever before to reap the benefits of IR.
Indeed, we can see IR capabilities as a more and more required feature in the future."

The Communaute d'Agglomeration, or district, of La Rochelle in western France operates 13 public waste reception centres which were experiencing frequent break-ins and theft of valuable recyclable material.
The sites needed a major security upgrade -- most importantly a reliable locking system with a track record of successfully protecting remote, dispersed premises. Any new system would need to prevent physical keys from being copied then reused without authorisation. It would require the flexibility to allow easy public access to the 13 sites during business hours, and to offer tailored access at designated times to maintenance staff, contractors or supervisors.
It must also enable better workflow management for mobile security staff. Some are based up to 25 km from sites they protect. Communaute d'Agglomeration managers chose CLIQ(R) key-based electronic access control, installing padlocks and cylinders at all 13 sites and issuing programmable keys to authorised staff.
"The number of burglaries has been reduced in a spectacular way." Herve Begaud, Communaute d'Agglomeration La Rochelle.
The impact was instant: "The number of burglaries has been reduced in a spectacular way," says Herve Begaud at the Communaute d'Agglomeration La Rochelle.
"We used to report damages every week. Now, we have had a single, failed, attempt on a cylinder in the last 6 months."
Easy installation, efficient workflows
Programmable CLIQ(R) locks are key-operated and wireless -- a standard battery inside every CLIQ(R) key powers the microelectronics -- so new cylinders and padlocks can be deployed almost anywhere, including outdoors.
They are waterproof and operate without problems in temperature extremes. Now, security guards for the 13 La Rochelle sites carry a single CLIQ(R) key programmed to open only appropriate locks. There's no longer the need for managers to duplicate and then track multiple key copies.
It's easy for security administrators to update any key's access permissions using the CLIQ(R) Web Manager software. Should anyone lose a key, its access rights can be deleted. There's no need to replace any locks, which saves time and money and boosts utility security.
Thanks to CLIQ(R) technology, La Rochelle's waste burglars are wasting their time -- literally. La Rochelle district administrators are impressed: they already plan to extend CLIQ(R) access control to all critical municipal sites.
CLIQ(R) is a security locking system with high-end microelectronics, programmable keys and cylinders. The system offers a variety of combinations of mechanical and electronic systems to match different security and flexible access needs.

System integrators are now able to order Wisenet WAVE video management software (VMS) pre-loaded on selected BCDVideo servers (see inset image).
Hanwha Techwin Europe's Wisenet WAVE is available on BCDVideo's latest Apollo and Neptune series, powered by Dell EMC. Both feature newest-generation Intel Xeon processors, dual RAID capabilities, redundant power supplies, worldwide remote secured system management, and a five-year on-site warranty. For enhanced data security, the warranty also includes data media retention, keeping any replaced hard drive on the premises for proper customer disposal.
Each of the pre-loaded servers are equipped with high-performance Intel quad-core processors to ensure fast, powerful and reliable processing of video for mission-critical applications, say Hanwha Techwin and BCDVideo. A full list, which includes rack-mounted, tower and small form factor options, can be seen here. Wisenet WAVE allows users to monitor up to 64 high-definition video streams.
An auto-discover feature ensures connected cameras and a wide range of third-party IP network devices can be addressed and set up in just minutes. An intuitive 'drag and drop' tool makes setting up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall simple, according to the companies, with layouts and sizes that can be customised. Other key features include a virtual PTZ which - at the click of the mouse - enables operators to zoom in on any suspicious activity, while motion detection and video analytics support can be configured to generate alerts when user-defined incidents occur.
"BCDVideo servers are specifically designed for video processing and storage purposes, enabling users to gain maximum value from our Wisenet WAVE VMS," said Tim Biddulph, Head of Product and Solutions at Hanwha Techwin Europe. "While possible to run Wisenet WAVE on virtually any manufacturer's servers subject to a minimum specification, the pre-loaded servers we are offering will minimise installation time and ensure the highest level of reliability, performance, and compatibility." Gary Sykes, BCDVideo's territory manager for UK and Ireland, added: "The collaboration between Hanwha Techwin Europe and BCDVideo delivers the ultimate performance in a turnkey IP surveillance solution.
"Today's security projects demand best-in-breed technology and Hanwha's Wisenet WAVE certainly fits the bill. We are thrilled that Hanwha chose BCDVideo as the platform to best deliver this technology."
