Vista used this year’s IFSEC event to launch a number of products, including their new IP and analogue HD ranges.
Exhibiting in their own right for the first time this year, Vista welcomed customers onto the stand to discover their latest range of IP solutions. Vista demonstrated complete end-to-end IP solutions based on the new extended IP product portfolio, including HD 1080p cameras, NVRs and client viewing platforms. Customers and technology partners commented that Vista has an impressive and cohesive IP product portfolio with some unique features.
Once such feature was Event Boost Technology, officially launched to the public at IFSEC. Boost technology enables Vista's VK2 IP cameras to automatically increase the number of images per second streamed and recorded when an event occurs. This means a customer can record continuously at low frame rate but, when an event occurs, the camera automatically increases up to 25ips 1080p HD video. This dramatically reduces the total amount of network bandwidth and NVR storage required to support HD network cameras as the VK2 cameras only require higher network bandwidth during an event.
The announcement of new products didn’t stop at IP. Vista also introduced their new range of HD analogue products including DVRs and cameras. The latest generation of HD analogue products all boast over 25% image quality increase of recorded images compared to D1, and are fully backwards compatible with existing analogue technologies. Integrators unanimously agreed that the improvement in image quality was immediately obvious.
“We had a great opportunity this year to really showcase our fantastic new product portfolio,” explains Mark Pritchard, Divisional Director of Vista. “Irrespective of IP or Analogue technology, Vista is a provider of HD CCTV that offers both simplicity and functionality across the entire range. Highlights at the show were undoubtedly the Boost feature, cited by many visitors as ‘one of the best features they’ve seen in a long time’. Also popular was the 960h range as the improved video quality and backwards compatibility makes it an easy and powerful upgrade path for analogue users.”
