PSIA Compliant H.264 Day-Night Cameras

Honeywell Systems Group : 26 July, 2011  (New Product)
One Box Camera and two mini-domes have been released by Honeywell with H.264 compression, day and night performance and compliance to the emerging PSIA open video networking standard
PSIA Compliant H.264 Day-Night Cameras

Honeywell has unveiled three new H.264, True Day/Night cameras; the HCD5MIHX box camera, the HD3MDIHX fixed mini dome for indoor use and the HD4MDIHX, a vandal resistant fixed mini dome. The cameras all use efficient compression technology to provide high picture quality at minimal bandwidth.

Network and storage limitations have long been a barrier to the adoption of high definition (HD) cameras. Each new model provides 720p image quality at lower bandwidth by using H.264 compression to reduce the size of the digital video file by more than 50 per cent compared with the standard M-JPEG format. In addition, unlike some other solutions on the market, the cameras provide 720p resolution at full frame rate in low light and very little ‘noise’ ensuring detail is optimised in images captured under these conditions without compromising on storage.

The True/Day Night cameras also significantly reduce the cost of conversion to HD IP video by offering H.264 compression at a very competitive price compared to MPEG-4 cameras. This provides customers with a cost effective way of migrating straight to a HD IP system which offers superior detail and image quality compared to analogue or VGA IP.

From a cost efficiency perspective, the better quality widescreen picture these cameras provide also means that fewer cameras are required in some installations, making it potentially cheaper for end users to upgrade from analogue to HD models rather than from analogue to VGA IP.  The cameras can also be retrofitted on many existing DVR/NVR installations without requiring additional storage.

Jeremy Kimber, Commercial Operational Marketing Leader EMEA comments: “With their high performance and low noise, these latest cameras are the ideal solution for customers who are seeking to optimise bandwidth and storage without compromising on picture quality.”

All three models conform to the PSIA specification supporting interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. PSIA compliant devices are able to exchange live video, audio, metadata and control information and are automatically discovered and connected to network applications such as video management systems.
