The new cameras build on the power of IDIS Instant Meta Filtering, allowing users to easily access and search large volumes of video data using the totally cost- and license-free IDIS Center Video Management System (VMS), speeding up investigations from days and hours to minutes. The full toolkit of new high-accuracy, easy-to-use Edge VA functionality includes line cross, loitering and object detection as well as other useful features such as audio detection, active tampering, trip zones and alarm in capability.

The new domes include full HD IR domes (DC-D6233RX), full HD flush IR domes (DC-D6233FRX), full HD vandal-resistant IR domes (DC-D6233HRX and DC-6243HRX), and the LightMaster full HD IR dome (DC-D6233HRXL). All the new dome models deliver full HD (1080p) resolution, two-way audio, IDIS Smart Failover protection against loss of data, and outstanding image quality in all lighting conditions with true wide dynamic range (WDR) easily handling rapidly changing light and shade.

The same powerful features are delivered with the new full-HD bullet camera range, too, which includes models with built-in heaters (DC-T6233HRX and DC6243HRX), IR tech and a PIR sensor (DC-T6234HRX), and an addition to the IDIS LightMaster range.

The LightMaster bullet and dome models feature high-grade lenses with advanced sensor technology and finely tuned, client-side image processing to allow the capture of vivid, true-color video in extremely low light conditions. They are engineered to ensure excellent image capture at longer distances, with minimum motion blur, making them well-suited for shopping centers, public areas and outdoor spaces.

Both the bullets and domes feature IDIS’s trademark true plug-and-play installation and one-click peer-to-peer configuration, ensuring rapid, trouble-free setup and improved, multilayer cybersecurity, including two-factor authentication and eliminating the need for engineers to manually enter passwords even for multisite deployments.

For users, the built-in analytics capability allows easy to search by color and type of object (for example, people, cars and bicycles) and number, to deliver significant labor efficiencies and reduce investigations from days and hours to just minutes. And, a new IDIS mapping tool allows users to select a specific camera on an intuitive layout plan, and live view or playback video in the corner of the screen to further improve control room and operator efficiency.

Keith Drummond, senior director of Sales, IDIS America, noted:

This new line-up will allow customers to achieve new levels of efficiency with easy-to-use analytics that address their key priorities. For installers and integrators, the 6000 range is a valuable addition to the choice of IDIS end-to-end solutions, giving them successful project delivery and trouble-free maintenance going forward.
