Redvision announces SDK integration with IDIS NVRs and VMS solutions

Redvision has announced that its RV30™ rugged PTZ dome cameras will now fully integrate with IDIS DirectIP™ NVRs and IDIS Center™ video management software (VMS). Unveiled at Intersec 2017, the integration allows RV30™ plug-and-play camera set up using the IDIS DirectIP™ NVRs. Much of the Redvision IP camera’s advanced functionality is enabled, including variable speed PTZ operation, for responsive operator control; minimal joy-stick latency; wiper, IR and white light illumination by manual switch or schedule; and programming of multiple pre-sets and tours. The IDIS DirectIP™ NVRs record the camera’s Full HD, primary video stream, whilst using its lower resolution sub-streams for efficient control, display and transmission. IDIS is a specialist, South Korean manufacturer of video surveillance equipment. Billy Hopkins, Technical... Read More

Redvision X-SERIES™ take toughness to another level

Redvision X-SERIES™ take toughness to another level

Vandal-resistance is the most common toughness rating for CCTV products. It is, in fact, a measure of impact resistance, as defined in European standard EN 62262. Products are issued with an IK rating, from IK 00 denoting no impact protection, through to IK10, the maximum. An IK10 product will resist an impact from a 5kg steel mass dropping or swinging into it, from 500mm. Redvision believes IK10 is not exacting enough. Paul Hucker, Managing Director of Redvision, explains, “A camera might experience far greater forces in real applications. In our own impact testing we swing a 14lb (6.5Kg) sledge hammer, on a 2m handle, at the camera with great force a number of times. The camera resists the impact and... Read More
