Don’t feel the heat, use Redvision X-SERIES™ cameras

Don’t feel the heat, use Redvision X-SERIES™ cameras

Before entering the African, Middle Eastern and Southern European markets, Redvision has established its X-SERIES™ camera’s performance in hotter climate conditions. Exceeding the operating temperature of an electrical and electronic product, or the temperature tolerance of the components within it, dramatically shortens its life and jeopardizes warranties. The product operating temperature will be above the ambient climatic temperature, due to the heat generated by components. In the X-SERIES™, the prime contributors are the PTZ motor, LED illuminators and power supply. Exposure to direct sunlight also has a significant effect. Redvision approached TÜV SÜD, a world-leading provider of testing and product certification to carry out a series of independent tests on the X-SERIES™, simulating operation in hotter climates. The test ran... Read More
Redvision launch radar controlled rugged dome

Redvision launch radar controlled rugged dome

Ogier Electronics makes the Scan-360 plug and play radar unit, which is used to control Redvision’s IP-based and analogue rugged domes. The combination can operate as a standalone, automatic PTZ camera system or may be integrated with leading VMS solutions, via a built-in RS485 data port.  Paul Hucker, MD of Redvision, explains, “Intruders, such as people and vehicles, are detected automatically at distances of up to 200 metres, in all weather conditions, day or night. The intruder’s X and Y coordinates are mapped to our X-SERIES™ rugged dome’s pan, tilt and zoom functionality, enabling automatic, real-time tracking. Alternatively, the X-SERIES™ is pointed in the direction of the intruder, so the automatic PTZ tracking functionality of the VMS can take over... Read More

Redvision profiles its X-SERIES™ cameras at Intersec 2016

Redvision is to profile its pioneering, UK manufactured, X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ dome camera range at Intersec 2016. IP and analogue X‑SERIES™ cameras will be on the Redvision stand, S1-E48, with additional IP cameras on the Wavestore, Synectics and Digifort stands. Paul Hucker, MD of Redvision, explains, “Recent temperature testing has proven that the X-SERIES™ cameras can withstand the extreme heat that can occur in the Middle Eastern markets, represented by the Intersec exhibition. Inclusion of the X-SERIES™ on leading VMS providers’ stands demonstrates the wide integration potential for our products.” The X‑SERIES™ cameras are modular and can be configured as fully functional PTZ cameras or as a domes. A wiper can be added to remove water or dirt from the... Read More
Redvision announce SDK integration with Veracity's COLDSTORE

Redvision announce SDK integration with Veracity's COLDSTORE

Redvision’s Full HD RV30™ is now fully integrated with a VMS system which exploits Veracity’s COLDSTORE, the world’s only storage system designed specifically for digital video surveillance. Veracity, the specialist manufacturer of video surveillance transmission, storage and display products, used Redvision’s newly released software development kit (SDK) to enable the integration. The SDK’s logical format allowed Veracity developers to complete the integration in record time, even with the comprehensive level of control it enabled. Kingsley Greenman, Director of Technical Projects at Veracity UK, explains, “The COLDSTORE-partnered VMS initially controlled Redvision’s RV30 IP rugged dome using the universal ONVIF protocol, which worked immediately with no additional development. However, Redvision’s Firmware and SDK package allowed us to take full advantage of more... Read More
Redvision’s SDK makes integration simple

Redvision’s SDK makes integration simple

Redvision provides a software development kit (SDK) to allow NVR and VMS manufacturers to integrate and control its new Full HD RVX-IP30™ PTZ and dome camera range. The SDK is presented in exactly the format control system developers require for comprehensive integration of all PTZ functionality. Bill Mead, MD of Videcom Security Ltd, recently integrated the company’s VNR control system with Redvison’s RVX-IP30, explains. “Redvision is a product partner of Videcom Security. The company provided us with a Firmware and SDK package based on the ONVIF integration protocol. This allowed us to integrate our VNR control system with the RVX-IP30 rugged domes, for use in local authority applications, where we are widely used and specified. “The integration of video cameras...

Redvision’s RVX-IP30™, the IP version of its successful X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ and dome camera range, is now available in 1080p (Full HD) and 720p (HD) resolution models. Both models have three, simultaneous, real-time video streams. The primary stream is for recording and is either 1080p or 720p, depending on model, with sub-streams of 720p, D1, VGA and QVGA for lower band-width recording, display and transmission. Video compression format options include H.264, MPEG4 or JPEG and both models have a 30x optical and 12x digital zoom. The RVX-IP30-1080 HD model delivers Full HD, 1920x1080p resolution video, with a sensitivity of 0.35Lux in day/night mode reducing to 0.05Lux with IR illumination switched on. The RVX-IP30-720 HD has 1280x720p resolution, but with 0.25Lux... Read More
