Sanyo launches new CCTV cameras
Dubai, January 11, 2010
Sanyo Electric, a world leading digital CCTV camera manufacturer, recently rolled out its latest range of CCTV cameras in the Middle East market.
The move complements a recent IMS report forecasting the Middle East surveillance market’s strong growth through 2010, a statement said.
The launch was announced during a CCTV product seminar held recently in Dubai, where highlighted its four lines of surveillance cameras—the new high definition (HD) cameras; the wide dynamic range camera series; the vandal-resistant Infrared (IR) cameras and the colour mini dome cameras.
“The Middle East region is currently witnessing an increased demand for cutting edge surveillance equipment,” said Farzan Farooque, product manager - CCTV, Sanyo Gulf.
“Companies, schools and even home owners are increasingly installing cameras for security purposes and to monitor ingress and egress movement within their facilities. Also, countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Jordan have seen increased government installations like street surveillance cameras to enhance safety and security,” he added.
“To keep up with this demand, Sanyo is bringing in its broad range of surveillance cameras to the region to allow potential customers access to surveillance equipment that can best suit their needs and fit their budget requirements.”
Sanyo’s full HD series is the world’s first full high definition camera range that offers full HD at a full frame rate, the statement said.
This new line incorporates the newly developed Xacti HD-Pro and Optimum IP-Pro engines that ensure clear and crisp full HD images, and has a compact design that is approximately 40 per cent smaller than its predecessors.
The series offers two ways to achieve improved surveillance images—preserving pixel density by using a wider viewing range or reduce pixel density for shorter viewing ranges.
Utilising a 1280x960 pixel screen, captured images provide users a clearer view of important details like faces, plate numbers and the like. Images can be recorded onto an SD or HDD and can be cropped without losing the quality of the image.
Sanyo’s wide dynamic range camera series introduces the use of a new system called the retina morphic processing algorithm, which allows the camera to capture a wider range image similar to the human eyes’ wide scope of vision.
The wide dynamic range series offers superior resolution of 550 TV lines and has a digital noise reduction function that provides smearless, true day and night images.
The vandal-resistant IR dome camera pioneers the use of an IR-LED system that allows clear capture of images even in dark conditions. Whereas other surveillance cameras are packaged separately with infrared devices and LEDs, the IR dome camera series comes with a built-in IR reader and LED device.
The colour mini-dome camera is available in mini-dome size, using the Fujinon vari-focal lens that allows resolution of up to 540 TV lines.
“Sanyo aims to reinforce its leadership in the Middle East’s rapidly growing CCTV market by highlighting our wide line of surveillance products,” said Farooque.
“Moreover, these new surveillance products help promote our unique ‘Think GAIA’ philosophy of creating solutions for a sustainable earth through the synergy of our core technologies. Sanyo remains steadfast in its commitment to provide our customers with products that can help bolster productivity and ensure total peace of mind,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
