Illustra Flex IR PTZ
Setting a new standard for PTZ cameras
The two new 2 megapixel Illustra Flex IR PTZs from Tyco, the security products division of Johnson Controls, are packed with functionality which enable them to collectively provide an affordable solution for virtually any video surveillance application where the cameras are required to cover wide areas in varying environmental and light conditions.
A combination of 30x optical and 12x digital magnification means operators are able to use either model to zoom in to see close up detail of any activity at a distance of up to 300 metres.
Adaptive IR Illumination
The ability to capture high quality images is significantly enhanced by adaptive IR illumination which adjusts the intensity of the IR in line with the operator controlled zoom setting of the camera. The IR illumination built into the indoor IFSO2P6INWIT Illustra Flex IR PTZ camera, enables it to capture high clear images in night time conditions at a distance of up to 25 metres, whilst the outdoor IFS02P60NWIT’s IR illumination has a range of 150 metres.
Both cameras are both packaged in a bubble-free, IP66 environmentally sealed and IK10 vandal-resistant housing, instead of a transparent dome cover usually fitted to PTZ cameras. This negates the potential problem of IR diffused reflection and maximises image quality, regardless of the camera tilt angle. They also feature true Day/Night functionality and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).
The outdoor IFS02P60NWIT’ can be powered by 24VAC or an optional PoE IEEE 802.2bt injector.
Illustra® IntelliZip video compression incorporated into both cameras enhances current H.264 and H.265 streaming parameters by optimizing the bitrate based on scene complexity. This lowers storage costs and minimises bandwidth requirements
The VideoEdge® TrickleStor feature built into Illustra Flex cameras allows video recording to continue at the edge if there is disruption to the network. This means that if communications between an Exacq or VideoEdge® NVR is interrupted, Illustra Flex cameras will detect the anomaly and automatically begin recording video onto an SD card. The recorded video is transferred from the SD card to the NVR’s hard drive for seamless viewing, as soon as connection with the network is restored.
The Illustra Flex IFSO2P6INWIT and IFS02P60NWIT have been designed and built in line with the rigorous standards of the Tyco Cyber Protection Product Security Program. As such, key features include multi-level password protection, IP address filtering, user access logs, and certificate management.
