Tyco Security Products’ Illustra Pro IP Mini-Dome camera

Tyco Security Products has introduced Illustra Pro IP Mini-Dome cameras in both 3 and 5 Megapixel resolutions that deliver “exceptional video quality and performance” for end users across various lighting conditions.

The 3 Megapixel Illustra Pro vandal-resistant IP Mini-Domes realisee HD, real-time video images. Whether in bright sunlight or near/total darkness, important details such as vehicle number plates, merchandise labels, faces and even blurred objects can clearly be seen by the end user.

As part of the high performance Pro range, these dome cameras make use of “the highest performance-critical components, sensors and system platforms available” to meet the most demanding specification requirements in today’s professional-level installations.

Delivering “crisp and clear” HD video at full frame rates, the Illustra Pro Mini-Domes offer premium performance and “category-leading Wide Dynamic Range” in the 5 Megapixel Series as well as “true Wide Dynamic Range” in the 3 Megapixel Series.

On-board motion detection and advanced integrated analytics – such as Region of Interest (ROI) and face detection – help in reducing storage/bandwidth requirements and costs. With support for the addition of exacqVision Edge VMS technology, the Illustra Pro Mini-Domes offer a complete IP surveillance system solution without the need for configuring and maintaining additional VMS server hardware.

Return on investment for end users

“Challenging lighting conditions require high performance cameras that provide superior, detailed video quality 24/7 and under all environmental conditions. This is the foundation of our Illustra range of IP cameras,” said Julian Inman, product marketing manager for video in the EMEA region at Tyco Security Products.

“The Illustra Pro Mini-Domes absolutely answer that call,” continued Inman, “while at the same time offering end users a return on their investment thanks to reduced set-up and configuration. The enhanced feature integration on VideoEdge and exacqVision VMS platforms is a ‘must’ for today’s busy integrators and end users. Certainly, the new Illustra Pro Mini-Domes represent a significant step forward in addressing the primary needs of our customers.”

The cameras are easily configured using almost any web browser to access the camera interface for feature control, including one-touch focus and motorised zoom.

lllustra Connect, a powerful remote management and configuration software tool, further simplifies the set-up and installation of multiple cameras using web browsers on smart phones and tablets. This is a ‘first’ for the Illustra camera product portfolio.

With multiple varifocal motorised lenses, housings and other options available, the Illustra Pro Mini-Domes are supplied in both IP66 and IK-10 rated models for outdoor and vandal-resistant reliability.

Installation is a simple process with integrated options for hard surface and electric box mounts, in addition to a plenum cap for indoor settings and mounting clips designed for recessed installations.

A full set of optional mounts and accessories is also available.
