IDIS introduces DirectIP Super Fisheye 5 MP Compact camera for end users

IDIS has launched the DirectIP Super Fisheye 5 MP Compact camera (DC-Y6513RX), thereby further extending its popular Super Fisheye range. Fisheye cameras are some of IDIS’ best-selling models thanks to their dual-side de-warping and Smart UX Controls, allowing for smooth and intuitive panning, tracking and zooming with ease and accuracy.

The introduction of the DC-Y6513RX reflects IDIS’ continued commitment to market-responsive innovation and meets installer and end user requests for a more compact 360° camera that can capture HD images in all lighting conditions without blind spots. It also lets customers benefit from heat mapping without the hassle and cost of additional appliances or analytics software.

A broad, high-specification camera available in a compact form, the new Super Fisheye 5 MP builds on the success of earlier IDIS Super Fisheye cameras, including the 12 MP DC-Y3C14WRX. it meets industry demands for clear and accurate image capture, long-term performance and reliability while offering end users a low total cost of ownership.

“The Super Fisheye 5 MP Compact is a great choice for wide area surveillance and is already contributing to successful project wins for our integration partners in retail applications, education, healthcare and other environments where customers benefit from cost-effective and simple-to-use analytics,” said James Min, managing director for IDIS Europe. “Its high performance 360° capability means that it can replace multiple fixed lens cameras and provide complete and clear image capture in a variety of lighting conditions. End users benefit from savings in terms of lower upfront equipment and installation costs, with a greatly reduced maintenance expense and video storage burden.”

The IDIS 5 MP IR Compact Fisheye camera’s features include:

*IDIS Smart UC Controls for very high accuracy and ease-of-use, with intuitive ‘rubber band’-style control to deliver a new level of operator experience

*Super smooth de-warping on the camera as well as on desktop applications and mobile devices for added convenience and out-of-hours monitoring

*Quick Controls allowing operators to use the CTRL button with a combination of left, right and wheel mouse clicks for easier and faster investigations

*Full protection against video loss thanks to built-in Smart Failover guaranteeing continued recording in the event of network instability, overload or failure

*IDIS Intelligent Codec that delivers H.264/H.265 dual codec performance and significant bandwidth and storage savings, while also eliminating the need to upgrade hardware

*Quick and simple installation with DirectIP NVRs and true plug-and-play functionality

*Reduced potential for cyber security loopholes with one-click configuration eliminating the need to manage individual passwords for multiple devices

*Heat mapping to more easily identify ‘hotspots’, dead zones and bottlenecks in the retail sector

*Intelligent video and event trigger functions including motion detection, active tampering and trip zones

“The IDIS Super Fisheye 5 MP Compact camera also scores highly on essential features including built-in LEDs for IR operation in full darkness (up to 15 metres), eight-zone privacy masking, true Wide Dynamic Range, ONVIF support, built-in speakers and microphone allowing two-way communications and a five-year free warranty,” continued Min.

*IDIS will be demonstrating its Super Fisheye range and Total Solution line-up at IFSEC International, which runs from 18-20 June at ExCeL, London
