Lightmaster camera from IDIS realises “fast and precise” PTZ functionality

by Brian Sims

IDIS has extended its popular DirectIP surveillance range with the introduction of the flagship 2 MP 36x Lightmaster IR outdoor-ready camera for “fast and precise” PTZ performance. The DC-S6283HRX Lightmaster builds on the specification of IDIS’ successful PTZ models. A high-grade lens combines with advanced sensor technology and finely-tuned, client-side image processing, thereby allowing the capture of vivid, true colour video in extremely low light conditions.

The camera benefits from IDIS’ signature true plug-and-play, one-click configuration and features 36x optical zoom, IR up to 350 metres, true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), digital image stabilisation, a built-in heater and a vandal-proof casing.

“Designed for 24/7 accurate PTZ operation, this new Lightmaster camera delivers unparalleled performance and exceptional detail when zooming,” explained James Min, managing director of IDIS Europe. “The camera is equipped with a variety of intelligent features and can move between pre-set positions and zoom-in automatically in response to detected events. The end result is maximum protection for a wide range of applications.”

The end user experience is enhanced with IDIS Smart UX Controls, an advanced and simple-to-use interface featuring intuitive slingshot and rubber band-style controls. Operators can smoothly and seamlessly follow moving objects in real-time with groundbreaking accuracy by panning images at different speeds and in different directions – literally without lifting a finger – by using a CTRL button and mouse combination.

The camera uses H.264 and H.265 combined with IDIS Intelligent Codec to deliver significant bandwidth and storage savings and benefits from low Power-over-Ethernet energy consumption.

The risk of gaps in footage is eliminated thanks to IDIS Smart Failover. In the event of network instability, the camera automatically records to an integral 256 Gb SD card and transfers data to the NVR once connection is restored, which then avoids the need for engineer call-outs to retrieve footage.

“We’re listening and responding to customer demand with our new 2 MP PTZ Lightmaster camera, providing an easy-to-deploy solution for wide area coverage and perimeter detection,” concluded Min. “It’s particularly suited to town centre and city surveillance, sports stadiums, outdoor retail parks, manufacturing and logistics sites and high-security perimeter applications where outstanding performance and ease-of-use combined with a low total cost of ownership are becoming essential for the end user.”
