Intelligent video surveillance solutions specialist Pelco has released the Sarix Professional (Pro) Series 3 fixed IP cameras. Offered in mini-dome, bullet, box and wedge configurations, these IP cameras deliver a balanced set of features and performance at affordable price points that allow for deployment across a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications, including low-light and wide dynamic range (WDR) capabilities with the options of 1 MP, 2 MP, 3 MP and 5 MP resolutions.
Sarix Pro 3 cameras are ideal for commercial, Government, healthcare and education sector projects that demand a robust set of features, superior performance and image clarity in an easily installed and maintained camera system.
“The Sarix Pro 3 IP cameras solve real security video challenges in a broad range of industries by providing more security detail in challenging scenes with excellent low-light and WDR performance,” said Kevin Saldanha, principal product manager at Pelco. “In the healthcare and education verticals, where vandalism and bi-directional audio communication is required, this camera series has models with IK10 vandal resistance and built-in microphones that can meet those requirements seamlessly.”
Saldanha added: “For commercial industry-related needs that require anything from several hundred up to to thousands of high-resolution cameras with 24/7 monitoring on a limited budget, the Sarix Pro 3 Series delivers cost-savings with less bandwidth and storage requirements supported by H.265 video encoding as well as benefiting from Pelco Smart Compression.”
The cameras offer up to 120 dB true WDR. These cameras can bring out detail in both very bright and dark areas to maximise visibility and are especially useful in environments that have both dark and light areas in one scene, such as entrances.
Adaptive IR illumination is set at up to 50 metres for dome cameras and up to 80 metres for bullet cameras. With capabilities that produce detailed images in zero light, the adaptive IR Illuminator avoids overexposure that can hinder detection as objects approach the camera.
One camera can provide wide, yet detailed coverage with resolutions up to 5 MP at 30 fps. This level of clarity allows end users to view vehicle license plate numbers and faces.
There’s flexible recording and viewing of video with three streams and optimised streams to save on costs. All three independent streams are configurable with video encoding (H.265/H.264/MJPEG), resolution and frame rate.
Flexible deployment in challenging environments is a key attribute, with IK10, IP66 and IP67 ratings and a wide operating temperature. The cameras’ housings are built using metal construction and select camera models are ideal for areas prone to tampering and vandalism, such as prisons, hospitals and schools. IP66 and IP67-rated models are available for water and dust protection, while environmental models can operate in extreme temperature environments (between –40° to 60°C).
These cameras work with VideoXpert on both H.264/H.265 and with Endura and Digital Sentry along with VxToolbox. They’re also ONVIF Profile S, G, Q, and T compliant and work with well with third party video management systems that conform to these specific ONVIF Profiles.
