Honeywell’s EQUIP™ Series is an array of IP-based products that have an open architecture platform and utilize a single Application Program Interface (API). The API allows for a common user experience and integration with hybrid Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and Network Video Recorders (NVRs).
Honeywell’s new ACUIX™ IP PTZ Dome offers the latest in digital video surveillance. ACUIX IP is the combination of world-class video and leading-edge IP networking technologies to provide dual streaming of MJPEG and MPEG-4 images in 4CIF, 2CIF, and CIF resolutions with rates up to 30 frames per second (25 fps for PAL systems).
The ACUIX IP PTZ dome offers multiple housings and high-resolution, auto-focus cameras for virtually any application. The color camera is available with an 18X zoom lens with 470 TVL (460 TVL PAL) of resolution.
The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and True Day/Night (TDN) models feature 18X, 26X and 35X zoom lenses with up to 540 TVL (530 TVL PAL) of resolution. The 35X model also includes electronic stabilization for improved image quality in unstable mounting situations.
The ACUIX IP PTZ dome uses Honeywell technology for camera sabotage detection, remote firmware updating and secure storage of all camera settings. Camera sabotage detection notifies the user when a camera has been blinded or vandalized, ensuring the integrity of the video and alerting the user to a live event or system problem disrupting the video stream. Honeywell’s technology also allows users to remotely upload firmware to all domes and permits secure storage of all camera settings such as labels, presets, tours and privacy zones.
Market Opportunities The combination of the latest in digital technology, advanced video processing and aesthetically pleasing design makes the ACUIX IP ideally suited for large retailers, airports, government installations, schools and campuses, industrial environments, and anywhere detailed surveillance is essential.
The ACUIX dome offers cameras for any application. The High Resolution color camera is available with a 23X zoom lens. The True Day/Night (TDN) models feature 18X, 23X, 25X, or 35X zoom lenses. The 23X TDN and 35X TDN models also offer Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) for difficult lighting situations and the 35X TDN/WDR camera also includes Electronic Image Stabilization for improved image quality in unstable mounting situations.
The ACUIX dome also features Honeywell’s proprietary IntelliBus™ protocol. In addition to the standard PTZ control functions, the IntelliBus protocol allows users to remotely upload firmware to all or selected domes without losing the use of the camera. IntelliBus stores camera settings such as labels, presets, tours and privacy zones so they can be uploaded to a new camera/optics package if required. This provides the ultimate protection for the dome’s settings.
The ACUIX dome comes with many software features that increase performance and make installation and operation easy. Dynamic Privacy Zones allow a user to mask up to 32 regions to provide absolute privacy to sensitive areas. Password protection prevents unauthorized users from changing the system settings. Other features include an on-screen position and tilt display, and multi-language menus are provided for English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Polish, and Spanish.
