Access Control And Video Surveillance News

Each month, Business Solutions reports news on business in the channel. This month in Access Control And Video Surveillance news, Panasonic announces the availability of the first cameras in its new “6 Series,” and Genetec offers AutoVu, a license plate recognition solution.

Panasonic Presents First Cameras In “6 Series”

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America announced availability of the first four indoor dome network cameras in its new 6 Series i-PRO camera line-up. The cameras are available in Full HD 1080p or HD 720p models with the choice of standard or vandal-resistant housings and are designed for all lighting conditions. They produce high-definition resolution at 60 frames per second, enabling the capture of clear images of moving objects. The newly developed precision dome cover maintains distortion-free images through a wide range of tilt angles. The cameras feature Dual SDXC memory card slots that support high-capacity H.264/JPEG edge recording with flexible record modes including alarm recording and backup recording upon network failure. Series 6 models are also capable of combining space on two cards for longer recordings or creating mirror copies for redundancy purposes.

Genetec Introduces AutoVu Managed Services

Genetec now offers AutoVu Managed Services, a new, turnkey license plate recognition (LPR) solution. This solution eliminates the need to commission and maintain servers or other IT infrastructure to support LPR systems. Hosted on a Microsoft Windows Azure cloud-computing platform, the solution offers the same features as an on-premise system. State-of-the-art encryption and transmission protocols assure data is reliably managed and secured at all times. Qualified Genetec partners can install and configure the solution, and can provide performance monitoring and remote settings updates and installation upgrades as managed services.
