MUNICH, Germany -Xenics thermal imaging cameras are now available integrated with Quadrox standards-based platform of video management software.
The agreement marks a step forward in the worldwide adaptation of cost-efficient and application-oriented thermal imaging systems in a variety of industrial and security environments. Xenics is provider of advanced infrared detectors and customized IR imaging solutions based on a global distribution and support network. Quadrox is a developer of digital standards-based network video management software for similar applications.
WebCCTV NVR is a cost-effective network video solution that supports advanced functions. It introduces a new dimension of reliability and performance in an user-friendly way. A turnkey solution consisting of reliable hardware, it is backed by an on-site warranty and optimally installed video management and operating system software. It supports multiple standards. The integration into the Quadrox video management platform of Xenics thermal imaging cameras allows security integrators to deliver state-of-the-art thermal imaging solutions. Of foremost interest is the integration of the latest Xenics thermal imaging camera model Gobi, which was conceived as a cost-reducing, "smart" IR imaging solution. Gobi-384 delivers 384 x 288 pixels on a 25 m pixel pitch and contains the camera head, DSP electronics and TCP/IP interface in a very compact housing of just 70x73x65mm.
All contents and metadata of such integrated imaging systems can be recorded and transmitted over industry-standard networks. Advanced motion analysis allows for cost-effective recording and incident optimisation and evaluation. Video management features that users have come to expect with regular digital video in the visual realm are now also available for thermal camera applications. At this time, a particularly strong and growing need for thermal video use is seen in the public and corporate security sector. Other important current and future applications of Xenics thermal cameras are high-performance systems for industrial and public-service applications, as well as in automotive driver-assistance and night-vision environments.
