LILIN introduces next generation analogue HD auto focus surveillance cameras for end users

LILIN has announced a major expansion of its surveillance camera family with three new AHD models featuring 1080p/1280H resolution, a remote auto-focus 2.8-8 mm lens and long transmission distances, along with the convenience of three form factors (ie dome, bullet and turret) to fit a variety of applications.

The new remote auto focus AHD products provide a value added offer with the high quality video found in LILIN’s popular IP series with integration into leading automation platforms.

“We have worked hard in identifying ways to improve the overall installation experience with our HD analogue products,” explained general manager Joe Cook. “Simply mount and aim the camera type that best fits the application then adjust the FOV and fine-tune the focus using AHD UTC communication from the DHD516 Series and other compatible recorders. Our newest AHD cameras allow security installers to maintain the familiarity of analogue video technology while allowing their end users to enjoy the benefits of HD surveillance combined with simplified installation.”

UTC technology allows end users to remotely set up LILIN AHD cameras using compatible UTC recorders, in turn reducing the time taken to do so and eliminating the need for varifocal adjustments at the camera. In addition, the infrared LED automatically activates for image capture in total darkness.

The new AHD652AX2.8 is a small, unobtrusive turret-style dome camera designed for indoor/outdoor use, and especially in low-light areas. The AHD662AX2.8 is a rugged outdoor dome camera featuring IK vandal-resistance protection, a defogging capability and an IP66 weather resistance rating such that it can operate in a wide temperature range from -40°F to 122°F.

The AHD842AX2.8 is a fully-featured bullet camera for both indoor and outdoor use.

Double award triumph for IDIS security camera technology

The H.265 IR PTZ surveillance camera developed by IDIS has achieved the rare distinction of winning two of Germany’s top international design accolades. The innovative camera has scooped both a 2018 International iF Design Award and the Red Dot ‘Seal of Quality’ Award.

The annual iF Design Awards are globally-recognised prizes, this year attracting no less 6,402 entries from 54 countries. The awards have been running since 1954. This time around, the panel of independent expert Judges selected just 65 winners.

Also dating back to the 1950s, the Red Dot Award is now one of the most sought-after quality marks when it comes to recognition of good design. The scheme recognises qualities such as ‘ease of use, high level of functionality, attractive appearance and compatibility with the environment’.

The double-winning entry from IDIS, namely the H.265 IR DC-S3883HRX model, provides clearer images using an 8 MP auto focus lens. It’s equipped with high-powered IR LEDs for motion detection and image analysis of objects at up to 200 metres during night-time conditions. The cameras’ horizontally-placed lenses and IR capabilities are designed to reduce camera height and prevent diffuse reflection during tilt moving. This design feature improves usability with notably smooth movement of the lens head.

IDIS’ winning network PTZ also features a 31x auto focus optical zoom lens delivering 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) resolution, as well as two-way audio, a built-in heater and PoE. In addition, it incorporates IDIS Intelligent Codec and Motion Adaptive Transmission technology, which delivers savings of up to 90% on storage and bandwidth depending upon the scene and resolution.

James Min, managing director of IDIS Europe, has welcomed the iF and Red Dot Awards, duly attributing IDIS’ success to continual investment in product design aimed at superior performance and ease of use.

Min commented: “The IDIS development team is delighted with these international awards because they recognise the importance that we afford to product excellence in surveillance. Our aim is to continually improve on the design, quality and performance of our products and to lead innovation whenever and wherever we can.”
