Norbain announces release of new Wisenet Q cameras

Norbain has announced the release of the new Wisenet Q cameras from Hanwha Techwin Europe. The 24 models in the Wisenet Q Series are packed with innovative features such as H.265 compression and WiseStream, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image.

When WiseStream is combined with H.265 compression, bandwidth efficiency can be improved by up to 75% when compared to current H.264 technology. This ensures that Hanwha Techwin Europe’s Wisenet Q Series is one of the most bandwidth-friendly camera ranges available.

There has been no compromise on build quality or feature sets within the 24 Wisenet Q cameras and domes. Even IR illumination is provided as standard.

Available in 2 MP and 4 MP Full-HD versions, the cameras also feature True Wide Dynamic Range, Defocus Detection, Hallway View and Lens Distortion Correction to deliver optimised images in every situation.

Defocus Detection is available on all models and recognises when a camera is out of focus. The focus of Wisenet Q 4 MP models equipped with a varifocal lens can also be adjusted over the network to reduce installation time.

Hallway View provides a highly effective way in which to monitor narrow vertical areas such as corridors, tunnels and aisles. It enables cameras which can generate images in the 9:16 x 3:4 aspect ratio to work effectively in tall and narrow spaces, with the added bonus of minimised bandwidth and video storage requirements.

Lens Distortion Correction (LDC) compensates for the image distortion that can occur with wide angle lenses.

Motion and tamper detection, PoE/DC dual power and on-board edge-based storage options, including NAS or 128 GB micro SD, SDHC and SDXC all add to the system flexibility and user-friendliness of the Wisenet Q Series of cameras and domes which have collectively been designed to provide a competitively-priced video surveillance solution for banks, the retail sector, offices, transportation and a wide range of other applications.

Norbain offers customers new PAC 212 two-door standalone controller

Norbain can now offer customers the new PAC 212 two-door standalone controller. Suitable for commercial applications, the PAC 212 is built around the PAC 500 controller series and offers end users many of the standard features associated with this range.

Designed to offer a versatile solution and cater for different applications, the PAC 212 allows for up to 2,000 users to be administered via the built-in reader in both versions of the controller: the legacy Low Frequency (LF) and high security High Frequency (HF) format.

It’s a true two-door controller which allows for two PAC readers to be connected per channel. The controller has also been designed to programme ID credentials, rendering it ideal for commercial applications.

Due to the simplicity of the system, programming of additional ID credentials can be carried out in less than ten seconds following just three simple steps with an instant activation of the new IDs.

Ideal for upgrading legacy systems that require enhanced access features, the PAC 212 Controller is suitable for any security application where flexibility, building protection and local control are of paramount importance.

When used in conjunction with any PAC HF or MT readers and PAC’s Ops credentials, the PAC 212 provides AES-128 bit certified security which dramatically reduces the risk of token cloning, in turn increasing security and minimising the threat of unauthorised access.

The controller offers a wide choice of configuration options such as time profiles, PIN and Prox, controller and reader tamper protection and additional features (often found only in online controllers) like programmable extra door time and local Anti- Passback.

Moreover, for increased security and accountability, the controller is capable of holding up to 4,000 events and token information in its memory. With the built-in USB port, exporting this information is “easy and effortless”.
