Grundig Security will showcase its new IP camera and recording solutions. Specialist cameras, designed by Grundig Engineering, include a 6MP fisheye with IR and a 4K (8MP) box camera. Technological developments used within the wider IP camera range include Sony Exmor CCD sensors with Xarina digital signal processing (DSP) and P-Iris image enhancement. Facial detection and analytics are also built in to several models.
“P-Iris increases the camera’s image contrast, clarity, resolution and depth of field,” explained Andreas Franusic, product manager at Grundig. “Xarina DSP technology combines image signal processing (ISP) with video stream encoding to produce an exceptional wide dynamic range (WDR). This, and a 60 fps setting, makes the Grundig cameras extremely sensitive in low light and reduces motion blur. The IP cameras also remain in colour mode for longer, with improved visibility, before IR illumination is activated.”
On a practical note, Grundig will also be showing its new water-repellent, Rain-Wash coating for the optical surfaces of domes. Rain and dirt simply run off, keeping surfaces clean and preventing condensation, even in damp environments.
The new 4K2K, 8MP box camera delivers outstanding detail at an unprecedented resolution. The 6MP fisheye camera, designed for indoor use, comes with de-warping functionality built in. It simultaneously provides a 4MP 360° stream and secondary, 2MP, de-warped 2 or 4 way stream.
Motorised auto-focus and zoom (AFZ) is featured on some models. IR LED illumination, quad video streams, SD/SDHC card slots, PoE and ONVIF Profile S integration are standard across the range.
