Digital Watchdog Demonstrates Multiple 4K Sensors in Single Camera Housing at ASIS
New 16K and 8MP panoramic cameras feature groundbreaking design that delivers four 4K streams at 30 frames per second.
Atlanta â€• Digital Watchdog, a leader in DVRs, surveillance cameras and management software demonstrated at ASIS four user-configurable 4K and 1080p sensors in single camera housings that deliver simultaneous video streams at 30fps. The groundbreaking capability is available in the company’s new 16K and 8-megapixel cameras.
“The merits of multisensory, high-resolution cameras for general surveillance are many, but the Achilles’ heel has been the frame rate,” says Ian Johnston, founder and CEO of Innovative Security Designs (ISD) and CTO of Digital Watchdog. “Our breakthrough makes it possible to maintain the frame rate of the individual sensors while delivering the four streams as a single drop on the network. As a result, a single camera containing four 4K sensors delivers the four streams at 30fps each. Our technology also makes it possible for an 8MP panoramic camera to provide four 1080p streams at 30fps.”
The new panoramic cameras allow users to arrange the four independent sensors in what the manufacturer says are nearly limitless configurations in the housing, including 360-, 180- and 270-degree coverage. Each sensor can be customized with a lens to match the application. The cameras also include edge technology, allowing the user to choose server cameras or slaves depending upon coverage and network requirements.
Digital Watchdog’s user-configurable panoramic cameras are expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2015.
