FLIR Adds Mini-Dome, Bullet Cameras to Quasar Lineup
FLIR says the Quasar Premium Mini-Dome and Premium Bullet cameras deliver the image quality, integration and cybersecurity features required for critical infrastructure sites and remote facilities.
ARLINGTON, Va. — FLIR Systems announces the availability of two new visible-camera options as part of its full lineup of Quasar security cameras.
Designed for use in demanding indoor and outdoor environments, the new FLIR Quasar Premium Mini-Dome and Quasar Premium Bullet deliver the forensic image quality, tight integration and advanced cybersecurity features required for critical infrastructure sites, remote facilities, or large areas requiring close monitoring, according to the company.
FLIR says the new Quasar Premium lineup offers the highest quality video surveillance in the product family. The FLIR Quasar Premium Mini-Dome is available with 5MP HD or 4K Ultra-HD resolutions and the FLIR Quasar Premium Bullet series is available with 4MP Quad HD and 4K Ultra-HD resolutions, coupled with a variety of lens options for extended range performance for perimeter security.
Both cameras have an SD-card for on-edge recording and redundancy, while also meeting the H.265 video compression standard to minimize network bandwidth and storage space.
The FLIR Quasar Premium Mini-Dome series is IP66-rated for dust and waterproof protection and can be ceiling- or wall-mounted in minutes. In no-light conditions, the unit can provide up to 40 meters of visibility via on-board near-infrared illumination.
Improved three-shutter wide dynamic range (WDR) (130db) offers optimal light balance in scenarios with both light and dark spots, according to the company. The camera has an IK10 vandal-proof rating and is available with an optional smoke bubble accessory used to obscure camera position.
The FLIR Quasar Premium Bullet series is also IK10 vandal-proof and designed to be permanently installed, typically pole-mounted, for video surveillance. It covers up to 60 meters of visibility via on-board near-infrared illumination and also features three-shutter WDR (130db).
The camera is IP67-rated for dustproof and waterproof protection, while offering extended operating temperature range from -40° Celsius to 60° Celsius (-40° to 140° Fahrenheit) for use in extreme conditions.
Similar to other Quasar products, the Quasar Premium Bullet and Premium Dome editions are National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)-compliant and include industry standard security protocols and additional cybersecurity enhancements.
FLIR says these features include unique protection from log-in attacks, hardware and software authentication, and encrypted communication to help keep facilities safe from cyber threats.
They maintain open platform compatibility and can be used with a large variety of third-party VMS solutions or FLIR United VMS. They also include bi-directional audio and operator control of input/output devices for remote monitoring and responding to events.
The cameras include the FLIR accessory and mounting ecosystem. They also support a 1GB network for better streaming and reduced bandwidth issues. Both cameras also include customized video flow options for live and recorded video, including frames-per-second output adjustment and encoding for extra streams.
