March Networks Releases IP Camera Line With Smart Low Bit-Rate Setting
March Networks’ new SE2 Series of IP Cameras include indoor nanodome, outdoor IR dome and indoor IR dome models.
OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada — March Networks announces the release of its SE2 Series of IP cameras.
Delivering 1080p video, the SE2 Series IP cameras incorporate a smart low bit rate (LBR) setting that is said to reduce bandwidth and storage consumption by 50% or more, making the camera line well-suited for businesses with dozens or hundreds of surveillance cameras.
Compatible with all March Networks video recording platforms, the cameras are also easily managed with March Networks’ Command Enterprise video management software. Command Enterprise enables customers to administer the complete video solution more effectively, and benefit from capabilities such as centralized video management, mass camera management and system health monitoring, according to the company.
The SE2 Series cameras are also compatible with third-party video recording systems via the ONVIF Profile S standard.
The SE2 Series comes in three different models:
- SE2 Indoor NanoDome: A low-profile dome with an extra-wide, 134-degree field of view (FOV). In surface mount applications, all wires terminate inside the camera. Other features include a 3-axis gimbal for simple positioning during installation and a 90-degree hallway mode rotation to better capture vertically-oriented scenes.
- SE2 Indoor IR Dome: Utilizes a combination of High Dynamic Range (HDR) and integrated infrared (IR) LEDs. The camera also incorporates hallway mode, remote zoom and focus, and an EMT mount that attaches directly to an unthreaded pipe.
- SE2 Outdoor IR Dome: A ruggedized dome protected by a weather-proof (IP66), vandal-resistant (IK10) enclosure. The camera’s integrated HDR, IR and P-Iris deliver video capture in varying lighting and regardless of an object’s distance within its FOV. Similar to the other SE2 models, the camera incorporates hallway mode. It also includes a 3-axis gimbal and remote zoom and focus.
Each SE2 Series camera comes with a unique QR code that technicians can scan with their smartphone or tablet using March Networks’ free GURU Smartphone Application. The combined functionality enables technicians to access product serial numbers, warranty status, video tutorials and product manuals, run installation audits, submit an express RMA and more, according to the company.
“We are thrilled to add these SE2 Series IP cameras to our portfolio,” says Nathan Dinning, edge devices product manager, March Networks. “They expand the range of IP cameras our customers can choose from, and are a full-featured option for applications such as warehouses, grocery stores and big-box formats with many cameras and few ultra-high definition requirements. They are also our company’s lowest-cost camera offering to date, and we expect the combination of high-performance and affordability will make them a popular choice in new and existing installations.”
