Scallop Releases 7MB Camera, Invests in New Personnel

The new horizontal D7-180XR records in full-color, high resolution throughout its 180-degree field of view.

BOSTON – Scallop Imaging, a video imaging solutions provider, announces the addition of key sales personnel and new distribution relationships that are designed to propel the company toward continued growth and the development of new technology.

Scallop has expanded its line of distributed imaging technology with the new horizontal D7-180XR, a 7-megapixel surveillance camera that records in full-color, high resolution throughout its 180-degree field of view. The camera is ideal for mounting on buses, trains and emergency or military vehicles, as well as other markets where a horizontal form factor is required, according to the company. The new camera may also be deployed in traditional stationary settings.

While all of Scallop’s vision systems capture video up to 15 fps, Scallop has increased its full resolution (5180 x 1280 pixel) stream from 1 fps to 3 fps for all of the company’s surveillance products. To conserve bandwidth, the displayed video stream may be adjusted to a 15 fps high-definition (1280 x 720 pixels) stream, with up to four zoom windows “extracted” from the full resolution video stream.

This combination provides the highest zoom capabilities (up to 4x) and lower bandwidth usage, according to the company. The advancement includes changes to the price of the D7-180 and M6-200 cameras. Pricing for the D7-180 has changed from $1,500 to $1,299 MSRP, and pricing for the M6-200 went from $3,499 to $2,999 MSRP.

The company added Account Executive Mike Guarino to the team, bringing years of sales, business development and data analysis experience to the company. Previously, Guarino worked as an inside sales channel account executive and sales development representative with Axis Communications. He also has worked as a data analyst for Craneware Insight.

Scallop also has partnered with several new manufacturer’s rep firms to aid in market growth and to offer expertise in expanding its market reach. Included: FM Valenti, Intermountain Marketing, AE Sales Midwest and Charles & Associates Marketing. Additionally, Scallop has added two new distributors: GA, which will serve the Caribbean and Latin America, and Communications Supply Corp. (CSC).

“Scallop Imaging continues to develop cutting-edge, scalable and cost effective technology solutions to aid in problem solving in our targeted vertical markets,” says Steve Gorski, chief sales officer, Scallop Imaging. “Our focus has remained on continually innovating our product line to drive sustained growth, while delivering solutions that solve real-world problems to support the next evolution of the company.”

Scallop Imaging will showcase the horizontal D7-180XR during ASIS 2014, to be held Sept. 29-Oct. 2, in Atlanta, among other wares. Conference attendees can meet with Gorski and other members of the Scallop team at booth #2250.
