Tyco Security Products Announces New Illustra Pro 2 Megapixel PTZ Camera

The camera features 30x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom as compared to the 20x zoom of the previous model.

Tyco Security Products introduces the new Illustra Pro 2 megapixel 30x pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) camera, offering a 30x optical zoom to deliver forensic detail over greater distances, according to the company.

The new Illustra Pro p/t/z camera offers 30x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom, compared with the 20x zoom of the previous Illustra p/t/z model. The combination of the p/t/z’s optical capability and HD resolution video allows users to read license plate characters at distances of more than 1,000 away from the camera and other identifiable details.

To improve operator control with better precision and control accuracy, Tyco Security Products says the Illustra p/t/z uses zoom adjusted program (ZAP) technology to automatically control the pan and tilt speed in proportion to the amount of zoom used.

Available in indoor and outdoor models, the new Illustra Pro p/t/z delivers a true wide dynamic range ensuring quality surveillance is maintained in the most challenging of lighting conditions. The camera’s clear video quality is maintained during rain, fog or snow through the advanced auto defog feature, while the whiteout highlight reduction feature ensures that car headlights or street lamps do not compromise the image during nighttime surveillance. The 30x p/t/z also supports electronic image stabilization for lower effects of vibrations from wind and other sources when using long range optical magnification.

This Illustra Pro 30x p/t/z introduces a new intelligent guard tour feature using embedded intelligence to autonomously track, zoom in and record events or suspicious activities, allowing the operator to concentrate on other priorities without missing any vital activities. This feature unites motion detection, auto tracking and preset sequences to allow the p/t/z to perform independent of a control room operator. While moving through a preset tour without an operator present, the intelligent guard tour feature enables the camera to deliver the video evidence needed to identify key details, according to the company.

Compatible with American Dynamics VideoEdge and exacqVision video management system (VMS) software and recorders, the Illustra p/t/z camera can be configured into a video security system. Also, a full line of indoor covers and outdoor mounting options are available for quick installation in any setting.
