CCTV - Vicon & IQinVision merge
Who are IQinVision?
Vicon, a longstanding CCTV and VMS partner of FTL Secure Solutions recently completed an anticipated merger with IQinVision. This is very exciting news for FTL Secure Solutions as it gives us access to an extensive range of HD and IP CCTV solutions, alongside our current hardware range.
But who are they? IQinVision has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing the IQeye line of HD megapixel IP cameras since 1998. A world leader in IP network camera products, IQinVision is renowned for image quality, stability, and reliability in the harshest environments. ONVIF and PSIA compliant, IQeye cameras are integrated with all leading Network Video Recorders (NVRs), and are backed by the most comprehensive warranty program in the industry. The company's products are widely deployed in banking, city surveillance, commercial/industrial, critical infrastructure, education, gaming, government/law enforcement, healthcare, retail, and transportation applications.
What impact will this have?
It's certainly an exciting development. Whilst FTL Secure Solutions take a consultative approach to CCTV design, we recognise the benefits to us and to our customers of having direct relationship with leading CCTV companies. The IQinVision range adds a host of complementary CCTV solutions to the existing vicon ViconNet platform. This means we now have access to a more diverse range of high definition CCTV cameras with direct integration onto Vicon's Video Management System.
The future of high definition CCTV
IQinVision offer some of the most advanced CCTV solutions currently available on the market. One of the standout solutions is the 4K Sentinel HD IP camera. With a built-in dual core processor, local analytics, adanced low-light technology and resolution from 12MP to 4K, this is an impressive new breed of camera. Whilst specialist cameras such as the 4K Sentinel are generally priced at a premium, the picture quality is so advanced that they can often replace 3 or 4 legacy analogue cameras, reducing the overall cost.
