NXP Semiconductors (News - Alert) brings what it considers its best high-definition video surveillance camera to date to the marketplace. The Advanced ASC884xA and ASC885xA series of video processing high-definition cameras will have all of the capabilities of previous Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, but the data will be transmitted back via a secure Gigabit Ethernet interface.
The new cameras will allow video capture of up to 60 frames per second in full high-definition, but at a much lower amount of necessary power to run the camera.
The new device has been designed to work optimally in virtually any lighting condition.
Rick Dumont, the global marketing director for IP camera products at NXP Semiconductors, sees the Advanced Series as a way to take video surveillance “to the next level” by “enabling stunningly clear HD motion-picture images—even indoors and at night—as well as H.264 High Profile compression at the lowest bit rates to reduce network load and hard disk video storage space.”
With these advancements, he says, HD IP camera makers and OEMs will not have to settle for poor-quality pictures anymore. He also foresees “tremendous” savings from power consumption, video storage, bill of materials and cost of ownership.
The previous analog surveillance cameras will now obviously become outdated, as the images that will be attained will be far superior with the new high-definition technology. These cameras will now allow for sharper facial recognition and much clearer images of a vehicle’s license plate or other characteristics that will aid in the prevention of theft.
The IP camera will allow for access over the Web as well, and will monitor certain situations in real time rather than seeing things with a time lag. The video information will be able for storage as a smaller file, which means it will not take up as much memory space, yet it will not compromise the quality of the video.
