congregated at the Sands Expo and Convention
Center, here, late last month for the ISC West Conference.
The show hosted more than 950 exhibitors during
its March 27-30 run, which is up from 901 in the 2011
show, an ISC West spokesman told TWICE. This
show floor space was also up 20,000 square feet from
the previous year.
TWICE has rounded up some of the home security
products that were unveiled at the show, along with other recent introductions into the category.
Samsung Techwin America
went to Sin City
with a number of new products, including a line of
IR cameras, outdoor domes and bullet cameras.
The iPOLiS SNV-7080R dome is an outdoor
3-megapixel network video camera that provides
16:9 FullHD images and 15 IR LED
illuminators for an IR viewable distance of
75 feet, even in total darkness, the company
The camera includes a motorized
3-8.55mm (2.8x) vari-focal lens to allow
zoom and focus settings to be adjusted
remotely after installation. Multiple resolutions
The iPOLiS SNV-5080R fixed dome
offers resolutions up to 1.3 megapixels,
including 720p HD output, with an IR
viewable range up to 50 feet. The H.264/
MJPEG/MPEG-4 multiple codecs include
multiple streaming, using H.264
compression for bandwidth-friendly,
high-resolution images, Samsung
Both of these domes are IP66 environmentally
rated for severe weather conditions.
The iPOLiS SNO-7080R is an outdoor
bullet-style 3-megapixel network
video surveillance camera that
has 32 infrared LEDs, providing
a reported viewing range of
up to 150 feet in total darkness.
Features include a 2.8s vari-focal
motorized zoom lens, 16:9 FullHD
image capture with wide dynamic
range, and a dual H.264 and MPEG codec.
It too is IP66 environmentally rated
for severe or varying weather conditions.

used the show to announce a
line of wide dynamic range (WDR) cameras said
to provide clear images in extreme light conditions
containing both very bright and dark
areas in the field of view.
The 1080p AV2116 and 3-megapixel
AV3116 WDR cameras feature day/night
and auto-iris options. By combining long
and short exposures in the same video
frame, the cameras provides the greatest
amount of detail in both bright and
dark areas of the picture at the same
time, Arecont Vision said.
Other features include an H.264
(MPEG-4 Part 10) and MJPEG dual
encoder, use of a binning technique to
improve low-light performance, flexible
cropping, bit-rate control, multistreaming,
forensic zooming, power
over Ethernet or auxiliary power
(12-48vDC/24vAC), and Physical
Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) and
Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF)
Toshiba America Information Systems’
introductions at ISC West included
the IK-WP41A pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) IP dome
camera, meant for broad surveillance coverage
The device features FullHD resolution,
20x optical zoom, 360 degree continuous
pan for overview surveillance, and high-speed
PTZ for moving objects.
It has an IP66-rated weatherproof
housing, power over Ethernet, low-light
sensitivity down to 0.3 lux, H.264 video
compression, 128 advanced presets and
eight privacy masks. It became available last month.
