LONDON, September 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Security solutions provider Oncam Grandeye today announced the launch of its Evolution range of next generation 360-degree cameras.
The Evolution range is the first major product release since Oncam acquired Grandeye in July 2012 and it provides a more powerful platform that takes the Company's position as leader in 360-degree imaging to a new level.
Over the next 12 months Oncam Grandeye will be launching a further two 360-cameras in the Evolution range with better imaging and a capability of up to 12 megapixels with full analytics and onboard storage.
The first release in the Evolution range consists of a 5 megapixel camera and includes exciting enhancements, including wide dynamic range, high frame rate, H.264, on-board SD card, supports POE, digital input and output and audio capabilities. As part of a multi-phased rollout, more than 250 of the cameras have already been shipped and many trials are taking place with customers around the world.
Evolution will also come with a range of accessories including pole, pendant and wall mount. This is a new approach for 360-degree cameras and will greatly enhance the ease and speed of installation and not limit the 360 to wall or ceiling mounts.
Innovative modular design and mobile device app with de-warping at client-side.
A differentiating strength of the new Evolution range is its innovative modular design, capable of being mounted on a range of available housings to allow for indoor, outdoor, surface mount and concealed applications.
Rich Pineau, Chief Technology Officer at Oncam Grandeye, said, "Our customers are the driving force behind this new camera range, and we have gone to great lengths to design a camera that not only incorporates the world's finest 360-degree technology, but also its design, simplicity and modular approach, which makes installation simple and useful in a variety of environments and applications."
He added, "The Evolution range will also be supported by the world's first mobile device app with de-warping at the client-side, which really pushes the boundaries of remote viewing of 360."
