New Topline of IP cameras from Geutebruck at Vegas show

Windhagen, Germany

At the forthcoming ISC West show in Las Vegas Geutebruck Security will be highlighting their new range of Topline high spec network cameras. This series of eight box cameras and a fixed dome camera offer various megapixel resolutions, sensor types, standard colour and true day/night options.
Designed for licence-free integration with its video security systems, these multi-standard cameras include support for the specialist security format H264CCTV which, unlike most H264 implementations, plays back fluid motion video, forwards and backwards, even frame by frame without any gaps. For easy installation, Topline cameras can be powered either from a local supply or centrally by PoE.

Sharing the limelight this year is Argus, a high speed, high precision, pan and tilt head which sports a thermal imaging camera. With IP66/V4A weather and corrosion-proof housings, a dirt and water repellent window, a completely maintenance-free drive system as well as an optional air blast cleaner system, Argus ensures reliable, cost-effective operation even in inhospitable and inaccessible locations such as tunnels or marine and industrial environments.

Other key roles at this year’s display are taken by the high end Geviscope+ video platform whose transcoding function enables dual channel streaming and dynamic live streaming for storage and network savings, and which supports all current compression standards – H.264, H264CCTV, MPEG4CCTV, M-JPEG and ONVIF compliance – as well as audio recording, for analogue and IP cameras. Operated via Pilot, the flexible three-part management console with the latest computer technology and a whole new level of individual operator comfort, convenience and performance, the Geviscope+ is demonstrating Geutebrucks highly reliable video analytics.

Big changes ahead for access control market

Following our recent reports on the Kaba and Dorma merger, and now with the news that Allegion plans to acquire Simonsvoss from HgCapital.  Blake Kozak, Principal Analyst for Security and Building technologies at IHS, predicts that this latest merger may again reshape the access-control market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The merger of Allegion and Simonsvoss would immediately create the second largest company in the EMEA region, after the market leader, Assa Abloy. The merged Kaba and Dorma would then rank third in the region.  But it has to be pointed out that this most recent merger still requires approval, by the German Bundeskartellamt, which prohibited a planned merger of Assa Abloy and Simonsvoss back in 2008.
