There are scores of products nominated in the Security Industry Association-sponsored New Product Showcase being judged at ISC West. Today: Bosch, Cernium, Dedicated Micro, Hirsch and Zebra Technologies are featured today.

From Bosch, the MIC400 Infrared PTZ Camera is a ruggedized speed dome with built-in infrared illumination. Black Diamond technology delivers high quality night-vision video up to 180 feet for improved incident monitoring and asset protection in total darkness. Even illumination eliminates hot spots and underexposure, producing the clear picture that security systems require to provide reliable 24/7 surveillance -- making the camera an ideal choice for many locations, including utility sites, ports and commercial buildings.
From Cernium, CheckVideo is an intelligent video verification product that seamlessly integrates with central alarm station software to dramatically reduce false alarms while decreasing the burden to operators. CheckVideo uses powerful Cernium video analytics technology to determine if a real person is present, greatly reducing false alarms triggered by motion alone. Simple to install, the IP standards-based CheckVideo solution connects to existing cameras, requires minimal set up, and is priced comparably to “standard” video encoders.
From Dedicated Micros, the hybrid DV-IP series of video servers with a unique distributed network architecture allows fail safe continuous recording with on-demand access to all parts of the system. These devises seamlessly integrate analog, IP, and megapixel resolution cameras. The design scales to thousands of video sources with no per-channel software license fees and the high definition (1080i) HDMI monitor support, analytics capabilities, IT management tools, and embedded real-time operating system on solid state memory offer improved performance and value.
