Among several releases, reveals and surprises at the ITEXPO Miami, Grandstream Networks (News - Alert), a company highly regarded for its IP voice/video telephony and video surveillance solutions, gained great rounds of applause for adding three high-definition IP outdoor cameras and a new free video monitoring/recording management software to its GXV36xx Series of IP video surveillance cameras.
Designed for both business and residential applications, Grandstream's new GXV cameras are made to withstand harsh outdoor conditions relating to temperature, light and weather.
"We're pleased to add these new IP cameras and the video monitoring and recording software to our growing portfolio of surveillance solutions so business and residential customers can select the solution to best fit their security application needs," David Li (News - Alert), chief executive officer of Grandstream said in a statement.
The GXV3672_FHD and GXV3672_HD IP cameras are two outdoor day/night tube cameras, with IP66 weatherproof casing and ONVIF compliance that feature infrared (IR) capability for advanced nighttime and low-light video surveillance recording. The GXV3672_FHD includes a 3.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor for a 1080p HD resolution, while the GXV3672_HD features a 1.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor for 720p HD resolution.
Both models provide users with an invaluable day/night surveillance tool for securing premises and delivering solid evidence of events that occur especially in darkness. Apart from the high-resolution black/white images produced at night, the IR cameras are noted to deliver vibrant HD color images during the day, even under dim light conditions.
The GXV3662_FHD HD IP camera is an expanded version of Grandstream's GXV3662_HD and winner of TMC (News - Alert) Lab's 2011 Innovation Award. The camera features a 3.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor for full 1080p HD resolution. This weatherproof, vandal-resistant and tamper-proof full HD IP dome camera is for challenging outdoor surveillance applications.
Also, all of Grandstream IP video surveillance cameras feature integrated PoE, H.264 real-time video compression with excellent image clarity, embedded video analytics, industry leading SIP/VoIP for two-way audio and video streaming, support advanced notification and alert options, built-in high performance streaming servers and more.
Grandstream also announced the availability of an upgraded version of its free GSurf video monitoring and recording software for use with all GXV IP cameras.
The GXV3672_HD, GXV3672_FHD, and GXV3662_FHD will be available for $329, $499 and $599 respectively from mid-February 2013. GSurf Pro will also be available for free download on the Grandstream website by mid-February 2013.
