MAY 2011 – MEL Secure Systems, the leading developer of surveillance and security solutions, has announced the immediate availability of Domehawk HD, a new rapid deployment CCTV solution. Incorporating the latest mega-pixel technology, Domehawk HD is available with either a full zoom or fixed lens and will help cut crime and reduce the incidence of anti-social behaviour in a wide range of environments.
Domehawk HD features a powerful day/night 5 megapixel camera. It delivers compressed video streams with resolutions of up to 2048 x 1536 (3MEGA) at 8fps and 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080P) at full frame rate. The camera provides excellent contrast for use in low light conditions and has built-in digital noise reduction to minimise video interference and the triggering of false alarms.
According to MEL Secure Systems: “Domehawk HD delivers eight times more information than can be achieved with standard definition camera systems enabling more data to be extracted from images for improved facial and number plate identification. It is also available at a similar cost to standard definition systems making it more affordable for a wide range of security and safety applications.”
Domehawk HD is also equipped with an onboard DVR with the capacity to store up to 32GB of HD video images. Recordings can be quickly and easily downloaded via Wi-Fi or 3G using a mobile phone, laptop or tablet computer.
An on-board rechargeable lithium ion battery pack allows Domehawk HD to be rapidly deployed at any location without requiring an external power supply. This battery enables the camera to be operational for more than 48 hours and can be recharged more than 1000 times.
