Pyronix have announced the global launch of the detector they believe delivers the alternate solution for any large areas.

The Octopus DQ takes a different approach to detection; instead of fitting various detectors at varying angles to cover large or awkward areas, you fit one that perfectly protects from above. The Octopus DQ also utilises a quad element passive infrared (PIR) sensor, giving better intruder catch performance when compared with traditional dual element ceiling mount PIR sensors. A more cost effective and secure solution for any installation. (more…)

H.265 compression: The Future of Video Surveillance, or One More Choice?

by katieG - on May 18th 2017 - No Comments

In security, there are two warring needs in digital security monitoring. The first need is for high-quality video. After all, having images of a problem isn’t helpful if you can’t get any good detail from it. Being able to identify parties, or read details on items, can be the critical difference between useful information and redundant footage.

The second need in digital security monitoring is storage. Once it is recorded, video needs to be stored, and that takes up both memory space and processor power for streaming. That space and power cost a lot of money. Since this is the case, the size of a video file plays a major role in the costs of any security setup. Finding a balance has not always been easy, but a new codec hopes to reconcile these two issues and strike a new balance. Today, we will explore this and tease out the good, the bad, and situations where h.265 compression just might be the right choice.
