Johnson Controls Unveils Flex IR PTZ Camera for Enhanced Resolution and Control

Johnson Controls has developed the Illustra Flex IR PTZ camera with zoom and control capabilities to handle even most challenging lighting conditions.

Illustra Flex IR PTZ indoor and outdoor cameras feature a 30x optical and 12x digital magnification to resolve scene details at up to 1000 feet. The IR illuminators on the outdoor model allow for a night scene illumination of up to 150 meters.

Packaged in a bubble-free, environmentally sealed, and vandal-resistant design, the Illustra Flex IR PTZ line “maximizes video quality at any tilt angle,” according to a Johnson Controls press release.

Illustra IntelliZip “provides powerful bandwidth management beyond H.264 and H.265, reducing network bandwidth and video storage requirements,” according to the company announcement.

This embedded technology continuously monitors and optimizes system streaming parameters to match the level of activity within the camera’s field of view, offsetting the added video storage required when streaming at 4K resolution.

The Illustra Flex cameras feature True Day/Night and True Wide Dynamic Range for balanced images in challenging lighting conditions. The Flex IR PTZ adheres to the security standards of the Tyco Cyber Protection Product Security Program.

The holistic cyber approach begins at initial design concept, continues through product development, and is supported through deployment.

Other Johnson Controls Updates

Earlier this year, Johnson Controls introduced the Deep Intelligence network video recorder (NVR), which will “provide the foundation for self-training analytics and, eventually, artificial intelligence,” according to the company announcement.

The hardware offers “highly accurate people-counting and tracking from an overhead view by distinguishing between humans and objects in the camera’s field of view,” according to the Johnson Controls press release.

When combined with the full suite of analytics available through VideoEdge, as well as the command and control of the victor video management system, “users are able to access insightful business data,” according to the Johnson Controls announcement.

This includes crowd formation, heat mapping, perimeter protection and license plate recognition.

The network video recorder “manages analytic reporting with confidence via a graphic processing unit that optimizes performance beyond standard video intelligence,” according to a Johnson Controls press release.
