LILIN North America seeks to turn up their resolution to meet the increasing demand for sharper video surveillance images. The American entity of IP video provider Merit LILIN has introduced its first 4K Ultra HD camera, the model UHG1182.
Seen as a major breakthrough in IP video surveillance, the 12.0 megapixel CMOS camera delivers 3840 x 2160 pixel pictures at 30 frames-per-second, or four times the resolution of HDTV 1080p, with razor-sharp detail and brilliant saturated colors. Because it is capable of capturing detailed images across expansive areas, it is suited for parking lots, airports, casinos, and city surveillance. According to recent statistics, approximately 80% of criminal acts at business offices and shopping malls occur in parking lots, highlighting the need for improved 4K surveillance.
The UHG1182 upholds the LILIN tradition of video excellence by featuring HDR (high dynamic range) mode, IR-cut filter for day/night imaging, and 4K True H.264 AVC High Profile Video Compression. Bandwidth can be efficiently managed by recording in 4K, while viewing the live video stream in 4K on a 4K TV monitor. When using a standard HDTV monitor, users can zoom-in and greatly enhance targeted areas of the overall scene because of the exceptionally high resolution. In addition, the camera’s 16:9 aspect ratio provides a widescreen field of view for increased coverage of the monitored space.
Rounding out the 4K camera’s features are 3D noise reduction to suppress video artifacts and improve fidelity; 2D wide dynamic range for clearer pictures in challenging light conditions; support for digital PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom); and tamper/audio and motion detection alarms. Couple this with the ability to view and replay video remotely using the LILIN Viewer application, and you have a combination of features that cannot be beat.
