2N & LenelS2

2N’s OnGuard system receives Lensel2 factory certification

2N Telekomunikace has announced that it has received LenelS2 factory certification and joined the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).

All intercoms with the 2N OS, including the 2N IP Style, interface with the OnGuard access control system, linking access, alarm, video and audio events.

2N’s Chief Executive Officer, Michal Kratochvil, said: “The interface between 2N’s IP intercoms and the OnGuard access control system is a big step forward for our company. It enables security operators to monitor their intercoms through one comprehensive security platform, making their lives easier and helping them keep their building safe.”



Turbine Mini Video Intercom (TMIV-1+)

Zenitel has announced the addition of the new Turbine Mini with Video to its portfolio of Turbine intercom and intelligent communication solutions.

The new TMIV-1+ intercom provides surveillance, two-way communications, and remote entry-control in a low-profile size. It also incorporates Zenitel’s HD voice technology, with a 10W speaker and amplifier and active noise cancelling capabilities.

Product Manager, Safety and Security, at Zenitel, Thomas Halvorsen, said: “Security users need a low-profile intercom solution with high-definition video and high-quality audio. With the Zenitel Turbine Mini, we’ve done that.”

Security teams can use the TMIV-1+ to trigger audio warnings or recordings with a VMS. In addition, users can record hazardous events and send instant alerts in the event of an emergency such as a break-in or fire.

Axis Communications


Axis Communications has launched the AXIS M5000-G PTZ, a multi-directional 15 MP camera, offering situational awareness of indoor areas up to 400 m² (4300 ft²).

According to Axis, the camera can communicate with as many as six devices in a system setup.

The camera also features autofocus capabilities as well as indication lights to help deter antisocial and criminal behaviour.

Key features include:

  • 3x5MP sensors for situational awareness
  • Covers indoor areas up to 400 m² (4300 ft²)
  • 10x optical zoom with HDTV 1080p

2MP compact 12x zoom PTZ dome

IDIS has launched a new 2MP compact 12x zoom PTZ dome, said to be the smallest in its class with high-performance features and smart functions.

According to IDIS, a key benefit of the new camera is that engineers do not need to remove the camera bubble, avoiding the risk of dust ingress and image quality compromise.

The camera can be attached to a wide choice of mounts, and a triple safety wire structure means safe installation and maintenance, making it an ideal choice for retail, hotels, and commercial office settings where wide-area uninterrupted surveillance is critical.



Unified Surveillance Platform (USP)

Quantum Corporation has announced the Unified Surveillance Platform (USP), a software platform for recording and storing video surveillance data.

The software is said to run on any standard server to give security integrators flexibility and provide a path to subscription-based revenue and managed services with a subscription licensing model.

Key features include:

  • Fast video ingest and instant playback using intelligent cache management optimised for VMS applications
  • Ability to create storage pools from mixed media types
  • Built-in data centre-grade digital security to prevent unauthorised access.

Ross Fuji, General Manager, Strategic Markets for Quantum, said: “I’m encouraged by the momentum we are seeing in this business and the opportunity for growth in video surveillance data management. We are bringing even more differentiated value to market with our USP software, optimised for video data and Smart NVRs.”



T-Suite Image Processing Suite

Security imaging company, RaySecur, has launched its T-Suite Image Processing Platform for MailSecur scanners.

According to RaySecur, the T-Suite update produces higher frame rates that enhance image realism and sharpen object edges for better detection.

Alex Sappok, Ph.D., CEO at RaySecur, said: “Our teams are continuously working to enhance image resolution and improve mail package threat detection so that our customers can detect even the smallest threats quickly, avoiding costly shutdowns and remediation.”

MailSecur will also be featured in the Johnson Controls Security Products Innovation Room (Lido 3004) as part of its C-CURE integrated security management platform, meaning scan results can now automatically trigger configurable responses across building systems.
