Princeton, NJ (November 17, 2011) – SightLogix, the leading supplier of outdoor area and perimeter security video systems, announces a new generation SightSensor thermal camera that takes thermal video analytics to mainstream pricing. The new SightSensor builds upon its heritage of accuracy in the outdoors to produce the clearest thermal images and even better analytics at a greatly reduced cost.
This significant price reduction brings thermal analytic capability mainstream with pricing per foot on par with fence sensors and visible cameras with analytics. This has been achieved by doubling the SightSensor’s on-board image processing, reducing the costs of the electronics and housing and streamlining manufacturing. New precision video analytics deliver more accurate detection in difficult outdoor environments, while image contrast enhancement technology provides clear, detailed thermal images both night and day.
“The new generation Thermal SightSensor takes the most accurate outdoor security available and makes it affordable for mainstream markets,” said John Romanowich, President and CEO, SightLogix. “The SightSensor brings thermal video analytics to price parity with visible cameras and other modalities for perimeter security.”
Cost-effective for both shorter (90m) and longer (600m) ranges, the new SightSensor outdoor thermal camera leverages powerful on-board video processing for high Probability of Detect (PD) and low Nuisance Alarm Rates (NAR) while providing crisp, clear images night and day. The Thermal SightSensor consists of a thermal imager, complete with lens optics, electronic stabilization, image contrast enhancement, video analytics software, camera control, and geospatial target tracking within a ruggedized, NEMA 4X nitrogen-purged housing.
