by Brianna Crandall — May 1, 2017 — FLIR Systems, Inc., recently announced FLIR United VMS 8.0, the latest version of the company’s flagship video management solution (VMS), along with three high-performance security cameras: the FLIR PT-Series HD (High-Definition) thermal and visible camera system, the FLIR Quasar 4K fixed box camera, and the FLIR Ariel 3MP (3-megapixel) corner camera. All three security cameras integrate with FLIR United VMS 8.0 and expand the company’s end-to-end line of security solutions.
FLIR United VMS 8.0
FLIR United VMS 8.0 is a comprehensive, enterprise-level video management solution for managing video security operations. FLIR United VMS 8.0 manages large and multi-location video operations, and includes FLIR Latitude software, as well as FLIR Horizon and FLIR Meridian network video recorders.
FLIR United VMS 8.0 delivers a more secure system through stronger online security credential requirements, says the company. A simplified system installation process and streamlined camera discovery reportedly make integration with FLIR products easy. Also, FLIR United VMS 8.0’s open platform design allows for integration with third-party technologies and is customizable and scalable for any size deployment, from small retailers to large enterprises to critical infrastructure.
FLIR PT-Series HD
The FLIR PT-Series HD is a dual-sensor camera system designed to provide superior, long-range perimeter intrusion detection regardless of lighting and environmental conditions. The high-speed, pan-tilt camera provides quick and accurate threat verification. The FLIR PT-Series HD offers either a cooled or uncooled 640×480 resolution thermal camera with a 1080p HD visible camera.
Multiple high-performance thermal lenses are available, including optical zoom lenses up to 14X. The HD visible camera also features a 30X optical zoom lens with autofocus and low light capabilities. The FLIR PT-Series HD integrates with FLIR United VMS 8.0 and other major VMS software providers.
FLIR Quasar 4K fixed box camera
The FLIR Quasar 4K fixed box multiple-resolution camera can be programmed to switch from 4K daytime mode to 1080p lowlight-nighttime mode to provide optimum, continuous performance.
Its compact design allows for the use of specialized camera housings, ranging from explosion to extreme weatherproof, and can accommodate a range of lenses from super-wide to telephoto. The Quasar 4K fixed box is well-suited for high-traffic areas, such as large venues and transportation hubs.
FLIR Ariel 3MP corner camera
The FLIR Ariel 3MP corner camera features a 3-megapixel visible camera that provides ceiling-to-floor and wall-to-wall viewing. The corner camera also includes a built-in microphone for audio monitoring and discrete night vision illumination for monitoring low-light to totally dark locations.
FLIR Ariel 3MP also features an impact-resistant, vandal-proof, flush-mount housing, making it ideal for locations such as medical facilities and prisons where the safety of at-risk occupants is essential.
FLIR President and CEO Andy Teich stated:
The latest FLIR United VMS offering provides a flexible, end-to-end security management solution that allows customers to easily scale to their security needs. With the addition of several new high-performance security cameras, including the FLIR PT-Series HD system ideal for perimeter security, FLIR expands its broad security product offerings and further advances our presence in enterprise security.
