The future of thermal security cameras became reality as Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd., a leading manufacturer of thermal imaging systems, announced that they will be unveiling their new Sii™ OP thermal security camera later this month. Based on Linux OS, the Sii OP is defined as the first thermal camera with a truly open embedded software platform, boasting an incredibly easy installation and a dedicated Software Development Kit (SDK) for seamless third party integration.
Security cameras have come a long way in recent years. Once the realm of traditional CCTV systems, more security projects these days are built around thermal technology due to the 24/7, all weather detection capabilities of these devices. The need for better target detection has created a demand for thermal cameras that will be able to integrate with end-point analytics software that facilitates easier target detection and tracking.
"With our growing line of Vumii® thermal imaging systems, we are always seeking ways to reinvent thermal imaging and bring new technologies to market," stated Amit Mattatia, President & CEO of Opgal. "The Sii OP introduces new standards to the security industry, by offering a cost effective option and a truly open platform to system integrators and software developers alike. This is yet a further proof of Opgal's ability to leverage its vast experience in creating game-changing products."
Equipped with both thermal and HD visible-light channels for day and night surveillance, Sii OP meets global ONVIF standards to ensure interoperability of hardware and software products for easy integration to both existing and new infrastructures, regardless of manufacturer.
Sii OP will be available from Opgal via a growing network of solution providers and distributors in all major countries, and will be offered with pre-integration to some of the leading VMS and analytics software in the market. Opgal will unveil the Sii OP at the IFSEC exhibition to be held June 21-23, 2016 at the ExCeL London, UK convention centre.
