IC Realtime Embraces UL’s 2802 Performance Testing Standard for Camera Image Quality

IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor is enthusiastic about UL's new testing standard

IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor believes a standard is crucial to keeping manufacturer’s spec claims honest

Pompano Beach, FL – January 17, 2014 – IC Realtime, a global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced visual surveillance solutions for the residential, commercial, military and government sectors, embraces UL’s 2802 Performance Testing Standard for Camera Image Quality.

In the works for more than two years — and released last September — the new standard defines a method to assess video image quality through a series of performance based tests that are conducted on production digital cameras.

Cameras are rated (on a scale of 0 thru 100) on the following parameters: image resolution; distortion; relative illumination; dynamic range; maximum frame rate; gray level; sensitivity; bad pixel count and veiling glare.

”A standard for testing camera performance is crucial in keeping everyone’s claims honest,” says
IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor, adding “For years IC Realtime’s test labs have been evaluating competitor’s cameras and the amount of deception that we’ve witnessed would blow your mind! I mean cameras that come no where even close to what manufacturer’s state as specifications. It’s truly unfair to the end-user and in the end the integrator’s reputation is put in jeopardy.”

Sailor cautions manufacturers “If you want to compete in my marketplace you’d better follow through and have UL certify your camera’s performance.”

To help create the UL 2802 standard, IC Realtime worked closely with UL, including submitting its B-2000 2-MegaPixel IP Bullet camera to use as part of the testing development process. According to UL, the camera achieved high scores on many of the performance tests, with a certification and the results expected to be published shortly.

For more information on IC Realtime’s products, please contact IC Realtime at 954.772.5327.

For all IC Realtime media inquiries, contact Paul Muto at paul@mutocomm.com or phone 631.849.4301.

ICE Cable Systems Now Offering Alarm Wire in Their Big Mouth Payout Box

Company aims to help installers reduce average wire pull-time on every single alarm job by incorporating a heavily reinforced box with a special cable-wind, massive pay-out hole and ascending/descending foot markers

Los Angeles, CA – January 16, 2014 – ICE Cable Systems — a leading manufacturer of premium low-voltage wire and cable products serving the Audio Video, Alarm and Security, Commercial, Electrical Contracting and Data Center channels – is now offering alarm wire in their renowned Big Mouth Payout (BMP) box.

The BMP box is constructed of ultra-durable, weather resistant cardboard (with reinforced handles) that is burst-tested to withstand 21 kilograms of force, far surpassing the typical alarm wire boxes on the market today.

BMP has been a popular seller for ICE Cable Systems for category, speaker, coax, control and structured cables because its 4-inch payout hole and proprietary winding pattern work in tandem to eliminate everyday pull-problems like kinking, knotting, recoil and tangling.

For additional installer convenience, ICE Cable Systems’ alarm wire incorporates ascending and descending foot-markers, making it effortless for the integrator to identify how much cable has been used and how much remains.

“Because alarm wire is a commodity item naturally the focus of many vendors has been to keep prices competitive,” says Chris Wyllie, principal of S.E.A.L Solutions, a metro-NY AV integration firm that installs residential security and surveillance systems on a regular basis. “The problem is that in order to keep the prices down, the majority of boxes are cheaply made, easily getting destroyed in the back of the work van and/or on the jobsite. Trying to pull cable out of a damaged box is a nightmare. The fact that ICE Cable Systems has thought this through with their BMP box is going to benefit a lot of installers.”

“If we can help installers reduce average pull-time by 15 percent per job, that’s huge,” says ICE Cable Systems President Brian Rizzo. “It means that we are helping them to move onto other aspects of the job faster. Spend a day walking in the shoes of one of these guys – one less problem to have to deal with is a big deal.”

The following ICE Cable Systems alarm wires are now available with BMP: 22-2/ Solid;
22-2/Stranded; 24-4 Solid and 24-4 Stranded (and many in runs as long as 1,000 feet).

Founded in 2004 by president Brian Rizzo, ICE Cable Systems is a leading manufacturer of premium low-voltage wire and cable products serving the Audio Video, Alarm and Security, Commercial, Electrical Contracting and Data Center channels.

JVC Unveils New Simulation Projector, Alternate Light Source at I/ITSEC 2013

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., will introduce its new DLA-2400ZG projector with e-shift technology and demonstrate an alternate light source for projectors at I/ITSEC 2013 (Booth 1419), which runs Dec. 2-5 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

The DLA-VS2400ZG delivers a 5.1 megapixel equivalent image via JVC’s proprietary e-shift technology, along with 18,000:1 native contrast ratio and a minimum of 900 ANSI lumens. It offers two HDMI inputs, as well as RS-232C and LAN connectivity for remote access and control, and its unique 120 Hz input interface means reduced image generator (IG) hardware requirements.

JVC will also showcase its newly developed alternate light source technology at I/ITSEC. Ideal for the simulation market, it preserves the native contrast ratio and dynamic range of images, with no restrictions on mounting orientation. Plus, it provides years of operation with reduced maintenance requirements.

“JVC continues to explore new technologies to improve images and performance,” said John Havens, marketing manager, JVC Visual Systems Division. “Our engineers are addressing the growing demand for a different type of illumination in future projects, which provides a more efficient light source without sacrificing image quality.”

The DLA-2400ZG is available now and includes a 2x zoom lens with manual focus and lens shift. The new projector is also available without a lens (DLA-VS2400G).
