VideoIQ Introduces iCST Streaming Cameras and Encoders

VideoIQ's new line is designed for systems with central storage, features both standard and high definition models, and comes standard with VideoIQ's award winning analytics

BEDFORD, Mass., March 16 -- VideoIQ, the leader in video surveillance innovation, today introduced iCST streaming cameras and encoders. iCST streaming cameras and encoders are designed for use in environments with central storage and 3rd party video management systems.  All feature VideoIQ's award winning video analytics for the most accurate real-time threat detection.

"VideoIQ is a Milestone Solutions Partner whose offerings are integrated with our XProtect(TM) open platform IP video management software," said Eric Fullerton, CSMO at Milestone Systems. "When it comes to getting the most out of video surveillance, intelligence from such advanced analytics can make a significant difference, and HD megapixel technology expands the capabilities vastly."

VideoIQ iCST streaming cameras and encoders build upon the success of VideoIQ's iCVR cameras and encoders, which have achieved rapid market adoption and industry award recognition.  With VideoIQ's embedded, adaptive analytics, iCST cameras and encoders automatically calibrate in minutes, delivering superior real-time threat detection while reducing installation time, resources, complexity and cost.

"VideoIQ is an OnSSI partner whose products are integrated with our Ocularis PSIM and Video Management Solutions," said Jeff Knapp, Vice President of Marketing at OnSSI.  "OnSSI is always interested in adding value to our end-users and the new VideoIQ line of iCST cameras and encoders deliver comprehensive analytics to our joint customers out of the box."

  Features of the VideoIQ iCST cameras and encoders include:

  --  The most advanced video analytics in the industry:  iCST camera and
      encoder real-time threat detection relies on VideoIQ's award winning
      adaptive analytics.  Uniquely distinguishing people, vehicles and
      boats from other objects, animals and scene movement, VideoIQ's
      adaptive analytics deliver the most accurate threat detection on the
      market.  The cameras and encoders issue alarms only when there is a
      viable threat, saving time and money by enabling security personnel to
      focus only on events of high interest.
  --  Available resolutions to 1080P: The VideoIQ iCST camera and encoder
      line includes the iCST-MP, delivering dramatic 1080P video at up to 30
      frames per second.  With almost seven times the resolution of a
      standard VGA camera, iCST-MP customers can digitally zoom in for
      superior detail, or cover nearly three times the horizontal area with
      a single camera - reducing costs by allowing customers to cover the
      same area with fewer cameras.  And with the only on-camera megapixel
      analytics, customers can take advantage of over two times the range of
      D1 analytics.  Standard resolution iCST camera models feature powerful
      Pixim® wide dynamic range day/night sensors for outstanding video
      quality in the broadest range of conditions.
  --  Self-calibration: VideoIQ's adaptive analytics are 100%
      self-calibrating, eliminating the need to tune or adjust the analytics
      during installation.  VideoIQ's adaptive analytics also continuously
      calibrate, getting more accurate with each object detected. As a
      result, customers gain the highest level of accuracy on the market
      while reducing ongoing maintenance time and resources.
  --  Ready for any environment.  VideoIQ's iCST family of cameras and
      encoders include vandal proof IP66 rated outdoor and indoor domes, box
      cameras and single channel encoders.  A full line of mounting
      accessories is also available for any indoor or outdoor use.
  --  Open Integration.  All VideoIQ products are integrated with leading
      video management systems, command and control integration platforms,
      and access control systems.  For a complete list of integrations,

"For little more than the cost of a conventional IP or HD camera, customers with centralized storage are now able to deploy a proactive surveillance system."  said Scott Schnell, President and CEO of VideoIQ.  "By delivering real-time alerts, iCST cameras and encoders allow operations to rapidly assess and mitigate security threats before incidents occur - while still capturing high quality forensic evidence."


The VideoIQ iCST streaming cameras and encoders are available now, with the iCST-MP megapixel camera scheduled to be available in late summer, 2010. For more information, contact VideoIQ at 888-351-1758 or
