Alternative Security’s Network Cameras

Alternative Security cameras deliver crystal-clear live video streaming under challenging conditions due to the many built-in, premium features.
• Smart IR technology, allowing the camera to adjust IR light intensity to ensure clear and usable footage.
• 3D Digital Noise Reduction (DNR)
• State-of-the-art, high-resolution image sensors.
• Wide Dynamic Range for increased clarity.

Bullet Cameras

While all bullet cameras are small, easy to mount and ideal for small spaces, Uniview’s range of bullet cameras also feature a Corridor Mode, Region of Interest at 1920 x 1080 resolution quality, and 3D Digital Noise Reduction (DNR).

Vandal-resistant Dome Cameras

Dome cameras are ideal for high traffic areas, such as casinos, retail stores and restaurants, due to their dome shape that make them difficult to spot and to determine which direction the camera is pointing in. Also, the dome design offers efficient protection against things like redirection and defocusing.

Bullet Cameras

A pan–tilt–zoom camera (PTZ camera) is a camera that is capable of remote directional and zoom control. PTZ cameras have become the most popular choice for applications that require the ability to position and zoom the camera to a specific area of interest.

Security has never been this intelligent!

All Uniview H.265 camera models now include smart functions! The latest Uniview cameras come with built-in EDGE analytics, allowing each camera to process the analytical functions onboard without having to store the footage on a remote recording device in advance. This alleviates some of the processing pressure from the NVR allowing for more simultaneous recording channels.

The smart functions include, face detection, people counting, line detection, intrusion detection, scene change, audio detection , defocus detection and auto tracking.

Network Video Recorders

Alternative Steel’s Network Video Recorders (NVRs), come with touch-panels and feature instant playback and smart search functions. Alternative Steel NVRs are also highly scalable with models as small as the 4 Ch with 1 Bay and a max of 8 MP recording (which is ideal for homes or small businesses) up to models as big as the 128 Ch with 16 Bays and 12 MP recording capability (perfect for applications with lots of traffic such as busy casino floors). Alternative Steel NVRs also offer support for mobile client access, as well as HDMI, HDMI 2 (for 4K monitors) and VGA output up to 1080p.

Ultra 265 and Beyond

Ultra 265 – Ultra 265 is an enhanced encoding technology from Uniview that can help reduce your bandwidth consumption by up to roughly 80-95% with no loss in quality!

Advanced Storage Saving

Unlike conventional video compression technologies which try to reduce storage costs by sacrificing resolution and frame rate indiscriminately, Ultra 265 uses “IRP” (Intelligent Region Perception) to detect motion in each frame so that scenes containing relevant information could be preserved while the other relatively static information could be squeezed to save up to 95% storage space.
