When it comes to home security cameras, image is everything. After all, it doesn’t do you a whole lot of good if that person caught on camera looks like the latest glimpse of Sasquatch. IC Realtime is making its latest home security cameras hard to beat, by adding in 4K imagery.
These 4K home security cameras promise resolutions of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, in a 16:9 format with progressive scanning at 25/30Hz. This translates into some seriously eye-popping imagery that’s four times the resolution of a full 1080p HDTV!
The first in the new lineup is the IC720 4K 360-Degree x 360-Degree Camera. This dual-sensor 24-megapixel camera allows users to pan from floor-to-ceiling and completely around the camera, all via the IC720 software app. Other features include zoom and freeze options, as well as navigation by pointing the display device or touching the display screen. There’s no word on when the camera will be released, but we can expect it to be priced at $3,000.
For a less expensive solution, choose a little something from the lineup of 4K 360-Degree Dome and Wide-Angle Lens Home Security Cameras. This collection includes a 360-degree dome and several standard wide-angle lens options, each with a 4,000 x 3,000 resolution, 4K @ 15FPS recording, and support for the IC720 software platform. Other features include audio and night vision. The 360-degree 4K dome camera (ICIP-360L12) has an MSRP of $1,598, with the wide-angle versions available in bullet, dome and box styles for between $900 and $1,400.
The last in the new lineup is a network video recorder. However, this isn’t just any NVR; it’s the 4K NVR. Packing in an Intel i7 quad-core processor, the 4K NVR can store up to 96TB, is able to output 4K to anywhere from four to 128 channels, and has an MSRP of $13,998.
“While 4K is becoming more common in the consumer electronics marketplace relative to TVs and home theater film screens, there is very little video content to speak of,” says IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor. “IC Realtime is amongst the first to offer a comprehensive line that captures video in 4K, taking surveillance to an entirely new level.”
