Integration includes Optex Redscan Laser Detector with AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP)


Otsu, Japan, November 19, 2013 — Optex Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of security infrared and laser technology, announced today the integration of their IP sensors and detector products with Axis network cameras and AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP). This integration will provide additional intelligence to end user cameras for powerful IP perimeter intrusion solutions.

Optex IP detectors integrate directly into AXIS PTZ cameras combining video verification and Optex Laser, Passive Infrared or Photoelectric detection technologies creating benefits such as:


- AXIS ACAP integration provides access to the Optex Redscan laser detector’s built-in detection modes for specific perimeter intrusion applications.


- Optex’s definitive product specifications to detect objects and activate cameras with minimal effects from common environmental and lighting conditions that cause false positives, minimizing false alarms.


- Using Redscan in conjunction with video analytics and Axis thermal network cameras enhances perimeter security allowing analytics to confirm identity and threat level of detected objects.


- Managing Optex event codes through Axis ACAP enabled PTZ cameras allows you to send video and alarm data to video management software such as Camera Companion or Camera Station.


“Integrating Optex sensor and detector technology with the Axis’ extensive selection of network video products will provide an efficient systems integration solution for users who want to create intelligent motion triggers that activate and control cameras only when an object is detected, even in difficult lighting and environmental conditions,” says Ryosuke Miwa, Optex’s general manager of global sales and marketing. “Optex sensors and detectors actively reduce video driven false alarms. As a result, they can eliminate the need for costly responses by personnel.”


“We are excited to see the Optex IP products integrate a smart application using our AXIS Camera Application Platform,” said Vince Ricco, business development manager, Axis Technology Partner Program. “This combined solution leverages the power of our platform and provides a unique and cost-effective way to solve a complex security challenge.”


The Axis integration will be part of the Optex product showcase, booth 529, at the ISC East, New York, NY November 20-21st. In addition, integration is featured in the Axis booth (#316) throughout the exhibition.
