Idis scores a quartet at Secure Campus Awards


Idis has scored four wins in the latest annual Secure Campus Awards, with judges singling out the 4MP Edge AI PTZ and the 2MP Video Intercom for recognition. The gold and platinum awards honour the outstanding achievements of security industry manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve campus security. Idis won the top awards in the NDAA compliant cameras category, and in entry security intercoms, underlining the benefits of its end-to-end solutions for universities, colleges and schools, hospitals, and corporate campuses.

The new, best-in-class 2MP Video Intercom from Idis is the first NEMA 4X, IK10, and IP66 rated product of its kind offered by any video surveillance vendor. The vandal-resistant and waterproof DC-I6212WRX gives users a host of performance benefits, including advanced functions and unmatched durability in harsh conditions.

Housed in a toughened casing with a choice of flush and surface mount options, the DC-I6212WRX can withstand extreme temperatures and humidity up to 90%, and features intelligent trigger events including active tampering, motion detection, and trip zones. With a robust built-in speaker, it is easy to integrate with Idis’s choice of VMS, including the totally cost- and license-free Idis Center, as well as third-party systems, including access control systems and electromagnetic door locks.

Access control and visitor management are further boosted with two-way VoIP (SIP) audio, enhanced by echo cancelling and noise reduction. The DC-I6212WRX provides a clear foreground focus and sharp image capture of the scene behind thanks to superior 2MP (1920×1080) image capture with a 180-degree fisheye view, true 120dB wide dynamic range (WDR) and an IR LED nighttime range of 16 feet.

The 4MP Edge AI PTZ camera includes a “first-of-a-kind” AI-powered auto-tracking functionality designed to make it easier to track, monitor, and record the movements of target individuals in high-definition, without error or distraction. With options for manual or automatic target selection, it ensures unbroken surveillance even during the highest pressure moments.

The camera’s highly accurate, user friendly AI functionality is invaluable for all settings where it’s important to monitor events in real time – to support rapid responses; to assist responder coordination; and to enable efficient incident investigations.

“Idis video technology is playing an increasingly important role protecting campuses and educational settings, keeping students and staff safe and helping them to feel safe,” says Mike Rose, Senior Vice President of Sales, Idis Americas. “With two of our latest innovations we are honoured to be among the leading manufacturers singled out for praise in the 2024 Secure Campus Awards.”
