Sony Professional is set to reveal a host of new products and solutions at IFSEC 2012, continuing its commitment to developing state-of-the-art HD video security solutions for a wide range of applications and budgets. Sony will be showcasing these new developments at its stand 4/J10 in hall 4.
The arrival of Sony’s ‘IPELA ENGINE’ marks a new era for video security, offering enhanced image capturing capabilities and an industry first 130dB wide dynamic range in full HD quality at 30 frames/second. The technology will be equipped into new video security products later this year and will build on Sony’s strong heritage of delivering solutions with state of the art image capturing and analytics technology.
Sony’s ‘IPELA ENGINE’ includes features such as View-DR, which provides pin-sharp images in extreme light conditions, XDNR, which creates clear images in low-light conditions through the detection and removal of noise within a single frame, DEPA analytics, an alarm detection function using image processing, and High Frame Rate, high-speed recording at 60-frames/second.
All of these features are now seen as vital, taking the IP video surveillance industry “Beyond HD”.

Partner and leading provider of physical security information management (PSIM), VidSys, will be alongside Sony at IFSEC this year, demonstrating the integration and real-life application of Sony’s best-in-class security products via PSIM software. PSIM enables organizations to reduce operational costs, improve situation response times, reduce risk and increase safety, security and asset protection by effectively identifying, managing and resolving situations in real time.
