Scallop Imaging D7-180 Camera Integrated with NICE Systems' Video Surveillance Solution

Boston, MA, August 28, 2012 -- Scallop Imaging, the market innovator in high resolution, panoramic video cameras, today announced the integration of its D7-180 wide angle security camera with NICE Systems' (NASDAQ: NICE) NiceVision IP video solution, providing advanced video surveillance capabilities for government and commercial enterprises.

"The integration of Scallop Imaging's D7-180 cameras with NiceVision means organizations can now easily add D7-180 cameras to their NICE video surveillance solution, and stream and record full color, high resolution, instant zoom video across a 180 degree, panoramic field of view," said Peter Jones, President of Scallop Imaging.

The D7-180 generates seven megapixel resolution across a panoramic, 180 degree field of view, and features H.264 compression and Power over Ethernet (PoE). The NiceVision open-platform IP video surveillance system combines real-time analysis, IP networking, recording and management to enable automatic threat detection, instant verification, event resolution and effective investigation.

"As an open platform and IT friendly solution, NiceVision can easily integrate with advanced IP edge devices such as the D7-180," said Guy Yaniv, General Manager of Surveillance Solutions, Security Group at NICE. "Through this integration, government and enterprise organizations will be able to leverage the advanced capabilities of NICE and Scallop Imaging to enhance their security and operations."

Scallop Imaging's D7-180 seven megapixel digital camera distributes the imaging task across multiple, small image sensors, processing over 100 megapixels per second to calibrate, synchronize and merge video in real time. The result is two simultaneous video streams: a 720p HD stream composed of a true 180 degree, non-fisheye, situational awareness view at 15 frames per second, and up to four instantly repositionable zoom windows at full pixel resolution at 15 fps; and a full resolution (5120x1280 pixels) video stream at one fps.
