Raytec’s VARIO2 IR illuminators have been used to capture the antics of a pair of beavers who are helping to reduce the risk of flooding using their dam-building skills. Achieving exceptional images, the footage has since been used for BBC’s ‘The One Show’ (which will be aired in early 2020).
Freelance producer, Wildlife on Film, work with wildlife trusts, environmental agencies and the BBC to provide effective wildlife footage for documentaries and educational content. This project involved monitoring beavers to study how they can help with flood management.
The goal was to achieve exceptional images of the beavers in their natural habitat. The client needed an illuminator which was small enough to mount inside a custom-made frame whilst being powerful.
They also required a high-quality Infra-Red solution as White-Light would disturb the beavers.
VAR2-i2-1 Infra-Red illuminators were the solution. Both illuminators were mounted to the frame, to illuminate wherever the camera pointed.
1. Powerful & Compact
The compact size of the VARIO2-i2-1 units were essential to the success of the project.
The quality of the images were so good that the footage was used on national television. Wildlife on Film commented, “The images are OUTSTANDING and has led to the footage being shown on the BBC. I’ll be using the kit on other projects too.”
2. Interchangeable Lens
VARIO2’s interchangeable lens allowed the client to modify the beam angle to suit each scenario and obtain the best images, whatever the beavers’ position and distance from the camera.
VARIO2 allowed the client to achieve outstanding results, and the quality of illumination was crucial in the footage being used by the BBC.
IDIS is poised to extend its analytics and deep learning capabilities, and to lead the sector with more advanced projects in the Middle East, with the launch a powerful line-up of Edge VA bullet and fixed domes featuring essential onboard analytics, to be showcased at Intersec (19-21 January, stand SA-A28).
The new camera range leverages the power of IDIS Instant Meta Filtering to search video data stored on IDIS NVRs, through the totally cost- and license-free IDIS Centre VMS. This makes it easy to search by appearance, colour and type of object. The new cameras will also make investigating incidents easier, with new people search capabilities removing the need for security staff to check hours of footage.
Another big draw, the latest iteration of IDIS Deep Learning Analytics (IDLA) technology is the industry’s most accurate AI solution for security and life safety applications, with a tested 98% accuracy. IDLA can recognise an intrusion, loitering, trespassing or a person falling over, in real-time, and trigger a notification.
Analytics appliances and specialist cameras now include: new 12MP and 5MP Super Fisheyes, giving complete situational awareness from a single camera, while the new DC-C4212RX 2MP micro dome camera also makes its Middle East debut. These latest camera models compliment analytic appliances such as in the Box”VA in the Box and AI in the Box, with cost-effective edge analytics that deliver valuable customer behaviour intelligence, with data tools including heat mapping, people counting, queue management and reporting.

Genetec Mission Control is a collaborative decision management system that simplifies incident response through greater situational intelligence and guided action. Designed to eliminate doubt, it filters out noise to provide the essential data, insights, and tools you need to respond to situations quickly and collaboratively.
With smarter sensors, mountains of data, multiple systems, and multiplying stakeholders, indecisiveness can take over. Security professionals and operations managers know all too well that connectivity comes at a cost. From Chicago to Shanghai, and from small offices to commercial campuses, organizations are moving away from basic security, event monitoring, and alarm management. Complicated situations demand sophisticated applications and clear, actionable data to help operators work more effectively and efficiently.
Every organization has experienced operational inefficiency or has suffered a security breach at some point. Mission Control allows operators to detect and take control of problematic situations as they develop. It prioritizes larger incidents and threats – and it removes emotion from the equation by guiding staff through every step until an incident is resolved.
Mission Control allows you to monitor the entirety of your organization through a single pane of glass that brings together all your security applications, including access control, video, ALPR, intrusion, and communications. This is aided by a map-driven monitoring approach that offers you more intuitive visualization and leads to greater awareness and understanding of complex situations. More importantly, Mission Control defines a clear path for evolving beyond monitoring traditional events and alarms. By monitoring incidents that are multi-faceted situations triggered by combinations of events and alarms over time, you free yourself up to address what actually matters and become more efficient over time.
