ACTiFisheye Lense That Sees Behind Itself


Hemispheric camera with ultra-wide viewing angle

ACTi I73 is a hemispheric dome equipped with an ultra-wide angle lens providing incredible 203.5° viewing angle. This unique feature allows the camera to detect suspicious activities even behind the camera’s body.

The 6MP sensor with Extreme Low Light Sensitivity and Advanced WDR delivers crisp color image both in bright and dark environments.Thanks to the dewarping function, the camera is able to natively remove distortion caused by capturing an ultra-wide field of view and output a flattened image similar to what sees a human eye. Having the camera perform this process greatly reduces the resources load required of the Recorder and Clients to support the camera.

Having the camera perform this process greatly reduces the resources load required of the Recorder and Clients to support the camera.

This model has been designed to operate under demanding outdoor conditions so it is weatherproof, vandal proof, operates in very low temperatures, and features defogging technology that substantially enhances image clarity in challenging conditions including smoke and smog.

The hemispheric camera is ideal for applications that require constant monitoring of all directions, such as, retail stores, galleries or traffic intersections.

Industry-first 30x zoom box with 4MP

Does the application require capturing 4MP high-resolution video on a very long distance with the option to protect the camera by using housing? ACTi I27 is the first model on the market that combines specifications that make it possible.

Like its predecessors, I24 (1MP) and I25 (2MP), it also sports a powerful 30x optical zoom lens with high-speed auto focus technology for fast switching between wide and close-up views. When mounted on a PT scanner, Pan and Tilt commands can be routed through the camera’s Serial Data port to control the motorized mount.

The 4MP high resolution sensor produces image with extreme clarity to record every incident even in low light and challenging conditions.

This model is an excellent choice for applications that require capturing very distant objects in high resolution (seaports) or when frequently zooming in and out, whether manually (traffic monitoring) or automatically (factory automation).

Louroe Electronics Receives President's "E" Award for Major Contribution to U.S. Exports

Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker congratulates Richard Brent, CEO of Louroe Electronics, and Cameron Javdani, director of sales and marketing, at the Department of Commerce's "E" Awards ceremony. 
Van Nuys, Calif., May 18, 2015 – U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker presented Louroe Electronics, the world leader in audio monitoring within the security industry, the President’s “E” Award for Exports in a ceremony at the Department of Commerce on May, 18, 2015. The award recognizes Louroe Electronics’ outstanding achievement in export growth and for its significant contributions to the overall increase of U.S. exports.

Established in 1961 by Executive Order 10978, the “E” Award Program honors America’s exporters. This year, the award was given to organizations who have had four years of successive export growth and whose export expansion has been measurable, innovative, sustainable and demonstrated a broad impact. The “E” Award remains the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.

“Louroe Electronics has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion,” said Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker in her letter to the company announcing its selection. “The “E” Awards Committee was very impressed with Louroe Electronics’ strategic development of international business opportunities to support company growth. Louroe Electronics’ achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs.”

“We are honored to be recognized for our export achievements with the President’s “E” Award for Exports,” said Richard Brent, CEO of Louroe Electronics. “Louroe is deeply committed to increasing security while simultaneously strengthening economies across the globe. We know none of this would be possible without the Department of Commerce. We express our deepest gratitude to the Department of Commerce and all of the invaluable trade opportunities it has provided, which have directly led to Louroe’s expansion of business and partnerships in Latin America.”

Louroe Electronics has continually championed and been involved in the Department of Commerce’s trade initiatives. In 2012, Louroe Electronics participated in its first trade mission, and as a result of the trip, Louroe Electronics’ sales increased by 1200 percent in the Mexican market. Louroe Electronics, along with 17 other companies, joined Secretary Pritzker on her first trade mission to Mexico in January 2014. The company later attended the 2014 Trade Winds: The Americas initiative, which was a business development conference and trade mission taking place in Central and South America. In September 2014, the audio manufacturer joined in the Safety and Security Trade Mission to Panama and Colombia. Louroe Electronics was eager to expand its exports to these countries as they are two of the largest prospective markets for the U.S. thanks to the free trade agreements that make over 80 percent of U.S. exports duty-free. Three months later, Brent participated in the U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue, which is a coalition of Mexican and American business leaders who meet to discuss how to enhance economic growth between the two countries. By the end of 2014, Louroe Electronics was exporting its audio monitoring security solutions to more than 50 countries.
