EZVIZ has launched the C8C, its first outdoor pan/tilt camera, just in time for the summer. “As children spend more time outdoors in the pool or garden it can become challenging to keep track of everyone. Fortunately, the C8C is designed to overcome such issues in outdoor protection. The smart camera boasts powerful features including panoramic monitoring, AI-powered detection, color night vision, and event-triggered active defense. It is an all-in-one camera that records, detects, and deters effectively in the face of property security needs,” the company said in a statement.
Its compact and attractive, the orb-shaped design allows the C8C to fit in any home environment, and it can rotate horizontally and vertically for expanded panoramic views. That makes it perfect to place near the front door to see who is ringing the doorbell. With a 352-degree horizontal view and a 95-degree vertical view, the camera easily takes in views across large outdoor spaces.
“We believe the C8C will become a must-have for many homeowners since it recognizes and tracks outdoor movement for families to multitask as they prepare for the summer holidays. It is also aesthetically appealing and combines functionalities in a great design,” said Lexie Zhang, product manager of EZVIZ’s outdoor pan/tilt camera range. “It is flexible in installation and versatile in use, and the pan-tilt feature will bring people a whole new experience in outdoor monitoring.”
The pan and tilt features help overcome blind spots in monitoring that many outdoor cameras suffer from. Furthermore, the camera comes equipped with a noise-canceling microphone. Users can easily maneuver the C8C using the EZVIZ App on their mobile device to see and hear what’s going on for active, real-time awareness of their surroundings.
To solve the industry-wide challenge in late-night monitoring, the C8C features a full-color night vision mode by way of professional optical lenses and two built-in spotlights. By illuminating the environment, the C8C renders colorful scenes even at night. This supplemental lighting can be turned on manually, again using the EZVIZ App, or can be set to trigger automatically through EZVIZ’s smart night vision mode. When ‘Smart Mode’ is enabled, the camera will detect movement and switch the video display from black-and-white to full-color.
Monitoring everything that happens outdoors is a complex practice, with changing weather and shadows, animals, and more. EZVIZ has sought ways to reduce false or irrelevant alerts from these and other triggers, as well as provide an active defense system. To do so, EZVIZ programmed an advanced AI algorithm into the C8C camera so it can recognize and detect human shapes intelligently.
In short, EZVIZ designed the C8C to ensure stability and durability under some of the toughest circumstances. That means it can easily cope with the high temperatures and humidity common in a UAE summer. The C8C has two external antennas for enhanced Wi-Fi connections and is IP65-rated to deliver long-standing, high-performance even in wind, rain or snow. The camera is ideal for both home and business use, including outdoor spaces like yards, shops, streets, factories, and farms.
Like all other EZVIZ products, the C8C boasts easy control, live viewing, and video playback using the free EZVIZ app. All videos are recorded in 1080p high-definition and efficiently compressed with the H.265 standard. Users can either store footage on the camera’s local micro-SD card or subscribe to EZVIZ’s CloudPlay for cloud storage, which now provides a free trial for up to 30 days.
The C8C pan/tilt camera will soon be available for purchase.
Nissan Shows Off All-Electric Ariya at Expo 2020
Nissan is moving towards sustainable mobility with the first regional showcase of its stunning all-electric Ariya crossover car that is targeted towards the mass market. The Japanese company unveiled its all-new electric vehicle on 14th October, 2021, at the Let’s Move event at Dubai Exhibition Centre, Expo 2020 Dubai. “As Expo 2020’s Official Automotive Partner, Nissan is strongly committed to championing more sustainable transportation,” the company said.
Thierry Sabbagh, Managing Director of Nissan Middle East, said, “It’s a really exciting moment for us as a brand because our partnership with Expo started three years ago and we have been a part of the entire development, whether it is of the site or also of all the plans that have been set. And today, the partnership between Expo and Nissan is very natural. Because today, when we look at the pillars of Expo, whether on Sustainability, on Mobility, and on Opportunity, I can tell you that Nissan’s strategy is very much based on that.”
Joni Paiva, Divisional Vice President of Nissan Motors, said, “When you align Nissan’s purpose to drive innovation to enrich people’s lives and you look at Expo 2020’s purpose [and theme], ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, these two visions align extremely well, especially when you use the subthemes of Expo 2020 of Sustainability, Opportunity, and Mobility.”
Sabbagh said that unlike other electric vehicles currently available on the market, the new Ariya is made to appeal to people of all backgrounds, rather than target a niche audience only. He added, “Nissan as a brand has always brought products to the market that have very high demand and have always really been very much the best when it comes to the technology, to the innovation. And definitely, this is part of our passion. When we bring products to the market, we want to ensure that people from different categories, and from different aspirations, are able to drive our product. And definitely, I don’t see a difference with the Nissan Ariya, once it is fully launched in the markets. I will definitely be convinced that this will be available and offered to customers with different needs and also different profile customers.”
“The Ariya will drive the beginning of the Nissan NEXT transformation journey, a forward-looking plan building on the brand’s reputation for innovation, craftsmanship, customer focus, and quality,” the company said.
