IDEAL Announces Major Upgrade for SecuriTEST™ CCTV/Security Tester

New SecuriTEST PRO adds Video, Audio and Sync Testing, Additional PTZ Protocols, and New Lighter, Easier-to-Carry Housing Powered By High-Capacity Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery

SYCAMORE, IL, July 8, 2008 – The IDEAL SecuriTEST™, the security industry's most popular multi-functional CCTV tester, has undergone a major upgrade, and now delivers to technicians an enhanced feature set to satisfy their requirements whenever they are installing, testing and maintaining analog camera systems.

Available immediately, the IDEAL SecuriTEST™ PRO offers the multi-function testing platform of the original SecuriTEST introduced last year, along with new IRE video level and sync testing, new sound level assessment through an integrated speaker and on-screen display, and new additional support for more PTZ camera protocols all packaged in a lighter, more portable design featuring a high-capacity lithium ion battery.

“We know from talking to our customers that saving time and money is their number one concern,” explained Dan Payerle, Product Manager, IDEAL. “For that reason, in upgrading our SecuriTEST, we were focused on providing more productivity from a single device. The new SecuriTEST PRO allows a technician to verify and troubleshoot a complete CCTV system by himself or herself, significantly reducing labor and overhead costs.”

CCTV installers often need to carry a variety of testing tools to complete their work. SecuriTEST PRO combines the most-needed tools in one easy-to-carry package, eliminating the need to juggle several devices while on a ladder or lift, making working conditions safer and increasing productivity. SecuriTEST PRO empowers CCTV technicians to easily test video and sound, control PTZ cameras, analyze over a dozen PTZ protocols, program PTZ and static cameras, wire map UTP cables, generate video test patterns, and test electrical signals with its built-in digital multimeter.

One of the most anticipated new features of the SecuriTEST is its video and sync testing which assures each camera is set to its correct video output level. Testing determines the overall level of an NTSC video signal (30-150 IRE) and its sync-to-white ratio (30-50 IRE). PAL video can also be measured from 200-1200mV and sync ratio from 200-320mV. In addition, an audio input on the tester allows it to be directly connected to a camera to sample audio though the tester's built-in speaker or on its 2.5-inch color LCD screen as a visible level scale.

The SecuriTEST PRO kit comes with the tester, one lithium battery pack with 5.5 hours of operating time, an AC adapter/charger, 12V auto charger, 4-foot BNC video cable, test leads for the digital multimeter, UTP cable terminator, a neck strap and a rugged carrying pouch.
