Derwent Systems Ltd is delighted to have been awarded two prestigious accolades in the North East Business Awards. The company who design, develop and manufacture innovative security lighting solutions were named winners in both the Technology and Product Innovation categories for their AEGIS infrared illuminator.

Derwent developed AEGIS (meaning protected by) in direct response to customer feedback, a fact that impressed the judging panel. Combining innovations in infrared technology and product design, AEGIS is a truly unique product which answers long standing LED performance related issues identified by the security industry.

AEGIS is the only LED infrared illuminator designed specifically to compensate for LED degradation over time. The optical output of typical LED illuminators will degrade by up to 10% within the first few months of operation and continue to degrade during the operational life of the illuminator. This is a long-standing performance-related problem identified by security specifiers, consultants, and end users alike. LED degradation results in poor light output, reduced image quality and reduced illumination range.

AEGIS is the only IR illuminator to feature a built-in microprocessor which controls and adjusts light output to automatically compensate for LED degradation and guarantee a constant level of lighting performance over the life of the illuminator. This patent pending technology which Derwent call Constant Light(tm) is the reason the company describes AEGIS as "the security industry's first Intelligent-IR illuminator."

AEGIS also features Black Diamond(tm) technology, a micro-refractive lens technique that enables up to 220m (720ft) of even infrared illumination and widened beam patterns (up to 120° from a single unit). This means full 360° illumination for dome CCTV cameras is possible with only three wide angle illuminators. An innovative 12V DC / 24V AC Power-On-Board(tm) feature can eliminate the need for a separate power supply unit, for easier, more aesthetically pleasing installations.

AEGIS is one of a number of innovative new products which will be showcased by Derwent on stand 16045 at this year's IFSEC security exhibition in Birmingham, 12th - 15th May 2008.

This is the eighth year of the North East Business Awards, which are run by The Journal and its sister paper the Evening Gazette in Middlesbrough. Derwent Systems are now looking forward to competing at the competitions finals which take place on May 1.
