Foxtel’s controversial new drama series Euphoria is already creating waves ahead of its premiere next week, with calls from media watchdog groups to ban the show.

Starring superstar actor and singer Zendaya, Euphoria follows a group of high-school students as they navigate a mine field of drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship. The series will be available to customers streaming it On Demand, and to watch on FOX SHOWCASE, from Monday, June 17 at 9.30pm – just hours after its US premiere.

US censorship advocacy group the Parents Television Council has called for the show to be pulled, expressing concern that the series “appears to be overtly, intentionally, marketing extremely graphic adult content – sex, violence, profanity and drug use – to teens and preteens.”

Media reviews for the series have been just as controversial. Variety have called the HBO drama “a wild, unsettling ride”, while the Hollywood Reporter questions “How much teen sex and drugs is too much?”

Brian Walsh, Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television, said: “This series is not for everybody and it’s not for your 14 year old. Parental Guidance is advised for our customers using streaming and there’s a good reason why the channel timeslot is 9.30pm. The show isn’t always easy to watch, and there is no question it pushes the boundaries, but it is provocative, authentic and unforgettable.”

Based on the ground-breaking Israeli series of the same name, Euphoria takes an up-close-and-personal look at what it’s like to be a young person today, in a story that’s equal parts shocking and empathetic.

Creator/writer Sam Levinson directed five of Euphoria’s episodes. In addition to Levinson, EPs include Drake and Future the Prince. Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin, who created the Israeli series, also serve as executive producers.

Cost effective, IP66 rated Outdoor PoE Cameras, utilising latest H.265 codec

SYDNEY, 13 June 2019 – D-Link ANZ has launched an expansion of its Vigilance surveillance portfolio with the addition of two new cameras. The DCS-4705E, a 5-Megapixel Outdoor Mini Bullet Camera, and the DCS-4605EV, a 5-Megapixel Outdoor Dome Camera, offer businesses, small and large, easy to install, round-the-clock protection with their state-of-the-art features and capabilities.

DCS-4705E

The two cameras have been designed with robustness and durability in mind and are able to withstand a range of adverse conditions. The IP66 rated waterproof housing ensures that the cameras can withstand high levels of rain and dust as well as temperatures ranging -30⁰C to

+50°C. Additionally, the DCS-4605EV dome camera’s IK10 vandal-proof housing makes it ideal for environments where there is the potential for the camera being damaged or tampered with.

DCS-4605EV

Both the DCS-4705E Mini Bullet camera and the DCS-4605EV Dome camera are perfect for a wide range of outdoor and indoor environments such as carparks, entrances to buildings or pathways. Both cameras include PoE support allowing for placement in a variety of locations without the need for additional power cabling or sockets.

Both cameras are integrated with 5-megapixel image sensors, supporting resolutions up to 2560 x 1920 , ensuring that even the smallest detail is captured, from faces to number plates. Support for the latest H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard maximises network bandwidth for enhanced quality. 3D noise reduction (3DNR) and wide dynamic range (WDR) are also included in both cameras to further enhance the quality of footage captured in challenging lighting conditions. Thanks to IR LEDs and the automatic IR-Cut filter the cameras are effective in all lighting environments from complete darkness to areas with high levels of contrast.

Road rage and bad driving sees more dash cams being installed


Road rage and bad driving sees more dash cams being installed
It seems that not a day goes by when we don’t hear about a road rage incident or see a case of really bad driving.

This is prompting more drivers to install dash cams — or car dashboard cameras — in their vehicles to insure themselves against adverse outcomes that may occur as a result.

Along with many other reasons to use a dash cam, it’s the user’s hip pocket that’s the winner: protecting their finances and personal property, and importantly, their time.

For example, with rear-ending being the most common type of car accident in Australia, drivers of the car who did the rear-ending are usually considered at fault unless they can prove otherwise.

If they are innocent, a dash cam with a crisp clear recording can help prove it straight away. Clear footage can also help identify vehicles that leave the scene of an incident.

Insurance companies love dash cams because they can then chase the real instigator of the crash and the affected driver isn’t recorded as being at fault.

At its heart, a dash cam continuously records video and audio as well as other information such as location, date, time and speed.

Leading Australian safety products company, Andatech, has introduced new DriveSense Ranger dash cams that use the latest generation technology and provide exceptional camera quality.

G-sensor detects vibrations

Ensuring the video footage is protected when needed is crucial, which is assisted by the gravity sensor (G-sensor) in the device. DriveSense dash cams have a built-in G-sensor that uses indicators such as vibrations and sudden jolting motions to alert the user to protect the recorded file so it cannot be deleted or overwritten. The G-sensor sensitivity can be set to low, medium, high or switched off completely.

A film file can also be manually selected to lock or protect, which is then saved in a separate folder in the microSD card and cannot be deleted.

Andatech’s two dash cam models comprise the DriveSense Ranger Dash Cam with WiFi and GPS ($249) and the DriveSense Ranger Duo Dash Cam ($299), which has both a front and rear dash cam with GPS.

DriveSense features

Features of the DriveSense Ranger dash cams include:

* Recording in high resolution super HD 1080p at 30 frames per second to ensure it will pick up details such as licence plate numbers.

* 1.5 or 2-inch LCD colour screen that is lightweight and compact without blocking the field of view.

* A built-in accelerometer that records the speed of the vehicle while driving and is shown in every video recording.

* 150-degree wide angle view with six-layer glass and infrared vision that provides an excellent field of view, comfortably covering up to five lanes of traffic.

* 4x digital zoom to check details of licence plates, road signs and street names and large f/2.0 aperture, which provides vivid recordings under low light conditions and clear images even at night.

* Ability to record videos in 3, 5 or 10 minute segments or continuously.

Once the memory is full, the dash cam will start writing over older files seamlessly (excluding locked files).

DriveSense dash cams have auto start up and shut down and users can enable or disable motion detection.

Following the easy installation, it can connect directly to a smartphone for viewing and downloading files using the free DriveSense app.

Andatech’s dash cams provide crisp clear recordings, full functionality and connectivity for an easy, seamless user experience. Both units come with a 32GB micro SD card and one-year warranty.
