as a discontinuous system, it is embedded every cubic inch of the matrix, thereby capable of distributing a crack's energy or load Compared to conventional rebar, Helix officials contend, this "micro" reinforcing approach allows the concrete achieve higher shear capacity and modulus of rupture (first crack strength), plus increased durability (life cycle) and ductility (flexibility) Micro-Rebar, they add, offers precast producers and concrete practitioners the ability to completely or partially eliminate conventional reinforcing steel and its attendant tying and placing labor The patented design has been specified in 30-plus countries for cast-in-place or precast concrete slabs and structures whose combined surface area exceeds 50 million square feet — Polytorx LLC/Helix Steel, Ann Arbor, Mich., 734/322- 2114; Video surveillance Less than 2 in high, the new IKS-WD6112 HD is an ultra low-profile IP dome camera designed for indoor video surveillance that reduces IP infra- structure costs and complexity, while retaining a stylish and discreet appearance The IKS-WD6112 unleashes the full power of IP video with HD res- olution (1920 x 1080) at 30 frames-per-second to ensure smooth image capture of fast moving objects, plus bandwidth-efficient H 264 compres- sion Quad-streaming capabilities provide four sep- arately configured video streams from one camera simultaneously, allowing users to optimize each stream Users can configure one stream for live footage at low resolution, while recording in full HD on another — Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products, Irvine, Calif.;
