We've come a long way since Edison's etching tin used to record analog waves back in 1877. But, some of the underlying problems with his mechanism still remain today....analog or VHS recordings degrade every time you play them and eventually wear out.
With advanced techniques in converting analog waves to binary data, video and audio data can be replicated repeatedly without sacrificing quality. In addition, the binary information allows for greater flexibility because we can store larger amounts of information about the original image than with a conventional recording device such as a VHS tape.
We've implemented all of the latest in digital audio/video technologies to bring you several product lines which have considerable advantages over their analog (CCTV) counterparts. Our digital solutions are simply faster, higher quality, and easier to manage than standard CCTV surveillance systems; with digital technology, you can save hundreds even thousands of dollars in operating cost over conventional products. In addition, the iSentrytm product line easily integrates into your existing analog monitoring system allowing for multi-phased upgrades or expansions.
With the iSentrytm product line, you can View live streams or playback recorded video from various cameras at multiple locations while continuing to record new video without interruption. In addition, the network capabilities of our product family allows you to manage cameras in the room next door or on another continent.
Since the digitized video can be archived on a hard drive within the local area network or to an offsite recording unit, there is no chance of missing critical footage because of forgetting to replace tapes. Recycled and smart recording features allow automatic recycle of the hardware using either First In First Out (FIFO) sequences with optional permanent archiving of critical events on DVD or CDROM.
Sophisticated search and retrieval functionality combined with the benefits of digital storage eliminates the need to search through hours or piles of VCR tapes. The iSentrytm product line allows scheduling motion detection or time lapsed recording. Schedule event triggers for each camera separately to notify you via cell phone, by email, or by pager of any event triggers. Search archived video by date, time, location, camera or alarm--retrieve results instantaneously.
Digital recording and state of the art compression allows infinite archive capacity rather than large space requirements to store vhs tapes. Advanced motion detection and scheduling features assure no dead/wasted taping and conserves hard disk space.
Multi-level password protected access, allows administrators to controls access to the video streams individually by camera. Digital watermarking protection prevents artificial alteration or distortion of recorded events ensuring admissibility as evidence in a court of law. And, best of all, our digital video provides higher quality images that don't degrade each time it's played back. Edison would be so proud!
