Connect with Vision: Delivering the Power of Total Video Security Systems

Article excerpt

VIDEO SECURITY OVER A NETWORK IS NOW A REALITY

ENDURA[TM] IS A HIGH-QUALITY, HIGH-PERFORMANCE NETWORK-BASED VIDEO SECURITY SYSTEM. WITH ITS POWERFUL DISTRIBUTED ARCHITECTURE, ENDURA TAKES FULL ADVANTAGE OF TODAY'S IP NETWORKS, ELIMINATING THE CONSTRAINTS OF TRADITIONAL APPROACHES. THERE IS NO END TO HOW A SYSTEM AND ITS COMPONENTS CAN INTERACT AND SHARE VIDEO, AUDIO, AND CONTROL INFORMATION. ENDURA IS THE FUTURE OF NETWORK-BASED VIDEO SECURITY SYSTEMS.

IT ALL STARTS HERE

The Endura system begins with a set of high-performance encoders and decoders. These units convert analog video and audio signals into digital packets that are transmitted over IP networks. The units also convert the digital information streams back into video output for viewing on Composite, S-Video or VGA monitors.

TOTAL SYSTEM MANAGEMENT

The Endura System Manager is an integrated hardware/software component that provides administration and security of multiple Endura devices. The core of the Endura system, this unit manages User and Device Authentication, Alarm Management, and the administration of user profiles, rights, and permissions. Advanced diagnostic tools ensure that the Endura system operates continuously at optimum levels.

VISIONARY DISPLAY CAPABILITIES

The Video Console Display is a high-performance, multiple-stream decoding unit. It converts multiple digital MPEG4 streams into video signals to be viewed on either Composite, S-Video, or VGA monitors, providing amazing flexibility. Using an Endura keyboard, the VCD becomes the true virtual matrix for the Endura system.
