With the installation of a networked surveillance system, you can locally or remotely monitor the safety and security of people and property anywhere, anytime. Networked surveillance makes it possible to send live images and audio for remote monitoring, learning, troubleshooting, web broadcasting, and any other activity requiring a remote presence. Vivotek’s advanced codec technology allows you to easily view, control, and manage all networked cameras using any standard web browser or our surveillance management software from any networked computer.
Vivotek’s video servers provide a reliable, user-friendly transition from CCTV to IP-Based Surveillance. These video servers receive data from the expensive analog hardware already threaded throughout the building and encode it utilizing our advanced codec system, developed by our innovative R&D department. After the data is securely encrypted it can be sent out via network to be monitored, or recorded. Our video servers give the ability to choose H.264, MPEG-4, or MJPEG video compression to maximize bandwidth efficiency. Also the addition of video servers to the analog systems gives enables such functions as: motion detection, pre/post alarm snapshots, DI/DO connection, and more. With Vivotek video servers, you can easily upgrade to an IP-based digital system from your existing analog system. While analog requires expensive coax cables to be installed before a camera can function, our video servers and wireless features allow for access through Ethernet cables or wireless hot spots giving you the flexibility to expand at pace that fits your needs.
Vivotek’s new product RX7101 is a network video receiver, which can cost-effectively have your network-based video appliances including IP cameras and video servers connected with analog video devices like TV sets, analog monitors, or any other existing analog video switches. Newly released RX7101, supporting Vivotek’s 7000-series network cameras and video servers, can quickly convert MJPEG(*) or MPEG-4 digital videos into analog signals and easily output them to existing analog systems. With the Ethernet interface, users can easily get access to switch the settings of each device within the system through the build-in web page and the configuration installed in RX7101 will automatically guide you to establish quick connections at system boot. The flexible RX7101 can receive one channel of D1 video stream or 4 channels of CIF video streams.
Network Video Recorder
An NVR (Network Video Recorder) is an IP-based recorder that operates independently from a PC or other operation systems. Aimed to store digital video streams from network cameras, an NVR is usually incorporated with a large-volume hard disk to allow for a long period of recording. An NVR differs from a traditional DVR in its network connectivity, which allows digital data to be transmitted to other networked devices over the Internet. Another difference is that an NVR can be directly connected to a network camera while a DVR is usually be connected to an analog camera. Vivotek’s NVRs helps you build a high-efficiency surveillance system, where you can simultaneously record, monitor and manage video data through the Internet.
iViewer was developed to allow users to monitor locations off-site by providing access to surveillance camera video right on their iOS device. iViewer enables users to monitor live video from hundreds of cameras managed by centralized management software VAST or free-standard recording software ST7501-at any time, and from wherever they happen to be. Vivotek provides central management software- VAST, featuring reliable recording, easy system management, and great scalability for diverse IP surveillance applications. With server/client structure, users can carry out remote management on a large-scale system and benefits from a robust IP surveillance system.
