All-in-0ne iSTAR Ultra Video

May 2017 Editor's Choice, Surveillance, Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Integrated Solutions

Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, has launched iSTAR Ultra Video that offers distributed, small site security with enterprise performance.

This small appliance combines the access control features of iSTAR Ultra with embedded video recording and management that is remotely managed by an integrated C•CURE 9000/victor application to meet the security needs of small remote sites. Each iSTAR Ultra Video is factory-imaged with the latest firmware and camera licences.

Each iSTAR Ultra Video appliance supports up to eight readers and eight IP cameras. Used with IP-ACM Ethernet door modules, iSTAR Ultra Video is aimed at large corporations whose footprints include smaller remote networking facilities, fibre huts and other small but critical facilities that need constant monitoring and control. The distributed security architecture can scale to thousands of sites, making it an option for enterprise customers with multiple remote locations.

Each appliance manages up to 500 000 cardholders in a local database and can buffer up to 500 000 transactions locally when offline. It includes the full functionality of a VideoEdge NVR and its built-in intelligence allows users to receive multiple video streams for live, record, alarm, and meta-data collection.

The system provides full configuration and viewing functionality at the remote location while providing bandwidth-managed movement of the data distributed locally from where the video is securely stored. Users can easily back up video to any network location to increase storage capacity and system reliability.

Smart Streaming technology tailors video streams based on viewing conditions, which significantly reduces network bandwidth, CPU resources, and memory usage. VideoEdge dynamically scales and transcodes multiple live streams to all clients, further reducing bandwidth.

For the most critical areas, iSTAR Ultra Video features built-in intrusion zone functionality allowing you to monitor and respond to intrusion alarms quickly, without relying on a third-party intrusion panel. Any door or input wired to the IP-ACM Ethernet door modules can be configured as part of an intrusion zone, either as a 24/7 monitored input such as a glass break detector, or as a controlled input such as a motion sensor or door. Zones can be armed and disarmed using a combination of card and/or PIN, and/or remotely from C•CURE 9000 or victor clients. In response to zone alarms, specific cameras may be configured to present a live view and/or recorded video to the operator.

The onboard analytics transform video into business intelligence to better analyse operations, maximise revenue potential, and increase situational awareness.
