Video and audio convergence

Issue 1 2020 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Hikvision has introduced its video and audio convergence solution to the market, featuring a real-time intrusion deterrent feature.

IP speakers can now be linked with cameras, access control systems and alarm devices. When the CCTV system automatically detects an intrusion or if the alarm system is activated, IP speakers can immediately play programmed audio warnings to drive away would-be intruders.

Along with imported audio warnings, operators can also speak via the IP speakers to give live warnings when notified of an intrusion. Efficient security operations and digital transformation are further supported by alarm video which can pop up automatically. Scheduled audio messaging and public information broadcasting are two more practical functions made possible by Hikvision’s video and audio convergence solution.

With its functionality, Hikvision video and audio convergence can be applied across a wide range of scenarios and applications – including perimeter security, petrol stations, metro and railway stations, office buildings, and much more.
