Keep a clear, realtime eye on remote sites

March/April 2001 Surveillance

In today's 24 h society, demand for fully automated services is rising, driving an expanded need for network-based remote surveillance systems. The Panasonic WJ-AV20 Codec is ideal for remote surveillance applications, transmitting both sound and colour images over ISDN digital lines. It is ideal for security applications and can also be used to monitor employee or customer traffic in service-improvement programmes.

When used with Panasonic colour dome cameras, each WJ-AV20 unit supports up to eight pre-set positions. The optional WV-CU20 controller gives full remote control of the Panasonic colour dome camera's features including pan, tilt, zoom and auto focus.

In addition, the WJ-AV20 provides 35 s of image storage. Control site operators can then retrieve the stored images, making it easy to check what the subject was doing before the alarm was received.

The WJ-AV20 is equipped with input connectors for up to eight sensors. When alarms are triggered, images and sounds are automatically transmitted to the control site. This cost-saving arrangement eliminates the need for constantly open circuits.

To prevent human error, the camera and alarm numbers are displayed on the monitor along with the image.

The WJ-AV20 supports one-touch dialling to five locations, plus abbreviated dialling for up to 200 locations. This feature makes it simple to reach frequently checked sites.
