DDC SA launches flexible camera server

June 2004 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Digital Data Communications SA (DDC SA), importers of LevelOne networking equipment, has introduced the CamCon Camera Server to the local market. The solution comprises a digital network-based surveillance system that can incorporate existing CCTV devices.

"It is designed to let authorised users view, manage and store realtime video as well as playback recorded video from any computer on the network or Internet," says Jason Niedermeyer, a director at DDCSA.

The flexible architecture allows new cameras as well as third-party devices such as alarms and access control systems to be added without wasting current investments.

Typical applications for the Camera Server solution include corporation security, production monitoring, highways, law enforcement and campus installations.

The FCS-5004 CCS is equipped with video connectors to accommodate up to four analog cameras while the FCS-5008 CCS connects up to eight analog cameras at the same time. The live video can be reviewed/restored by authorised users through the built-in 10/100 Mbps Ethernet over the LAN/Internet.

DDC's CamCon browser utility provides a friendly browser-based administrative interface to make administrator easy to set following configurations by Microsoft Internet Explorer for CCS.

Authorised users can record video and view any camera at any frame rate and duration from any location using IE browser. Furthermore, specific P/T/Z cameras are also controlled through the same interface to adjust the focus as needed.

LevelOne's network attached storage (NAS) with unlimited capacity can be installed at any site of LAN/Internet. The specific features of storage mirroring and distributed storage is also available. LevelOne's NAS allow CCSs to tolerate hard disk failure without losing precious recordings.
