Optex Wonder Track - never fails to capture that critical moment.

August '99 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Elvey International, distributors of Optex security solutions, has introduced the Optex Wonder Track WT 100, an innovative monitoring solution that utilises sensing technology and high-tech digital recording techniques. Positioned as an event recorder, the Optex Wonder Track WT 100 captures digital video images as they occur.

Wonder Track will allow users to see the actual image of a burglar entering the premises, before the alarm itself is triggered. The device does this by means of its pre-alarm mode which captures and stores a selected number of pictures, before the alarm event itself occurs.

Since it is a digital recording system, Wonder Track also enables users to reduce their costs from day one, as there are no video tapes to replace and no laborious hours of viewing tapes to find that crucial event. The compact and lightweight unit can be wall or desk mounted and is simple to instal and operate. It does not require the use of a complicated PC or software to set up and all programming is done on the unit and uses an on screen display.

Wonder Track indexes all pictures with such details as the camera number time and date and alarm mode on or off to allow easy searching.

This versatile system offers several modes to capture that crucial moment such as interval mode, this setting enables constant recording in programmed time intervals with sequential chain shots on an alarm activation. The overwrite section can be disabled to protect all pictures recorded in it's memory.

Multi-angle mode allows sequential pictures to be taken by more than one camera with a trigger from a single input trigger or single passive infrared detector.

Up to four cameras can be connected to the Wonder Track with its built-in sequential switching.

The standard 8 MB of memory will capture 330 pictures in high resolution which can be expanded up to 747 pictures by adding a maximum of 12 MB of optional memory, with the overwrite memory mode enabled the FIFO buffer will allow endless recording.

When Wonder Track is integrated to an alarm system the captured pictures can be sent via standard phone lines to a central monitoring station simultaneously with alarm signals to give video verification of an alarm.
