HeiTel, a manufacturer of video surveillance equipment, has launched a DVR for use in transport vehicles, such as armoured cars, as well as local public transport.
Like its popular CamDisc svr series, this new generation of equipment has four or 10 video inputs and a host of additional functions in addition to all of svr's proven features.
When it is coupled to the vehicle's electrical system, the DVR will record on a special 2,5-inch removable hard disk, tailored for mobile use through shock-resistant bearings.
The varying voltage input of 8 to 40 V d.c. ensures that the CamMobile series can be operated directly using the voltages standard in vehicles. At the same time, an integrated voltage transformer provides a central and economical supply of 12 V d.c/350 mA for all of the cameras installed in the vehicle.
For live image transmission, image evaluation and parameterisation, CamMobile has an Ethernet network interface and an additional multistandard interface, tailored for wireless communication, for the connection of external adapters, particularly suitable for efficient image transmission to standardised mobile networks.
Commenting on HeiTel's new range, M.J. Oosthuizen, product manager at Norbain SA, says CamMobile will be factory-supplied with a web server designed for security applications.
"Although the multistation browser interface manages without ActiveX elements or other costly plugins, all of the important functions - such as live image transmission, camera switching, multi-image display, image quality settings and the control of all notable PTZ systems - are available to the user at any time and in any location," he says. "We are also able to provide remote access depending on coverage afforded by the cellular service providers.
"Like all HeiTel products, the CamMobile series is also compatible with higher-ranking control centres that are equipped with receiving software from the CamControl software family.
"For example, should a number of properties or large vehicle fleets need to be managed efficiently from a central office, HeiTel's Event Management System will do so.
"Other performance-orientated features of the new product include video management tailored to the features of HeiTel products, dynamic alarm management, freely definable action plans and a database structure that has been perfected for control centre applications."
HeiTel is represented locally by Norbain South Africa.
