Imigix launches iconPilot:an integrated Video transmission system for self contained operation of remote alarm verification and site monitoring .

October 99 Surveillance

Innovative start-up company, Imigix, recently unveiled the second product from its new range of remote video surveillance equipment. IconPilot is an integrated transceiver unit designed to complement the Imigix icon transceiver that promises to cut the cost and eliminate the compromises that have previously hindered the take-up of remote video alarm verification and site monitoring.

The product combines colour video and audio transmission with camera control in a single cost-effective unit. Designed for commercial and industrial environments, iconPilot enables anyone with a CCTV system to carry out alarm authentication from a remote site. Its two-way motion video is the highest quality available, with a frame update rate of up to 25 frame/s that bears comparison with actually being on-site. Thanks to its built-in intuitive control panel, iconPilot has no need of a PC.

In the past users have had to choose between buying a product with full frame compression or one that uses conditional refresh. Imigix feels that this has polarised the industry unnecessarily and has addressed the problem by combining both systems in the single product, using its unique Variframe technology.

Variframe puts central station security staff in control by giving them the ability to react instantly to on-site conditions and to switch seamlessly between full frame and conditional refresh modes as needed.

According to Managing Director, Richard Morgan, iconPilot - which was showcased at the recent IFSEC exhibition - looks set to give the whole industry a boost.

"CCTV is one of the security industry's strongest growth areas but centralised video monitoring has been expensive, complex and poor quality. By applying innovative yet proven technology that combines both Variframe and ISDN Imigix has, for the first time, made remote video monitoring truly viable.

"The availability of high quality remote audio and colour video alarm verification in an extremely cost-effective unit that is easy to instal and use will go a long way towards ridding the security industry of the problem of false alarms."

Purpose built

Rather than being a PC-based compromise, iconPilot consists of purpose-built hardware and software and is compatible with most existing CCTV systems. Applications include remote gatekeeping, anti-fraud video monitoring and remote video patrolling as well as public and private security.

It can also be used in conjunction with Imigix's icontrol and icontact central station database packages to manage the security of many remote video sites simultaneously from one PC at a central monitoring station.

Traditional and nonISDN solutions can take 20 s or more to deliver first images, but with Imigix iconPilot they are available in a fraction of the time.
