New Digi-Eye digital video recorder and transmission system available from Reditron

November '99 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Reditron has announced a new addition to its range of transmission and digital recording equipment. Digi-Eye is the latest in modern technological architecture combining the best of transmission capabilities with hard disk recording and simultaneous recording to DAT tape.

Renato Bordin, Technical Manager of Reditron, is seldom excited by new products. But he believes that Digi-Eye sets new standards for integrated CCTV systems in South Africa with a range of potential applications from remote management of sites to retail outlets, central business districts (CBDs), the banking industry and a multitude of others. "What makes Digi-Eye so popular internationally is the infinite flexibility of the product. Digi-Eye is WAN, LAN and http capable and for applications where none of these options are available or desirable, it can be configured for either ISDN or PSTN transmission. Connect it to your network, use it as a web server or plug it into your telephone network," says Bordin.

The single box contains 16 camera inputs, control of 24 alarm inputs, control of up to 24 alarm outputs, a matrix switcher, three composite video outputs controlled by an infrared remote control and is capable of controlling pan-tilts and high-speed dome cameras. Full motion detection on all cameras is a standard feature. Each video input can be individually configured for quality (resolution) and mode of operation being either on activity or continuous recording.

Says Bordin, "Digi-Eye is installed internationally at airports, used for traffic control, standard equipment at cash dispensing machines, found in most major retail outlets, used extensively in conjunction with parking management systems and has gained acceptance by many security and police forces in Europe."
