Remote video access for online systems

September 2002 Access Control & Identity Management

Hitachi has announced the launch of remote video access for online security systems. This new service delivers a flexible Internet-based security video solution for any size company, from large corporations to small and medium size businesses. As a fully scalable platform, customers can connect to, and view live or archived, images from any number of cameras at any number of locations using a standard Internet browser and low bandwidth (56 Kbps) connection.

"The new remote video access solution offers our customers a significant step forward in the ability to deliver security images and information to key people within an organisation. With remote video access providing the ability to view live images and browse archived digital video from a standard Internet browser, customers can monitor and control their systems from wherever it suits them," comments Mark Wilkin, group executive - product marketing. "By allowing customers virtual visiting to many locations at one time, we are saving them time and costs, while improving their overall security."

Remote video access allows customers to connect any number of cameras and locations to the service. Another key feature of the service is the archiving facilities. Full clips, or a section of a clip, can be archived for long-term storage either locally or remotely and authorised users can search archived video by time and date stamp.

Access solution can be enhanced by the installation of local archive servers, which are connected to the same network as the cameras.
