Afiant series network video recorder adds Vivotek support
16 May 2008
Modern Security Solutions has enhanced the functionality of the AFIANT system, one of the UK's leading network video recorders, with support for the new VIVOTEK dual streaming range of network cameras and video servers. This will allow high quality recording of Motion JPEG for evidential purposes at the same time as low bandwidth MPEG4 for remote monitoring applications over a network or broadband connection.
This integration will widen the market for Modern Security Solutions' recently announced mobile phone/PDA application. It delivers real-time, live MPEG4 video and audio playback to a standard 3G mobile or PDA to monitor activity from any location without requiring a PC. Simultaneously, evidential quality Motion JPEG recordings can be recorded using the AFIANT network video recorder. Alerts are sent if motion is detected during predetermined hours and users can select individual recorders and cameras with full pan, tilt and zoom functionality.
According to Andrew Jones, Managing Director of Modern Security Solutions: "We are the first manufacturer of network-based security solutions to offer support for these dual streaming products from VIVOTEK. This additional capability gives our customers greater choice and flexibility when deploying security systems as well as delivering significantly higher picture quality."
"VIVOTEK is delighted to announce that the AFIANT network video recorder now fully supports our dual-streaming network cameras and video servers," added Eddy Lan, President of VIVOTEK INC. "Integrating the IP7138/IP7139 Megapixel cameras and VS7100 video server allows VIVOTEK to expand the range of surveillance solutions and applications offered to our customers. We are really excited about our joint alliance with Modern Security Solutions."
