Vemotion Interactive, specialists in live video transmission over low bandwidth connections, announced a new product that enables security and blue light personnel to view live footage transmitted from remote locations to the control room over GPRS/3G providing connectivity in even the most demanding network conditions.
The VBox 20 is a fully integrated unit that provides a reliable live video feed from virtually any location. The small form factor unit takes video and power inputs and uses Vemotion technology to compress and transmit live video over a variety of networks, including low bandwidth networks such as GPRS and 3G, back to a control room delivering multi-screen views of video feeds and, optionally, out to other remotely deployed operatives.
"This encoder has been designed with ease of use, reliability and flexibility in mind," explained Stewart McCone, Managing Director of Vemotion Interactive Ltd. "The small size of the unit allows it to be deployed in a variety of situations, giving maximum flexibility for operational use," added McCone.
The transmitter requires power, video and any data-enabled SIM card to work (GPRS/3G version). Simply attach the camera and switch the unit on, it's that simple.
The unit will connect to a server application which can be installed in a central control room or to any computer with a fixed IP address. Then, by installing a viewer application on a PC or mobile phone, you can view live video from wherever you are. You can even control PTZ cameras and switch between different qualities of video output, depending upon network conditions.
