PCI encoder cards and video servers are fully integrated with Ortega's
VideoSm@t software, enabling a Canadian entertainment centre to incorporate IP based CCTV systems. The new hybrid DVR system integrates the analog camera and IP camera on the same server. Using the hybrid DVR system enables simple control interface and effective management over a wireless environment.
There are 13 apartment buildings, a mall, commercial buildings as well as an entertainment centre, all connected via a wireless network. Twenty units of SED2300/2310, two units of SED2400, two PCs of PCI4100 and four PCs of PCI5100 are included in this project. VideoSm@t software can control PCI-4100 and Video servers simultaneously, thus running two Ortega NVRs with one web based interface with multi level maps. All cameras record on motion only. At night, the cameras are monitored from the security office, which contains ten 20" LCD monitors. The operators can choose what cameras go on which screens, as well as how many views there are per screen.
ACTi provides a total solution to customer including encoder cards and video servers. For an existing analogue camera, if the camera distance is far, customers can choose video server to compress the video. If cameras are close to each other, customers can connect them to PCI cards - this application is the same as what DVRs support. For a new site, customers can install IP cameras directly. Also, from VideoSm@t software, customers can access to any camera they want to preview, and do the remote PTZ control. Therefore, ACTi and Ortega's VideoSm@t is the most efficient way to combine current analogue system and new IP system which provides a flexible hybrid nDVR solution to customers.
