Remote Video Response (RVR) has become one of the first remote video surveillance operations to fully integrate the new award-winning ADPRO FastTrace 2 video and audio transmission technology from Xtralis into its central station operations, bringing significant advantages to installers and end-users alike.
ADPRO FastTrace 2 has been integrated within RVR's own award-winning ‘Chameleon' command and control technology, effectively enabling operators to monitor, manage and respond to images transmitted by the ADPRO FastTrace 2 using a common Graphical User Interface (GUI).
The benefit to end users, says Colin Walters, General Manager of RVR, is that they can now take advantage of the new ADPRO FastTrace 2 without compromising any legacy ADPRO technology they may have installed. But the combination delivers more than just greater convenience: "It also brings enhanced operational efficiencies," he explains, "which in turn deliver greater return on investment".
"Such is the intelligence of the Chameleon platform that each ADPRO transmission received is recognised as belonging to a specific installation, and automatically accorded the appropriate response relevant to that installation without any intervention required by the operator."
The advantage to installers is that the ease of connectivity and commissioning is greatly enhanced: "Installers know that if they are specifying the new ADPRO FastTrace 2 monitored by RVR, the installation and commissioning time will be reduced without compromising on the ultimate performance."
The new FastTrace 2 is a single or multi-site system that monitors and transmits very high quality images using H.264 compression (allows the highest quality video with the lowest bandwidth usage). This allows operators in a central monitoring station to quickly assess a situation and take appropriate action.
Remote monitoring utilising the award winning ADPRO products provides video verified alarms at one-third of the cost of conventional security guards, allowing customers to realise a Return on Investment (ROI) in as little as 7-12 months.
ADPRO by Xtralis is the leading provider of software and hardware that delivers early, accurate and remote detection of threats to critical assets and infrastructure. ADPRO's reliability and proactive approach through the use of advanced multi-knock sensing technology delivers the lowest false alarm rates in the industry.
