|Infinova's V2060 Series allows automated electronic surveillance to control an entire CCTV system|
Infinova announced that the Yiwu International Commercial Centre, the largest distribution centre in the world for small commodities, in Zhejiang Province of China, is using three sets of Infinova's V2060 Series large scale matrix switchers and nearly 400 pairs of Infinova digital fibre-optic modems to transmit video images within the 2 million square metre (21.5 million square feet) facility. The structure has become the icon representing Yiwu City's modernisation.
"The economy of China has been growing and Infinova continues to tap into its modernisation programmes with its full suite of leading edge video products and systems," relates Mark S. Wilson, Infinova vice president, marketing. "For instance, our video matrix switchers are the only ones to feature Ethernet networking capability. They are also available with Video over IP (VIP) that allows users to select, view and PTZ control from four to thousands of cameras from anywhere in the world via the Internet. Our fibre-optic transmission systems feature the industry's best optical power budget, widest optical dynamic range and highest racking density."
With Infinova's V2060 video matrix switcher, Yiwu International Commercial Centre security operators can provide automated electronic surveillance or allow a single user to control an entire CCTV system of up to 1024 video inputs by 128 video outputs. In the automated environment, the user can pre-define up to 64 system tours, 64 salvos, 35 event timers, five alarm display modes and three alarm clearance modes to be performed separately on individual monitors.
Multiple models of Infinova fibre-optic modems are deployed. They feature 1, 4, 8, 12 and 16-channel video, depending on the model. For instance, 216 of the N3748 Series fibre-optic modems let the Yiwu International Commercial Centre video system transmit eight digitally encoded video channels over one optic-fibre.
Infinova recently announced that it has gone public, raising (US) $300 million, which it will use to grow both organically and through acquisitions.
