Dedicated Micros - part of AD Group - announces that its enterprise level HighVu Excel system, a modular, expandable, high performance CCTV recording and IP transmission solution, has won the Product Innovation of the Year 2008 category in the PSI Premier Awards organised by PSI (Professional Security Installer) magazine. The result was announced during a high profile PSI Premier Awards Event held on 3 June 2008, at Moor Park in Hertfordshire, England.
Said Pauline Norstrom, Director of Worldwide Marketing at Dedicated Micros: "We are delighted that HighVu Excel's impressive performance characteristics have helped it to secure this important accolade. It is particularly gratifying, given that unlike many other awards, the end result is actually decided by the votes of those who work in the industry."
"The HighVu Excel enterprise range is one of our most exciting new product developments and emphasises our continuing focus on innovation. With embedded analytics and scalable video wall capability, we believe that this high performance CCTV recording and IP transmission solution represents a generational shift in the capability of systems in the enterprise field."
The HighVu Excel range delivers impressive true real time, high resolution D1/4CIF resolution capture, recording and playback, of in excess of 1024 cameras in a single seamless configuration, viewed simultaneously across 48 monitors. This makes it ideal for government, high end retail, banking, traffic and large scale multiple sites and public space surveillance.
Crucially, the HighVu Excel is a fully embedded system which operates within the NetVu Connected environment. High definition image capture offers the capability to continually record and playback in real time on all channels - including from DM's CamVu 2000 megapixel IP cameras - with lip-synced audio input available on each camera and no loss of performance unlike some PC based solutions. This makes it particularly suited for applications where a high level of image detail is required to identify suspects.
The scalable HighVu Excel is ideal for central control room solutions with a large number of cameras such as a shopping centre and, essential, for end-users, including casinos, where real-time, high quality image capture, embedded analytics, substantial storage capacities and lip-synched audio on cameras is invaluable.
The high performance D1/4CIF real time recording delivered by HighVu Excel is made possible by the use of the NetVu Connected dedicated embedded encoding platform based around the latest generation of specialised video processors from ChipWrights - also part of AD Group.
